Curious things

I read a few stories on the BBC this week and have noted a new form of discipline for work. No more formal proceedings, just lock your errant members of staff in a toilet cubicle… Of course, only do this if you have another toilet that you can still use yourself or else it isn’t just them that might feel the consequences of it.

I also read the somewhat strange story of feet washing up on a beach in Canada. The whole thing is a mystery as no-one knows where these feet have come from. Two turned up on the beach last year and now another four have turned up – mostly right feet as well. I was particularly perplexed by this line though “Police say it is not yet clear if a crime had been committed. They said they had found no evidence that the feet had been severed.”

Erm… well I think we can say that they *were* severed, what with them not actually being attached to a leg or a body. I got my dictionary out and severed means “separate, divide, part, disunite”. So it has definitely been severed. I assume they mean that there are no signs of foul play. Anyway, if you see a lot of one footed people then perhaps you could let the Canadian police know.

I’m not really sure what to say about this next link, but if you’re into cheese then perhaps this is the culinary delight you have been waiting for. Or perhaps not…

I think the cheese is for real, as freaky as that is...
