Lost: Cargo Cult

Sometimes food is dropped from above by the mysterious Others...but some people (Hurley for one) just don't like sushi. Link to song with the word "Hurley" in it because I think this singer is much better-looking than Bono, even if he was raised in Campden Town so not properly Irish. 

P.S. This Sanford is no relation of that bad dog governor.

First of all, Hurley, a peon, it doesn't care for sushi either. Plus that man does not look like a peon to me.

Second of all, is it in the realm of possibilities that the singers in that group had imbibed some Irish spirits before singing for Hurley? And this being the case, might they not be pressed into service, so to speak?

(I'd never heard of this 'cure' for urchin stings. Your blog is so instructive, Susan. This said, sea urchins themselves are too delicious for their own good. No wonder they try to protect themselves.)

Finally, if Hurley doesn't want the sushi, I'll be glad to have some myself.

A good day to you in Oakland.

Hurley definitely looks more like a pepperoni pizza (with extra grease) kind of guy.

I love the pogues!!!!!

I also love sushi but not sea urchin (uni) which I liken to what a sewage treatment plant might taste like if one was to taste a sewage treatment plant.

I know it's harsh. but I really hate uni but in the wild - I do enjoy (looking) at them!

I think bee is on to something regarding hurley's food of choice!

What a wild and wonderful illustrated world you dwell in~

Gosh, you are way ahead of me. I finished most of my Locke illustraiton. I'm going to draw another character or two and then decide if I want to add anything to them all (backgrounds/text). So much work!

Crikey, the Pogues--and you so right that he's more attractive than Bono. Now I need to wake my family here, late at night, by cranking all my thrash-inducing Irish music, including more Pogues but also Flogging Molly.

kimy: sea urchins tasting of sewage treatment? sea urchins? sewage treatment? (I'm interrogating my taste buds here. They answer: not the ones we've eaten.)

Please come and visit Graulhet. I'll make you a spread with sea urchin roe that will wipe all thoughts of sewage treatment plants out of your head.

ArtSparker, you are welcome to come for a taste also, of course.

Yes to the Pogues and very yes to Sushi, but not off the sidewalk ; )
