Animal Magic

We haven’t had a news round-up in a while.  It’s all about animals today, from The Telegraph website.  Visit the site for full details.

Giant Rabbit Sees Off Burglar

A petrified burglar fled a family home in the middle of the night - after coming face to face with their giant pet rabbit.

A family’s pet rabbit disturbed a burglar and made such a racket, he frightened the thief away.

The rabbit sleeps in a labrador cage in the house.  He was pretty shaken up and tried to go for a policeman who came to investigate.

I’ve never liked rabbits since I took Tory Boy on a pre-school trip to a local farm and we were warned not to let the children put their fingers through the bars because the rabbits often mistake them for carrots…

Owl Radiates Anxiety

This poor bird was hit by a car and became trapped in the grille for 24 hours. Fortunately, observant motorists (not the driver, obviously) spotted it and it was rescued, unharmed.

How Much Is That Doggie In The Window Annoying You?

This story sounds amusing but it’s really not: a woman suffering a form of tinnitus known as musical hallucination has heard the song, How Much Is That Doggie In The Window? in her head for three solid years.

And now you will too:

And Finally…

I came across this one on Facebook.  It’s a hamster who likes to play dead:

 

Joke 696

17 Feb

A man was driving along the highway, and saw a rabbit hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting the rabbit, but unfortunately the rabbit jumped in front of the car and was hit. The driver, being a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulled over to the side of the road and got out to see what had become of the rabbit. Much to his dismay, the rabbit was dead.

The driver felt so awful, he began to cry. A woman driving down the highway saw the man crying on the side of the road and pulled over. She stepped out of her car and asked the man what was wrong. “I feel terrible,” he explained. “I accidentally hit this rabbit and killed it.”

The woman told the man not to worry. She knew what to do. She went to her car trunk, and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the limp, dead rabbit, and sprayed the contents of the can on to the rabbit.

Miraculously, the rabbit came to life, jumped up, waved its paw at the two humans and hopped down the road. 50 meters away the rabbit stopped, turned around, waved at the two again, hopped down the road another 50 meters, turned, waved and hopped another 50 meters.

The man was astonished. He couldn’t figure out what substance could be in the woman’s spray can. He ran over to the woman and demanded, “What was in your spray can? What did you spray on that rabbit?”

The woman turned the can around so that the man could read the label.

It said: “‘Hair spray restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave.”
