S is for Springbok

September 11, 2013

I have about 57 ideas for blog posts following my recent trip to Namibia.  But, while I over-think and procrastinate on those, I wanted to at least share this little bit of knowledge now.

This is a springbok:

It’s not as cute as a steenbok:

But it’s still pretty damn adorable:

It is also…

A delicious shot

Amarula cream liqueur on top of peppermint schnapps. As a bonus, this drink is free so long as you are a foreigner and say “What’s a springbok shot?”  If you are a girl, it’s both free and bottomless*.

A delicious meal

A less than delicious rugby team

I still prefer the All Blacks or Wallabies (or other sports)

*Of course “it” refers to the shot in this case, but, you know, double entendre and all…
