I knew BP were into many things but I didn’t know eel smoking was one of them. This lovely lady was quietly smoking here eels in Monnickendam yesterday.
Eel smokers come in all shapes and sizes but the one below is quite something. I’m sure I saw something similar in an nuclear power station on the TV recently. The eel smoker shown below was at Monnickendam’s eel smoking festival yesterday. It was fair to say it was smokin’.
A man braves the fumes coming out of the eel smoker…
It is fish and eel smoking day in Monnickendam today.
Somebody from Heineken must surely spot one of my posts sooner or later?
We’ve spotted a number of these ‘nests’ made by the Oak Processionary Moths in nearby oak trees here in the Netherlands. We’ve never seen them ever before. That’s global warming for you Mr Trump!!!
But, before blaming Mr Trump too much, it looks like we British might be responsible for introducing this particular (and toxic) pest into Europe. More information here.
Do you think Heineken will send me a free bottle of beer for posting this one? I thought this image had a dash of a Rembrandt crowd scene about it….
