A “revelation in feline dining” sounds like a new way to prepare cat, but apparently it isn’t. Cat owners can now offer their furry friends a soup course prior to the kibble entrée. Royale Broths come in four flavours, including “tuna, surimi & whitebait.” Sounds so good you could just try it yourself, eh.
HEAPS of hair fell to the floor of Southern Cross Bar last Saturday. Three local girls stepped up and had their heads shaved in front of a large crowd. They raised thousands of dollars for Leukemia & Blood Cancer’s Shave for a Cure. Good on ya, gals!
PETONE might consider a special crossing on Waione Street for web-footed pedestrians. Wellyword commuters had to slam on their brakes to avoid making pate out of a mother duck and her brood of ducklings.
A Wellyworder was vacationing in Rotorua with her family visiting from China when they decided to see a show. Needing six tickets for the group, the sister-in-law raised her pinkie finger to the box office attendant, whose face went pale and solemn. Her brother-in-law stepped in to say they needed six tickets and explain that’s the Chinese gesture for six. “Here, it’s a gang sign,” said the relieved box office attendant. The family are still wondering whether flashing the sign was the reason they got their tickets at such a big discount.
