I was going to write something else, but the WV has rather distracted me. It's PIGGYPOO

Christopher said...

Oh, brilliant. Couldn't read this aloud to J. (in the shower) without breaking down into helpless laughter, so she never got to hear beyond line 8. I'll try again later...

Rog said...

Dave: And mine is PIGSMIGHTFLY! What are the chances of that?

Christopher: Reading...from computer...in bathroom...mmm....

Z said...

Brilliant. I read it out to the Sage, but it took him a while for him to get the joke, as he kept mishearing me.

Rosie said...

It did make me laugh aloud. I have also tried it with a Glasgow accent, an Arisaig accent, and Catalan accent (which makes it sound like a coughing fit).

I guess that's just pork-quality journalism.

Nota Bene said...

Daniel Burdon should wash his ears out. I didn't know pigs could swim...just fly

Macy said...

I'm just surprised the original story was only printed on page 11... what was the headline that day???

Zig said...

what's 29970 piggies between friends?

Betty said...

Perhaps the farmer speaks like The Terminator. He'll be back ...

Rog said...

Z: Sagacious!

Rosie: Arisaig-Catalin sound a v. unlikely combination of cultures.

Martin: Berdoom Tish! With that kind of talk you are most welcome round here.

Nota: I tried Googling Daniel Burdon and am still no wiser I'm afraid. Is he a beast?

Macy: Good point. Jordan getting married?

Zig: One hell of a party.

Betty: I knew you would too!!!!

But what actually did happen was a cow getting floated down the river, through the barrage at Rockhampton and 15km out to North Keppel Island, where it died the next day.

It was a big flood, but not 30,000 pig big.

Rog said...

Hi Phil. Keppel Island is between Wilson and Betty Islands isn't it?
(Geriatric reference - sorry)

phil said...

Hi Rog

Eevrything you need to know about the Keppel Group is here. Plus wikipedia of course. cheers

Rog said...

cheers Phil. I was talking about these

phil said...

Ah. Previously my education had not...well, it just hadn't.

I now consider myself enlightened. I'm also incredibly grateful that you didn't export them down here to Godzone.

Ummm...you didn't, did you?
