Jungle Cruise Natives, October 1963

You never know what you're going to see when you take a boat down the jungle rivers of the world. We can hope to see rare animals, but there are people here too! Greenhorns like us wouldn't last two days, but they are used to this world. However, they are not necessarily happy to see outsiders. I can't really blame them.

Hey, what's that sound? Drums and chanting. I'm sure it's just our imaginations. No wait, look straight ahead! Fierce warriors in costumes festooned with bright feathers and war paint are letting us know that it might be best to stop at the next village.

Don't worry, fellas, I'm going to make like a tree and get outta here!

And I always thought it was "I'm gonna make like a tree and leaf". This must be why I've never risen above the rank of Private.

Thanks, Major.

I always thought it was, "You can't see the forest for the leaves!" ;-)

And the tree did get out of there. At least the tree trunk did.

More pics of my favorite attraction! Thanks, Major.

Oh, not to worry. They're just celebrating the kill of that lion that's been terrorizing their village. "Bad Simba, bad Simba!"

Unknown said...

Oh, Major, I for one caught your Biff Tannen reference. It's all for the good, you see.

Major Pepperidge said...

Nanook, you must have grown up in a strange land in which all of the sayings are slightly skewed.

TokyoMagic!, I can see the forest, it’s right there behind that hippo.

K. Martinez:
Log rolls down stairs
Alone or in pairs
Runs over the neighbor’s dog
What’s great for a snack
And fits on your back?
It’s log, log, LOG!

Patrick Devlin, I’m just glad they didn’t kill Kimba by accident.

Patrick Devlin, hooray! I didn’t think anyone would get it.

Major, I didn't get the Biff reference until it was pointed out, but I picked up on your Slinky song.....I think.

K. Martinez said...

Major, things fly over my head all the time, but I loved Biff's grandmother.

"BIFF!!! Why don't you come in and rub my toes some more!"

"Awe, Grandma!"

Well said Patrick Devlin... but I always preferred, "The natives appear to be celebrating the kill of that lion probably caught making a raid on their village. You know that lion is dead... they usually don't stand that way."

Always your pal,
Amazon Belle
