Friday Quote & Panda Blogging

April 5th, 2013at 07:20am Posted by Eli

This week’s quote is from David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas (the book, not the movie):

Teeth, sir, are the enameled grails of the quest in hand. In days gone by this Arcadian strand was a cannibals’ banqueting hall, yes, where the strong engorged themselves on the weak. The teeth, they spat out, as you or I would expel cherry stones. But these base molars, sir, shall be transmuted to gold & how? An artisan of Piccadilly who fashions denture sets for the nobility pays handsomely for human gnashers. Do you know the price a quarter pound will earn, sir? Nor shall I enlighten you, sir, for ’tis a professional secret!

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s wee baby pandas…

Aww.
