    I prefer breast-fed infants to botulism-fed.

  2. algernon | 4:10 am |

    Shame. They’re so tender at that age.

  3. algernon | 4:11 am |

    They go so well with strawberry jam.

  4. Droll not Troll | 4:22 am |

    It’s a pity that dingos can’t read.

  5. Droll not Troll | 4:47 am |

    We won’t let some lousy toxin defetus!

  6. Running Comment | 4:53 am |

    I would have thought getting botulism is the least of your problems if you’ve just been eaten.

  7. Droll not Troll | 4:55 am |

    When infants are more than a year old, there should be enough to share.

  8. Running Comment | 4:57 am |

    So now we know where the expression “enfant terrible” comes from.

  9. Droll not Troll | 5:20 am |

    For anyone thinking that jam is from Germany: The factory is in South Australia, about an hour from where i live. They also sell honey, which is probably in another bowl, just out of the pic.

    @ DnT 0520, Strawberry Jam = die Erdbeerkonfitür.

  11. Marum | 7:44 am |

    Of course, “adult” botulism, is a much more serious matter.

  12. Marum | 7:48 am |

    Infants under one year old who read this warning, will find it invaluable.

    Just how they would open the container is open to speculation.

  13. Marum | 7:52 am |

    @DNT Most of the German immigrants to South Australia came in the late 1800s , due to persecution within the Lutheran Church.

    In the wine growing areas, there was a dialect of German spoken, that was spoken nowhere else in the world. It was referred to as: Barossa Deutsch.

  14. Marum | 8:24 am |

    BTW The history of the Lutheran Church in Aust. As usual, it is characterised by a complete lack of christian charity within the various sects (schisms?) of the same religion.

    … older children contain botulinumtoxin too but in quantities so small that itstead of causing botulism they will give you a botox treatment.

  16. Algernon | 1:44 pm |

    @DNT 5:20. Its interesting when some of the photos show something local to us. I still recall the photo of a butchery in our local shopping centre, which is still there.

  17. Droll not Troll | 5:06 pm |

    @Algernon: I’m glad we still have butcher shops! A few years back, i was in the US for about 6 months and didn’t see one butcher shop. I’m told they are getting rare (pun intended, of course.)

  18. Droll not Troll | 5:34 pm |

    @ Matum: I worked in the Barossa area, (mumble) years ago. Great food and drink in that region. Same in the Hahndorf area, which is closer to where I live now.
    Never heard of Barossa Deutsch, though.
    Capt, Hahn, after whom Hahndorf was named, was Danish, and the Lutherans he brought with him in the 1800s were from Prussia. And, yup, they had a schism after they settled here.

    Thanks for asking that, you have added another word to that vast garbage bin of unrelated knowledge, I call my memory.

    sprachinsel = linguistic enclave (A little island where a particular dialect is spoken)

  20. Marum | 10:51 pm |

    @DnT Thus: Beeren Berg = Berry Mountain?

    I get it! Is it Berry Hill Farm? (or something similar)

  21. Marum | 11:28 pm |

    At Tokyo prices, I’ll bet you really get stung for the honey.
    Yes! There is nothing like eating a “little honey” for breakfast.
    You shouldn’t catch anything if you keep your tongue out of her bum, unless you’ve washed her really well first, of course.

    All’s fair, in love and war.👅 😋 👌

  22. Droll not Troll | 12:21 am |

    @Marum | 10:51 pm: It’s in a hilly area, but doesn’t seem to be noticeably on a particular hill. AFAIK it’s always known as Beerenberg Strawberry Farm.
    It only occurred to me last night that Beerenberg isn’t a family name. The business is/was owned by the Paech family for several generations. Maybe the name is historical i.e. the original family home may have been on a hill.

    Independent butcher shops have gone out of fashion, but most larger grocery stores do have meat counters where they process meat to order.

  24. Peter Chan | 3:19 pm |

    They’re used to make baby oil.

  25. Droll not Troll | 6:14 pm |

    @Long Tom | 10:05 am: I probably missed that fact amid the surprise that you can buy booze and prescription pharmaceuticals actually inside grocery stores there. Can’t do that in Australia!
    I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to find decent grocery stores wherever we went in the US.
    And I really miss Miners Ace Hardware since I got home.

  26. Marum | 6:27 pm |

    @DnT. 1814. There has been a move to have pharmaceuticals sold in stores here in Aust. As you can imagine of course, the Pharmacy Guild is stoutly resisting such a challenge to its fiefdom.

  27. Marum | 6:35 pm |

    As for grog. I could buy it in my local corner store, in Canberra in the mid 60s, when I was working there.

    As for the Pharmacy Guild. It is girding its loins, arming itself to the teeth, donning its armour, and mounting its trusty steed, and galloping into the fray.

    So that results in dontic damage due to biting its amour, and ending up in court, for mounting a horse in a pubic place, with frayed loins and teeth (probably the horse’s) stuck in its arm.

  28. Marum | 7:02 pm |

    Pondering on Barossa Deutsch. Unless you are fairly fluent in German, you might not notice. Most other languages are spoken much quicker than English, so one has to adjust one’s hearing.

    Just listen to the women (with their lighter voices) speaking Espanol on the TV. They fire out the words like machine-gun bullets. Men’s deeper voices are not quite as flexible. That is why it is unlikely, that one would hear a Bass Baritone singing “Largo e Factotum” from Figaro. Except very slowly. (It is quite a challenge for a baritone) It would lose some of its – je ne sais quoi….Nein?

    I love that word; factotum = facilitator. In other words, the local Pimp, SP bookie, sly grog merchant, you name it. As the barbers were in Aust . when I was a boy. Behind the barber’s shop, was always a Snooker and Billiards Parlour. Where all sorts of illegal gambling, to say the very least, went on.

    I looked it up:
    Where does the name Beerenberg come from?
    We use the name Beerenberg because it celebrates the German heritage of the Paech family who settled in Hahndorf, South Australia, in 1839. The name is German and means “Berry Hill”. This name is registered as a trademark in 1974. Our Managing Director is Anthony Paech who is one of the sixth generation of the Paech family at Hahndorf.

    I looked it up: FAQ on their site.

    Is there BEER in Beerenberg?

  32. Marum | 4:39 pm |

    Keine Bier, aber Erdbeeren Wein, ya.

  33. Peter Chan | 11:36 am |

    Ok, then I shall eat babies instead.
