That is GREAT! And, I might add, his snout is extremly delectable! Exquisite, even.

I think he needs a soundtrack.

Only Snag would find it delectable...

I bet it is indeed... toothsome. Get ready for his new recipe- the Snout Explosion!

Brando said...

I want to take him into my yurt.

I know that's not intended this way, but that's the best pick-up line ever.

After the show, we could share yogurt in my yurt.

Is he pigeon toed in reverse? What would that be?

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

What would that be?

A pre-existing condition and reason for recission.

This week I’m going to tell you some of the many interesting things you can do with a yak. There’s yak a l’orange, yak pasties, yak kebab, yak fingers, yak on a spit — and yak in its jacket. But my family’s favourite is a simply scrumptious dessert — coupe yak. Take your yak, pluck it and bone it — take an ordinary saucepan, the type you use for broiling hippopotamus, when its tender, cool it and smother it in raspberry ice cream, sprinkle on a little ground coconut — three tons should be enough — and serve with a hip bath of custard. Some people claim that the coconut and raspberry ice cream disguise the natural flavour of the yak meat — but when I served my husband with it his immediate reaction on tasting it was Yak.

The doktor's right - the raspberry plays nicely off the yak's unctuousness.

Yakety-yak, don't talk back.

Also:

This sounds like it was lifted directly from Snag's cookbook...

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I wish to point out that it is improper to broil in a saucepan.

I'm calling Bimler Shenanigans.

Lifted directly from Round the Horne scripts, in fact.

Call me 'Shenanigans' all you like and I will not answer. One of the cats might answer, however. Especially if it thinks you might feed it.

Snag? Are you really Marty Feldman? Are you writing this blog posthumously?

Especially if it thinks you might feed it.

Feed it to what??
