I misread that twice, as 'grass'.

Why restrict it to them? Shouldn't we all forbid ourselves this delicacy?

The original premise that I became sexually aroused by Clarkson almost flashing his knob is false. I do work in McDonald's though

Went past the huge depiction of this on the side of the Tate & Lyle building at West Silvertown on my way to school by bus during the 80’s.

Now, unfortunately, flattened by developers.

Nor can bunnies.
They do eat their own poo though.
Happily, being vegetarian, that's quite a sweet habit as compared with dogs that eat sh*t. That's far less pleasant to witness...

It's not possible to sneeze and keep your eyes open at the same time.

You can lead a horse to water
but a pencil must be lead.

Cleopatra lived closer to the building of the first Pizza Hut than the building of pyramids.


The Great Pyramid was built around 2560 BC, while Cleopatra lived around 30 BC. The first Pizza Hut opened in 1958, which is about 500 years closer.

The name for Lego comes from the inventor taking it home and watching his son play with it.

He said to him "dad, i can't get the bricks to lego of each other"

The word 'bungalow' isn't derived from Indian as previously believed but came about because some builders ran out of bricks while constructing a house so someone said "we'll bung a low roof on".

If you are right-handed, it is very nearly impossible to do a good enough job of wiping your bum using your left hand. With paper, obviously..
I can't speak completely for vice versa but I suspect it would be as similarly difficult...
