Bonus Post: Do not click on this link if you are in a public place

Posted by Tania Kindersley.

The blog is going to be very late today since I am in a perfect work storm, but I thought I would give you a special Friday lunch break bonus in the meantime.

This is going the rounds on Twitter. It is, without a doubt, the funniest thing I have ever seen on the internet. When I say do not click if you are in a public place, it is because there is a very real danger of crying actual tears of actual laughter. Also: rocking and shouting.

I shrieked so much that the Pigeon thought something terrible and/or thrilling was going on, and hurled herself up onto my chair and started licking my face all over, half in reassurance, half in desire to join in the fun. This made me laugh even more, and frenzy ensued.

I don’t quite know why I find it so funny, but I do. Anyway, I needed the endorphins, and the Pidge had fun too:

Link again, just in case the first one does not work:


  1. I love hearing about how excited the Pigeon gets. It makes me really happy - she must be doing so much better now. Happy Friday!

  2. Siobhan - She really has got her groove back; it's quite amazing to me. Happy Friday to you too.

  3. Oh my lord, I am in fact rocking and keening with hysterical laughter. Thank you for that! The effect is cumulative-- I can read the first 4 with a straight face, around 6 I start laughing loudly, by 10 I am howling. The Pigeon looks lovely in her photos today.

  4. Luckily only my five year old is with me as tears of laughter flood down my face! ( I can't get the BBC iplayer here, but would like to say how much I enjoyed Sarah's column about the journalist, the politician and the cup of tea!)

  5. Ellie - think you are right about cumulative thing. Still trying to work out why they are QUITE so funny.

    Trifle Rushed - five year old must be AMAZED.

  6. Brilliant....just the laugh I needed today....thank you Tania :)

  7. Hilarious!...funny things to read and the gorgeous Pigeon to look at, just what I needed today. Enjoy your weekend.

  8. The seminary students in the next apartment probably think I'm insane...a crone laughing hysterically on her own. Phooey on them and thanks to you for the cathartic moment. Laughter really is amazingly remedial. Have a great weekend, dear Tania.

  9. oh dear I have just done a small wee!

  10. Thank you so much for posting this. I cannot remember when i last laughed so much. Out loud. Very early in the morning. In fact, i think i am going to have to read it again. Dear Pigeon IS looking extremely well, and I just knew she had a sense of humour.


Your comments give me great delight, so please do leave one.
