Pacific Ram   The story of a Yorkshire tup who, turned into a flock of 200 prime young ewes, really couldn't be arsed.  It all ends in tears - and, indeed, in mutton stew.

Snore-Horse:

Upon returning from the trenches, Thunderbolt, an otherwise unremarkable horse, earned temporary fame as an amazing flat-racing horse.

All his jockey had to do was lean forward, shout "Incoming!", and a sudden bolt of PTSD inspired adrenaline would turn Thunderbolt into a four-legged rocket, easily outdistancing his competitors.

Unfortunately his career was shortlived because he also suffered from narcolepsy, and would occasionally fall sleep at a full gallop and lie down, totally unconscious

The first two falls were was put down to stress.  On his third fall he killed the jockey, and, as he was the only one who knew the 'magic word', Thunderbolt quickly became just another 'also ran'.

For a short spell he was in demand as a stud, in the hope that his mysteriously speedy genes might be passed on to some future champion.  But when he passed out and crushed a rather fragile little mare during one of his 'coverings' his final career as dogfood was waiting for him.

Dog Day Afternoon Snooze  As far as I know, this is a true story.  A multi-prize-winning male dachshund was put up for stud at the end of his show career.  Only then did they discover that he had narcolepsy.  Episodes are commonly triggered by stress of some kind - his, it turned out, were triggered by sexual arousal.  His owners kept coming back to the boudoir to find their prize stud snoring on the hearth-rug and the intended object of his attentions looking round at them saying, "Is that it?"

Jo: Poor little dachshund.

Reminds me of Gordon Brown.  A man who had clearly spent his whole life 'laying in wait' for the top job of Prime Minister, then, within three days of getting it, clearly looked as if he understood totally what a 'poisoned chalice' it was.

(Just another 'people watcher's impression.)

Quote from: Gyppo on October 03, 2022, 04:01:14 PMReminds me of Gordon Brown...


Though it's certainly true that all political careers end in failure, it's more true of Brown than most.  I always felt he was a good chancellor, just a very uncharismatic person - and being PM requires charisma.  Ask Liz Truss.  On the up-side, Brown has been more impressive since leaving No 10 than he ever was while he lived there.

Oh yes, the game...

Grand Theft - Autonomous

Elon Musk's private version of the similarly named game.  It still involves stealing expensive cars, including whatever the latest and greatest version of the Tesla range may be, and mowing down hapless pedestrians.

But, the game plays itself, without any input from those fatally flawed and inept human beings.  They are permitted to watch it on a remote monitor but can do nothing to influence the outcome.  It cannot be turned off, or destroyed.
