    Rather than pollute the new news thread that is about drink related news I will put my "and in other news" story about a trampoline here.

    Only read if you are juvenile and like carry on movie innuendo. And if you smirk at the story it is worth watching the video at the end.

    Giant wasp nest found in Southampton pub

    They've not revealed the name, but I hope it is called the Beehive or something equally ironic.

    I like the poetic license of the journalist who has taken it upon himself to class them as KILLER WASPS!

    I just had a quick look down our Southampton list. Sadly none of them jumped out as having a funny edge. The journo did indeed nicely slip the word killer in, I initially missed it in my quick glance through the article.

    If you're going to quit your job, you may as well quit with style.

    Grabbing a couple of beers on the way out was a nice touch, too.
    And you can really taste the hops!

    Assuming that is all true, I may just have a new hero .

    Sent this on to the wife and she kindly countered with this lovely story.

    I remember reading a couple of years ago about a man that had an inch long sprout of a fir tree growing in his lung and the surgeon removed most of it before they figured out what it was.

    My Granny would accuse me of growing carrots in my ears when I was a kid. This accusation would be quickly followed by a wet cloth covered Granny finger rammed in my ears and rotated vigorously.It made your eyes water but has made me look on vegetarians in a dim light during my life, especially those who crunch on carrots.
