At some point, somethin' has had it away with a leaf * (Karl Pilkington)

* Karl's explanation of an insect which has evolved to look like a leaf to protect itself from prey.

I have delved into the Wozza library again after reading the slew of recent music magazines bought a few weekends ago (Mojo, Uncut, and The Word). Each month we head to the Dubai Mall for haircuts and I get to stock up on the monthly music magazines at the same time.

As is fairly obvious I am reading a book by Karl Pilkington at the moment called Happyslapped by a jellyfish. Karl is the comic who works with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. He's become a big hit in the podcast world with them via his deadpan delivery. And he writes books!! a run down of Karl's holidays over the years. He also includes some drawings and some of his poetry. Funny? I laughed until I stopped.

Here is his genius poem about jellyfish:
I don't like jellyfish, they're not a fish, they're just a blob.
They don't have eyes, fins or scales like a cod.
They float about blind, stinging people in the seas.
And no one eats jellyfish with chips and mushy peas.
Get rid of 'em.
Love and peace - Wozza
