Now, I am *curious* to know: why would it be surprising to get a passionate kiss from a woodcarver? If he were -say- a lumberjack or a butcher it would have been more expected? LOL

(of course I "get" the gist of the review, but for conversation's sake and just to be contrary :P)

Perhaps woodcarvers in Greece are a passionate bunch, but here they are mostly pallid little fellows who hide in their workshops and pore over tool catalogs.

Butchers, now, they're another story. Maybe too much passion in that cohort--and we all know what Monty Python had to say about lumberjacks. ;-)
