Ali G and Duranian Ice Cream

Ali G is a comedian (Borat) who interviewed Jarvis Cocker from the band Pulp, who are a rock band, formed in Sheffield, England in 1978, by then 15-year-old school-boy.

Durian fruit, which according to Travel and food writer Richard Sterling says:

"... its odor is best described as pig-shit, turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock. It can be smelled from yards away. Despite its great local popularity, the raw fruit is forbidden from some establishments such as hotels, subways and airports, including public transportation in Southeast Asia. The PULP is used to flavour a wide variety of sweet edibles such as traditional Malay candy, ice kachang, rose biscuits, cakes, and, with a touch of modern innovation, ice cream, milkshakes, mooncakes and even cappuccino.

This is getting desparate my mate!!

may I say as an aside that Haruki Murakami's books contain superb cooking and food vignettes and are as different a read as you will ever get....if you trust me I recommend them highly, but you need to be a bit weird :smile:

Roy Clark and nan

I would love to see the solution to this but this is what I came up with:

-Roy Clark appeared in the 1982 television special "the EPCOT Center Opening Celebration"

-The United Kingdom is one of the nations represented in Epcot Center's World Showcase.

-Britain once ruled India

-Nan is a flatbread that is served with meals in areas of India

Hello Everyone

In play:

Vladimir Putin and high tea

Piet Retief and pemmican

Taj al Din al Hilali and meat

Bishop Tutu and Eskimo Pie Ice Creams

Francois Pienaar and Indian Curry

I have been completely unable to keep track of the points in this game - my apologies! I never expected it to last more than a day or three, and now it is two weeks and going strong. It is good to see some new players, and I think everyone is enjoying the fun and creativity.

I will do my best to keep track of the stories in play.

I'll try to do a points tally later today, but if you want to keep the tally going, perhaps we could have another volunteer?

I don't know if points are really needed. The fun is in the game itself.

Here's a new puzzle (to replace the two I answered):

Andy Roddick and chicharrones

Well, chef from clarens, not only do I have a minibus in Maputo but I am a rugby girl of the all black variety so

Francois Pienaar, brilliant Springbok rugby captain is probably most famous for the iconic photograph of him posing with Nelson Mandela after their 1995 World Cup victory over a much better side :smile: (they was robbed)

As a young man Nelson Mandela used to eat in an Indian curry restaurant called Kapitan's in Johannesburg, and 5 months before he was to be released from Robben Island Mandela wrote to the restaurant when he heard it was to close expressing his sadness that he would not be able to eat their curry again

ps. haven't missed a HK 7's

Andrew Mehrtens and castle beer

Andrew Mehrtens ( The Traitor) the singularly brilliant Fly half of the AB's was born in Durban South Africa and received his formative education & rugby grounding in SA

Rugby ( along with cricket, soccer {roll on 2010} braaivleis { barbeque}, and drinking beer) are our national sports in South Africa.

The team sponsors of our national rugby team, The Springboks, are SAB Millar PLC, one of the top 3 brewers in the world whose flagship beer is...Castle Lager Beer!!!

Nice one!!

Piet Retief was a leader of the Voortrekkers who set off on the Great Trek eastwards from the British colony at the Cape after a series of reforms that angered many Boers

One of the foodstuffs taken along was boerewors, a mixed meat sausage containing speck or sheeps tail fat or tallow and hung and dried to last on the trek

Pemmican, similarly, is a foodstuff containing a high proportion of fat and dried meat and used as a high energy, long lasting food originally by the native peoples of North America

Andy Hardy was played by Mickey Rooney when extremely youthful

and then when extremely old became the voice of the evil clown in the movie 'Babe, Pig in the City'

and you know the rest, chitlins being ...shield children's eyes NOW

sadly, I remember watching the original Andy Hardy series when it reached TV
