FROM NO SWEARING AT THE SHEEP TO A SEXUALLY INTENSE DEAD DUCK

WARNING: Whilst I endeavour to keep Media Monday family friendly I feel it only right to point out that some of the newspapers featured do have links to articles of a more adult nature. TT

Ewe have to be joking, in the news from down under ...

A farmer in the Australian outback has been slammed by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) who lodged a complaint against him after an employee was apparently filmed by an 'undercover operative' using profanities in front of the animals.

More commonly known for his appearances in the retro Nantendo game, a motorist was surprised to see a cloud formation that looked suspiciously like Sonic the Hedgehog whilst in his Ford Transit van near Bristol.

After last week and Bessie the Wallsend cow today its the turn of ....

Desmond Drake, a 'sexually intense dead duck' according to the headlines, for whom villagers in a Somerset village have decided not only to hold a wake but also lower the church flag for the occasion.

I'm rarely an "eye-roller", but that's exactly what PETA's accusations have me doing!! Puleeze!

Let's hope Duck Heaven is as satisfying to Desmond Drake as Somerset was for him (minus the fox, of course). ;)

Those poor sheep. LOL They need to move that Somerset village that Desmond Drake was living in. They know how to treat their animals.

If you can't swear in front of your sheep, who can you swear at? Sometimes people are beyond stupid. Although I do like the idea of holding a wake for a duck. I'm pretty sure that there will be drinking involved. :)

I will not curse in front of my cats :)

All joking aside, I live the punny intros you come up with for each weird and wild story. ^-^

Hi Tracy,

Only in Somerset would you fly a flag at halfmast and hold a service of remembrance for a duck! I don't know whether to hold my head high with pride, about living in the same county, or whether to hang my head in shame and ridicule!

I kind of got side-tracked with your story about the sheep swearing, as included in the text is a link to an altogether more macabre story, about the surgeon who amputated and elderly patient's leg with a rusty saw, beacuse DIY chain, B&Q, was closed!

Great selection as always, thanks for sharing :)

Yvonne.

Tracy, you have once again found the funniest stories to share! I can't think of anything clever to say, so I'll just thank you for this hilarious post.

That cloud really does look like Sonic the hedgehog. I love the dead duck story so sad he was eaten by a fox.
