From the movie poster for The Wild Women of Borneo, showing “the Fire Ordeal at Singapore”:
And here I thought that ordeal always started when you bit down on one of those little red peppers…
An’ I seed her first a-smokin’ of a whackin’ white cheroot,
An’ a-wastin’ Christian kisses on an ‘eathen idol’s foot:
Bloomin’ idol made o’mud —
Wot they called the Great Gawd Budd —
Plucky lot she cared for idols when I kissed ‘er where she stud!
Not much of that happening theses days in Singapore: they won’t even allow you to chew gum. They are, though, big on caning…but not exactly the variety that I would be interested in.
