Moby Dick on a Stick

Tastes like beef. Looks like beef. And at half the price.

Minke whale eating in Iceland.

Sure glad we sent those Brits packing! I also laughed at the last paragraph about the shooting of the terrorist.

Now, if you want a good recipe for pan roasted Puffin...

Synova said...

Darn it. I didn't read far enough to get to the terrorist.

Anyhow... for the love of pete... the whole show is about eating weird sometimes-living stuff isn't it?

Or am I thinking of a different show that toured SE Asia and had the guy eating beating cobra hearts and live baby octopus?

There's another "eat weird stuff" show but the host is a big bald fellow.

Anyhow... so it's a cute Puffin. These people eat chicken, right? And pheasant? And duck? Have you ever seen anything cuter than a duck?

Puffin is a tasty Icelandic bird with a big heart.

So is Björk.

Look for a National Geographic feature following an outdoor house cat around for a day.

Roast goose.

Synova said...

Which reminds me. Goose is sometimes hard to find. I should get one for the freezer sometime soon so I don't miss out for the holidays.

There is a "Puffins" brand cereal which is quite good.

Does anyone else think that Gordon Ramsay is an enormous douchebag?

Ann Althouse said...

Oh, there once was a Puffin
Just the shape of a muffin,
And he lived on an island
In the bright blue sea!

He ate little fishes,
That were most delicious,
And he had them for supper
And he had them for tea.

But this poor little Puffin,
He couldn't play nothin',
For he hadn't anybody
To play with at all.

So he sat on his island,
And he cried for awhile, and
He felt very lonely,
And he felt very small.

Then along came the fishes,
And they said, "If you wishes,
You can have us for playmates,
Instead of for tea!"

So they now play together,
In all sorts of weather,
And the Puffin eats pancakes,
Like you and like me.


I've had that poem memorized for about half a century!

And it finally came in handy!

My entire brain is like that.

Bissage said...

Well, it looks like someone has to be the clean-up man and pick up on the “Sid & Marty Krofft” theme that Professor Althouse laid down.

Guess it’s me.

Wait!!! Is that a BADGER?!?!?!?!?
