Something for the weekend, Sir?

Mimolette cheese with a glass of ice cold taste.

Mimolette cheese with a glass of ice cold Fino…top taste.

A childhood of single sex boarding schools, followed by a career in any sex you like photography, has cleanly excised any sexual prejudice that in a less testing environment might have flourished. Doing unto others as you would have them do unto you is not good advice if one is not sure of the “other’s” sexual proclivity. Mathew was obviously too busy writing epistles and gospels to get a chance to mix with Onan or to have friends in Sodom which left him out of the loop of doing much unto others.  If he had realised the extent of man’s flexibility he might have  modified his epithet into doing it unto yourself first to see how much it hurts. The internet would suggest that people are quite happy to put each  others’ body parts into their mouths, and are apparently insatiable for bodily fluids, but bring lasagne or hamburgers into the equation and the sensitivity of the communal palate takes on a delicacy that was hitherto absent. Horse or pussy. Donkey or dick. No contest.

I’ve inappropriately chosen a picture of cheese for this post, but appropriate behaviour is not in my remit.

    I guess cheese goes well in any ocassion, so it is never inappropriate!!:))

  10. I love your photos – food so naturally displayed – like people are in the process of eating it. I’m a bit OCD so tend not to do that but will need to work on it 🙂
