oktoberfest

oktoberfest

it looks like SO much fun! photos from the big picture.

my sister-in-law is german, and her entire family & all her friends came from germany to south africa for their wedding, and i have never ever seen anyone drink like the germans can. and not fall down drunk either, they just keep going and going. they were like the energizer bunnies of drinking and revelry. in fact, the wedding was a 3 day affair in probably the hottest february weather i have ever experienced, and while i was lying in the shade somewhere fanning myself, the germans were sitting in the full on sun going lobster red and drinking beer and wine like it was going out of fashion.

first steri stumpie billboard ever, how classic! for those non-afrikaans speakers, the headline reads “we flavour milk”. simple, to the point – i like that. i would have loved to drink my steri stumpies from glass bottles, too – industry people take note. strawberry geur for me, please.

A series of photographs documenting former Death Row prisoners’ requests for their last meal before execution.

what would you have? i think haagen-dasz is a great idea (banoffee flavour, thanks) + a giant bag of plain m&m’s… and my mom’s macaroni. i’m quite intrigued by the one onion, 2 cokes & pack of chewing gum request. wonder if the onion was cooked. also impressed by all the fresh fruit… mother nature’s bounty huh.
