The Art Critic

The Art Critic.

A cockney and his wife were visiting the Royal Academy Exhibition, when they came to a painting called “Hawking in the Olden Days.”

“'Awking’ in the Olden Days,” exclaimed the Cockney. “My, they didn't ‘arf do it well—on ‘orseback an’ all!”

“But what were they ’awking, ’Enery?” asked his wife.

“Blessed if I know,” replied the puzzled Cockney, “unless they're trying to sell them blooming parrots!”
