    A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As
    she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his
    stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest.
    After a moment or two, the vet
    shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles,
    has passed away."
    The distressed woman wailed,
    "Are you sure?"
    "Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied
    the vet..
    "How can you be so sure?" she
    protested. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or
    something."
    The vet rolled his eyes, turned
    around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later
    with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on
    in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his
    front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from
    top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and
    shook his head.
    The vet patted the dog on the
    head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he
    returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also
    delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat
    back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and
    strolled out of the room.
    The vet looked at the
    woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most
    definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."
    The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and
    produced a bill, which he handed to the woman..
    The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "150!" she
    cried, "150 just to tell me my duck is dead!"
    The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it,
    the bill would have been 20, but with the Lab Report and the
    Cat Scan, it's now 150."

    Just got a booklet for 25% discount at Greene King Pubs.
    Share price is about 5.10 at the moment. Benefits for 100+ shares

    held on 31 July. Dividend 33.2p = approx 6%
    Speculate share price about 5.50 and eat out every month (uo to 5 times a month allowed) to value of 30 = 360 annual, 25% 0ff = 90 or 16% share value.
    So dividend plus discount = 22% return (share prices can go down as well as up)






    P&O (carnival Group) and others offer shareholder perks

    PS if you cash out Quidco in a "British Pub Card" you get a 10% bonus, so about a total 33% bonus off.

    Bloomin loads of freezer reductions in T today. They were spread around all freezers with a section at the end with all sorts of stuff thrown in.

    It was the start of the day and I had nowhere to put frozen stuff at work so just got this peri peri chicken for tea.

    Only 1.65
    The annoying thing was that it was supposed to be best cooked from frozen but the time I got it home it had defrosted

    Used my 2 off coupon from the Fairy liquid to get the dishwasher tablets for 2

    There was also bags of midget gems for 14p and cat food soup stuff RTC. I didnt buy any of that. Oz won't eat normal cat food never mind soup. I can just see his face now looking up at me

    Might be worth checking out clearance items at Curry's.

    These are a steal at 5.97. I would love some for DD and DS but there's no stock around here. Hope someone gets lucky.

    There's also Joseph Joseph water bottles for 2.99
