    Cycling in today, I saw a buzzard in the middle of Reading and a duck in the middle of campus, although, to be fair, there is a lake not that far away. I can't help feeling this portents something.;)

    My mate had that and he died.

    What was the buzzard in the middle of reading? I didn't know they could read, that's interesting...

    My mate had that as well. You forgot to mention that the death is normally after the week of excruciating pain caused by Boils on every part of the body and within every orifice which burst in big purple goo.

    Unlucky, Yellow Fang.

    It used to shoot me up every time I saw a raven after sneaking under age into The Omen.

    You might see that as a joke, but when I lived in Reading I was walking past WH Smiths and saw a sign "Don't tax reading" and turned round to my mate and asked "Why are they going to tax Reading?":blush: Took me years to live that down

    You probably need to look carefully at the capitals of reading and Reading to get it in text

    I saw a Llama in Belbroughton the other day, deeply worrying.

    Probably the entrails of some poor furry animal.

    Maybe he was reading your gruesome future in the entrails of roadkill.

    I saw another dead sheep. It has been there 2 days now. Wonder how long it will take the farmer to move it.

    I cycled past a rather ripe dead fox on the tow path.

    Plus, horribly, a seagull flying down Shoreditch High Street with a pigeon weakly flapping in its beak.

    I cycled past what I thought were two dead badgers yesterday (on the way to the pub after work), then I realised each only had two legs and one had no head.

    On the way back one of the halves had left the scene.
