Ms Raccoon still has her head firmly embedded in another case and it has become obvious that it won’t be ready for publication today – so here is a little light relief to keep you amused in your tea-break.
You may have heard that in February, Bristol police were out with cadaver dogs in Weston Park following the discovery of one lone left foot.
Come July, and another left foot turned up in the same area. It only took our wonderful constabulary a few days to announce that they didn’t belong to the same body…
August, and yet another foot turned up – all three feet within the same yard…(sorry, couldn’t resist it).
This time the police are being more cautious and have not revealed whether they are looking for a three legged cadaver, the remains of a dancer with two left feet, or three separate bodies.
However, in New York, another park has yielded a spare left foot.
Purporting to be a statue of presidential candidate Donald Trump, it looked more like Liberace to me – but then so does Trump.
Within hours, parks officials had removed the statue on the grounds that it was ‘unattended property’. Similar statues appeared in parks in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Cleveland and Seattle. Someone had gone to a lot of trouble…
Last word must go to New York Parks department which issued a statement.
NYC parks department on naked Trump statue: “NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small.”
