I just hope that more people will ignore the fatalism of the argument that we are beyond repair. We are not beyond repair. We are never beyond repair. - AOC

I think they are Spanish originally? Maybe Mexican?

I saw one try to fly off with a squirrel the other day. Squirrel bit the heck out of the seagull and got dropped. So a Chi Hoo-wah hoo-wah is not out of the realm of possibility....

(They're Mexican.)

I think there’s a lot of people who seem not to have seen Monty pythons the holy grail and aren’t getting the joke..... [smiley=laugh4.gif] [smiley=laugh4.gif].

😂😂. No....you need to go on utube and put in Monty Python coconuts to get the joke.....   boy, I’m showing my age.....Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a classic......parts of it were filmed at Doune Castle outside of Stirling , scotland and if you visit, the audio tour is narrated by John Cleese and as you follow the tour, they play the parts of the movie in the locations of the castle where they were filmed......

I’m going to guess that you never saw the movie if you didn’t catch the African or European joke right away.  If you want a laugh, you have to watch it.  Monty Python at their finest.  😂😂There’s quite  a few famous scenes from the movie.....the black knight.....knights who say Née....killer bunny....French taunting....what’s your favorite colour......if anyone has ever quoted ‘’ ‘‘tis just a flesh wound’’ to you, you’ll know what they’re referencing too after watching The Holy Grail.....😂😂😂

I have a great video of my sister and I outside Doune Castle, 'riding horses' with coconuts.   ;D

 [smiley=laugh3.gif]. When I visited Doune Castle a few years ago I was so upset I forgot to bring coconuts, especially since I live in Hawaii so there was no excuse for it....😂😂 but I did have fun standing at the top yelling “” Fetche la vache “”. Just wanted a toy cow to toss over the edge to make it complete ......🤪

Yes, but the beauty of my gag was that camoscato was referencing the bird and I said, "I think they are Spanish originally? Maybe Mexican?" which was obviously referencing the Chihuahua!

Then (as what is known as a "callback" in the comedy trade) when Honolulubeachbunny says it was a Monty Python bit, I said, "no, it was the Two Ronnies", again misunderstanding. 

This is my "A game" stuff here...
