A Note On Mealtime Etiquette

It is probably not a good idea to drive your jeep too close to a half-eaten warthog carcass …

… unless you want to seriously piss off the local dining clientele.

"Bloody tourists! Get away from my dinner!"

"Sheesh! They drive into my restaurant …

… try to steal my yummy warthog …

… point their bloody cameras at me like I'm some dumb celebrity …

 … I'm going to find another table."

Very good… glad he had a good zoom lens!

Good thing indeed; those dead warthogs can be pretty stinky.

Speedway said...

What? No "hakuna Matata? You do mean to say that Simba ate Pumbaa?

AUGH!
I'd been sitting here listening to Bach and reading Shakespeare's Richard III and I made the mistake of clicking on your link and culture just died screaming.
Thank you, Speedway, for bringing me back to the awful modern world.
Okay, so I was reading Richard III out loud and doing Olivier impressions but that still counts as culture in my house.

Speedway said...

*Snort* Hahaha!

But don't you think it's cute when Simba's little butt bounces to the beat of Timon and Pumbaa's song? What? No?

You must have heard my wail of anguish right across the Pond, Speedway.

Speedway said...

"Ca-a-an't yu feel th' lu-u-u-v tonight?"

dive said...

Speedway, I've not felt the luurve for æons beyond imagining. I'm off to bed with Bach and Shakespeare before I'm tempted to go apeshit with a chainsaw in a Disney store.
Nighty-night.

Speedway said...

Woohoo! What a film festival that would be! The Lion King, Richard the Third, and the Norwich ... oops, make that the Texas Chainsaw Massa-cree, opening soon at a cineplex near you!

Grooooooooooooooooooooooosssssssss!

A fascinating series of shots! I'll bet the warthog was "pungent". Wise to be in a jeep with a zoom lens at an appropriate distance.

I've seen a couple of articles from UK papers about finding Richard's skeleton. Very interesting! Did you ever see the movie "Looking for Richard" starring Al Pacino? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Looking_for_Richard

Such a beautiful animal. Glad she decided to take her business elsewhere.

As for his majesty, I've been following the story for many months and am interested to hear how it will fadge (for you Shakespeare lovers). He was so young, his body so grievously treated. I hope for redemption for him.

Going to bed with Bach and Shakespeare sounds prissy and steamy at the same time.

dive said...

Speedway, Gerry has two chainsaws in his shed and we have a Disney Store in Norwich. Watch the news channels …

Katherine, warthogs make great bacon, but I confess I wouldn't want to eat a raw one.

Ms.M. I'll look up the Pacino movie. Pungent is a lovely word.

Petrea, I'd love to be the kind of person capable of being both prissy and steamy, but regretfully, last night was simply an old man reading a book with some music playing.
Latest news on the Richard front is a great big, stand up, hissy-fit handbag fight between Leicester and York over who gets to keep the bones.
Royals deserve no redemption.

Petrea Burchard said...

I understand the mayor says Leicester gets to keep them. How much power does a mayor have?

dive said...

Very little over here, Petrea. It's more of a ceremonial function; mayors get to open fêtes and wear a gold(ish) chain in public, but they have no political power.
This one will run and run and will probably be very entertaining and show the world just what a bunch of parochial pedants and puffed-up, strutting little popinjays we have on our local councils.
Other than a few shouty people in York and Leicester, I imagine only Americans will care what happens to the bones. The Colonies seem strangely attached to our parasitical "royals", especially considering you guys kicked George the Third's butt in such hilarious and well-deserved fashion.
