    Alligator on gas snaps up Ig Nobel prize

    Peace: The governments of India and Pakistan, for having their diplomats surreptitiously ring each other's doorbells in the middle of the night, and then run away before anyone had a chance to answer the door.

    I think I pioneered this as a kid (possibly with others). :oops:

    We called it 'Knock down ginger'(65 years ago)
    Being cowards, we used to tie a long string to the knocker, pull it, and then ran away.
    Don't tell on me!

    Lol, a reminder of what happend soon after we bought this house. We were spending about 6 weeks a year living here and preparing it for our move.

    The second visit hubby said he was going to the bar to introduce himself.

    Several hours later the doorbell began an incessant ringing. Opening the door to reprimand the culprit in my best, newly (part) learned french i found hubby, stiff as a board leaning at about 20 degrees being held up with his head on the doorbell button.

    Two old reprobates were staggering at a fast shuffle across the road looking behind and giggling wildly as they escaped.

    One carried on past the fountain, the other tripped headlong into it.

    Bell still ringing i watched as the still running guy slowly stopped as he realised his oppo was not by his side.

    He looked back, turned a full 360, looked up and did the same as he checked his pal had not flown up to the roof tops, scanned the ground, scratched his head and shrugged before his pal sat up un the water coughing and sputtering.

    A scene worthy of any Peter Sellers movie. And i am not sure which of the two deserves the igNobel prize.

    I learned the next day, after hubby had sobered up that he befriended a pair of locals, farmers. Had a couple of drinks and got on great. They invited him back to sample their home made eau de vie.

    The two ****heads became good friends.

    I'm conducting an experiment to determine if bacon prevents
    Covid 19 infection. So far, my results are excellent.

    There has been a study where they tried this by cooking the bacon in an oven. But, alas, the results were only half baked...(sorry).

    I feel like I get the 'Creative' emoji a little to often, but at least it pumps up my like score.
