"Here she is, your Komodo dragon...".

Where is the late Bert Parks when we need him?

Seriously? 5.9 feet? don't they know how to convert to feet and inches anymore?

The Freshman, as sung by the late, great himself.

I was going to guess the banquet was held to celebrate some kind of wildlife preservation program.

Which part of the salamander do you like best, Miss Stephanie?

Lavish banquet and salamander in the same sentence?

Just in case it doesn't taste like chicken, you can drown it in soy sauce....

Professor Wu will save it.

Later on, critically-endangered salamanders were allowed to eat the bodies of the senior security officials as part of the Great Circle of Life.

I have friends who call that foreplay.

Watched Jeremy Wade catch a Giant Salamander on 'River Monsters' and, as one does, pondered who in the name of all that's holy looked at the critter and decided it would be yummy when sauteed with a few shallots and some soy sauce.

Reminds me of "the Freshman" with Marlon, and
Matthew, and that famous quote

"...I ain't missed nothing!"

One of my favorite movies. and yes, the komodo dragon tasted like baked turkey....

Endangered Giant Salamander opened for Toad the Wet Sprocket.
