YEAH! MONDAY MEDIA IS BACK.

..... After what seems like a summer filled with house guests, hospital visits and computer issues I'm pleased to announce that Media Monday is back. TT

Drivers were left in a bit of a pickle (pun intended) after an overturned lorry spilt thousands of pickled onions (and not just any old pickled onions either, these were silver-skinned pickled onions) over a carriageway in North Yorkshire. FULL ARTICLE

It's no yolk. These hi-visibility bibs for chickens may not solve the riddle of why the chicken crossed the road but might mean that the bird is easier to spot doing so. PICTURE AND FULL ARTICLE *

Containing Zorflex which is used in chemical warfare suits a Loughborough based company has produced the Shreddie pants - perfect if  you’re the type of person who would kick someone out of bed for breaking wind. FULL ARTICLE

And talking of breaking wind .....

6,400 tins of beans with sausages were stolen after thieves cut a large hole in the side of an articulated lorry as the driver lay sleeping in the cab. FULL ARTICLE

Scientists claim a mysterious humming noise which is said to pulsate through the house keeping the residents of Hythe in Hampshire awake at night could be down to fish making loveFULL ARTICLE 

It might not sound the most exciting of cocktails but a new martini is to be created using moisture extracted from the walls of the Cabinet War Rooms, the bunker-like complex buried 10 feet below Whitehall which sheltered Churchill during the blitz. FULL ARTICLE *

Must read article ..... 

Anyone tempted to enlist the services of a tattoo artist is being urged by a professional translation service to 'think before they ink' in order to avoid mistakes like this woman who using an internet translation tool to render 'I love David' into Hebrew later found out that she has inadvertently had the phrase 'Babylon is the world's leading dictionary and translation software' inked on her back.

Its great to see Monday media back. Thanks for the laughs, I loved the chickens and the think before they ink - link - thanks for sharing them.

Yay - I'm glad to see Media Monday again!

I was just wondering about the vinegar aspect of the onion spill when I saw the reference to the "eye-watering carnage" in the article. What a waste!

Yay for Monday Media!

Ick about the pickled onions! That sounds terrible! And very wise advice about thinking before inking.

These are so funny! Yes, definitely be careful with those tattoos, especially when not using your native language. LOL

Suko said...

Yay is right! But these stories can't be true, can they? I suppose piles and piles of pickled onions, cackling, bib-wearing chickens, amorous fish, and tattoos with unintended translations are all part of the human comedy.

I'm glad things have calmed down for you!

Fun stories as always. The think before you ink is sad though. I mean if you think... there is less of a story to tell. LOL

Naida said...

You crack me up! Glad Monday Media is back!

Blond Duck said...

Sorry, my comment got cut off.

I have never tried pickled onions but I feel that I must do so ever reading that story. We have an artisan pickle shop around here (I swear that is true) and I will see if they make such a thing.

Yea for Monday Media! Always get a chuckle out of these, so glad you brought it back. Now I'm curious about who is going to put all those bibs on the chickens!

I would never have imagine fish would be so noisy. Now what are they going to do about it that won't result in frustrated fish?
