      of the five phrases learnered, Shish Mish is one. Bat.

      • I remember working in London back in the eighties, and purveyors of Shish Mish abounded. I went vegetarian in ’82, partly because I feared the mish was skewered bat.

      • Skewered bat ain’t so funny. Mind you, it used to taste pretty good . . . until I began to wonder what it actually was. Funny how the thought of something can make it taste different, isn’t it? Maybe that’s why we call bacon ‘bacon’, and not ‘pig’s arse’?

        yes it is interesting bat, I mean, that.

        Maybe, maybe or prosciutto!

      Neither do I really. Well, sort of. Because I wear a lot of black, and cover my skin mostly. When I arrived, he called me a Muslim, and I said ‘I am a Muslim nun, but mostly I am asian’. He then took that as Taliban (some how, because everything other is evil). Coupled with his frustration, of non-croatian linguistics ie banana labelling, birthed this delicacy of naming we see above foot here.
