Milk Slug: Part 2

This is what happened to the Milk Slug after it drank all the cream.


That's one creamed-up slug!

Cat food review

Minty and Tommy have been reviewing cat food for this publication over the weekend.

Minty (pictured, left, with a mint on his nose) has been trying out Felix pouches for the first time. He recounts here his views on the Turkey flavoured pouch (translated from the original Mintese):

"A good gooey sloppiness when plopping on to my dish (Ed: Is it okay to say "plopping" on Blogger?). Smells almost as good when I burp it up half an hour after woofing (or should that be miaowing?) it down. Educational too: the packet helps me to learn the word for turkey in eight different languages. Did you know that the Finnish for turkey is 'kalkkunaa'. I do!"

Tommy was asleep and unavailable for comment as we went to press.

A shopping list

Whenever out shopping at one of the great satanic supermarkets, I look out for discarded shopping lists. I pick them up and take them home to mull over. "Who would write a list like this?" I ponder to myself over a nice cup of tea.

Shown on the left is a recent example, taken from the supermarket, which, if they were represented by a Subbuteo team in the colours of their disposable bags, would be number 13 (and not number 3, whom I try to avoid, on account of them eating up the world at a more alarming rate than their rivals).

Anyway, the list illustrated is one of the more interesting examples of the art. For those of you who have trouble reading it, the list contains the following:

Frozen (? - not sure about this one)
Loo/drain unblock

Milk and bread are two of the more common list items - no I Spy points for spotting them! Big points though for mussels, plunger, loo/drain unblock and (especially) obelisk! What on earth is Obelisk? And can you really buy one in the orange-bagged supermarket?

From the style of handwriting, I'm going to suggest the list writer was an older man - just a hunch. I wonder what he had for dinner that evening, and when was he planning on unblocking his loo? A mussel and apple sandwich, washed down with weak beer? Anyone?

Testing, testing, 1-2, 1-2.

Move along, nothing to see here!

Please note: I don't really like potato salad. It's too creamy, and the potatoes are often too hard, and they're not peeled properly - invariably there are crunchy black bits.

Down with that sort of thing!
