Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 18-9-2017

We have now a rabbit hutch!

I have to admit to being at my family’s, yesterday.

Partly to have dinner.   And partly to help build a new rabbit hutch for my nephew’s rabbits.

Jude helped, of course.

Well … 

He pointed pout the bits me, Grandma and Mummy got wrong … 

With nephews like that … 


Let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Olga* and Debbi† putting in their answers: with both scoring five out of five.

Here’s a thought …
“I don’t think it was right and I don’t think it was legal but I don’t have enough legal knowledge to be 100% sure of the latter.”
Mo Mowlam, MP, 18 September 1949 – 19 August 2005, speaking about The Iraq War.
And a tune … 

Today’s questions will be answered in tomorrow’s Teaser.

Have a good … day … 

*        Pronounced pres-e-dent-TAY, Olga?   I’m getting mental images of South American dictators, here.   But I take your point.   And you can’t go having politicians with a sense of humour, they’d never get anything done!   (Yeah, Cult’s the most recent series.   American Horror Story’s quite interesting, in that sense: each series is a completely different storyline, and the regular cast playing different characters.   You don’t have to have watched the previous six series to enjoy Cult.)

†        Yeah, the 1970s had a few good ones lurking about, Debbi!   (I’d heard, somewhere, Joan’s was gay: but apparently, she’s always refused to confirmed it.   But she’s definitely vegetarian: AND been Weird Al’ed!   At ANY rate, meant to ask if you’ve seen Coven, the third series of American Horror Story?   I caught one episode, last night — episode seven, I think — that … well, I think they were going for a Maltese Falcon kind of feel.   You know, lots of seedy bedrooms, police sirens in the background.   (Actually, Danny Huston’s in it: turns out he’s John Huston’s son.)
