Hybrid… The Trane

Having relocated to China I had to endure that abuse of human rights, plane travel. I travelled to Gatwick by train which is by far the nicest way to travel. It was at that point I realised that a hybrid train and plane (a trane) would be a perfect way to cross continents.

What is interesting is the way in China they have managed to make train travel a bit more like plane travel, stations seem just a little bit like airports… maybe they will eventually create the plain (train travel with all the misery of air travel).

The Pander

As the tiger and the giant panda are both endangered I wondered if breeding them with each other might create an animal less prone to extinction. Of course the plan backfires if the creature only eats bamboo, is totally frigid but has a penis useful for chinese medicine…

lock up your bamboo, the pander is on the prowl...

Organic Supermarkets

Instead of just selling organic food I think supermarkets ought to go totally organic and cross their equipment with animals. A shopping trolley would behave so much better if it had angry bull genes (angry bulls are far friendlier than the average shopping trolley). These angry bull/trolleys can be stored in the eager to please Dachshund/trolley parks. The hydra litter bins can reproduce asexually to form more bins helping to keep the area tidy. The squirrel powered card readers can be fed nuts that have reached their sell by date…

Tescos could be so much more fun...

Fun with Crayons

I used wax crayons for the first time in decades when a toadstool turtle hybrid came round to pose for a portrait…

Although his shell is not so hard he is poisonous so will never end up in a soup

(It is said that a bad worker always blames his tools and I am no exception. I have decided that wax crayons are rubbish and probably are best left as a tool to keep children quiet for a few minutes…)

If you are a swimmer its best to take cheese with you to throw as a distraction

April’s Hybrid

It is a bit late due to never being in the same room as the scanner. In fact for a while I thought the Easter Chinny and the scanner might be one in the same thing (like superman, is it a panini toaster, is it a trouserpress, no its scanner rabbit/chick thing…)

Anyway even though Easter is a distant memory here is the Easter Bunny and Easter Chicks cute little bundle of joy.

This little cute thing will warm your heart as it pumps your veins with pure chocolate.

More Dog Fish Capers

Who would have thought it? After another morning at the Mathematical Association’s annual conference I found out that as well as their place in chaos theory (see The Dog Fish and Chaos Theory) apparantly some breeds of dogfish can swim in tessellating shoals…

The Dog Fish – And Chaos Theory

Is it a fish or is it a dog, is it a fishdog? No its a dogfish. Some crazy people think dogfish are a type of shark but I think it is a close cousin of a beagle…

It is said that if a dogfish wags his tail in the South China Sea it can cause good surfing in Newquay. This is a known as the Dogfish Effect and is a key concept in Chaos Theory.

Get the surfboards out, this is one happy fish...

When a porcupine mates with a crocodile the resulting animal looks like this…
