A Fond Farewell

It's Wacky Wednesday time again folks, and sadly, over the last few days the world has seen the passing of a few true icons. All trailblazers in their own right, and all with their own unique sense of style.
The country clubers from The Hamptons to La Jolla are mourning the death of famed designer Lily Pulitzer with her preppy pink and green frocks adorning the chosen few who can afford the outrageous price tags to match the outrageous patterns.
Ah, then the 50's generation, and perhaps some baby boomers too, are sad about the loss of squeaky clean, girl next door Annette Funicello, the fresh faced mouseketeer who probably wouldn't say shit if she stepped in it.
And across the pond, I'm sure the Brits are keepin' a stiff upper lip as they bid farewell to former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, the ultra conservative who was rarely seen without her signature strand of pearls.

Now try as I may, try as I might, I was unable to find an image on the web that morphed the most recognizable trait of these three icons into one solo image so we could bid them all adieu in one fell swoop. Come on folks, I can't be the only one to have thought of this: The Iron Lady's famous face atop the latest Lily design with Micky Mouse ears on her head. If any of you are savvy enough to create such a work of art, please indulge us. What a way for all of these ladies to be memorialized forevah!!!!!

  3. Thatcher was one mean lady, I can see why her own party called mutiny to cast her out of office.

  4. One would never say shit, one flashed shit, and all the other said is shit, damn that's a lot of shit.

  5. Morphing those three into one picture..no problem. That is what Photoshop is for. You say the word and the mouse ears go onto Thatcher.

    1. Oh please indulge me. I'm a computer dinosaur and don't know how to use Photoshop. Can you put Thatcher in a stupid ass pink and green Lily frock too?

  6. Genius idea to incorporate the 3 together. I really am sad about Annette. I grew up watching the mickey mouse club and all the beach movies.

  7. I'm just glad Annette isn't suffering anymore, and Margaret can see her Dennis again.

    1. Maybe that's why I didn't love Margaret Thatcher. I'm not a samurai.
