Saturday Splutter

Well, you may not splutter, but only be faintly amused. They are mostly from Face Book. I am just having a little clear out. Can ever animal look quite as guilty as a dog?

    1. Gosia, she was very tough for sure. Do you get the pun of miner/minor?

    2. Andrew, No at my place we don't have but most people here don't like miners because they are well-paid here and and retired at 45.Now they are on strike because they want to earn much more money but unfortunately the coal from China and Australia is much cheaper than ours... And there are a lot of problems and the government decided to buy caol from your place... so they have blocked motorways..

    3. Very interesting Gosia. Given China buy a lot of coal from us, I don't think too much would come directly the ground in China. Australia rushes to did up its coal before the burning of it is not allowed.

      The excesses of your coal miners will do them no service in the long term. Someone like Thatcher will come along and bam, they are gone.

    4. Andrew, definitely they are going to close down some mines so they protest but there is no another possibility..

    1. Victor, even among quite ugly dog breeds, individuals have a cuteness about them.

  4. Dogs do shame sooooo much better than cats. Doesn't stop them repeating the crime though.
    Loved the underwear image. Big smiles.

    1. EC, I don't think I have seen a cat look ashamed. You know when the ears go down, it is not really shame.

  7. The shower curtain one brings back memories of Angel climbing my shower curtain to swing on it. I have a new one now and he doesn't go near it.
    I like the raisins one.

    1. River, I nearly added a caption to that one saying 'River, that goes for craisins too' but I quick check and I don't think you can make wine from craisins, or no-one has.

    2. I'm sure in the olden days someone must have made cranberry wine along with their elderberry, blackberry, huckleberry wines.

    3. I suppose any fruit really. It is the sugar that does the work.

  8. Yes the raisin one would be my pick of the bunch too ! I heard all about MT from my father each time we visited - Mum would say it was like milking time whenever she came on the tv. 'That so and so of a cow ' was what he called her. Eventhough they weren't involved with mining they were living close to some of the pits she 'destroyed.
    Lucky us left the UK well before the demise happened.

    1. Cathy, you should hear what they call her up in the north east, not quite as polite as so and so cow. Funny, I had forgotten that expression.

  10. Those dogs look guilty :)
    Signs are good. It's wonderful to see people's sense of humour come out with these type of things.

    1. Fen, we may well have been the victims of helpful dogs over the years, especially in the garden. Yes Toby, I am talking about you.
