    I like the last question about antartica....I saw that picture and I thought that it was an picture of trying to pull a really big lumbering team along. Her explanation of the picture is much better than my asumption.

    Anyone know who that was? I looked on google for antartica and 1904 and didn't find anything.

    Carol was talking about captain and explorer Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton.

    I looked up the original 'Chicken and Pig' story and it's actually a bit more cunning than the description she gave:

    A chicken and a pig are together when the chicken says, “Let’s start a restaurant!” The pig thinks it over and says “What would we call this restaurant?” The chicken says “Ham n’ Eggs!” The pig says, “No thanks. I’d be committed, but you’d only be involved!”

    I posted a blog entry on the topic of DVDs about Sir Ernest Shackleton, for those who might be interested...
