FROM A DANCING SHETLAND PONY TO A BREAKDANCING JESUS.

Having become famous after 'moonwalking on a tv commercial Socks, the Shetland pony has found himself embroiled in a paternity battle which may lead to a DNA test after his new-found fame has landed him in hot water when he decided to take advantage of his notoriety by seducing a mare he was not meant to be with.

One less-than-careful owner from East Grinstead, East Sussex is selling his very-used car which boasts 160,000 miles on the clock, a broken air-conditioning system and CD-changer. And if honesty really is the best policy, he could be quids-in as bids have been flooding in for the battered X-reg car which as the eBay advert states ......  ‘If you are looking for an immaculate, well-maintained example of a Mercedes e320 CDI… you have come to the wrong place. If, however, you are low on self-esteem, with a strapped budget, but shooting for the stars, welcome to my auction. MORE

Created to mark a visit to Scotland The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have been given a starring role in the Beano, one of Britain's most popular children's comics. MORE

The catflap is too funny

I had to laugh at the whole Beano Comics thing. Around here Beano is a product taken before eating to prevent flatulence.

EC Stilson said...

I LOVE that shed! How awesome is that?!

And also, Felix must be quite a mouser ;)

Gina R said...

That's too cute about the catflap for Felix!

I kind of like the breakdancing Jesus; very interesting.

And I totally want a replica tardis. Awesome!

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

I think the installed flaps for Felix was my fave story. Also that shed rocks. :)

Cherie Reich said...

Okay, I really love that catflap and wish mine had a cat on it like theirs. :)

Suko said...

I'm not sure which story's my favorite this week! I do like the cat door and the boat-shaped den.

(For some reason, your blog "went missing" from my blog roll for a few days. It's good to have you back on it for updates.)

That shed would be so much fun to play pirate in!

Some really neat sheds there. I vote for the Tardis replica.

Sorry about the deletion - typo alert!

Naida said...

Breakdancing Jesus?! That's a new one.
And OMG about the Camden Lock hotel being made to mimic the film Mama. I saw that in theaters and was traumatized. I think I'd faint if I saw it recreated in real life...lol. ewww!

Love the cat flap!

I kind of like the breakdancing Jesus mural... it's different!

NRIGirl said...

We recently sold our 10 year old minivan with 210k mileage on it - literally within 30 minutes from posting the add on Craigslist! We must have received close to a hundred inquries for days after!

I am sure the ebay auction for the person mentioned was a huge success.

Betty Manousos said...

as always, really neat installments!

love that cat flap!

Jinky said...
