furry beasties

i just can't make stuff like this up. to celebrate bread mold, scientists seek coffee mold.

"chemists in britain are looking for photos of colourful and creepy coffee moulds to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the discovery of penicillin.

to commemorate the discovery, britain's royal society of chemistry (rsc) wants people to e-mail photographs of furry coffee cups from their offices and factories," the article sez.

and by the way, what exactly is wrong with riding your horse through the coffeeshop's drive-in window? that's what i'd like to know.

ok, maybe ramming the police car with the horse was a bit much. . .although i do find that a bit hard to believe.

as a former farmgirl let me assure you no saddle horse -- you don't train horses, they train you! -- is going to do anything it doesn't want to. if you can get a horse to "obey," well, trust me: it's only because it's part of their own larger grand plan. . .or because they feel like indulging you at the moment, fool.

if the horse attacked the cops, it's because they annoyed it, that's for sure!
