Guga

Angry animal rights activists have vowed to end the traditional Hebridean guga hunt, an annual event where a team of 10 rugged men from Ness, on the Isle of Lewis, sail 40 miles to the northwest to the small, rocky, uninhabited island of Sula Sgeir to live for two weeks in stone huts and hunt gugas.

Don’t tell the animal rights fanatics, but there are no such things as gugas. These hunts are a pretext for a fortnight of drunkenness and high jinks away from the wife and brats. On the way home after the “hunt” the fellows stop at Tesco’s to buy packages of assorted frozen chicken parts that will be soaked in salt water then boiled in fish sauce to make the guga passed off to tourists and obtuse gastronomes as being a delicacy.

  1. How can you concern yourself with this trivia when the Japanese ate Ferdinand?

  2. Eating Ferdinand is more sensible than eating guga.

    Did I inadvertantly create the impression that I hold it against the Japanese that they ate Ferdinand? Because eating Ferdinand is something I admire them for.

    Their Anime, on the other hand, is repulsive and unforgivable.
