Do you remember this photo by bobstafford? When it was published in the Post earlier this month, it had four immediate effects:
You will be able to read this opus in this week's issue of the h2g2 Post. You will also be able to read other, possibly worthier fiction, because we have a storytime bonanza this week. Paulh has an in-depth look at fairy construction workers, while Pinniped has found out more than even he wanted to know about horseshoes. Meanwhile, Paigetheoracle waxes speculative with a cautionary tale about smart houses. We've got your entertainment mapped out.
Remember to take a look at the new Create Challenge, and record your own encounters with nature. The latest encounter of Elektra Gheorgheni has her demanding the Editor set up an infrared camera to catch that raccoon in the Post Office backyard. It is admittedly annoying that the little bandit undid the twist ties (!) and stole an entire cake of suet from the Hanging Cow dispenser, much to the chagrin of the local birds. He's a piggy with the disturbing manual dexterity of his tribe. The next night she forgot to take the suet in, he made off with the whole dispenser, and we haven't found it yet. Tell us about your adventures! And have a great week!
PS: Thanks to all who made Towel Day a social media success. Especially Bluebottle, whose cartoon was 'liked' more than 42 times on Twitter alone. But then, towels aren't only for Towel Day, as h2g2ers know. Keep the faith!
