Friday Ferreting

Ferreting around for something to post that is not too serious.

I've known a few South Asians in my time who were skinny.......in their early twenties. The state of skinny did not last for any time with the consumption of rich curries. The state of skinny did not really last for me either, without the consumption of many curries. A grape product is my weight undoing.


Quite probably true.


Don't mind if I do. (Click on the photo to see the small print under)


I pointed this out to Non Dreaded Nephew on a car parked outside a pub. Pls explain laddie? Ah, I think it is a bar off Smith Street in Collingwood. I think I've been there, he said. He was on the mark. It is a bar in Smith Street Collingwood but I don't see any nearby Kent Street on the electric street map. Clever advertising really. I see it, take a photo and write about it, except even though I have a diverse range of readers, you are just all so the wrong demographic.

    1. EC, actually R is not bad at spotting the quirky when we are out and about.

  2. Humor is so cultural! First I thought: how informative. Then I read your tag: humour... humo(u)r?

    1. St G, not exactly rolling on the floor humour, but I thought mildly amusing. Humour is often cultural but I times I can be too subtle for people to understand. I think I will edit the Italian Boys wine picture, as it has to be larger to see the small print.

  3. "Our planet is the only one with beer. Look after it".
    Cute :)

    Look after the beer or look after the planet? I remember a time when the lads (my sons and their mates) would say stuff the planet; just protect the beer.

    1. Hels, see how well barley grows in the post climate change world. There will be no beer and we will be fortunate to have enough water to drink. See what the lads make of that.

  4. Enough beer is consumed in Oregon, too and made. Micro brew heaven. I am not a drinker, except for an occasional Margarita, very occasional. I don't drink them alone, you see.

    1. Strayer I have tasted Bud and I am very pleased that there are micro brewers as frankly, Bud is awful. I rather like a Margarita myself. We had quite a few during last year's Euro holiday as we didn't have to directly pay for drinks.

  5. I'm liking the two fat indians and also the wine label for two italian boys! Clever marketing with the pick me up tag.

    1. Craig, I can't imagine what you would do with two Italian Boys if you took them home. I am rather distracted by a forthcoming work social barbeque where apparently there will be a spit roast.

    2. Andrew - I think you could imagine very well. Ticket to Bologna booked (I jest). And I'm not touching the spit roast with a barge pole.

  6. Curries have made the Asians chubby, grape product has made you chubby, doughnuts and ice cream has made me chubby...I wonder what has made others chubby.
    What's your vice people? come on 'fess up.

    1. Too much of lots of good things. And sadly, chubby would be flattering.

    2. River, the question should surely be a post on its own. My diet is quite good, so I can only put typical male belly down to wine.

      EC, are you grotesque? You cleverly have never indicated your name or posted a photo of yourself. We will just use our imaginations with the knowledge that you are mostly a nice person and we like you.

  9. I'm going to do a post on bumper stickers soon.

    1. Susie, much to interest and amuse can be found on bumpers. Although, you see as many as you used to.

  10. Interesting boys. Love grapes but don't eat many...was once like a bean pole, for years until!
