983 Riddle Raffle: MAY 21- MAY 28
‘FRENCH KISS’ The picture riddle from the East Village, first week in June, 2010  artists’ note by John Sunderland

The inspiration for ‘French Kiss’ came from my memories of my first French Greeting- being kissed on both sides of  the face by a french person, (rather than the french kiss, full on back of the throat job).
In this illustration, the clues are; the embarrassed look on the young man’s face, (I remember what that felt like coming from a shy English background). The chap is intentionally wimpish, the french rail ticket in his pocket tells you where he is, the red-white and blue cravat, could be English, could be French. However on the obscurity level I think it ranks a 7 from a possible 10 and if you got it, you must be a genius, congratulations!
