it was a turtle disaster
i have just posted a SIMULTANEOUS thread with lots of 't' alliteration.
hi mate, how's it going?
yeah pretty good dude... actually was just about to-
-sorry to interrupt dude but was a bit worried about this crash on the m25
you mean you haven't heard?
no, what's happened?
pretty serious crash on the m25 mate... it's been closed from junction 8 to 12. or maybe even 13, can't remember. should check though
why, what actually happened?
there was a crash between two trucks apparently going to the same place cause they were both pretty much carrying the same thing - which is now obviously all over the motorway. pretty horrific
what were they carrying?
one was carrying terrapins and the other was carrying tortoises!!
yeah... it was a TURTLE DISASTER!
'but why would the truck be carrying tortoises? It's been illegal to import tortoises in this country since the 1980s.'
'It was a turtle disaster.'
'But tortoises and turtles are two distinct species. As are terrapins, though they do share a more recent common ancestor than tortoises and turtles share.'
'We are no longer friends.'
