I thought more of a toad but I can see the tortoise in him, now you mention it.

Apolloanddaphne Tue 28-Jul-20 21:23:30

I just saw him on TV and thought tortoise.

I've always thought tortoise. I find it very distracting because whenever I see him I just think "tortoise".

Not in a judgemental way, you understand, just, "Oh, tortoise."

Until he opens his gob. Then I think other things. Some also visage-related. Some not.

More like a mean-eyed bullfrog.

Don't be so tight. Tortoises - and toads and frogs - are lovely.

TheMandalorian Tue 28-Jul-20 22:41:13

Cruel to tortoises surely. I'd go with toad.

JohnnyMcGrathSaysFuckOff Tue 28-Jul-20 22:43:33

Maximum toad.

PapsofJura Tue 28-Jul-20 22:49:31

I find these posts quite hateful.

What have tortoises or even bullfrogs done to deserve such a comparison.

Manolin Tue 28-Jul-20 22:49:36

Yes, I’ve always thought tortoise too. Perhaps with an element of Lester Piggott.

Manolin Tue 28-Jul-20 22:51:10

And Zippy.

He’s always reminded me very strongly of this guy from the Disney Alice In Wonderland film.

crankysaurus Tue 28-Jul-20 22:53:48

Maybe he really is a tortoise and it's just that his mask is finally slipping.

MinnieMousse Tue 28-Jul-20 22:54:53

I've always thought something in the Toad family. At least if he was a tortoise he could crawl back into his own shell.

Manolin Tue 28-Jul-20 22:56:10

@Elledouble is that character called Bill or something, lizard that goes shooting up a chimney? Omg that brings back memories. The moom-raths?

BilboBercow Tue 28-Jul-20 22:57:23

Toad of Toad Hall

Why are you being so mean to tortoises...

I have a tortoise and he’s beautiful...ish 😳

But certainly much more attractive than farage

YesItsMeIDontCare Tue 28-Jul-20 22:59:15

I used to have a cat called Toad, he was lovely.

So quit with Nige comparisons 🤬

Elledouble Tue 28-Jul-20 23:01:03

@Manolin yes - vaguely remember Alice mournfully saying “poor old Bill” after he’s fired up into the sky...

Old frog face farage 🙃

NameChange84 Wed 29-Jul-20 00:55:44

Now I can’t unsee it. I mean...yeah. Very reptilian.

ChristmasCarcass Wed 29-Jul-20 01:11:12

You’re all wrong. Trout. Look at those lips, and bulging glassy eyes. Singing trout.

Tillygetsit Wed 29-Jul-20 03:55:13

How very dare you. I have two beautiful tortoises who are extremely offended by your comparison.
He looks like a bullfrog.

Apolloanddaphne Wed 29-Jul-20 05:24:32

I am sorry I have offended all tortoises. We had one when I was a child. Peak Blue Peter I believe.
