On my walk to work this morning, I noticed the rather unpleasant sight of a dead squirrel on the side of the road. Its head had been crushed into the pavement, while one side of its body had burst open, leaving the lungs, liver and various other bodily organs exposed. A long intestine lay strung from the corpse. I wanted to collect the carcass and leave it in somebodies lunchbox for a hilarious practical joke, but got too freaked out when I saw the blood. I didn’t even take a photo. What a scardy cat I am. What did amuse me was, just before crossing the road where the squirrel lay, a van pulled up right in front of it. A man got out, before putting up a sign labelled “Diversion” with an arrow pointing right, around the animal. I laughed. You probably had to be there.

When I walked home, the sign was still there and so was the squirrel. It looked smellier than eight hours earlier and had lots of flies buzzing around it. Again, I chickened out of taking a photo, in case anyone saw me and thought I was a weirdo. If you were after something filthy to brighten up your Monday night, sorry to disappoint you. Instead, I’ll post something equally disturbing for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
