THIS SPECIAL

One of my favourite treats is to have an impertinently soft plump over-ripe mango to sink my teeth into - and not solely to avail of its fabled aphrodisiac and life-enhancing properties. You know the taste and texture is so so sweet and good. This Sunday evening, after a few seconds of initial pointless reticence, I finally succumb to the temptation of going wolfman and wilfully plunge my stubbled snout into that yielding mango flesh, allowing the juices of that most fucking beautiful of fruits to stream all the way down and over. Delicious.

We're definitely in agreement on this one.

I'll take mangoes any way they come. When dried, they can hold their own with virtually any snack candy on the market, while being infinitely more healthy. When the Tennoji temple grounds in Osaka have their annual flea market in the fall (kind of a rarity for the city), you can buy great ones on site from the vendors there.

That reminds me though, the word for 'mango' in Japanese is almost identical to the Japanese word closest to our 'cunt'- it's considered so vulgar that they don't even print the full word in adult magazines. So be sure to enunicate your mango order there as clearly as possible!

in a similar regard to double meanings, one should also be careful when phrasing an appreciation of the shakuhachi in japan. ;-)

bravo. i think that devouring a mango in all its messy glory is something everyone should experience. most people are much too prissy about eating...

there was a great commercial on american tv, back in the 90s.
two attractive enough people, in a pantry, with a brown bag of fruit ( i think it was peaches.)
they both start eating said fruit, with gleaming eyes and slurping noises, with great gusto, eyeing each other the while- as a sort of repartee.
ideally, mangos should be eaten while sitting in the sea, during summer.
( and here in australia, ive just hit the months to do this. may well die of delight!)
