Fire up the grill!

I hear if you camp Red-Flanked Duikers near Dun Crim you can get really nice armor for Enchanters. They aggro though, so you gotta bring a party to kick some serious Duiker ass.
2004-03-03 12:17:24 AM  
Someone please tell me how to pronounce "duiker."
2004-03-03 12:19:25 AM  
When's duiker season start?
2004-03-03 12:21:57 AM  
OK, I was way off. It is 'dI-k&r.
2004-03-03 12:28:19 AM  
Aww, I want one! Cute little thing. Less dangerous than a lion, tiger or boa, I bet.
2004-03-03 01:29:09 AM  
dapups - I don't know. I'll bet it would eat your face in a heartbeat.
2004-03-03 05:01:29 AM  
Nah, they just lick ya to death.

(Cranialsodomy = closet redneck???)
2004-03-03 06:25:36 AM  
um... Duikers suck!?!
2004-03-03 06:29:58 AM  
they're vaguely erotic.

"People are hunting these animals relentlessly for meat to feed their families,"

Now that's tragic. Why cannot these people be more American & hunt them to make up for poor sexual prowess??
2004-03-03 06:33:57 AM  
"People are hunting these animals relentlessly for meat to feed their families,"

Bah... Hunt your family... leave the animals out of your breeding spree.
You people and your "Ugly ass" obsession! It's cute!
2004-03-03 06:34:45 AM

Bleh, why do we always get updates when a baby animal is born at some zoo?
2004-03-03 07:02:08 AM  

Because his momma loves him, and so does Baby J... oh never mind.
2004-03-03 07:09:17 AM  
Bleh, why do we always get updates when a baby animal is born at some zoo?

Because they're cute and they distract us from the harsh day-to-day world we live in. Sometimes it's good for a person's psyche to just stop and examine a beautiful product of nature. That's why God gave us ugly-ass-animal-being-born links and boobies links.

I wonder if he'd taste like baby veal, or if his flesh is already bruised. veal.
2004-03-03 07:12:48 AM  
I dont think you have to be a redneck to eat meat. Being that we all have like 30 feet of intestine just for such actions. Just sayin.
2004-03-03 07:14:20 AM  
Ohhhhh I see you want we should get all our protien from high profit cooporate farms nevermind I forgot my mantras for a sec
2004-03-03 07:18:54 AM  
Duiker season ...

Duiker season. FIRE!
2004-03-03 07:20:42 AM  
Ok lack of sleep has rendered my uniquely batshiat insane drivel unintelligable even to myself.
2004-03-03 07:29:01 AM  
Duiker train to zone!
2004-03-03 07:31:55 AM  
Actually if you read the article, you would find that people are killing them in such numbers that the population is in decline. If the people killing them got all their meat from "high profit corporate farms" instead of poaching them, these guys just might have a chance to be around in a few hundred years.

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it Hip_about_time, then go to sleep.

"Red-flanked duikers become sexually mature at around one year of age, so it will need to be removed from its parents before it becomes sexually mature to avoid inbreeding."

/White Trash Disaster Trailer! WoooohooooO!
2004-03-03 07:36:27 AM  
I thought our 30 feet of intestines were for digesting grains/vegetables. Carnivores have short smooth intestines.
2004-03-03 07:37:40 AM  
It looks somehow unreal, with those cold dead eyes. I say that thing's a fake made by kindergarden pupils out of pipe-cleaners and recycled washing up bottles.
2004-03-03 07:40:36 AM  
Duiker sucks?

2004-03-03 07:40:47 AM  

"Baby Veal"?
As veal is a calf (baby cow to you) doesn't that mean that a "baby veal" is either tortologous or implies that you like eating bovine embryoes?

/in a bun?
2004-03-03 07:43:50 AM  

I infer from Hip_about_time that our 30 feet of intestine is to help us eat red meat - maybe in the form of sausages?

Can you say fava beans and a nice amarone?
2004-03-03 07:44:56 AM  
will no redecks defend me from the scathing intellect of hdhale? I was just sayin that the social pressure we feel to not eat things from nature is yet another ploy to concentrate wealth at the top because killing your own food is nearly free and nobody makes any much profit from it. And I dont have the luxury of going to sleep or I assure I would have at some point since sunday morning.
2004-03-03 07:46:34 AM  
I had antelope jerky once, it was great.
2004-03-03 07:47:41 AM  
Now there's something you don't see everyday.
2004-03-03 07:48:46 AM  
Hip_about_time ~~ Actually I was refering to the grill. I've known a few of the redneck persuasion and...well... those boys will BBQ just about anything.
2004-03-03 07:52:50 AM  
We have specialiced sections in our intestines for different foods meat included, as far back as we find human remains in teh fossil record we find animal bones with them (Mmmm marrow!) we have specialiced enzymes for breaking down meat, take a look at your teeth. And statistically brain case volume to body mass ratio is directly correlated to predatory behavior in earth critters so its safe to say as the reigning king of brain size we were designed to hunt kill and eat other beings.
2004-03-03 07:54:12 AM  
Despite not being a redneck, just a Limey Tyke, I'll defend you.

When we're eating at home, I always call the meat on the table "cow", "pig", "sheep" rather than the remote names of "beef", "pork", "mutton". I mean we eat "lamb", don't we.

I rather enjoy shooting pheasants, grouse, etc. And I always eat what I kill.

With a smallholding, I raise chickens and pigs, and I eat what I raise.

We live in a world where people are too ready to divorce themselves from what they are eating - "Oh, no, I can't eat a fish with its head on. It looks too much like a real animal!"

2004-03-03 07:54:15 AM  
looks like a midget deer.

and we all know deer tastes good.

mmmmmmmmmmm. bushmeat.

/ticket to hell
2004-03-03 07:54:26 AM  
k, sorry

im too tired to fend you all off
2004-03-03 08:02:26 AM  
SatchmoR ~~ Come on now, "Cows" have big brown eyes, "Beef" comes wrapped in plastic. ;o)

Hip_about_time ~~ Feh. No sweat. Easy conclusion to reach, I wasn't real clear.
2004-03-03 08:03:24 AM  
Duike sucks.
2004-03-03 08:06:56 AM  
Yeah, and lambs are small, fluffy and love nothing more thn to gambol around in a field, but we all love roast leg of lamb. **Drool**

And cow's eyes are supposedly a delicacy in wherever cow's eyes are a delicacy.

And, also, FYI, I will fire up the BBQ at the drop of a hat in the summer (or even winter if it's dry), and I'm a Yorkshire Lad. Can't beat barbecued lard and black pudding sandwiches. **Double Drool**
2004-03-03 08:08:14 AM  
Sure they suck, that's one of the nicest things about baby mammals. They suck and have no teeth. *winks*
2004-03-03 08:10:43 AM  
Aww... it's so frikin' cute!!! I want one!

(can I get a Federal grant to raise 'em in my back yard? (probably))
2004-03-03 08:13:17 AM  
Those are cute.
2004-03-03 08:16:21 AM  
As cute as a rabbit with a pancake on its head? Don't know why, but that made me laugh. It's the bored, indulgent expression on its face.

Would you mind awfully if I were to use that as a reply to emails from stupid users when I really don't understand what they're saying?

The cat in the bap came back.

Whoever wrote the article was confused.

Around here, whenever we see something weird and don't know what to call it, it is known as a "doohickey." That other word sounds made-up.
2004-03-03 08:26:36 AM  
Thanks for that, however, poogirl's version has a banner and footer that reads:
"I have no idea what you're talking about..."
"... so here's a bunny with a pancake on its head."

Which appeals to my I-Ching sense of humour.
