    So THAT’S why I can’t reply! I knew there was a reason.

    Classic misdirection from the guy in the pink hat. . ..

    In Monty today they’re taking the pith.

    Hmm, all those oysters and wine at sundown… I wonder what he’s planning to do this evening.

    @Dogsniff: I always figured you were, and I think you hit the nail on the head.
    Strange thing how these avatars work, I know you don’t look like the zappa cover, but in my mind you do.

    Revenge on lousy tippers or just April Fools Day mirth?

    About the painting, and details about the artist not mentioned at Wikipedia, as far as I know.

    Even with this even more enlarged image (thanks @Baslim the begger), available from here, or the enlargement available from here (last of View All Sizes), I still can’t see what’s written on the mantlepiece tablet.

    So far, 8 works by this artist have appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog (and no, in case you were wondering, this didn’t appear on April 1 there).

    @mabrndt

    I wonder (and kind of doubt) whether it’s legible in the original. On the size that Baslim the beggar found (thanks, Baslim), with my on screen magnifier at 2x or 4x, I can still see that it’s meant for letters. At 8x and 16x it’s just huge pixels.

    My About link says the painting is inscribed with Soo gewonne Soo verteert 16 JSteen 61 on the mantlepiece. Neither Google, nor Bing, nor Babylon could translate Soo gewonne Soo verteert, so I thought it was maybe a typo (that I couldn’t visually check).

    But since then, I found this also has those words (click and drag the COLLECTIE inset if it’s hiding the words), while the English version says Easy come, easy go is on the mantlepiece tablet. So it isn’t a typo; maybe some Dutch dialect no longer in use.
