ear ear

I’m afraid I couldn’t resist posting this lovely Bamforth postcard which combines the to last two blog themes (ears and birds!). It features a cartoon by the artist D. Tempest showing a deaf old man with an ear trumpet talking to his parrot: “What do you say?” I said “Why don’t you fill the ruddy thing with seed!”
It was posted to an address in Leeds in 1948. Bamforth postcards were of course published nearby in Holmfirth. This is a fairly unusual example as I haven’t yet managed to spot any sexual inuendo in the cartoon (maybe I’m just innocent!).
