Fawlty Towers

Yaxlich's housemate is watching Fawlty Towers on the TV with his Peruvian girlfriend. They are watching the episode with the German guest. Yaxlich has just overheard his housemate trying to explain the classic scene described below from
Basil then proceeds to mention the war at every opportunity, upsetting the German guests more and more as he rapidly descends into a fit of xenophobic ranting about everything and everyone that most Germans would rather forget.When the fed up German asks Basil to stop going on about the war, Basil kindly reminds him that they started it. “We did not start it,” protests the German. “Yes you did, you invaded Poland”, replies Basil!

The Peruvian didn't get it. Yaxlich wonders whether if Peru had an equivalent cult TV comedy whether or not he would get it either. As far as he knows from his limited experience with Peruvians, they don't go out much and their national food is guinea pigs. He can't imagine it would be on a par with Fawlty Towers.

Tish wonders if the Peruvian equivalent of Toad in the Hole is Cavy in the Cavity?

Yaxlich had to check what a cavy was before laughing. Actually he laughed before he found out but that was because he had seen a baby falling over on one of those home video clips shows.

He will suggest Cavy in the Cavity to the agoraphobic Peruvian next time he sees her. At the moment she is making funny noises in his housemates bedroom. He hopes she is OK. She sounds in pain.
