Thread Name: BS: Smear a Llama Here
Subject: RE: BS: Smear a Llama Here
In Peru many years ago, just outside the capital, there was a huge Llama dearlership where people came from all over to buy, sell and trade Llamas. Well, the years passed and, as with everywhere, Peru became more industrualised. The Llama trade was not what it was and the dealership had to close. The town council wondered what to do with this huge wasted area and as, in the 1950's, all things from the USA were in vogue it was convereted to a shopping mall and food court.

One of the food vendors was an exceptionaly good Chinese restuarant whos speciality was stir fried lamb with bamboo shoots. It became so popular that all the young people ate there and, due to this, the whole mall became the scene for the up and coming rock and roll singers. Eventualy people from all over the world began to arrive. The mall itself paled into insignificance and it's name was lost to the records. Many famous people visited and to make sure that they were always refering to the right mall one particular artist came up with a name so accurate that everyone knew what he was talking about.

Well, I believe the mall and food court have long since gone now but the name lingers on in song to this day. It is...

the Lima Llama rama with the lamb bamboo

I need to lie down now...
