A friend of Ivan Fandino , who died yesterday said "It’s a tragedy – we just do not know how it could have happened."
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

stop sticking spears in defenceless bulls in the name of entertainment and Ivan would still be alive .

As an Englishman I find it incumbent upon me to always "root" for the under-dog...or, in this case, bull.

Funny because it's true...A man responding to the attack last night where a man in a Transit drove into a crowd of Muslims leaving Finsbury Park Mosque. He laid part of the blame squarely on what he called "hate preachers" and then went on to name Katie Hopkins.

One of those "your relative who you've never heard of has died in another country and we'd like to give you his money" emails. Two things were different about this one though...

#1 - This one was actually a copy of an email, but it arrived in the post. That's "snail mail" to you kids.

#2 - The recipient was to be named as "officially the next of kin" and had been discovered by an "heir hunter" sent to this country. My mum (aged 93) got one on the same day as my wife. Yes, my wife got one. My wife, who only has that particular surname because she's married to me.

They really do need to do their research, or at least master a basic grasp of how women acquire their surnames. :lol:

Ofcom have received a complaint :techie-typing: about TV series Love Island... :romance-kisslips:

For violence... :violence-hammer:

After a contestant threw a cushion at another contestant in an aggressive manner. :techie-typing:

Ofcom received more complaints about Love Island showing the contestants smoking than they did about the sexual content. :grin:

I found it funny that my wife recently accused me of watching crap on TV ( I don't BTW ), whilst she was watching Love Island at the same time.

That's wives for you.

Who needs google when the wife knows everything.
I love fluffy bunnies
