We’re not sure what this says about Peter, but when it came time for him to carve this year’s Romance Annual, did he think of swans or other elegant creatures that mate for life? Not this man. Instead, his imagination turned to vultures, though he says he did toy with the idea of warthogs or Japanese fighting fish. His philosophy on romance: “Even if you look like a swamp monster and enjoy burying your head in offal, that doesn’t mean you can’t love and be loved.” If vultures can be romantic, then there is hope for all of us! The interior of this multi-compartment Romance Annual includes some delicacies that might appeal to the vulture palate – an eyeball and a testicle – which can also be found behind the birds. Inscribed on the lid are “Tiger 10” and “Pete 11”. During the carving of the piece, Tiger Woods won his 10th major championship, while Peter managed to take 11 shots on a hole during a game. Above the vultures’ feet is the number “1089”. Peter suggests you type this magic number into your search engine to find out just how magic it actually is.
