Tarzan, or maybe Marzipan.


Sean has returned from his African safari. No doubt he will have many stories to tell, many of them will be entirely fictitious, like the picture of him above being chased by a young Masai warrior.

He has already tried to coax me out for beer once this evening. Fortunately i have a will of steel. A will of steel is necessary for the extreme mountain adventures i will experience over the next week or two. My stories, unlike Sean's, will be entirely real, and not in the least bit exaggerated. Avalanches, falling seracs, surviving on crevasse-ridden glaciers -- and all of it true.

Stay tuned ...

I am a photoshop expert and that picture looks real to me. Why not give your friend Sean a break and go for a beer with him

Yes, the picture is authentic. The true story behind the picture is that Sean had seen a small caterpillar on the ground and was frozen on the spot with fear. Luckily there was a brave Masai warrior nearby who dashed over and speared the harmless insect.

And now you know why Sean lives on the sixth floor, far away from all the creepy-crawlies on the ground.

I am an African wildlife expert. That caterpillar was from the deadly species, caterplillardeadlyitus. It appears your friend Sean was very wise to have had the foresight to hire a trained assassin to accompanyy him on his outrageously madcap adventures.

It is no longer safe to go for a beer with Sean. While in Africa he was infected with a 6' long tapeworm.
So now he has to eat for two, and that means a pizza and a curry every time he goes for a beer.
That's one damn thirsty tapeworm he's got - it seems to like the same beer as him too. And it likes strip-bars!!
