Things Are Not Always As They A Pear

Did anyone else ever wonder what happened to Chrisdye's long-time friend and professorial colleague who blogged occasionally at demaisonneuve.com? Well, I was at Edinburgh airport yesterday and happened upon him sitting near the parking lot; luckily I had my camera phone handy and snapped up the scene:



It appears to me that he is on his knees begging for his life from a particularly savage pomegranate. Any other interpretations?

(This really wasn't staged; I actually stepped out of the car at the airport and witnessed this, with not a person in sight to explain why there might be fruit sitting on a bench.)

(I reluctantly declare Ken the winner of the previous Battle of Wits, even though his entry was clearly a reggae reference rather than a funk reference. However, his was the only entry and, in any case, he's from Alberta -- so I don't think we can hold his lack of knowledge of black culture against him.)

Many days after the kidnapping, Mrs. Pear and Mr. Apple negotiated with the evil Coffee Cup to give back their son for the sum of 1 000 000$. Upon the rendez-vous point at the airport, Mrs. Pear faints at the sight of her son, beaten to the core...

Anti-immigrant sentiment extends to rejection of "foreign" fruit.
