    Because 'the man' had turned green?
    To see where the chicken had gone?

    The picture was taken at the top of some steps up to a holiday chalet on a steep slope.

    Sums up the competition title quite nicely. I never expect to see a lady with her bare arse up in the air!

    Kicking out from Chester races, I am in the van and stopped by a Police motorbike patrol directing traffic, to allow the drunken hoard to swarm across the inner ring road into town.

    One of the fat slags sisters waddles part way across the road, spots the copper with his back to her; stops, turns around, pulls her leggings and pants down to her knees and bends over with her arse on display to the coppers back.
    Pulls leggings back up and waddles back across the road to the amusement of her mates.

    I wish I had not seen that.

    It's not nicknamed the 'Wet West' for nothing. They get an average of 9M of rain a year.

    We were lucky that we had two bright sunny days there and some great diving. Driving back the day that you have dived is not recommended because of the height the road reaches (there's only one road in and out).

    As it's a pheasant, it's usually to seek martyrdom under the wheels of a passing vehicle.

    They are stupid birds - the job of a game keeper is to keep them alive long enough to shoot them.
    The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

    I`ve long held the view that Pheasants would be extinct if they were not bred for shooting.

    Terminally suicidally stupid creatures, that exceed even sheep for stupidity. The only thing they don't do is walk up to you, stick their head down the barrel and pull the trigger.

    I knew someone who lived next to a Pheasant hatchery (which got burned down), the death toll of drowned in water trough and crushed/smothered by other chicks on a daily basis was unbelievable.
    They shovelled them rather than picked them up.
    Survival of the fittest, had a really low bar.

    Similar in intelligence to woodpigeons - another that deserves the title of birdbrain. We had one pair that built a nest in a clematis and as soon as they sat in it, it fell through! Another one spent 20 minutes walking up and down the roof of our bird table trying to find a way in!
