You may have heard the term, “Old Coot,” or “Crazy Old Coot.” How did coots get such a bad rep anyway? A coot is a common water bird that often migrates with ducks. It’s not tasty. Hunters don’t like them. It’s rather awkward in the water and has a beady red eye. It doesn’t fly much but when it does decide to get airborne it runs across the water making a lot of noise before finally taking off. So how this rather harmless bird became cross-threaded with an euphemism for a tottering, eccentric, old man is a mystery to Kongo….
The Del Mar Fair is one of Kongo’s favorite annual rites. The sunshine, the crowds of people, crazy hats, outlandish summer wear, amazing things to eat, and miles of booths filled with things for sale you didn’t know you needed until you saw them. Kongo loves all the weird looking people with microphones who stand on slightly elevated booths and teach you about amazing kitchen utensils, choppers, knives, miracle sweepers, car wax, salsa choppers, and salad shooters.
