20 February 2011 - Emergency Instructions for Terrible Jobs
I apologise for two virtually content-free posts this evening, but this picture is too amazing not to share (click for big):
13 July 2010 - Bear Gryllz (Grillz?)
I’ve had a few ranty, politicalish sorts of blog posts lately and thought it might be time for something a bit lighter. On Saturday night, I sat around watching the antics of a pug named Bear Gryllz. Could be Bear Grillz actually, I’m not sure. He looks a lot like the pug above. It seems […]
