Do they not realise that whipping malarky this is SERIOUS business?? After several thwacks to both arms, knuckles, thighs, buttocks, and eventually chin.. it IS serious and there is definitely NO ROOM for comments such as:
"I used to know somebody who used a bullwhip.., mind you, they had a 'torture' room too"
"Cracking it up the allotment... LOL"
"Is it to train Davy with?"
It's prurient comments like these that makes one wonder about the calibre of ones friends. I responded, and quite justly so, declaring that they wouldn't be so quick to mock had they felt my crack:
Whilst being busy breaking the sound barrier, and bits of myself off, frightening small children, dogs and grown men alike, I failed to notice the small colony of ants breaking for freedom behind me. It wasn't until I got home and enlarged the photograph that I noticed their pitiful pleas of terror - and it became quickly obvious this was due to the size and volume of my crack. It appears that I've made them quite deaf, so they had to communicate via text:
Poor wee buggers.
More interestingly however, my daughter and I found a dog poo that resembled a stick so much so that it rendered the "What's brown and sticky?" joke obsolete. Didn't bother with a pic.
