Spare Me the Details

It’s not because I have difficulty jamming my paws into those tiny holes. No, it’s because I don’t like wearing those ugly shoes they have at the alley. Seriously, who likes to walk around in ridiculous looking loafers with other dogs’ paw sweat in them?
Unless you’re a reformed germ freak, you have to pull out a bottle of Purell and spray your digits before you can lick those precious paw pads again.
So color me unaffected by the following story about a family, a chicken and a bowling pin.
An animal lover has found her chickens are game for anything after one laid an egg resembling a tenpin bowling pin.
Natalie Wiltshire said the bizarre creation was laid by one of her 20 chickens and reckons it is one of a kind.
‘I’ve done a bit of research and there’s nothing to suggest you should ever get eggs in this shape,’ said the 43-year-old.
The mother of three found it last week and was initially tempted to sell it on eBay.
‘I don’t know how much it would fetch but I remember a cornflake shaped like Jesus that sold for quite a lot of money so you never know,’ added the yoga teacher from Willoughby, Northamptonshire.
But the odd egg has proved such a hit with children Oliver, 13, Edward, ten, and six-year-old Benedict that she has been persuaded to hang on to it.
‘It really is quite an extraordinary shape. All I need now is another nine pins and a round one for a bowling ball and we have the complete set,’ she joked.
What’s next…an ostrich laying a lawn dart?
