'The look of great white predation,' Part II
Getting into the Shark Week swing of things, Charles
nicely ties together John Singleton Copley, his materpiece 'Watson and the Shark,' Copley Square and the Museum of Fine Arts. ... As a bonus, he also posts on mouth-watering fried cakes
, not to be confused with doughnuts, though he acknowledges the cakes are 'made and served as we imagine doughnuts must have been in a time before mass production ruined something that needs to be fresh and warm.' ... I still think someone could make a mint by making old-fashioned hot, crusty doughnuts, served fresh every Sunday morning at a neighborhood bakery. Just plain, sugar and cinnamon in greasy brown bags. ...
As for Charles' assertion that Hub Blog was "shamelessly trying to drive traffic to his blog via his 'Shark Week' post" yesterday, I must protest. Sure, I mentioned Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Hot chicks!, Sex, nude photos etc. in a post. But if I was really trying to drive traffic to a site via search engines, don't you think I would have added ménage à trois to the same sentence or post? I didn't even mention Angelina Jolie and Kate Hudson. ... And the painting above of a blood-thirsty killing machine that causes deep primal fear and fascination among humans has NOTHING to do with attracting readers.
