I'd like to use this pace for miscellaneous matters that don't fit elsewhere

Thanks

Yes, well, penguin legs don't get so easily tangled.... 

 

... the alcohol squeezed from an inebriated kiwi is about 50% proof ... recycled, concentrated, filtered, reconstituted, & a blend of what everyone was drinking, so has a complex (to say the least) flavour ... the only problem is it is not exactly fresh...

Hmmm, yes, if Masher was going to open a bar with this interesting alcoholic beverage I’m not sure how many takers there would be. As Croix found dodos so delicious I had thought of the possibility of opening a Kentucky Fried Dodo on the iceberg. A special could be offered on a combo of a unique alcoholic beverage filtered through kiwis combined with a revived previously extinct and now dead again fried dodo. I’m not quite sure of the appeal but you never know, the most unusual business ventures can succeed.

Instead of 1/4 pounder, the serving would be 1/2 stoner - enough for the whole family!, Kiwi Keg-battered scallops, or (for Xmas) Kiwi Keg flavoured Egg Nogg, milkshakes, Kiwi(alcoholic)fruit cake, -ball, -pudding, -mince pies, -custard, (of-course)... -chocolates ... I'd better get cooking ....  I might need some more kiwis, too, please!

 

& now we have all these delivery services, their apps & such, & a yeti in need of a career change, (the yeti has their own bike), because the news cycle is so short no-one will be interested in orbiting yetis tomorrow ...  it really doesn't matter where you base your KFD business from, iceberg or orbit, it really won't matter, except the yeti is wanting a change of scenery & NASA won't keep paying the living allowance forever....

Ah, wonderful, flavoursome ideas there MK. Let’s get this Kentucky Fried Dodo, Bar and Kiwi-flavoured extravaganza off the ground.

 

And, yes, the yeti on flying bicycle is our very own version of Uber Eats. Perhaps the service could be named Dodo Deliveries. What a shock people will get with a yeti at their door with a box containing the once extinct dodo. Two seemingly impossible sightings in one day - yeti and dodo.

 

Little did Croix know his iceberg was to become a fast food factory!

If Croix hasn't caught on yet, he'll certainly know when I begin extensive renovations to the fireplace.

I've begun painting the signage. A blue background, with a yeti on flying bike, with a dodo in the baskets, one behind & one in front. Say 'cheesey!'

 

I was thinking, we might also need a nutrition warning stating that the products may contain a greater than average amount of traces of nuts, eggs, wheat, fish & feathers.

 

P.s., (otherwise known as the fine print), I'm doing my level best to not mention actual trade or brand names. Wouldn't want the owners of these names getting any wrong or unfortunate ideas in relation to anything we are saying. As I've often heard, any similarity is entirely co-incidental.

Oh, fabulous graphic design work MK! The fireplace could be a wonderful feature in this fast food restaurant and bar, or perhaps you have plans for a pizza oven? This iceberg will be a drawcard for the entire southern ocean.

 

Thanks for the tip about the trade names. I didn’t even think of that. Perhaps some potential names are:

 

  • Delicious Dodos
  • Dodo Delights
  • Essence of Kiwi
  • Extinction Eatery, Bar and Grill
  • The Kiwi and Dodo (as in classic UK pub names)
  • Rare Flavours

Dear you two mischief makers~

I'm not use a fireplace on an iceberg lends itself to long term planning 😞 Also any beverage 'filtered though kiwis' has the appeal you might have hoped for - though I'm sure the kiwis would be happy enough to do the filtering.

 

What do you call a moa that sits on you?

A moa-constrictor !

The renovations to the fireplace are intended to accommodate the large items & the amount of servings we will be preparing - but hey, it it adds to the atmosphere, why not have that room also be for dine-in customers? I'm just not sure insurance will cover tripping over Inebriated Kiwis.

 

My thought also is that we may wish to diversify so the name can't be too specific. What about:

  • Exotic Eats & Bar
  • Exotic Feast & Bar
  • The Irregular Plate
  • Game On!
  • Surf, Turf & Slurp

Books:

  • The Instinctual Gourmet
  • The Present-day Paleolithic's Playbook
  • Mythical Beasts & How to Eat Them ... (better not, you don't know exactly what you'll be getting)

Hello Croix and MK,

 

Croix, your joke is as torturous as our cuisine 😂

 

MK, excellent suggestions. The Irregular Plate and The Instinctual Gourmet appeal to me. Yes, we might not want to give away the key ingredients in our brand name. I’m sure we will be giving Heston Blumenthal a run for his money who is unlikely to have incorporated resurrected extinct animals yet in his unusual creations.

 

 I tried consulting the insurance company regarding professional indemnity insurance with regard to the tripping hazard of inebriated kiwis. It turns out to be very expensive! We could have guests sign a clause that they enter at their own risk and also eat at their own risk?!

 

Hopefully the preparations will be complete soon for our grand opening. I can see the penguins working as waitstaff. They already look like they’re wearing formal tuxedos with their black and white colouring, and they have much experience at avoiding kiwis sprawled on the iceberg. This will be a fascinating combination of fine dining and the primordial feasting!

 

Hugs,

ER
