I admit, I had never noticed the Venus of Willendorf’s hair.
The scanner has debris that made my think my screen was dirty. The animal spoonerism post mad me think my week-old laptop was cracked.
Yep, that’s why it wasn’t called “Thru a scanner immaculately” .
Sigh. I remember people teasing CIDU Bill for taking bad digital pictures of New Yorker cartoons instead of scanning them or finding them online. I think I once proposed we all chip in to buy him a scanner.
Well I’ll match 4 with E. Salvador Dali (whose museums we have just been discussing!) with the up-flying waxed mustache tendrils.
Okay, and 9 = H, one of their little jokes.
Princess Leia was the only one I got without looking at the names.
3 = g ?
cxp, I agree with 3 = g — and probably Mark M does too, if 3 was what he picked for Princess Leia.
I suggest 7 = a, Frida Kahlo and the picture is her eyebrow.
1 d Angela Davis
2 f Jo Baker
3 g Princess Leia
4 e Salvador Dali
5 b Venus of Willendorf
6 i Willie Nelson / Renata Adler
7 a Frida Kahlo ?
8 c Prince Valiant
9 h Mr. Clean
“7 a Frida Kahlo ?”
Yea, that’s right. Those are her eyebrows.
…as deety said. Sorry, didn’t notice that comment.
The official answer key as published in the magazine:
1 (d); 2 (f); 3 (g); 4 (e); 5 (b); 6 (i); 7 (a); 8 (c); 9 (h).
