While I was distracted

I have been so distracted by the new baby in the family, my summer camp and the exciting Test Match that I didn't notice this intruder.
Thanks to erp for pointing him out! Normal service will be resumed after the cricket.

  1. It is fun, isn't it, M? Cyberspace has been all of a twitter about it today!

  2. Is that the squirrel or the cricket, D? I saw the great Twitterer Stephen Fry at The Oval today (on TV, not lucky enough to be there) but no squirrels!

  3. Oh, it was the the squirrel, M!!! You know me and sport - a subject with which, these days, I have only a passing acquaintance and cannot, therefore, be relied upon to make any sensible or informed comments. My late husband, R, played rugby for the England Schools team and for the Army as a young officer and was a bit of an ace cricketer. (On the day I agreed to marry him, he went out and clocked up 127 not out!) I even used to watch him playing cricket occasionally but am ashamed to admit that I would always have a book tucked in my bag - or knitting - which would usually be produced early on in the game. However, after he left the Army he worked for Surrey Cricket Club at the Oval and I do remember going to a several big matches (must have been in the days of Mike Brearley and David Gower), which were rather exciting. But probably no hope for me now as I have lost the plot entirely!

  6. Nan, the humo(u)r is in the incongruity between a picture of a beautiful serene coastline and an enormous totally out of perspective and silly looking squirrel.

    The genesis of the pop-up squirrel is a photo taken by a couple who set their camera for a timed shot, but when the camera went off, the squirrel had popped up right in front of it.

    It occured to me that m's header begged to be squirrelized, so I gave into my childish instinct and emailed it to her. If anybody would like to do the same, here's the Squirrelizer website.

  7. Ahahahaha! He sure does pop up in the most random places!

  8. It's a great joke - simple and absurd: the best kind of humour, as everyone gets it! Thanks for keeping the running gag, er, running ...;-)
