For some reason I waste 5 seconds of my life almost every day reading Fred Basset. It isn't that the comic is terrible- it just isn't funny. So imagine my surprise today when the theme was birding. Still not funny, but not where I would suspect to find a twitching reference. A tip- if you are twitching a rare duck and go to the trouble of hiding behind shoreline vegetation, apparently for hours based on the chairs and thermos, then leave the big tail-wagging, over-the-bush-peeking dog at home. My prediction for tomorrow's punchline: "Bollocks! We dipped on the Ferruginous Duck!!"
