"There are 75 percent fewer Cocks than in the first census in 1881" (Daily Mini-Quiz). Must...resist...bad...joke...phew! that was close.
I've already seen a lot of tits this year - I think my first were a pair of blue tits toward the end of January but I'm starting to see a lot more now the mornings are lighter and I can get dressed with my curtains open (Paper Monitor).

And you learn something new every day - apparently tits are also called bumbarrels. I kid you not.
"Phnarr, phnarr" (Paper Monitor)? Come now, surely it's spelt "fnar"? Does anyone have a dictionary of sufficient whimsy to be able to clarify? Mind you, I've always preferred to spell "phaph" that way against the advice of my own sage tome, and primarily for my own amusement.

I'm very pleased to see the "someone follows their sat nav and nearly drives off a cliff" story. We've not had one of these stories for far too long. My opinion of the British standard of driving was almost getting a bit higher there for a minute, but is now restored.

Farm pig apes dog agility tricks. All-noun headline of the day?

Why are you renaming the Shire counties the Sheer counties? Today on BBC Radio 4's You and Yours we heard all about Chesheer, and here where I live, the local radio station is Herefordsheer and Worcestersheer. BBC local TV is just as bad. It's driving me nuts. Please bring back Cheshuh, Herefordshuh and Worcestershuh and all the rest.

Gatz (Tuesday's letters), the Thai Spidey story ends with the line: "Mr Somchai normally uses the costume to liven up fire drills in schools." Answer your question?
Kat, Oxford (Tuesday's letters) - I have adopted two children and if their faces were accidentally not blurred then their safety would be at risk. What do you suggest - I keep them indoors? This is all a bit too Big Brother a la George Orwell's 1984 for me.

For what it's worth, I think Google street view is much more fun than privacy.
