Two things in The Times this morning had me hooting with laughter.

First was a tank of archer fish in Bristol - these fish hunt insects by spitting at them and can spit up to 10 feet, apparently. However, after a period in captivity the fish lose their accuracy and ability to spit, so the aquarium staff have suspended moving targets above the tank so the fish can practise their spitting.



And second, I never knew that Speedo-style mens' swimming trunks in Australia were called "budgie-smugglers" before today.



I shall never be able to look at a man in swimming trunks again and keep a straight face.  Grin

I used to have a bigger sig but Robert kept moaning about it so I have been reduced to this now. Sad

There's probbaly a joke in here somewhere about a Cockatoo but I wouldn't dream of lowering the tone.

Budgie down the front, right?

...or left depending on sir's preference...

I have a related joke:

A bloke asks his mate how he can attract the ladies when on the beach. His mate replies;
 'It's easy, just put a potato down your swimming trunks - the size will turn the girls' heads every time'
The bloke thanks his mate and goes off to buy a potato. Five hours later, the friend spots the bloke on the beach and wanders over to him to ask him how is luck went.
 'Terrible! Your advice was useless. If anything it turned them off.'
The friend looks down at the trunks of the bloke and replies;
 'You're supposed to put the potato down the FRONT of your swiming trunks.'

good grief, a Rubik's dodecahedron...

If you solve it, do the Many-Angled Ones appear?

We will need to see a photo of it completely scrambled, and then restored to its former state, of course...

You're right Pedro.

I can certainly let you have both photos, but I'm not guaranteeing in what order they were taken  Wink
