A Whale of a Time

I saw this video, which I thought was very nice, but not necessarily humorous.

The people involved look surprised.

Tender Teddy Tale

Airport teddy bear mystery solved as the owner comes forward

The owner of a battered antique teddy bear which was abandoned at an airport has finally been found after nearly two years.

The mystery of a 100-year-old battered teddy bear, with a missing eye and floppy ears, which was found abandoned in an airport departure lounge has finally been solved after nearly two years.

Airport staff discovered the antique bear, which had lost much of its fur, in a bag with a black and white photograph of two little girls with the teddy, dated March 1918.

A message on the back of the photo read: “With dearest love and kisses to our darling Daddie from your loving little daughters Dora and Glyn.”

After public appeal launched last summer, the bear’s owner Robert Glyn Baker has come forward.

After finding the bear in 2012, staff at Bristol Airport spent 14 months trawling through flight records to try and spot any passengers matching the names on the photo.

They then launched a public appeal, but were unable to find any living relatives until a story was run in The Mature Times, a newspaper for the over 50s.

Mr Baker was sent a copy of the article and recognised the teddy as a family heirloom he had lost while travelling through the airport on his way to Cyprus.

He said, “I was stunned when I got a cutting of the Mature Times in the post and saw my bear on the front page. I thought it was lost forever, I was convinced it had been destroyed.”

Airport staff were able to date the picture after they enlisted the help of a number of experts and a second message was discovered, which said, “Taken on Baby’s birthday March 4th 1918, one year and five-months-old.”

But, despite identifying the children they were unable to find them.

Launching the appeal last year, Jacqui Mills, an airport spokesman who had kept the bear on her desk, said: “He’s well-loved, that is for sure.

“He looks a bit battered but I think that’s because he has been given so many cuddles over the years. We were certain that someone would claim him, but when they didn’t he was passed over to the airport police who tried every means possible to find his family.”

Robert spotted the bear, which had been nicknamed ‘Bristo’ by staff, after his former wife sent him a cutting of the Mature Times front page from January.

He said, “I’m an only child and my auntie Dora didn’t have any children either so I am the only person that could have got the bear. My mum gave him a different nose, he has pads on his arms too. I think I gave him a rough time when I was a kid. It’s the sentimental value really, my hands were so full with what I was carrying I thought I had left it in the toilet. I had so much with me, but like a fool I left it in the airport. I would love to have it back.”

Found @:


A teddy surrounded by mystery,
Was found to have quite a history;
It was missing an ear,
Being lost caused a tear,
It was found after some publicity.

The bear was really quite old,
When it fell from the family fold;
Lost at an airport,
Without a bear passport,
It was worth its weight in gold.

Officials began a vast search,
On a desk the lost teddy did perch;
It took quite a while,
To bring back a boy’s smile,
Once the bear was removed from the lurch.

The lost bear tale was sent to the press,
The owner was anyone’s guess;
A print message went out,
Finding him was in doubt,
But they’d soon see an end to the stress.

A man recognized his heirloom,
Putting an end to his gloom;
To some it’s a toy,
Lost by a young boy,
When he found it his smile lit the room.

Pee Peeper Poetics


Standing at a urinal in a ballpark men’s room Sunday afternoon, 5-year-old Derek Hill estimated that he likely has about a year left of urinating in public restrooms with his pants all the way down to his ankles.

“It’s probably going to look really weird if I’m still doing this at 7 or 8, and I am willing to acknowledge that,” said Hill, standing with his legs far apart and holding his rolled-up shirt above his abdomen. “Which is annoying, because it’s just so much easier this way, you know?”

“I know it won’t last forever, so I figure I might as well keep dropping my pants to the ground to pee while I still can.” Hill later lamented that as recently as 2012 it had been acceptable for him to avoid the inconvenience of getting up at night to use the bathroom by simply urinating in the comfort of his own bed.”

A boy drops his pants to pee

For everyone in there to see;

He’s really exposed,

Whilst the water flows,

It’s strange; do all you agree?


The kid says he pees in his bed,

That’s something his parents might dread,

He pees in his undies,

On weekdays and Sundays,

You know what I mean; enough said.


Who wrote this cute whimsical tale;

Of a five year old peeing male?

He’s just a child,

Though his story is wild,

Is the writer now out on bail?

Surfing Study Suggests Secret Searches

A survey by McAfee, a security company, found that 70 percent of children visit web sites which contain dangerous material.

And, the kids hide that fact from their parents.

That’s disturbing, but not a surprise. Kids will be kids.

Remember when surfing just mean riding the waves? That was pretty safe, save for a shark bite every now and then.


We must watch our kid’s web activity,

We cannot stand by with passivity;

It’s dangerous out there,

We must be aware,

We must curb their natural proclivity.
