LOL of the day

I think we need a counterweight to the argh/annoying things thread.

So, what was your LOL moment today? Share with us!


My LOL moment: the mystery of the ambling cauldron:

My brother uses a big old cauldron to cook deer skulls (hunting trophies) and since it has a rather peculiar smell he keeps it in the backyard near the garage door, lying on its side, propped up halfways so that it can dry out properly.
This morning the cauldron was not where he had left it but it was turned over and stood on the other side of the yard. Dad reported at breakfast that he had heard scraping sounds in the night. When my brother went to tidy his kettle up he found a hedgehog under it.
Apparently the little chap got attracted by the meat smell and stepped into the cauldron upon which the cauldron turned over.

Did the hedgehog survive, or is this actually a funny story about death?

It's only 5:37am and the sun's not up. Not much chance for levity yet.

I'm assuming it simply non-lethally covered the hedgehog, and the scratching sound was the hedgehog trying to figure its way out.

Frequent use of sentences like this would make for a more interesting day.

I'd be thrilled to find a hedgehog in my vicinity - they're evidently not native to Northern Michigan.

Re: LOL of the day

I think I'd like to write a rap song called "Cover Your Hedgehog".

Now there's a new euphemism...




I wonder what it means.

Hide the sausage
Don't expose the log
Screen that private area
And cover your hedgehog

(that's just a rough, I'll get back to you)

They're not native to the Outer Hebrides (off the Scottish coast) either, and apparently they're none too welcome there.

Re: LOL of the day

I had a run-in with a hedgehog when I was in France with some friends earlier this month. I don't know if we have them in NJ or not, but I had never seen one before.

Basically I got so excited when I saw the hedgehog that I started jumping up and down trying to get it to turn into a ball. But I think that hedgehog was used to humans and just stared at me.
