Is a flamingo more beautiful than a turkey?
Who’s to say?
Bring our own set of aesthetic parameters to the question and it’s certainly more elegant, balletic even, and when it works it’s bang on trend subtle shades and its ‘very now’ drop shoulder-soopa-softy-feathery-jackety look, it screams super model…but thats a very human perspective.
I think there’s a distinct possibilty that the flamingo is a creature with a severe lack of confidence…Why else does it always hide its head up its arse? It can’t be just that it’s worried that it’s nose is too big, (think Linda Evangelista, deemed a major babe but she’s got a nose like a fishermans sock), or that it simply isn’t feeling very ‘pink’ today…It’s got to be more than that..
No…What we have here is a bad case of turkey jealousy.
“Mummy, mummy I dont want this long graceful neck, slender legs and soft pastel down. I want to be squat, coarsely feathered with a head like an inoperable tumour…I WANT TO BE A TURKEY !!”
“Quiet Fleming…..Just shove yer head up yer arse like the rest of us!”
