Bit unfair, these are far worse (& a better representation of the UK cabinet!)

But hens are useful. They lay eggs.

We have a brush turkey living in our garden. There's been torrential rain since yesterday morning and the turkey had been spied walking around, looking rather wet and dejected. I've just spotted it again; it's taking shelter under our outdoor table.

Brush turkeys are pretty big, but rather skinny (and incredibly stupid). I can't imagine there's any good eating on them ...

They may be good for soup. Hops and turkeys, carp and beer, came into England in the same year.

Found on my twitter feed...

I spotted a cat on someone's porch, miaowing to be let in. Without thinking, I walked up to the door, rang the bell, nodded to the cat and left. It was only as I rounded the corner I realised what I'd done. I heard the owner shouting F**K ME SARAH, THE CAT JUST RANG THE DOORBELL!
