SNOW Prince and Princess

or rather,

“How not to do it in the snow!”

 

I suppose we have to give our dear boB the benefit of the doubt…. It was an innocent mistake after all -- Bubo scandiacus* does kinda sound like another boB-il-icious scandle, right?

 

Regardless, I am certainly glad that the Forest Ranger believed you when you told him you had mistaken the elusive white snowy owl for your new feathered English bird, Kyla because if he didn’t this story would be very, VERY short indeed…

 

Now, none of this would have happened had boB not decided to play Hide and Go Seek with the illustrious, pale as a ghost Kyla, of the lovely white hair, skin and clothes.

 

It all proved too elusive a target for our dear near-sighted boB and when on the Snowy Owl Sled Dog Tour he jumped off, on to the poor, little, snowy owl, who luckily escaped into the trees and saved herself while our flailing boB slid down the hill of snow and became the attraction of the day: “boBBy the Snowman!”

 

All would have been happily ever after, had he not ended up in the Longleat Safari Park where the staff had set up a couple of other snowmen out of a morbid curiousity about what it would look like to be eaten by a tiger.

 

To this end they installed some hidden video cameras inside the pair of snowmen situated near some of their,  ummmm… pet tigers.

 

Snowmen and tigers being natural enemies, the big cats promptly disemboweled the snowmen — hey, we said they were enemies, not that it was a fair fight!

 

The curious and playful tigers then made a valiant effort to feast on the snowmen remains, offering a never-before-seen look at what it’s like to be devoured by a tiger.

 

Well, never before seen by anyone who walked or rather R A N  away………………boB

 

And the moral of our story is . . .

”If you ever drop your keys into a river of molten lava, let'em go, because, man, they're gone.”
