Forwarded

Brother Robin in France frequently forwards me "funnies" from his email inbox. You know the kind of thing. They do the rounds. You've probably received some yourself. Here's one he sent me the other day:-
New Species Discovered
They are referred to as homo slackass-erectus created by natural genetic downward evolution through constant spineless posturing, and spasmatic upper limb gestures, which new research has shown to cause shorter legs and an inability to ambulate other than in an awkward shuffling gait. The "drag-crotch" shape also seems to adversely affect brain function.

Verbal communication is generally crude and monosyllabic with indecipherable utterances such as "no-wa-ah-mean", "wicked man"and "innit" thrown in for good measure.

Expect no eye contact. Studies reveal that this emerging species attracts full government financial support. Unfortunately, most are highly fertile.

    1. Right click and select Copy Image. It should end up in your Downloads along with all the other rubbish. I then go to computer and drag them to my desktop as they are easier to find.

  4. I've not had any "funnies" in my email inbox in a long time. Most of the people who used to send them have either wisely given up on sending them to me, or they are now just posting this kind of thing on facebook (and you probably know what I think of facebook).

    I've always wanted a fox for a pet! Were it not for them to be so un-pet-like...

    1. I have also desired a fox as a pet though I am told that they are exceedingly smelly creatures. However, I also have my smelly moments.

  5. As you say these tend to do the round and I've seen the middle one before. However it doesn't stop them being worth seeing again: especially the middle one.

    1. The middle one is perhaps a visual parable of your life Graham. But are you the owl or the mouse?

  6. There certainly are some weird-looking creatures around these days...and I'm not referring to the owl or the fox.

    Not only is that "style of dress" (description, as are the clothes, used loosely) unattractive to say the least, it must feel horribly uncomfortable.
