Pedantic note: The plural of octopus is not "octopi." If one must use latinate grammar, then more than one octopus would be "octopodes."

Wow, the cleaned up pieces look like they wouldn't be out of place in a Macy's display rack.

'Before I set off in my boat I had a dream the night before of being in the water swimming,' he said. 'Such dreams are supposed to bring luck, so this one turned out to be true.'

i find this very charming.

Kate Middleton's rowing partner runs upper-class orgy club
It takes a racy sort of girl to relish the challenge of rowing across the English Channel. But Kate Middleton may not have realised just how racy the company would be when she agreed to join the rowers in a glamorous all-girl team


I'd hit it all the way across the channel!!!!

I wouldn't really call a bunch of bowls a hidden treasure, but maybe that's just me.

You can never have too much bukket-y goodness.

Dude, a bunch of old bowls is a great way to get my panties in a wad.

But then, I wanna be an archaeologist when I grow up.

They're 900 years old. Shoot, a transformer from the 1980's will fetch you some good dough.

I wonder if the bowls will be on e-bay soon?
