Arcimboldo:: No thanks, I’m stuffed.

Winnie the Pooh: How about some tea or coffee? Or CAKE?

Arcimboldo: Now you know I can never say no to a piece of cake. Shall I paint your portrait in Madeira?

Winnie the Pooh: I’ve been asked to interview you, so you must be important in some way, can you tell me why that might be?

Arcimboldo:: Why, I’m the Great-Grandfather of Surrealism, of course. I also do a fine sideline in culinary aesthetics.

Winnie the Pooh: What is it that you do? Tiddley Pom.

Arcimboldo: I see dreams in food. It’s a gift, and a curse.

Winnie the Pooh: You paint pictures of WHAT? Tiddley Pom.

Arcimboldo: Precisely.

Winnie the Pooh: Do you keep bees?

Arcimboldo: No. I set them free.

Winnie the Pooh: How strongly do you think the loss of Frank Sidebottom will be felt across the world?

Arcimboldo: If he’d been just a touch more fruity we would have been dealing with a cataclysmic chain of events.

Winnie the Pooh: Have you seen piglet?

Arcimboldo: Oops. Ask Emperor Rudolf. There may be some scratchings left.

Winnie the Pooh: Would you like some hunny?

Arcimboldo: No, thank you, I’m stuffed.

Winnie the Pooh: Do you have any hunny?

Arcimboldo: I’m sure I can get hold of some, but I’m terribly busy.

Winnie the Pooh: Can all bears talk?

Arcimboldo: Of course!

Winnie the Pooh: If you were me, and I was you, and you were interviewing me as you, what would you ask yourself, Mr. Arcimboldo?

Arcimboldo: Where’s the lavatory?

Winnie the Pooh:
I think I need help
Tiddley Dee
Shall we go see
Tiddley DEE
a WOL?

Arcimboldo: Only if we can bring vegetables.
