panacotta

I don’t think I need to tell you all that it’s exceedingly hot, as large parts of the country are ripped in a fiery heat wave that’s exacerbated by the awful drought. When it’s hot as it is now, my mind wanders far away from the savoury stuff that usually makes my mouth water. I want something cool. I want something fresh and light, with a bit of citrusy zing.

Right now, I’d stab me own mum for a Panacotta. Tropical fruit, with one of the most delicate desserts (essentially just a set cream) infused with lime, and served with a tangy granita? Yeah, can I have a bath of the stuff, please?

Geoffrey Tim

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    • Captain JJ the Goo

      That is what playing FPS with a controller feels like to pc gamers.

      • Hammersteyn

        Awesome?

        • Captain JJ the Goo

          😀

          *softly presses stick left*
          *gun swings to upper left hand corner*
          So yea, it’s pretty much how I play any FPS game with KB and Mouse too.

          • Hammersteyn

            LOL noob

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Stab-me-own-mum Tim. “Panacotta inna glass, no better anywhere or I’ll stab me own mum!”

    • CMOT dibbler is precisely what I had in mind when writing.

      • Dutch Matrix

        Hero of the Week for the Discworld reference.

  • Hammersteyn

    Halo has issues? What is this a remaster?

  • Lardus-For the Emperor!

    Call of Duty movie universe? Really? Like we need more generic action movies…

    • Hammersteyn

      Like the car crash that was NFS

      • Lardus-For the Emperor!

        That was at least semi-enjoyable. The only other car movies (now more heist/action that car) would be Fast&Furious…but how many action movies do we see every year? Too many.

      • Captain JJ the Goo

        Still better than Dark Knight Rises probably

        • Hammersteyn

          Tom Hardy did his part very well. combined I think Batman is in the movie for maybe 10 minutes on screen? As far as trilogies go. You can do a lot worse. Nolan knows what he’s doing

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Tom Hardy played the “new” Batman villain very well. 😉 That was not Bane.
            But I agree. There are worse trilogies.

          • Hammersteyn

            It wasn’t Bane, but it was a very well thought out version

    • Dutch Matrix

      But in this movie, you will have a bunch of 6 year olds regularly telling the viewers about the “Quality” of their moms…

    • Captain JJ the Goo

      Yes, but in this one they will have realistic fish.
      Plot twist.

  • Hammersteyn

    Mops procreate through pollination, but instead of bees they use cats

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Noooooo Matty! Come back!

  • Spathi

    “Right now, I’d stab me own mum for a Panacotta.”

    You know, usually the internet will try and twist some innocent statement into something sexual or funny or weird….

    I tried to do that with your statement Geoff, but even if I “misconstrued” it, it still wasn’t as bad as your original statement.

    Congrats Geoffrey, today you won the internet at their own game.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      How do you stab someone innocently? O_o

      • miaau

        You know, as a public service. Pick celebrity or politician you hate, insert name here, stabbed as a public service

      • Spathi

        Yeah no, I was thinking more along the line of stab, “steek”, having intercourse with his own mum.

        • Dutch Matrix

          Isn’t that level of humor reserved for the likes of me and myself and I alone?

        • Spathi

          In my defence, I went for a business lunch and had more than a few Jagermeister shots!

          • HvR

            and then ran into your mom?

        • Dutch Matrix

          AND HOW THE HELL STEEK JY JOU MA ONSKULDIG????

          • Hammersteyn

            She walks in on your room when you’re busy flogging the bishop and she trips?

          • Dutch Matrix

            Even if that happens, do you just go: Well. now that she’s stuck on my dick…

          • Hammersteyn

            No, you take meds, strongest meds

          • Dutch Matrix

            After this thread I need meds…

          • HvR

            Morning after pill?

          • Dutch Matrix

            Mind Bleach.

          • Spathi

            Ek grawe net al dieper, doen ek nie… (no pun intended!!)

          • Dutch Matrix

            Toemaar. Met jou klein grafie sal jy nie ver kom nie.

          • HvR

            What his mom said?

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Well Oscar shot someone innocently, so at this rate I think that’s completely possible in this country.
            Too soon?

          • Dutch Matrix

            ‘Your honor, I stuck ‘it’ into the hole in the door after paying my R50.00. I did not know it was me mum behind the door, your honor! On my mother’s honor!’

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            You thought she looked like your sister?

          • Dutch Matrix

            I just vomited into my mouth a bit…

        • AfricanTime

          its ok, its only illegal if she gets pregnant…?

      • HvR

        “Well as I been heading out to me mates the machete slipped and got caught in me sock and as I went past the Stainz Massif bus stop it fell into this guy’s arm ….. 7 times.”

  • Captain JJ the Goo

    I sense Geoff has a certain fondness of Italian food.

    • Hammersteyn

      He looks Italian….. half italian…… maybe a tenth italian….

      • Captain JJ the Goo

        Well he wrote Pannacotta as one word (people tend to get that one wrong)…so he’s got me convinced.

        • Hammersteyn

          You think he has connections? O_o

          • Dutch Matrix

            He is ItaliAsian!

          • Hammersteyn

            Yakuza and Mafia O_o

          • HvR

            o snap

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            He was A to Z, now he’s AYYYYYYYY to Z 😀

          • Hammersteyn

            hahaha

          • HvR

            Yes in the vast Gauteng Yakuza Mafioso Family Network

          • Captain JJ the Goo

            Doubt it.
            Though I’m sure he’ll threaten you, telling you that he does.
            I mean, I would do that.

          • HvR

            “Tonight you sleep with the fishes, until morning then it is time to make sushi”

  • Spy Master Tokashi

    So in the other news, Fallout 4 gets an awesome user average rating on Metacritic!

    Glad I didnt fall for the pre-order BS from Bethesda 😉
