Just seen the escaped Essex Lion photo: If you look close enough you can see : Dorothy, the tin man and the scarecrow too.!(upload://3onLSYyKxR2qYGbWmC1mfALTe26.jpg)
Mark, imagine you originate from Basildon or Chingford, have upgraded to Clacton. You have just had a heavy day on the trading floor shoving sterling from one crooked bank to another then an even heavier session in the bar. You arrive home and there is a moggie in the garden. Your bleary eyes... Well the rest of the story is obvious!
Just to clarify: this is the photo that accompanied the BBC article on it.
Mark - I wholeheartedly agree - a cat dressed up as the Lion from the Wizard of Oz
That is a cat.
I missed that one Stuart, sounds like a cracker.
What about the poor sod who dressed up in army camouflage and pretended to be big foot in America. Got mown down by a 15 year old girl then finished off by a 17 year old.
Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
There's a place that I heard of
Once in a lullaby
Watch out for Dorothy Gale, a Tin Man, Scarecrow, dog called Toto, the Wicked Witch of the West, several Munchkins and the one in the picture above, the Cowardly Lion
Funnily enough, I just thought I had seen a tiger in the garden, but it was only the tabby cat from next door!
