  1. I sort of knew about humming birds. It reminded me of going on holiday to Scotland at the end of August.
    We stopped at a services in the Lake District. It was blowing a gale, and I saw a crow I think it was, trying to fly into it. It was going backwards!
    I knew border collies are the smartest dogs, but not that labradors were the third. My mum’s didn’t seem too bright.
    Debbie, I love your memes., especially the 2020 one.

  2. Great funnies! And you presented some fascinating facts there Sally, but I would beg to argue that the most stupid dog is not the Afghan. It is, in fact, the Mastin – or Spanish Mastiff (southern variety). This was proven last week when I took my dogs for a walk in the campo surrounding our property and instead of coming from A to B when called, she went via C & D and finished up stuck in E, even though she could easily have then reached us by coming via F. She never did make it to B where the rest of us were.

  3. Great laughs! I love the film “2020”. So true, Debby! I read your list to my husband, Sally. Little did we know! I did read recently that Ostriches don’t actually stick their heads in the sand. I can’t remember why I was researching that one. Lol. 🙂

  4. Hilarious stuff today, ladies! I liked them all but especially the shipwrecked doctors. Is poor legibility a prerequisite to get into medical school?

    I’m also a fan of the fun facts. Some eye-opening stuff right there.
