    What a fun thread! I've lost 2 x 2-year-old kids and a newborn (as of this morning) - which is lucky as I'm hopeless with kids :p

    I love dogs though. If any one wants to swap my 3 lost chlidren (see above) for a red setter I'd be very interested :D

    i have lost a sperm whale's brain and a rack of baby back ribs...

    does anyone else find it amazing that the average american eats more cheese in a year than pizza? i mean, pizza is bigger and heavier than cheese... maybe it would work. i mean, i suppose you eat cheese more often in other things like sandwiches... still :S

    Ah, but Abz, you (usually) would always have cheese on pizza, but not always pizza with your cheese. So you could eat more cheese than pizza. Well, I could, I love cheese :)

    Lol!
