Bad Cucumber and Pheasant Tards
When JP's parents came home with their banana, they woke his sister to let her have her first taste of the exotic delicacy. She wasn't impressed. "Bad cucumber" was her verdict.
JP is full of stories. He told us another one about his father, who was once invited to a Cheney-style pheasant tard hunt. Domesticated pheasants would be released in a copse shortly before the hunt, and then the so-called hunters would go after the bewildered cultivars with shotguns. JP's dad would have none of that. He responded to the invitation with a counter-invitation to come to his stately home at Näsby and do some shooting in the chicken coop.
