“Driving along I spot, of all things,a zebra.I ask the driver to slow down, as I need to confirm that I am not hallucinating.In fact, I am not.It is a small horse painted with black & white stripes by its owner for some ceremony.The image reminds me of a phrase I often use in India:
‘What you see is not always what you think.”
Naked Men & Flamingoes,The Whinging Pome To The Point
P.O.M.E: Prisoner of Mother England.A person of British (technically English) origin who will regularly moan about living in another country because nowhere is like his homeland (including his homeland) anymore.
POMPOMMIE :Words spelled badly by the Australians,to label the British.
WHINEING : The British word for grumbling.
He’s bold,unapologetic & opinionated.He’s not one to be ripped off.Often politically incorrect,yet more observant than the most seasoned traveller,he’s here to whinge.And no one does it better than The Whinging Pome.
