WEDNESDAY 18th April
Back in 1994, Robert Horridge was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from university.
On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Robert approached it very carefully.
He got down on one knee, inspected the animal’s foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Robert worked the wood out with his knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot.
The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments.
Robert stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away.
Robert never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.
Seventeen years later, Robert was walking through the Aveland Zoo with his teenage daughter. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Robert and his daughter Margaret were standing.
The large bull elephant stared at Robert, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.
Remembering the encounter in 1994, Robert could not help wondering if this was the same elephant. He summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing, and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder.
The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs – and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.
Probably wasn’t the same elephant.

‘Headline of the Week’
If you ever type the name of the famous actor “Gary Oldman” into Google, I suggest you spell it correctly and certainly don’t forget the “R”.

FML / Fuck My Life.
A little section dedicated to those people who use the phrase FML / Fuck My Life on Facebook to describe stuff which really isn’t that important in the grand scheme of things.
Get a grip, people!
Yeah, fuck your terrible lives.
I was going to tell you about my coconut touching fetish but I’m feeling a little shy.
That Awkward Moment

They would probably like this.
(Yes, it’s a dick-tator.)

Breaking News: “Twister kills twelve people in Los Angeles.”
I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks the Americans aren’t playing it correctly.
Why? Why? Why?
Why do people pose with invisible scissors or try to be gangsta?
Move over scissors, there’s a new trend in town.
I wonder if this will catch on.
It’s the “smell my fishy fingers” pose.
Expect to see everyone doing the “smell my fishy fingers” pose this coming weekend.
Why? Why? Why?
Why do people take so many photos in the mirror?
There are, of course, some exceptions to the rule.
In fact, this should be encouraged.
Why? Why? Why?
Who do people do that duckface pout thing?
Where’s Elmer Fudd when you need him?
Oh right. Here he is.
I saw some ducks in the park looking at their reflection in the water.
I’m pretty sure they were practising their teenage slut face.
It is also ‘fashionable’ to have lots of tattoos.
I’ve never been fashionable so I’ll give it a swerve.
A lot of people – and it’s a surprisingly high amount of people – have “Shhh…” as a tattoo on their index finger.
Just so they can do this.
We’ll file that one under: “Fucking Pointless.”
I don’t care how much you like dick.
Whether it’s your own or someone else’s.

SHAMELESS NARCISSISM CORNER
Here’s a sample from last weekend to show you what went on in my clubbing world.
My new Sat Nav is rubbish.
It’s the Fleetwood Mac version.
It keeps telling me to go my own way.
But at least it’s better than the Talking Heads version.
As I always ended up going nowhere.
Any of you lot do that Zumba fitness thing?
What does your instructor look like?

Coolest sky dive ever.
That’s the way to do it.
The devil is always in the detail.
Read the small print and listen carefully.
Listen very carefully.

And the ex happens to be a smart arse.
(Even though I approve.)
That Awkward Moment (5)
…when you leave a little something on show.
