  4. Roger that, Lady Guinevere!

    Good thing you got this up today because I was just on my way to the bathroom and the temptation is always there, staring up from the floor, to the left to the toilet.

    Merci infiniement,

  7. Hilarious...

    I suppose the sequel might be something like (?) :

    Never pretend
    To be an ostrich

  10. I've heard it said that boys cannot resist putting something with a suction cup on their forehead. So far, I find that true.

  12. Love this!... A friend of mine's brother was once showing off in the milking parlour, he stuck one of the milking cups on his chin.... we had to go turn the machine off...lol!
    It reminded me of that, could be a farmers poem to young farmers; "Never pretend to be a cow's pap by sticking a suction cup to your chin"..
