Hyberion Writes- Usually in my role of helping to keep the site up and running- I do not participate much in any of the discussions on here, mostly because I feel I have nothing to contribute to the topics at hand. I have offered up comments here and there, but apart from the occasional piece of site news, I’ve never posted on here.
So with Cindi’s permission, I am making this unprecedented intrusion into the ongoing conversations to offer up something…well . ..a little different.
In this brief offering, completely off subject and in no way connected to anything else that is going on in this site, I bring to you something that is a moment of complete and honest humor involving only three participants:
1) Mark Cawridine- A well known nature photographer, best known in the states for the book “Last Chance to See” and a frequent activist for endangered species.
2) Stephen Fry – A well known actor and writer.
3) The Kakapo– A well known flightless parrot who is best known for being extremely endangered.
It is a moment of pure, natural comedy, which contains no smug irony, isn’t trying to sell anything, and has nothing more contrived than a bunch of people trying to take a picture of a bird. It also proves once again, that almost anything said with a British accent is funny. Please enjoy it in the spirit in which it is offered- sharing what Douglas Adams once called “The Sublime Joy of Silliness”. Thanks.
