    He's not as 'Eagle' eyed as you thought. But I guess he'll have a 'little' 'Barn'y when he catches up with you. Umm.. while drinking a 'tawny' port? I dunno.

    Loads of times. My ringpiece is quite sore from the sheer frequency of owlbummings I've received

    I think so, but could you define 'owl'?

    No, but my cat has.
  • I was being followed an owl who kept winking at me giving me the come on but in the end the owl changed its mind as it was raining.

    Yep the owl declined because it was too wet to woo....

    I'll get me coat. :wink:

    I was offered once but I declined. The owl in question wasn't much of a head-turner.


    The older I get, the better I was.

    Given the size of an owls cloacal protuberance it would be unlikely, now an ostrich would be a different matter... :shock:

    Was it pellet-ing down? If it was that wet, presumably you had to feather your brakes......?

    what about if you got left hooked by a car, ended up in a ditch an just by chance your shorts fell down an you happen to land on a owl

    is that still classed as being bummed?

    No, that's bumming an owl, the owl would have to fall in your censored , to be bummed by an owl.

    I would like this point being cleared up because being bummed by an owl is one thing, but bumming an owl.....c'mon that's just sick man.

    Never been bummed by any nocturnal birds. Got offered a censored by an ostrich once.

    It was dodgy as I was swooping down a hill quite fast and I do admit I was flapping.... :P
