    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    Hmm, are they still doing the 'bereavement ball'/ lobster habitat stuff over at Portland. Don't want my ashes to go to waste.

    If you are only going to eat stupid animals, I suggest cannibalism is the only route.

    That can be arranged.

    But less likely to leave a stink on you than meerkats, which are smelly anyway. Cuddling a skunk was absolutely magical.

    I guess it had had its scent glands removed. Au naturel skunk is exceedingly smelly, when I lived in USA you always knew if a car in a parking lot had run over a skunk because 1) it really stank 2) nobody was parked near it. Having parked once near a skunked car I got back in and relocated the car!! Skunk spray is utterly rank and does not wash off

    They only spray if unhappy - I'd be very unhappy if a car ran me over

    It's illegal to do that in the UK. (Remove the scent gland). We were assured that the skunk was 'whole' and it was quite happy to be held, trying to snuggle inside our jackets for extra warmth.
