1454 : On Being Bitten By A Lion In A Wet Bed


Dandelions - wonderful things. The name comes from the French dent-de-lion meaning lion's tooth which was a reference to the seated leaves. You can eat both the leaves and the flowers seemingly, although I plan to avoid it after learning than the English folk name for them is piss-a-bed!

I have just bought one of those GTech battery powered mowers which is quite good on the lawn but makes a dreadful mess when vacuuming the carpet

Yes, I think I will pass on the lions. Probably with my luck, the neighbor has come over and sprayed them with killer chemical. Both do not sound very desirable.

I'm going to have to usurp "piss-a-bed."
