"That you may ruminate"

…On Bison!

Posted by Steve on October 4, 2008

Years ago, I used to live near a Ted’s Montana Grill, the restaurant chain owned by America’s wealthiest bedlamite, Ted Turner. They served burgers. What kind of burgers? Bison! They had a little card on the table, that was something like this: “What meat has more protein than beef and less cholesterol than chicken? Bison! What meat is the only 100% made-in-America meat? Bison! What meat is plentiful and nourishing? Bison! What meat do we serve here? Bison!” Basically, it was a matter of shouting, “Bison! Bison! Bison!” Which is, of course, the name of the Plains Bison, Bison bison bison, as evidenced by this photo:

Well, at the National Zoo in DC, they have gorillas. What sort of gorillas? Gorilla gorilla gorilla! Yep, the Western Lowland Gorilla has the same sort of Spam Sketch name as the American Bison (Plains). And I think those names are funny.

Ditto the Spam Sketch…
