The idle musings of a former military man, former computer geek, medically retired pastor and now full-time writer. Contents guaranteed to offend the politically correct and anal-retentive from time to time. My approach to life is that it should be taken with a large helping of laughter, and sufficient firepower to keep it tamed!

Another good one from Stephan Pastis. This one warms the cockles of my African heart. Click the image to be taken to a larger version at the "Pearls Before Swine" Web page.
I beg to differ with Zebra. "Yum" is, indeed, a very African response!
Since you emphasize your African roots, and migrated to the U.S.later in life,
you also call yourself an “African American.”?
I've been known to do that, yes . . . to which my black friends reply, "No way, man! You'se a honky!"
So, what does zebra taste like?
When I was in middle school in the 90’s in a major city, I had one class mate who was white but recently immigrated from South Africa wondering why he did not qualify as African American, and one who was black from I forget which Caribbean island who would get very offended if he was called African American because he did not trace his roots from Africa. That was when I learned it was just a modern euphemism for older (non-pejorative) terms like ‘black’. John Wright points out that needing to specify ‘political’ correctness means we are talking about something other than correctness, i.e. falsehood.
