Foo meets the Bowerbirds

Look who jumped up out of a cupboard under construction, today.

(Click to check the eye colour!)My memory of this character was that he always signed his presence: "Foo Woz 'ere". However Wikipedia gives a more grammatical version, with the classic image - a little bald guy (or in some cases, with a bit of hairy fuzz) peering over a wall, with his fingers just poking over, gripping the wall. And the subscript: "Foo was here".
In case you missed the eyes, I think Foo has spent too long admiring the Bowerbirds, and some of their eye character has rubbed off on him.
Bowerbirds make good builders, too.
My brother's business name is "Bower Builders".

Someone had fun putting the bird heads around the face! Great photoshop skills! (or whatever program you use!!)

Hi Mick
Thanks, yes I did get a bit carried away, at the end of a long day/week.
It wasn't just moving the birds in, but I tweaked his eyes, which are not normally that colour.
Anyway, he is still speaking to me, this morning (Just threatening to confiscate my Camera).

This could be the premise for a new superhero... BowerMan!
He shoots purple lasers from his eyes, and uses his power to manipulate any blue material to his will.

Hi Mark
Nice one!
Unfortunately, family sensitivities suggest it is appropriate to remove the heavily worked image, but you got to see it, and the joke!
My brother appreciated your comment.
