Slightly Old Hat

December 9, 2007

Do you think they had a competition to name the bear (and lied about it afterwards…)?
My teddy was just called………..Teddy. My panda was called……….Panda. And I had a koala bear called……….Humphrey. Broke the mould there! And a goldfish called…………George (who split because we fed him too much). Poor George.

    I had two pandas, Daddy Mugger and Baby Mugger. That’s before muggers were called muggers, of course.

    Your goldfish split?!<br/><br/>I had an elephant called…Nellie.

    I had a strange pink &amp; blue dog/lamb hybrid knitted by my Auntie Jessie, called Lambchop, (inspired by Lambchop)<br/><br/><br/>Guess how many British teachers are going to volunteer in Sudan from now on?

    Haven’t a clue about the competition- they lied anyway.<br/>I had a teddy, a budgie, a goldfish all called Billy. I should have broke the mold.

    Goldfish are for life…<br/>I went in to a pet shop. I said, "I’d like to buy a goldfish?" The guy said,"Do <br/>you want an aquarium?" I said, "I don’t care what star sign it is."

    A dog-teddy thing called "woah woah".<br/><br/>Apparently I named him myself.<br/><br/>What did muggers used to be called then Geoff?

  7. I used to have a donkey behind the potting shed. Well it wasn’t really a donkey it was an old tin can. I used to feed it grass. My mother went along with it but I think it worried her.

    My rabbit split as my brother and I each pulled one of its legs during a fight. Messy.

    Then my mum had to sew it back up to stop me crying.

    I had a teddy with a sort of squeaky thing in its chest that went <i>UH UH</i>, so he was called Uh Uh Bear. Then the squeaky thing stopped working, so he became George.<br/><br/>I met Valerie Singleton once. She was absolutely delightful.

    i had a tonka dump truck i used to sleep with; it was named ‘mohammed’.

    Muggers used to be called cads and rotters.<br/><br/>My pandas were little rotters.

  13. Arabella permalink

    The name of my rabbit was Bunny. I used to to worry when it was washed and hung on the line by its ears.

    My teddy is called Cuddly. He’s sheepskin, but much mended and is 40+ years old. I have a red panda toy called "Little Red" and and unnamed plushy crayfish from New Orleans.<br/><br/>I also had a couple of koalas (both called Tikki), some rabbits (both called Tog after the character in the Pogles), a felt horse called Bobbin and various other toys.<br/><br/>On my desk is a unicorn called Bollockchops and a lion called A*seface, both named by the guy who used to share my office.

    Geoffster – how strange you are..<br/><br/>The Whalester – yes – we fed it too much and it split!<br/><br/>Annie – trust you to have a knitted hybrid. Grandma’s don’t knit much now do they? (In my case – thank goodness!)<br/><br/>Seanster – my granny had a budgie called Joey and we all hated it. I used to try and teach it swear words but it wouldn’t comply the bastard!<br/><br/>Isterness – what like pyrex? the thirteenth sign of the zodiac! Ha ha – boom boom.<br/><br/>Spinny – woah woah? Like what you say to horses when you command them to stop? How odd you are.<br/><br/>Dickley – I know where you are coming from – don’t worry<br/><br/>Jimmy Pages Troosers – yes – I found out after throwing my Sweep puppet really hard at my bedroom door during a "I don’t want a nap" tantrum that his head was full of sawdust<br/><br/>Timster – oh – we had a uh uh bear. I think we called him Henry Bear. I once went to the Blue Peter set as a child and met Leslie Judd and Peter Pervert who kept calling me ‘pet’. Say no more! they signed my Blue Peter Annual for me.<br/><br/>Firsty – trust you! My brother fractured my collarbone by throwing a tonka toy at me really hard. Little shit. We are friends now but it took until our 20’s to be so.<br/><br/>Arabella – oh – poor bunny – my son had a rabbit called Mr Babbit and I used to tell him that Mr Babbit likes it when we peg him up on the line. He was really rough with poor Mr Babbit after that. I blame myself I really do!<br/><br/>Llewtrah – that’s so funny.
