Perched On The Dunny Pondering.

Every now and then in our life we've all been Perched On The Dunnny Pondering. For that reason here are a handfull of odds and ends to ponder over.

When dog food is new and improved, who does the taste test?.

If excuses are like bottoms and everyones got 'em, do they all pong?.

Why do banks call it instant credit, when it really means instant debit?.

I poured spot remover on my dog Spot, now he's disappeared!.

Why are fast reflexes a substitute for good manners?.

When you decamp from the dunny with your replies please don't forget to flush and wash your hands :-).

Until next time jolly pondering.

We have two dogs that are miniature hoovers. There is no way in the world they have ever tasted anything they eat. Which is to say the taste test is probably done by miniature hoovers. "If you reckon this stuff tastes better than the last flavour, wag your tail... yep; thought it would!"

Hi Windsmoke,
Love these, my favouite would have to be the one about the bank, so very true. Lol.

My dog eats anything so I doubt the 'new and improved taste" would wash with her if she did the shopping!

Ooooh, I never thought about the dog food issue. As Jayne says, they eat anything (and incredibly rapidly) so perhaps the 'taste testing panel' are just a pair of labradors!

Stupidity being something I know very well when I was much younger and in the army my buddies and I saw a commerical bragging about a certain dog food and how great its tastes. Since we were drinking it seemed a great idea to go and test that new dog food since it looked like the very same stuff we ate in the mess hall earlier.

Honestly what was really weird was that ater retirning from the store with several small containers of the dog food we opened it up and found that yes, it looked just like the beef stew that was served for dinner that night. As for actual taste, it was better.

Because of that we stayed out of the mess hall for several weeks and only returned when we were out of money.

I can't comment on dog food, but with other things like face creams, shampoos and conditioners etc, I've found that the "new and improved" isn't.

G' Day FRUIT & KATH: Maybe they have a robotic version of Lassie :-). G' Day MAGS: The big banks are to stingy to pass on the full interest rate cut to struggling families when they should be :-).

G' Day JAYNE: Not real fussy just a garbage guts :-).

G' Day BEACH: I've heard of pensioners eating dog & cat food because they can't afford anything else, but your little drunken incident takes the cake :-).

G' Day RIVER: I'll agree with that most definitely :-)

Good point about the dog food Windsmoke and i know quite a few people with very 'fast reflexes' if you get my meaning haha!

G' Day GRACE: It pays to have fast reflexes to avoid a clip under the ear for bad manners at the dinner table :-).
