Bonus fart quote . . .
Btw, I was going to do a roll call of quotes from/about items and people mentioned in We Didn't Start the Fire but found that quotes about Red China and Johnnie Ray weren't that interesting, so back to the original format.
This information (and the pictures) is so interesting, but in a sickening, disgusting way, a la the proverbial train wreck. Have you seen this article?:
I hope your recovery is still going smoothly and that you will be ready to participate in one of those extreme endurance running events sometime soon.... ha! (I like to run, but marathons and those sort of extreme running things are on my "never bucket list"!)
Please take care, Otto.
In the past few weeks there have been a number of worrying packed lunches brought into school. Each of the bullet points below is a real example of complete home packed lunches provided to children in our school this year:
- McDonald’s Happy Meal (cold and purchased the previous evening)
- 2 bags of crisps and a crisp sandwich
- 4 yoghurts and a packet of Smarties
- 1 chocolate muffin, 1 chocolate roll and a bar of chocolate
Whilst extreme and funny to read on paper, I must make this clear THESE ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE examples of a balanced packed lunch.
A husband fed-up with his wife's obsession with shoes surprised her by installing two giant ruby slippers in their front garden. Scrap merchant Andy Walker, 50, ordered the 14ft tall Wizard of Oz-style shoes in response to wife Julie's "ridiculous obsession" with footwear. He said: "She is always asking for this pair and that pair and I just thought this might shut her up."
Mr Walker bought the shoes for £500 from a company which sells old props. The models were originally made for a promotion in posh store Harrods. Mr Walker is planning to add more unusual objects to his garden in Latchingdon, Essex.
