Glad you mentioned it. Now I won't be jumping to any conclusions.

You'll always be a Mountain Man to me. Incidentally, I was born of the sea foam. :wink:

This is a trick, no? You did not say: "I'm not British or a kiwi," nor "I'm not from Britain or New Zealand." It could be you are not British because you are a nationalised New Zealander, but you are not "from" New Zealand because you were born in Britain.

Or it could be you're from somewhere else.

zooby. I don't know what you are yet - I need a map. Croatia is somewhere in the middle, right? :redface:

OK, OK. I was neither born in the UK nor in New Zealand. I am not now, nor have I ever been, a citizen of the UK or New Zealand. I do not now, nor have I ever, lived in the UK or New Zealand.

I have also never tried to smuggle a coconut out of Haiti.

Something like that... It's east of Italy.

Okay, okay, you are a zoobie - descendants of the Mountain Men and mountain goats.

Berislav is a gondolier who got lost and rowed across the sea.

Goats? Are you high? I'm prolly some kind of post- simian, prehomonid kinda thing.

I've never seen goats while visiting the 'ol man of the mountains, but I have seen lots of chipmunks there. So zooby is a chipmunk/mountain man hybrid? Which would make him firm, yet oddly fuzzy.

What are these "Mountain Men" you guys are talking about? (I know what goats and chipmunks are.)

I'm not sure... Most people around here seem to be British. Funny, that.

Mountain men were trappers and explorers that roamed the Rocky Mountains from about 1810 to the early 1840s. These were primarily beaver trappers but included some who mainly wanted to explore the West.

The stereotypical mountain man was depicted as a loner dressed in animal pelts, sporting bushy facial hair and carrying a muzzle loader and buck knife. Some mountain men were gruff, while others were well-mannered, however, they were romanticized as honorable men with their own chivalrous code who would help their brethren, but were more at home in the wild...

Sounds like a zoobie to me...

Well, that's what I thought a Mountain Man was too. (A trapper, not a zoobie) Hypatia, though, says she goes and visits one. Does that involve time travel, I wonder?

You are still a young zooby. Plenty of time for that.

Are you from, in, or a citizen of Australia?
