Kelley is king today, a wise king, over at Bob Sutton’s blog. (Bob Sutton wrote the The No Asshole Rule, and others.) Go leave a comment. Or, hey, do it tomorrow. Mondays are hard.
But if you are feeling chipper, if you are in a commenting mood you could perhaps bob over (no, no name pun intended–it’s English for ‘drop by’) to A Corner of Tenth-Century Europe and take a guess at what the Rorsach-like image on the back of this coin represents. I think it’s the work of a time traveller who fell through a worm hole, who–instead of
blowing up Romulus cornering wool futures chose to artistically represent some bad films of the 20th century. Like The Fly…

I took out Barbara G. Walkers book, The Woman’s Dictionary of Symbols and Sacred Objects because I felt sure that the coin thingy would be there because she has everything in that book. The nearest I could shake up and pour out is the bird lines (some may think it’s a beard) represents wisdom/words making manifest. The rest was absolute gobbledy gook. The coin maker drank too much fermented honey and barley juice. *puts book back on shelf* Oh well, thats why those coins were phased out. yep. :-)
Maybe I could figure it out if I could see the other side. Considering its age, its probably not a national symbol.
The reverse side < HREF="http://www.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/gallery/anglosaxon/images/00374R00.jpg" REL="nofollow">looks like this<>. As to whether that’s a national symbol or not, well, < HREF="http://hefenfelth.wordpress.com/2008/12/27/earliest-depiction-of-st-oswald/" REL="nofollow">that’s another argument<>… Thankyou for the link, Nicola!
Cat on one side, a drunken Poe whacking his raven on the other. (< HREF="http://www.kelleyeskridge.com/in-which-cat-poetry-is-better-than-mine/" REL="nofollow">Some cat wrote a poem about it<>–scroll down.) Works for me…
And me , because the poem was so great and funny.
