Olga and I were trying to reach Pizza Hut’s delivery line yesterday, but it was constantly busy so we had to make another choice for dinner. We went through a pile of menus, flyers, and coupons in our “order some food” box and stumbled upon a few coupons from Burger King. Burger King has been represented in Cyprus for some time now, but neither Olga nor I tried it for some reason. So we decided to order it.
Consider the joke told by Richard Stallman that I read in this article:
Once I was eating in Legal Sea Food and ordered arctic char. When it arrived, I looked for a signature, saw none, and complained to my friends, “This is an unsigned char. I wanted a signed char!” I would have complained to the waiter if I had thought he’d get the joke.
Until today, the word “char” had only one meaning to me. It was a computer term, which is used as a declaration of a character or string variable in some programming languages. Such as C, for example.
It turns out, that there is another meaning. Here is a quote from the dictionary for you:
also charr (n. pl. char or chars also charr or charrs)
Any of several fishes of the genus Salvelinus, especially the arctic char, related to the trout and salmon.
I was photographing this duck in the park today and made a lot of similar frames. I didn’t want to throw them all out, so I decided to play with all of them in Gimp. I like ‘Pekin Duck’ variation best of all.
