The gift of Placidus

I have been sent a Christmas card by motetus.  And what a card it is!



placidus_in_disguise_motetus


Complete with Ginormomoustache, Terrible Tartans and Wild Hair Wig! I keep going back to marvel at it. It's brilliant!  I fear the disguise will only last until he starts making snarky remarks in a strong Roman accent though...

( Yama was in the background, when I photographed it - I was going to crop him out, but then I decide I liked the juxtaposition...)

What a fabulous card - thank you for sharing! Family are now wondering why I am sitting at the computer cackling like a madwoman... Motetus is an artistic genius.

I do hope you are going to write the story that goes with this picture now...

:-D last time I wrote about Placidus, there was something of a chorus of 'hmm, enough Placidus now, write about the Legate!'

Maybe it is time at last for another dose of Placidus though. A little goes a loooooong way...

He is... magnificent. In that particularly Placidus sense of the word :-D

Oh man, his disguise is going to last, like, five minutes. He's going to walk in among the tribesman strong his mustache and thinking "I am the best spy ever," and the tribesman will instantly figure out that he's a Roman spy and...probably take the opportunity to feed him tons of bad information, because you just can't kill someone that incompetent, it's way more hilarious to watch him stroke his mustache and fake a British accent.

The opinions of the people watching Placidus stroke his moustache so proudly could indeed be pretty funny!
