Don't Eat With Your Mouth Full

Where can we live but days?

Tasting Notes 6
In case you're still fretting about the rabbit and its submerged companion from the prawn cracker packet in my previous post, my friend Chiho has explained that it's actually a reference to a traditional story, one version of which you can enjoy here:

Short version: the crafty rabbit (who is a goodie, despite the demonic red eyes) gets the better of a bullying badger.

And so, on to today's toothsome titbits...

"Some Scottish guy"
I've only lived in Bristol for 25 years, but I must say I get a bit annoyed on the city's behalf when George Lucas describes David Prowse's accent as "hilarious" (to say nothing of "Scottish"). Why shouldn't Darth have a Bristol accent, as much as any other?

What's even more annoying is that even when he was Green Cross Man Prowse was still overdubbed by an actor with something closer to Received Pronunciation.

Just to note - if ever I get to cast Alexander the Great he will have an Inverness accent, as is proper. Alfred the Great will be pure Somerset.
