No, Hamish, nooo!

I know it was some brainbox or other who said death should always be a tragedy because, if not, it means life has become one but sometimes, gosh, it can be amusing. And if this headline - Labrador shoots its owner dead on hunting trip – isn’t one of the best of the year then, frick me, we’ve got some hilarity to look forward to.

Well that sounds about right. Which reminds me I really ought to get around to buying Huysman's A Rebours - though I think I might be beyond corrupting these days.

Why is it that freak hunting accidents only ever happen in Texas...?

I was writing a story at work about a toy company that makes toy guns that fire marshmallows or something. Anyway, I was saying to one of the guys here that it was sort of ridiculous to combine confectionary with firearms as a toy for children. His reponse? "It actually seems totally normal to me... but then I'm from Texas."

The funniest thing is apparently these incidents are common. Man's best friend? I think not.
