In honour of Under the Volcano

Post by gede »

'Tis the Day of the Dead, a fine day to drink and die as discovered by Geoffrey Firmin, ex-consul. Any fans here to raise a glass of mescal in honour of this superior novel (and pretty good film adaptation)?

Under The Volcano - Ending Remastered

Scene 1*

Enter Geoffrey, Yvonne, and Hugh.

(Table scene, late evening attire)

Geoffrey: "Stop sleeping with my wife!"
Yvonne: "Geoffrey, what has gotten into you!?"
Geoffrey: "Like a codfish racehorse...

(Geoffrey getting the fuck outta there scene..)

Hugh: "Let him go Yvonne, he'll drink himself undrunk..."
Yvonne: "No! Something will happen to him!"
Geoffrey (returns): "Drink myself undrunk!? (takes a hefty shot of premium tequila from another patron's table)
Hugh: "You heard what I said Geoffrey."
Geoffrey: "I don't think I did"
Geoffrey: "You little twerp."
Hugh: "Try me Geoffrey you piece of crap."

(Geoffrey punches Hugh with one swift blow. Hugh is looking up to Geoffrey)

Geoffrey: "Hugh, on the threshold of paradise...
puffing over her gills like a codfish,
veins like a racehorse...
prime as a goat, hot as a monkey,
salt as a wolfin pride.
Let them wallow here in their bliss
with my blessing."
Geoffrey: "Here take this shot. You need it..."

(Geoffrey, while still rambling... Meets another senorita, they get married and sail off into the sunset sippin Margaritas

-The End

In all due respect, Malcolm was a great writer. Rip.

What are you on about you piece of crap?

Enjoy the original story from the writer's own experiences.
