Chowhounding in 600,000 B.C.

... or 4,000 B.C. depending on your leanings.

"The thing in the water with the sharp things is better than the flat slimy thing."

"You have to put it over that hot stuff first."

"No you don't. Luddite."

"How did those bitter weeds turn out?"

"I'm still alive, aren't I? But you can't put those in the hot stuff. They go away entirely."

"The weeds with the round things on them are better than the bushy weeds."

"No they're not. Luddite."

"I miss the liquid from those hard round things the size of your head. We need to develop better technology for opening them. Anyone got ideas?"

  1. Pfft. Those weeds with the round things on them are SO overdone. And I just can't gather from that valley anymore since Gog put it in his cave painting.

    1. Rumor has it that up by the peninsula that there is an old man that eats a certain part of that puffy fish that normally kills you.

      1. re: Popkin

        Yeah, but he's really good with that sharp rock thingy of his.

      2. And which flat slimey thing in the water are you grunting about? The one in the hard thing, or the flat slimey thing that swims by itself? The one in the hard thing is good without putting it in that hot stuff (I think the hot stuff is maybe the breath of a powerful something).

        1. re: hungry_pangolin

          The flat slimy thing that swims by itself. (As previously mentioned, I'm impaired at opening hard things.)

          Picture attached.

        2. which cave shall we eat at tonight?
          how did you know that the ostrich egg would be better fried in hyena fat than boiled in water?
          wish I could get that honey without being almost stung to death
          those damn monkeys have been in our stores again
          take the kids hunting with you today, I gotta do the laundry in that croc infested river

            By the way, have you ever tried "croc"? I hear it's a lot like those fat things with feathers that don't go into the sky.

          2. MY SO makes the best malva and amarath hot dish. Adds a bit of ground tapir, bamboo rat and smartweeds (if in season) and I am in trance. Does anyone else out there rinse curlews before pickling?
