We all need a friend like that. But only one!

You might know the answer to this.
With yesterday's disaster of a shopping delivery we received a box of Camilia, Teething 1-30 months, painful gums, restlessness, irritability, diarrhea....

The pack says used to relieve pain...diarrhea due to teething?

You can get the runs from teething? How does that work?

Does it work for sore gums or do you have to have the runs as well as sore gums?

You just reminded me of teaching my stepson
Yum-yum, pig's bum
Wrap it up in chewing gum
And give it to your mum

At the time, his English was minimal so all he really recognised was the rhyming part.

Yes, they look lovely. Just don't go near them in shorts and jandals.

Then you pick 'em off with the .22 and look up recipes on the internet. I've never eaten one, but imagine they're something like rabbit.

This should be good for a laugh or three.

Facebook apologises for flagging Plymouth Hoe as offensive term
Plymouth Hoe is one of the most well-known sites in the UK’s seafaring history, the spot where Sir Francis Drake reputedly finished a game of bowls before heading out to fight the Spanish Armada. But Facebook has found itself in hot water after challenging some posts from local people who innocently mentioned the Hoe, mistakenly thinking they were using a misogynist term.
How on earth do they manage on gardening forums? All the hoes, other tools, twine, and canes would make it sound more like a BDSM site.

What other places might be problematic? Not that place in Newfoundland as it's too obvious.
