Sitting in a Japanese karaoke bar, alone, an exhausted Dall Murphy had just finished off the entire Lion King Soundtrack. Hunched over and sweaty, the man was disappointed in himself, as he couldn’t continue on with his goal and complete the Lion King 2 Soundtrack as well.
Energy sapped, body cramping, hungry, forlorn and rapacious (yes, he was both in touch with his emotions and a known wordsmith) Dall was suddenly blinded by a ray of light bursting through the curtains of his booth, revealing some kind of apparition who spoke in a soft but gentle voice from what seemed another world.
But now you’re not sounding at all very strong,
Have some of my treat,
It’s made purely from meat,
The magical protein filled biltong.
Using the last of his energy, Dall reached forward and took a piece of the carefully preserved and cured meat, placing it into his strabilious mouth. Almost instantaneously Dall jumped out of his seat, bursting out The Lion King’s ‘He Lives in You’, much to the apparition’s joy.
After a few soothing ales, which coupled deliciously with the biltong, Dall realised the shining light from the apparition was nothing more than the hallway light, whilst the apparition itself was nothing more than a South African janitor who was beginning his midday shift.
With this new lease of life and energy flowing through his veins, right there and then, Dall made a promise to himself to return to his native Australia to create his own biltong, for all to enjoy and benefit from. That biltong is none other than Bareback Biltong.
