As soon as I saw the video I knew immediately, and incontrovertibly, that this HAD to be a Sri Lankan elephant.

I, as you know, know my elephants and I also know Sri Lankan traits. This is your classic Sri Lankan elephant. It is partly because we give them a lot of mellons.

“Scottish Mussel” (2015) Movie On “Amazon”: Cute Enough Story, BUT Kicker Is Learning About Scottish Pearls!

Despite my Scottish heritage and all the time I have spent in Scotland I had never heard of Scottish pearls! I know that for a fact, because it isn’t something I would have forgotten.

This movie, ‘Scottish Mussel‘ appeared in my Amazon Prime Video recommendation list. It looked vaguely promising. So, the other night when we decided we should try a comedy to get a break from murder-mysteries we gave it a spin.

And then we learnt about Scottish pearls and, boy, am I glad. I felt that there was a gaping hole in my knowledge.

Movie is not something to write home about. Some magnificent shots of the eternal beauty of bonny Scotland and there are some funny bits. But, we watched it to the end because the Scottish pearl angle was so intriguing.

So, don’t watch it as a comedy. Instead treat it as an amusing documentary of Scottish pearls.

A “Jack Daniel’s” Themed “Father’s Day” Cake That Only A Sri Lankan Would Design.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and savor.



Yes, ONLY available in Sri Lanka
from the irrepressible ‘Kapruka.com’.



Anybody who has followed this blog for any length of time will know that Sri Lanka’sKapruka‘ makes some incredible, world-beating cakes. I rave about them often enough.

But, THIS Father’s Day cake really does take the cake!

When I saw it, I cracked up LAUGHING. Only in Sri Lanka. Only by a Sri Lankan.

There is so many things wrong with this cake and so many different levels.

And to exacerbate things, ‘drinking’ is still has social and cultural stigmas and women, in Sri Lanka, are not permitted to buy alcoholic drinks at bars.

So, we now have a cake sporting 4 bottles of “Jack Daniel’s”.

First and foremost, what exactly are YOU trying to tell your Dad. That he is a raving dipsomaniac?

Let’s assume that he is, i.e., he is a raving dipsomaniac. What is he going to think? Do you think he is going to appreciate this cake. I doubt it. It will aggravate him, no end, on two fronts. He doesn’t want the bloody cake, he wants at least one bottle of Jack Daniel’s. So, that will be his first gripe. I don’t want this damn cake, you should have spent the money buying me a good bottle. Then, the second gripe. This really does look like somebody is taking the mickey out of you. Implying that you are a raving dipsomaniac.

Well, I do NOT have to worry. Nobody sends me cakes or makes me any. That I do not eat cake might be a small factor.

But, I am not sure how I will react if I got this cake.

Now, if it also came with 4 bottles of Jack Daniel’s, all could be forgiven. By the time you finished two of the bottles you wouldn’t even remember the cake.

Happy Father’s Day — especially IF you are a raving dipsomaniac. I can relate. Cheers.

The New ‘Bentley Flying Spur’ Is Quite Spectacular, But As Far As I Am Concerned It Is a German VW!

by Anura Guruge



It breaks my heart, these once GLORIOUS British companies now under German or Indian ownership. Bentley part of VW and my BELOVED Jaguars part of Indian Tata Motors.

This new ‘Flying Spur’, like all Bentleys, is near magical in its presence and gorgeousness — BUT it is no longer ICONICALLY British. Aaahhh! Why or why? Why did we let this happen.

Yes, I salivated over it, not that I would ever pay that kind of money for a car. But, an old Bentley, when it was still a British Bentley, might still be on the cards at some point. SMILE.

Anywho …

Just wanted to share with you and also express my distress as to what has happened to Dear Bentley.

Donald Trump’s Math Isn’t That Good — BUT, I Guess We Already Knew That.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Genuine Trump tweet from June 10, 2019. Go check.


Took me a second to realize what he was TRYING to say.

I first thought it was some arcane New York thing.

24/7/365.

Then I had to laugh.

Oh, Dear, Dear, Dear.

YOU know why this is wrong … right? Please tell me YOU KNOW.

This is scary.

Last week it was the Moon being a part of Mars. Today, this. I do worry.

Who Is To Say That Donald Trump’s Mars-Centric Model Of The Inner Solar System Is Wrong?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Genuine Trump tweet from June 7, 2019. Go check.

Until Nicolaus Copernicus expounded his views humankind, led by the popes, truly believed that everything up in the sky revolved around the Earth. Copernicus said otherwise. But, that was nearly 600-years ago.

Copernicus was nowhere close to famous or powerful as Donald Trump. He also did NOT Tweet.

So, what is to say that Donald Trump is wrong?

It is possible that we did have this all wrong. Our Moon does not orbit the Earth. Instead, it orbits Mars. Possible.

I will give the Donald the benefit of the doubt.

Making Elephants Worship The Buddha Is So Very Juvenile — And So Very Sri Lankan!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Saw it on my Facebook timeline today. It makes me very angry and sad.


Click to access my earlier post.


This upsets me, greatly. Elephants do NOT worship the Buddha, any other gods or anybody for that matter. Elephants do NOT worship.

Do NOT foist religion on elephants or any other animal.

Dogs do not go to heaven, and elephants have NO notion of religion.

Yes, Sri Lankan Buddhists think this is so special and noble. They are too shallow to appreciate that it makes them look … Well, how can I say it politely.

Elephants deserve better.

To be FAIR, Sri Lankan elephants are, by and large, well treated. They are taught to kneel. So, they will kneel.

This is so juvenile. I wish they would grow up.
