Thank you for making my Mondays so amusing! While the giant dragon is quite dashing, I don't think I'd want him in my backyard either. And I hope the poor Smelly Cat isn't returned to the shelter again!

That poor, smelly kitty. He's so pretty! Someone needs to take the trouble to see what it is in his diet causing the problem.

I love sausage, but with a Cadbury Cream Egg?? They don't need to be messing with my favorite Easter treat!

Funny and interesting T as ever.
The ingenuity of the pub owner is notable , I mean the Wig and pen.

Kelly Steel said...

Funny stories. I enjoyed reading your post!

Poor kitty! I bet changing his food would fix that problem up... or at least make it better. :( Glad he got a home.

Naida said...

ha! Apparently dental surgery can give one foreign accent syndrome. I hope if hubby ever has to see the oral surgeon he returns with a Scottish accent, like Gerard Butlerss :)

Happy Monday!

Zombie runs are very popular here in the U.S. The 2.8 Hours Later game sounds like more fun. :-) I think I'd sit it out though. LOL

Some of those ailments in the first article, I believe, but others . . . Not so much. Too funny.

I am so glad Lenny found a new home!

I know a lot of people who would like to participate in a zombie game like the one described in the first article!

I am shaking my head at the be stinging. Yikes! The things people do...

I cannot believe the Zombies game! The Wig and the Pen (space space space)is a very funny story! Thanks for making me laugh, Tracy!

I wonder if that dragon is now for sale.

Alas I fear that my wife may have a similar reaction.

Heather said...

There is a brontosaurus not far from here that would look great in my yard, it's rather huge though.

I'm in for the Sausage cream egg. Sounds like a one time thing, worth trying.

as always, funny and interesting stories. cutting down on baked beans? this is so absurd, it has to be a joke!
that's indeed a bizarre warning.
