I experienced a similar thing when I visited Derby on a Wednesday morning. A bit like 28 days later.

Nice lingo BB.

:clap: Brilliant!

BTW which Zoo was it? I need to never go there.

And Lions, though ace on film as they rip up the wildlife are pretty shit in Zoos, they just sleep and mooch around a bit.

I haven't been to the zoo in ages. I remember the last time I was there they had a dim looking polar bear that was playing with a ball in it's pool.

It would push the ball under the water and let it to go, only for it to fly out the water up shoot up (the ball). It seemed to love this - it had a big simple polar bear grin on it's face. I think it's dead now though, sadly.

Perhaps you could post this review to the Zoo?

fcuking hell. It sounds terrifying!

I was at Henley Regatta this weekend and there weren't loads of fatties at all. In fact, I've rarely seen so many good looking women in one place before. There were some chavs too but they weren't so bad as one would expect.

I might do a review but to be honest, it would probably be shit if you weren't there.

Was driving through Longleat once when a lionness sat up, looked straight at us, then stood up.

Looking straight at us with an expression that made you think she wasn't about to offer us tea and fairy cakes, she then starting walking slowly towards the car, then trotting...



... and ran straight between us and car next to us chasing after something behind us.

Plenty enough lion action for me thanks. You become aware how flimsy modern car construction is when faced with 1/2 tonne (???) of big cat running towards you

ETA, sorry TBB, forgot to apply the necessary roffles - there's weren't enough - so much hilarity in your review. I can spare three:

Maybe Len's sister was putting on a foreign accent to try and impress you D. Or perhaps to make herself stand out and catch your eye.

That would have made two of us as I spent the weekend as Count Rosario Giuseppe Arturo Benedetti, from Greece.

That's Derby everyday!


Excellent review TBB, oddly enough that's roughly how I see the pointless swarms of humanity everyday!

Genuinely fab review TBB

Although it's left me tinged slightly with sadness. I'm looking forward to taking my daughter to a zoo one day.

We went to an open farm recently and when she saw the horses she was in awe. She'd only seen them on tv or in books before and you don't get a scale of the things.

I want to wait until she'll appreciate it properly tbh

We've done similar things and she just got bored after ten or fifteen minutes. Glass bottomed boat recently with jellyfish, crabs and all manner of fish and she just wanted to play with Macca Pacca.

Glass bottomed boat adds a level of remoteness - why should a child see it as different from watching TV?

Get them into rock pools and even seaweed becomes exciting
Ours used to love the monkeys on the car roof (sadly now stopped at longleat) because there was interaction
Or holding a snake
Or feeding deer (or for that matter ducks or anything else)
etc

IMHO

ETA nearly forgot again to say good review Blubes

She feeds the ducks all the time at the local park so does interact.

On Isle of Skye we went to a reptilarium and she loved the snakes and turtles and whatnot.

Just a whole day at the zoo would a bit of a waste for her at the moment.

Oh, and rock pools are a 4-5hr round trip from here.
