Surrealism and gluttony…

But first…
Dulltown, Europe: Today’s featured piece of classical music is Igor Stravinsky’s magnificent ‘Dance of the Big Black Snake.’ (1929). Oh, how we ducked and dived to those crazy rhythms!

Oh no! It seems that Tony Mayonnaise and Simon Doom, writers and poets from the glory days of the Hull Surrealist League, have made up their recent differences, and are best buds again! You just don’t know where you are with those bloody poets…
My friend Stella tells me that she was invited around to their place a couple of evenings ago for a celebration surrealist banquet. Hm… my invitation must have got lost in the post… Stella did however give me a copy of the quite badly designed and printed menu to share with you dear reader:

Peppermint dickie-bows with yellow custard.
Grease-ball tambourined eggs.
Long eels in rabbit-skin wraps.
Hammered whelks on Ritz crackers.
Sawdust and marmalade fritters.
Cow-head surprise.
Milk of human kindness in tiny cups.
Salt-tang walnut pinkies.
Melted rind on thin pumpernickel.
Offal orange dainties.
Loose moose goose soup.
Tickled halibut in the basket.
Cassowary beak crunch.
Warm Chardonnay in big white mugs.
Dithered liver finger snacks.
Linked doughnut chains in chocolate swim.
Gurgling swamp soil muck cake.
Lasses’ molasses in glasses.
Old sandal chunks in black beer broth.
Dangerous veal.
