It was good - Moscow to Madrid to Berlin to Helsinki to Paris to Dover. Apparently it is in Dover. At least they are honest about why its taking so bleeding long to get here. Unlike Yokel/Parcel Farce/ U Pi$$/Fud ex/White Sparrow/Jynx/Sh!ttylink/DHHell*

*TBH, DHL have been very good at delivering stuff form me all over the world despite there not being a depot locally.

    Mine apparently fell off his bike into a canal in Amsterdam. But he got here eventually, safe and sound.

    Mind you, he could have just called into one of Amsterdam's knocking shops and didn't like to say.

    Meerkat toy arrives in Scotland.
    I think I will gaffer tape him to my headtube to ward of evil spirits/trucks/communters.

    I've used the jibbing bas****s for the past 2 years and never had so much as a mention of a meerkat toy!
    Do you have to actually request one before hand? :evil:

    I can see how it must be complete, just as mine is so utterly empty :cry:

    Click on the 'Collect all 6 exclusive Meerkat toys' box, simples

    Though I doubt your life will become complete once you have received you Meerkat Pituophis, maybe you need a Colnago or something for that. Perhaps you should negotiate with the OH and say to her in a hollywoodesque drowning in tears, mascara running style "My life isn't complete...sob...sniff...what I really need darling...sob..sniff...sob [extra effect] is a...sob..sniff..a Colnago, then I will be happy and we CAN live together in perfect harmony for the rest of our lives..."

    My Meerkat arrived safely. I was going to tie him (Alexander) to the grille on the van with a cable tie, but then I thought that he would be covered in dead flies in no time and the Scottish weather is temperamental. Bit cruel.

    I don't see how tempting me with French aftershave will make up for a missing meerkat (or 2) while you show enough contempt to consider cable tying one to the front of your van!
    I suppose you'll gaffer tape a spanniel to the roof rack next :roll:

    Why is it that, given that there is only really one distinguishing physical feature of a meerkat (it's long body), the toys have them with short bodies. If you bought a giraffe toy, you'd expect it to have a long neck. A crocodile toy would be expected to have a big mouth full of teeth. A meerkat toy would have a long body. It isn't as though the irritating puppet ones in the adverts also have compressed spines. It seems odd. Possibly I am thinking too much about this but, in my defence, I at least don't own a meerkat toy........
