Ok, so, I want to know whether its just me who would pick out the weird thing in this (funny) post of voices at our friends' London Mini-bar (notice the quip: '"the karma sutra IS open source dude").
I want to start a Mini-bar in Johannesburg but I think it will have to involve a new definition of 'geek'. Did you know that 'the word "geek" originates with side-show "circus geeks" — performers at carnivals who swallow various live animals, live insects, and so forth. Sometimes this would extend to biting the heads off of chickens or other small livestock.' (Thank you, Wikipedia)
I personally think it cruel to add 'and so forth' after such a vivid image. Perhaps they are trying to keep the image of geeks relatively clean by brushing over their more horrible pasttimes. For example, what they meant to say was: The geeks would bite the heads off small animals and then squirt the blood through their front teeth... and so forth. Or, the geeks would swallow small animals and then pull their organs through their nose... and so forth. Or, the geeks would hypnotise the small animal and make it dance a jig... and so forth.
Thank you Powerbooktrance for the pic.
