Cthulhu Breakfast Club: Jumping the Sharktopus


Welcome to the January 2016 meeting of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club!

 

In this first meeting of the year we discuss "YSDC Super Screen 2" (Electric Boogaloo), can there ever be enough Cthulhu? Do limited print runs restrict access for future fans? - our favourite horror authors, and what we're looking forward to over the next few months.

 

- and how exactly do you pronounce bourbon?

 

Come, join us for 90 minutes (or so) of dining, drinking and discourse! As ever, we retain our laser-like focus on matters of the day....

There's also a chance to win a CBC Dice Tower (as there should be each month during 2016)!

The street in New Orleans is definitely pronounced "BURR-bun," but of course other uses of the word may be pronounced differently. :-)

Thanks for the clarification! (Though a street of biscuits does sound rather enticing. :-))

I came across this BBC article on the link between bourbon biscuits and bourbon whiskey (tenuous).

Which is, of course, the French House of Bourbon.  It appears that Bourbon Street wasn't named after the biscuit or the drink, but in honour of that ruling family.
