I decided to take a break from all the Cartoon War reporting to go skimming and I stumbled across, of all things, a restaurant review in Australia. Lo and behold I did find such a phrase; it is so matter of fact while conjuring up the image that it struck me as some darn funny writing.
We order a prawn and octopus salad, sushi, breaded prawns, meat balls and slices of grilled beef tongue. The only real letdown is the tongue. As I pop a slice in my mouth, Popsi points out that it is the only muscle in the body that gets stronger with age. If true, then this one came from a 92-year-old cow who could talk the hind legs off a donkey. Perhaps some thinner slicing might help. Either that or I need new teeth.
Luckily this is not a fluke for later he strikes another funny chord when describing how Popsi reacts to some very good sushi.
Popsi, who is our resident sushi fiend, approves by nodding and rolling her eyes. With a mouth full of rice and raw fish this is not a pretty sight but you get her drift.
As for the decor, I have to agree that would make me a bit nervous if what the illustrator drew is truly representative of what is on the wall in that restaurant. Though I do know one bunny who would not be afraid, Bun-Bun. He would probably serve the sushi chef up in rice and fish skin if someone came after him to cook. Oh man, thinking of Yosemite Sam trying to cook hassenpfeffer and instead of Bugs Bunny, he has to deal with Bun-Bun. How's your health plan Sam?
On second thought, I really need to get to bed. Oyasumi.
