A Mischief Of Magpies

If the Sun were the size of a beach ball then Jupiter would be the size of a golf ball and a Mischief of Magpies would be as small as a pea.

'Mon the tapirs !

Is it just me who is fed up with the dull and predictable news in Britain these days ? The Queen gets even older, the price of petrol goes up and Cherie Blair spends way too much money on a hairdo (not that you'd know to look at her). Snooze-fest.

We should take a tip from our friends in Costa Rica who had this amusing story about a government minister who was lost in the jungle. Turns out he pissed off a normally docile tapir and got bitten for his troubles.

Maybe we could send some of our politicians over to Costa Rica. Mind you, it might be cheaper to hire a couple of tapirs and let them loose in the House of Commons. Now that would be newsworthy !
