I remember when I was a kid, I was scared of Wilford brimley.
He always seemed to me as the Grandfather from hell.
Almost as if he ripped his philosophy of "eat your vegtables or I'll tear your freakin' arms off, you little snot" from the pages of Mr.T's official manual of child rearing.
"And so the Qalacki tribe known throughout the south pacific in 987 B.C. as the greatest fishermen in history died out due to the great "Ham Famine" while hunting for the elusive Ocean pig."
"But Professor, if they were such great fishermen then why did they die of "Ham Famine?"
"Because, aside from being a proud race they were also ignorant and secluded. Nobody else was around to tell them that pigs don't live in oceans."
