    Things that made you smile 6th Jan 14 at 1:31 PM
    We have a what's irritating you thread, and I think we need a thread for things that have made us smile, etc.

    Me - well, we have a puppy who is now 8 months. I let her out this morning and was hoping to keep the door open for her to come in. But it was too windy. I was stood by the door waiting for her, expecting to see her come down the steps.

    I then heard a tap at the door. She'd come down the steps, which I hadn't seen and tapped to be let in. She also taps to go out.

    I hope to God he hasn't had a face lift or something stupid like that.

    One amongst us already is





    ''There were multiple accounts of seeing Queen Elizabeth with ‘green, scaly claws,’ and one account of seeing her ‘black snakelike eyes with a yellow stripe down the middle,’ while others claim to have seen the monarch in her full-blown reptilian form.

    http://yournewswire.com/queen-elizabeth-shapeshifting-on-live-tv-goes-viral/

    However as the trending topic began attracting attention the tweets with the #ReptilianQueen hashtag and the accounts behind them began to disappear.

    The hashtag fell out of Twitter’s top 10 trending topics and now appears to have been airbrushed from history by the social media platform''.

    Blimey if that's my X ray, no wonder the office chair gives me backache.

    Smiling at the random fact that the guy who I knew only as the artist with Morph - (Vision On, Take Hart etc) - Tony Hart was once an Army officer commanding Ghurkas. Somehow that doesn't seem wrong - the patience, the calm, the communicating without words?

    The spoof DPRK Twitter Feed is sometimes good for a laugh:

    I enjoy it anyway, but that may be my warped sense of humour.

    A wolf that escaped from the (fairly) local wolf conservation trust this morning has been recaptured without any harm to either the wolf or any other animals, including humans.

    This is Torak, he travelled about 8 miles in his bid for freedom and was captured approximately 6 miles from where I live.



    He is a mix of North American and European wolves. Around 12 I think.

    Well done to all those involved, so glad he didn't have to be shot
