Random assorted gratuitous weirdness... Was wafting home after Traditional Chinese Medical treatment which, unbeknownst to me, had re-activated the nerves which control intestinal activity. En route, was attacked by an Indian Mynah, a gaily-named, small, aggressive, territorial, drably-coloured introduced species which is not good to eat, has no song to speak of, and is generally good for nothing. With uncharacteristically catlike reflexes, I whipped off my frayed, faded, flecktarn Feldmutze and flung it fast and fiercely at the fluttering faggot. I missed. I blame aerodynamics. Arriving home, I took a heaped tablespoonful of epsom salts, because it seemed like a good idea. The ensuing torrent of turd originally smelled reassuringly shitlike, then turned chemical, then STANK, yes REEKED of carrion. Yeah. Phew!
