It’s hard to be enthusiastic when you’re so sheepish.

One of our senior cabinet ministers in th old Joh Bjelke Petersen days….Namely Russ Hinze. Was replying to a mad greenie on the issue of culling Dingoes.

She said: “Oh! Shooting them is so cruel. Can’t we just round them up, and castrate them, and set them free again?”

Hinzie replied: ” My dear girl! You misunderstand the problem. The Dingoes are Killing the sheep. NOT F—ING THEM!!!”

Better an enthusiastic mutton eaten with hands than a rude and unreasonable chicken not eaten at all

@DnT: As long as it comes out alright in the end, what’s the diff? I think it’s basically the same as what you get if you go to Kwikee Mart and get a “Big Goat”

“Enthusiastic mutton” really IS funny but the dish in question (beshbarmak or peshparmak) is normally eaten without a fork or a spoon; even the name implies it as “pesh parmak” in most languages of the Turk group means “five fingers”. E.g. the Pentadactilos mountains (Cyprus) in Turkish are called Peshparmak.

@Long Tom 2146. But it easily could have been an Aardvark. The plural of which in good Afrkaans/German tradition is Aardvarken.

Is eating Aardvarken easy? No, it’s aardvark.

May you enjoy; Llots of good more than one Aardvark. 🙄

Russian people eat with their hands. People from the rest of the world eat with their mouths.
