Why did the peacock cross the road?

To get himself a tasty Peahen!!

Sometimes in life you need to show off just a little. Letting people know what you’ve got and what it is that makes you someone to interact with or be around.

I know that, I do it quite a bit, much more regularly than many people. Way too much if you ask some, and not nearly enough if you ask others. Continue reading

Mike vs great white shark

This week I decided it was time to conquer one of nature’s true beasts.

And by that I don’t mean the Abominable snowman. Or the Tyrannosaurus Rex. I couldn’t find either of those at the butcher.

Who the f**k is Alice?

I stood over the sink washing up after devouring this week’s meat. I started to think of what I’ll write about this week, apart from the obvious that is the meat I had just eaten.
