Having Mum for dinner

Apropos the previous post........



Here's a comment on this post from W. Baker. Really good:

"That's a funny - and, yet, serious picture, Savant. Let's just say, for the sake of argument, that it wasn't Photoshopped, and that it was a holiday snap of some stupid slag from the Midlands on a 'eco' trip.She's in the Amazon obviously thinking that Christian - or post-Christian - mores tolerate nude sunbathing; and her diversity training since nursery school assures her that the natives are gentle souls with a penchant for loin clothes and really cool body paint....

It's never crossed the poor gal's mind that Piranha and Candiru aren't very good for your health.That's the West in a picture: oblivious to the reality of barbaric, non-christian cultures who generally hold women in the same regard as they hold dogs or goats, and, yet thinking the complete opposite."

Great comment WB. In fact I've edited the post to include it.

Obviously that pic is in the Australian outback, not the Amazon rain forests or have Abos now immigrated to Brazil?
