Sitting Pigeon at BBQ

A good chef knows how to improvise and this talented Russian BBQ-er had lady luck on his side when he was running out of tasty morsels to add to his barbeque.

Out of nowhere comes the makings of a tasty pigeon-kabob!

Personally, I like mine plucked, gutted and smothered in Anchor Bar Honey BBQ sauce but you can't look a gift horse in the mouth...

OMG, he wouldn't!!!!

Nudist Sausage Sizzle Flops

With just 4 days to go to the US presidential election and midway through the worst financial crisis since the 1930's, spare a thought for the struggling Taranaki Naturalist's Club, south of Auckland, New Zealand. reports that the club's annual sausage sizzle and Membership drive BBQ was about as popular as a Lehman Brother's CDO.

Club president Arthur Eagle blamed the zero turnout on the rush of modern living and revealed that memberships at New Zealand's 21 Naturalist clubs were falling faster than the Kiwi dollar.

Taranaki's membership has dropped to just 60 hardy souls and the sausage "fizzle" was part of a nationwide drive for new members, specifically young families, that could allow the movement to survive.

The photo of Arthur and his "snags" made us think that perhaps the club should considering including a Charcool sausage bloke as part of it's new member welcome kit.

What do you think?
