Excuse me, ma'am. I believe you dropped something.
I was bemoaning the fact that we didn't get to see a rhino close up, when this guy showed up and wouldn't move and we had to watch him for twenty minutes. This baby gorilla is adorable. I wanted to put him in my pocket and take him home and feed him jars of banana baby food. I'm not sure how his mother would feel about it. Look at George and Martha in the bathtub.When you are done poking fun at animals, you head over here and eat a few. Doesn't that sound cruel? There's something disturbing about eating meat at a zoo, but don't let that stop you. Truth be told, I got a fruit plate and a half order of onion rings. I'm not man enough to eat meat in the zoo. The Quiet man wasn't as easily daunted and ordered the ribs and I stole a small bite. Deelish. I didn't take a picture, not because I forgot but because we were busy fending off a gang of scavenging birds while we gobbled down our lunch. I tell you, it's a jungle out there.
This picture is stolen shamelessly from a travel review site. I doubt they'll mind. Just wanted you to know that I wasn't posting my cleavage with the ribs.
I had to get the recipe for the barbecue sauce so that I could make it for the Quiet Man for Father's Day. Apparently they field daily requests for their sauce, so here it is. Give it a try on chicken, pork, or even dunk your onion rings in it. See you next time with some treats from Hollywood Studios.
