'Believable', aren't they?!





I just want to share something that you may find amusing, and hopefully not offensive. Or, well...maybe it's one of those 'you just had to be there' type situations,..but I'll try to convey a picture....

My husband, my 14yr old son, and I were watching the USA Sevens rugby...New Zealand had won, and before the awards ceremony, they performed the Haka (their War Chant).

To my discreet delight, they had taken their shirts off prior to doing this...which in my thinking, seeing those muscles, made it so much more realistic in picturing them, well, as warriors...so, I said out loud, "Wow, they really are believable!"
....to my husband's shock, that I would say such a thing in front of himself and our son, he repeated what (he thought) I had said, "... they really are breed-able?!" :/ :DDDDDDD
Well, I'm sure you can imagine my reaction, to 'my men' reacting...etc etc....My, but it did make for a good laugh!!!!! :DDDDD

Breedable? Sounds like cattle, which is exactly what it must feel like when they trample all over you in a rugby match!

My wife loves that too! You do realise its (Haka) all about tearing out the intestines of their enemies etc etc...

I keep reminding my wife of that when she gets err...carried away. :-)

CT,
oh, too cruel a reminder, for us wifies that is! ....that does put a damper on things if one starts thinking about disembowelment! :p ;D

Scots,
watching that vid is almost as cruel!! ;)
