Banksy’s Girl with Balloon.

Sotheby’s employees pose with the Banksy artwork Love is in the Bin. Following its sale at auction for £860,000 (just over £1m with add-ons), Banksy’s Girl with Balloon unexpectedly began to pass through a shredder at the bottom of the frame, resulting in this new work of art which is now estimated to be worth twice the selling price because of its world-wide notoriety. You have to hand it to Banksy!

Bear with a sore head.

Idon’t think bears drink alcohol although judging by the look of this bear I may be mistaken. He really looks like he has had a heavy night and needs a quick pick me up. You can just imagine him thinking to himself, “Never again!” It does bring a whole new outlook to the phrase; “A Bear With A Sore Head.” I think I would suggest a quick Maccies breakfast as that is the fastest cure I know for a hangover…

Ruth and Geoff Strickland pictured with the bear.

Aten foot tall carved, wooden statue of a bear has stood at the roadside guarding the entrance to Britain’s smallest town, Llanwrtyd Wells, for fifteen years and all has been well. That is until a stupid woman car-driver crashed her car and blamed the bear. What did the bear do? Did it run amok in the road causing the woman to swerve to avoid it? Was it growling menacingly at her as she drove past? No, it just stood there in the same place as it has done for fifteen years. The terrified driver said the bear scared her as she drove past and so now the Highways Agency say it will have to be torn down and relocated.

Iwas just looking at The Bear’s Blog when I suddenly had a thought; What If I was a bear? If I was a bear, I would get to hibernate. I could do nothing but sleep for six months… I could deal with that. Before I hibernate, I’m supposed to eat myself stupid… I could deal with that, too. If I was a bear, everyone would know I meant business. I could swat anyone who bothered me. If the kids got out of line, I could swat them too… I could deal with that.

Queen Ananasty and Servant Dave first met Chimpton on a railway platform, to be precise, it was on Lime Street station. Servant Dave was there to meet Queen Ananasty, who was coming home from one of her overseas Royal visits. It was a warm summer day and the station was crowded with people on their way to the seaside. Trains were whistling, taxis hooting, bells ringing, porters rushing about shouting at one another, and altogether there was so much noise that servant Dave, when he first saw the Chimpton, had to stop and take a second look.
