Lone croc seen in local park while walking dog

Within cooee of popular children's playground.
Only metres from junior cricketers bowling in the nets.
Within a foot of free-running dogs.

Meanwhile, Bumper book snared at op-shop not so casual:

Jake Irwin?

Lord Sedgwick said...

I blame the sewers of NYC. (The embroiderers, spinners and weavers must also bear some responsibility.)

boynton said...

bwca: Jake the Leg.end.

(Looking at that caption now, should that read:
He seize Jake saw the croc?)

Lord S: Yes and the singers.

And bathing backpackers? Men in trees?

The thought of being death rolled by such a creature gives me the shivers. I've only just recovered from a tussle with a teva (truly).

...And with one mighty bound, Jake was free!

(COughs loudly) Ahem, I used to sing.

I found a nice little pair of yellow shoes on Maroondah Highway once, sitting right next to my carpark outside Officeworks as though a fairy had got into its car and left them there. Losing one shoe does look like carelessness, though.

boynton said...

Not a battle with a Brogue?

... but the crocodile caught the shadow.

Though two shoes could look like carlessness?

And one left shoe.

I guess a fair few lone crocs washed up along the beaches this summer.

Lunar Brogue said...

I did battle with a brogue, actually, during a short visit to Scotland many years ago. I was a child not used to the vowel play of my pagan kin.

boynton said...

fair is vowel and vowel is fair.

Lunar Brogue said...

During that scene, his favourite, a vowel loosened and he was forced to leave the theatre early.


boynton said...

I hope he didn't leave one of his diphthongs in the theatre.

genevieve said...

I have very little trouble with Irish accents. But Scots, sheesh.
Carlessness, heh. Very high standard of punning here, setting a new level for a new year I think.

Lord Sedgwick said...

... as the seminal line from Dave Lynch's '101 Dalmations' homage, 'Twin Pekes' goes, "The vowels aren't what they seem."

However I personally believe that the consonants killed Laura Palmer (nee Prestidigitator).

boynton said...

...who's who?


Lord Sedgwick said...

What? A hoot.
