another day . . .

what it is: another day . . .
where i found it: earth

Another day on this Earth has brought me into contact with two new wonderful things: Twi gospel music and a buffalo scrotum cooler.

I'm lucky enough to be working with a Pentacostal Christian Ghanan who just loves Twi gospel music. I've heard a smattering of this stuff before, but today I got turned on the abrasive motivational sermons of Cecilia Marfo, who seems to be saying in Twi "worship Jesus, do good deeds, and believe in yourself or I will kick the shit out of you". Check out one of her charismatic sermons HERE.

A totally separate encounter led me to the existence of this unusual holiday gift item: a buffalo scrotum cooler. This find was the result of a discussion regarding whether humans had ever drank from buffalo scrotums as they often have from goat wineskins. Google search led to THIS SITE, which offers "natural exotic gifts" such as buffalo scrotum coolers (though no scrotal drinking vessels), rattlesnake skull spirit catchers, and sculptures made from animal penises. If you scroll to the bottom of the page you'll also see that for a limited time you get a free coon dick with every purchase!
