“Remarkable bird…lovely plumage…”

Ack! Sorry for the delay – crazy stuff! I am never going on holidays again – it’s too hard to catch up! If you (unlike me) are lucky enough to have some time to waste this week, here’s some things you could try your hand at…

1) Check out our latest Giant Squid here in Oz…awesomely cool and squishy. And sex-crazed…and cannibalistic…ah, go check Google News, you’ll understand. Anyways, this baby’s a whole lotta calamari for your curious eyes to feast on!

  3. Duly noted, Cato – thanks! I kind of thought it was funny-ish in context…if you made it all the way through did you take a look at the link at the end? That might make it make more sense.

    But I can accept that Monty Python should be super-sacred, for some people, so my apologies!

  4. […] A while ago I brought you a wonderful story about the German government paying people to put nice things in Wikipedia about them. Why oh why is it alwaws the Germans when Wikipedia’s in the news? (Of course, unless […]
