The World of Animus

The Fat Adventures of Baron Meowhausen — Second Course: A Taste of Tongue-Fu


The Fat Adventures of Baron Meowhausen —
The Second Course: A True Taste Of Tongue-Fu
(The Impossible-ish Quests Continue)

The Road to Enweightenment is fraught with doubt and temptation,
But a Dine Lord will never succumb to starvation!

Meowhausen returns to Earth to resume educating the feline folk with tales of his colourful quests on Animus. He recounts how he saved his friend from the clutches of a vengeful fiend, built his time machine (nearly at the price of his sanity) and completed his Tongue-Fu training, becoming a Grubmaster. The Earthlings strive to relearn the feline ways, but ‘Rattageddon’ is closer than they expect.

To complete his Tongue-Fu training and unlock the full spectrum of his Grubmasterly powers, Meowhausen must undergo the sacred and gruelling Fat-Again Rite of Passage. Having learned from Masters Sillypuss, Nyam and Katoichi (see book one), in his second book, Meowhausen sets off on a culinary adventure to taste the world. Many different cultures coexist on Animus and Meowhausen must hone his prowess in the cooking arts before making the crucial selection of his all-time favourite food.

He soon discovers that Poozestan (not to mention the rest of Animus) is ‘rather large’ and that travel on foot is lengthy, exhausting and generally, inefficient. Enterprising as ever, Meowhausen rises to life’s challenge, creating a machine, which allows him to sample the cuisines of the world in, quite literally, a timely manner.

Overly eager to chew fat with Destiny, Meowhausen winds up marooned in the past, trapped by his own amnesia. With only a fraction of his mind present, our hero gets up to some decidedly antiheroic antics, embracing a pirate’s life and rampaging across the seas. But, as his mind clears and the brainfreeze slowly melts away, Meowhausen reclaims his memories until he finds himself surrounded by belligerent scoundrels, whom he himself had so painstakingly hired.
