“Slimy… yet satisfying.”

From: The Lion King

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Pumbaa and Simba

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from The Lion King. This is actually the third time I’m getting a quote from this classic Disney film but that just goes to show you how memorable this film has become.

The quote comes from the middle of the Hakuna Matata number. After Simba leaves the Pridelands, he stumbles across Timon, a meerkat voiced by Nathan Lane and Pumbaa, a warthog voiced by Ernie Sabella. The duo shows the young lion that their sole source of food and protein comes from bugs. This initially disgusts Simba but, after trying one, he does agree to how the grubs fill his empty stomach.

Geek wisdom: There may be things that may seem distasteful initially, But, once you get used to it, you may actually grow to love it. So go ahead and try something new. You may never know it but you may actually find something you really like in something you initially thought to be disgusting.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
