FROM THE LOVE LIFE OF GLOW WORMS TO BRAWLING MORRIS DANCERS.

 Please Note: Whilst I endeavour to keep Media Monday family friendly some of the articles featured do have links to articles of a more adult nature. TT


Llandudno council bosses have had street lights switched off over fears they were affecting glow worms love lives.

Not the only love lives to feature in the news ...

Having been found wandering near Newmarket, Suffolk, Monty (nicknamed Eric), a lost emu has been reunited with his girlfriend, Mathilda, who had been pining for him.

Having ordered a birthday cake complete with an edible figure of a 'blonde' girl a Scottish woman was surprised to get a cake with an edible figure of a brown haired girl holding a white cane after an auto-spell check changed the message to read 'blind' girl.

Hmm, who would have thought it?

How you fasten your bra could reveal more about you than you think.

Apparently I'm an influencer, a woman who likes to feel appreciated, supported and looks the part I'm presenting myself as. What about you? TT

And in the news from across the pond ...

Would you Adam and Eve it? Prince Charles plays Abel and Tom Cruise is Jesus as an American biblical museum buys unwanted waxworks of famous effigies and dresses them as characters from the Bible.

And finally, the headlines that had me chuckling the most (even if it is not as it might at first seem) ...

Morris dancers and blind footballers in mass brawl.

That last story had me laughing out loud!

Hi Tracy,

By clasping my bra at the back, I'm apparently a supporter: This “means you like to stick to tradition and tend to follow along with what you've always been taught”.

We can't quite manage a lost Emu around these parts, however we did muster up a rampant Rhea, which makes quite a habit of giving his owner the slip and escaping from his home in the back garden ...

Loved your little glow worm ditty :)

I love the story about the re-united emus, so sweet and the first story about the glow worms is pure brilliance! - Tasha

Oh gosh, that's hilarious about the glow worms. Can't be affecting their love lives!

And a blind girl on the cake. that's kind of amusing...

Suko said...

Oh, my! These stories really are laugh worthy! Not sure which is my favorite, although the emu love story is quite sweet. Have a wonderful week, Tracy.

The picture of Prince Charles as Abel is going to give me nightmares.

Oh gosh, spell check blonde to blind. Sounds like the epic cake failures site I used to check all the time

I've seen that glow worm before but forgot about (the poem not the story)...and apparently I'm a supporter. *ahem* :)

I had heard about the cake snafu. It made the radio news the other day. :-)

Let's see. According to the article about bras, I am the same as you. :-)

Had heard about the cake mix-up online. Hope the birthday girl didn't mind! The glow worm story is a little silly, but so glad the emu pair were reunited!

According to the bra quiz, I'm a supporter. Kind of funny since that's what a bra is supposed to do! lol
