2. IT Samuel (who you may recognise as Sustainable Gorilla or Pink Bishop on a Lunch Break) got his sister to
illustrate his most recent cast with some fish. To date, Samuel has
broken all his toes, 4 fingers, his coccyx, wrist and his right
heel as well as tearing his Achilles tendon, lightly shredding some
knee cartilage and putting a gardening fork through his foot (plus
the welly he was wearing at the time). He also tore his right
bicep, failed to get it repaired and now only has a monocep. So his
sister has her work cut out.
As part of our mini
movies competition, we've got some rather special little film
makers' kits to give away. We've spoken to lots of film makers over
the past few months, and enclosed in these kits are the things that
they said they'd be lost without*.
*think more along the lines of sticks, strings and minature sized
train models than champagne, giant dinosaurs and red carpets...

We ran a caption competition last month asking you to tell us
what words should accompany our lemur on our next round of orange and apple
juice labels. After a side-splitting session reading through all
the suggestions we eventually selected Leyla's caption as our
winner (you can see the rest of our favourites here).
We were so impressed with the quality of the captions first time
round that we thought we'd run the competition again, and give you
all another chance to try your hand at becoming a published
So, you know the drill - what is this sheep thinking, saying, or
Just post your caption as a comment below, and we'll announce
the winner in a few weeks' time. The top ten runners up will each
get a load of innocent goodies, and the winning caption will be
printed on our juice labels alongside the sheep this summer, and
read by gazillions* of people. Fact.
**Competition now extended to Wednesday 11th May** Good
