And the Winner is.......?

Awwww Cute little furry thing!!

And the winner could be????

Certainly not a British film/actor/actress/director.  Oh OK – I’ll stop whinging on about the British.

There has been times in the past where, let’s just say, that the Americans Oscar award ceremony is limited to.......hmmm, Americans.

Don’t get me wrong.  There’s nothing untoward about this EXCEPT when you publically go on about the Oscars being an award ceremony for films from AROUND the world, very few ‘foreign’ films/actor etc actually get noticed.

Am I grizzling here???  Possibly.

Moving on rapidly......

The second most cuddly pet for today.....well, ok then....maybe not.

Why would anyone want to name a cockroach after their loved ones??????

Mind you, love is fickle.  One day you’ve got loads of roaches and each one of them is named Larry.  The next, the romance is dead and the Larry’s is stamped on, and forever will be known as Flat Larry’s Band......all together now.....Zoooooooommm.

OMG – Did you see the quote....

"Flowers wilt. Chocolates melt. Roaches are forever," the zoo quipped.

Isn’t that a lovely sentiment to keep in mind when after a hard day’s work, you’ve come home and find the place is infested with Cockroaches, hmmmmm. Forever eh???

The Wildlife Conservation Society, which runs the Bronx Zoo, suggested a reason for the unusual gift: "Maybe it's in recognition of your one and only's virility, or strength in the face of high radiation."

And you would want to subject your loved one to unusually high doses of radiation.   

My god – there’ll be loads of Dr David Banners on the loose travelling through America, putting things right where once went wrong, and forever knowing that all of them are guilty of a crime they didn’t commit.  

But wait, go to any prison in America and they already say the same- They’re all inncocent!!

Oh well, no change there then!!

  1. How about we give an oscar to the cockroaches? They're probably better actors.
