News to Amuse - Issue 1
I've noticed that during my morning scour of the news, there are a few items that distinctly amuse me.
Shame not to share I thought, so I'm starting my 'News to Amuse' segment. Welcome to issue 1!
First onto the starting blocks, a story that probably shouldn't amuse at first sight: White Throated Needletail . However, on reading the article, something sprang to mind.... www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vuW6tQ0218 . It might be just me, as I do have a warped perspective of the world around me.
Richard Dawkins, a man of intellect and wisdom who has transformed modern understanding of evolution through his unique take on the 'Origin of Species' takes to the podium once more: www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFn-ixX9edg&t=4m46s . Watch it until the end, there's a surprise solo! Perhaps the trousers are what disturb me most.
Now a story that is quite unusual and reminds me of an old joke. Well, it must be an old joke, it's one of my father's! The driver and dog were both fine after the rather unusual road incident: www.telegraph.co.uk . When interviewed by reporters, the driver couldn't talk, as he was overcome with emulsion :P Come on, worth it just for the joke. No?
Lastly, a clip that speaks for itself whilst simultaneously answering one of life's many unanswered questions. And you think you've had a bad day? Check out this cargo loader and think again: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucvM8MzWNsA
