Silly prunt!

A prunt at the bottom of a Victorian glass bowl. A prunt is a decorative blob of glass fused to another piece of glass. Alternatively it could be a decorated pontil or punty scar (the piece of glass left when the glass blower's rod is removed

The tile of this post is just the fourth example on Google of prunt appearing directly after silly. To create the first ever incidence of a particular phrase on google I give you, in homage to novelist Henry Green, "punty fingers".

Don't worry if mush of this post makes no sense. It makes little sense to me either!

It does look like it's a prunt on Beelzebub's favourite bowl!

Looks like a bowl made of Jello to me. A Punty dessert...Just add brunt ice cream.

Now I look at it Claude you are right. Brunt ice cream is a perfect choice

Thought you were talking about Gordon Brown for a sec there.

Y'know, he really reminds me of a victorian vase. Specially one named after a woman's private parts ;-)

You may be right, but it looks more like a wormhole through space and time to me. Careful how you go throught these damn things by the way, or you can come out with bits messed up. (I come to you from another time... 26 Fed 2013 to be precise)
