Did you hear the one about the woman who joined her own search party?

After yesterday’s post I can do with a laugh.  Luckily the interwebs are full of humorous tidbits to lighten the mood.

Like the story of the woman who stepped off a tour bus in Iceland to freshen up, and when she came back they didn’t recognise her and reported her missing.  They immediately started looking for her and she, not realising the missing person being described was her, joined in the search that lasted until three in the morning.  This begs three questions:

  1. How bad did she look when she got off the bus and what did she do to affect such a radical change in appearance in what seems to be the middle of nowhere? (Side-note:  Could she be a superhero?)
  2. Did she not speak to anyone on the bus?  Surely this wouldn’t have happened had she been on a first-name basis with any of her fellow travellers.
  3. Most important of all – seeing as she had an entire search party helping her, did this experience at least help her find herself?

And here’s another rendition of 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall, the song for this week’s Song Title Challenge.

This week’s song is the immortal American classic, Ninety-Nine Bottle of Beer on the Wall Guess who suggested it.  No, really.  Guess.  Bumblepuppies reckoned this song will make a good thriller.
