TRANSCRIPT: STANDUPPER: "Do you believe this menu? - hippopotamus pate, Creindeer consomme, sea-urchin mousse, Uganda lion-loin baked in clay, llama-hump titikaka(?).......
CHEF: "Well, we tried to emphasis the natural flavour of these exotic meats - it's useless to go ahead and season it very highly, because people after all would like to know how a lion tastes, or a llama tastes - so we season it very slightly, but we have a certain recipe for all these."
STANDUPPER: Do you eat what you produce?
CHEF: "Yes, of course."
....................And you thought Japanese food was weird!! - well, that's because you're not an explorer."
