The etiquette of the tamale

I hate to confuse this probably intelligent discussion but...

According to "Matilda's Guide to Wild and Domestic Latin-American Edibles", the wild tamale is hunted on horseback using trained dogs.
Of course a tamale is no match for horsemen and dogs so when the tamale submits, exhausted, all participants stop, catch their collective breaths, shake hands and look forward to the next hunt.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is "etiquette".

Note: No tamales or other lifeforms were harmed in this scenerio.

But the dogs are still hungry, Jose!?!

Someone always has a saddlebag full of Alpo. For the dogs and Vin Diesel.

Vin Diesel is a Ta Male (as in "his time is past")

Perhaps, but Riddick lives on.

Like Timmy and Lassie, like Rusty and Rin Tin Tin, he will live in our hearts forever.

That explains the weird angina pains I've been having recently.

I fear for your state of health.

There's not room enough for 4 in my ventricles, alas.

Perhaps if you didn't reach so far for a joke, there would be less strain.

(Zen! Stop that smart-ass shit! Lynskey is the one you want. Mikey is our friend!)

Yes, yes, I know. It's the rabies. I missed my shot this morning.

Do I understand correctly there are normal angina pains to be enjoyed also?

MSW (MSW), Tuesday, 17 May 2005 13:22 (sixteen years ago) link

one year passes...
I am not a pain!

Tu n'es pas un pain?

Still better than asking after your sister, Va, though.

M. White (Miguelito), Monday, 11 September 2006 14:19 (fifteen years ago) link

My sister's fine------ £60, and points on her driving licence!!

Geoffrey Judge ( Ivor Feltersnatch), Thursday, 14 September 2006 10:40 (fifteen years ago) link

That's ambiguous at best, Geoffrey. £60 for what? And talking about points unknown, but why should I care to visit her driving license?

M. White (Miguelito), Thursday, 14 September 2006 17:05 (fifteen years ago) link

His sister's name is Va Va Voom.

C J (C J), Thursday, 14 September 2006 18:10 (fifteen years ago) link

Sounds suspiciously like a nom de guerre. She's not in HR, is she?

M. White (Miguelito), Thursday, 14 September 2006 19:56 (fifteen years ago) link

six months pass...
Is Ned still pursuing the aforementioned tamale?

C J, Thursday, 15 March 2007 08:50 (fourteen years ago) link

lol didn't realize this thread was in AAD

(•̪●) (carne asada), Tuesday, 22 December 2020 15:06 (eleven months ago) link

even as the existential horror of participation in an Ask A Drunk thread slowly dawns upon carne asada, tiny particles of dusty death descend gently, covering their post and preparing it for further fossilization in the lower depths of ilx's dark past
