He was here last week....

Somewhere on the planet is a peacock named Herman.
He has secretly discovered the answers to all the mysteries that have puzzled astrophysicists. He speaks ten languages fluently and knows exactly how to reverse global warming completely within the next six years.
But, more importantly, he is delicious.

heh, you used "her man" and "peacock" together.

Was that intentional, or just delicious?

Whall: It was so delicious I'm going back for seconds.

Have you ever heard a peackock scream? They sound just like a woman being throttled... or rather what I imagine a woman being throttled would sound like. It's very unsettling. I don't think I'd want one for a pet. But maybe Herman would be nice to have over for dinner.

Janna said...

Kyle/Fred: I was hoping you'd say that.

EvilGenius: Slightly gamier than chicken, but close!

Marilyn: I've never heard one scream... wow, that sounds freaky. There's a farm somewhere around here that has peacocks and peahens (I forget exactly where it is). Sometimes I've actually seen them crossing the road. If one happened to wander over here and scream in the middle of the night, it would probably scare me to death.

I'm with Marilyn...the sound is not pleasant. I used to go on retreat in the Southern California hills where peacocks run free. Right in the most quiet and reflective part of the retreat we'd hear this cry of murder...very unsettling!

Janna said...

Steve: Wow! Cool!

Travis said...

So what you're saying here is, "Screw global warming, I'm hungry!"

Is that it?

Mo said...

I totally need to get a recording of a peacock, drive to your house, and play it under your bedroom window late at night.
Aren't you glad I don't have a car?

Janna said...

Travis: I AM hungry...

Morgen: You must have a deep-seated desire to be responsible for my untimely death of cardiac arrest.
