Yesterday we had animals that weren't supposed to exist, but they did. Today we have the opposite. A ridiculous story claims that there's a thirty-six million year old penguin that was "nearly as tall as a man and sported shades of red and grey". You just don't get penguins that big. And no way would a penguin live for as long as that. A penguin wouldn't even live for a thousand years, let alone thirty-six million. 'sridiculous! "That's a bit weak," you say, "they obviously mean it lived thirty-six million years ago, but is now extinct (hiding, obviously, but we've dealt with that)." Well, no. Where would it get the shades from? There was no Poundland, no Boots the Chemist, no opticians, they didn't even have normal glasses then, let alone shades, people used to just get by on squinting. They could teach us a thing or two about squinting, they could, the skill died out within a few generations after the shades came in, now no-one can do any more than pathetic amateurish squinting like people who have been caught out without their shades, which is exactly what they are. Red and grey shades, that's got to be the eighties, hasn't it? Are they suggesting that Bananarama went back thirty-six million years in their time machine to distribute the shades to the penguins? Even if Bananarama did have a time machine, and there's no real consensus among the experts that they did, why would they do that with it? I find it hard to believe that the drugs in the eighties were that good - although it would explain a lot.
I had some soup for lunch yesterday. Someone else said they'd had soup and they were sleepy. That made me wonder if soup had made them sleepy. Then it made me wonder if had made me sleepy too. Well, not just that, probably. I must have been a bit tired, at least. Surely I wouldn't wonder if something had caused me to be sleepy if I wasn't at least a bit tired? Why, that would be absurd! Does soup make you sleepy? If it does, why don't people use it to help them sleep? Maybe they just don't know. I should do an experiment with soup at night to see. But I can't do it tonight, wine night would invalidate the results. I'll have to do it another time. But even so, I'm not a very large sample size. Why don't you join in the experiment? Soup at bedtime, see how you get on, and report back.
That would be souper! Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! A-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! A-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!
that's all from me for now
see you around
