A boar's life

Those of you not up early enough to enjoy 'Farming Today' on R4 are missing something comedic. We've just heard of a sensible boar; "The heat lowers his sperm quality, so in this weather he just wallows all day in a deep mud pit not doing very much and keeping his testicles cool".

Yesterday on site I had to remind the site manager of our potential legal liability for sun damage to his topless workforce. The lads always dismissed the idea of sun-screen until Greenham Safety began producing it in 5ltr tubs; squirting stuff onto your palm from a little bottle is 'girly' but scooping a handful of gloop from a tub is OK, it seems. The tubs are now out.

But I can't help but feeling that the boar has a better time of it.

Is this Cold [or maybe Cool] Comfort Farm??

Very fond of Wild Boar sausages. Inordinately so, might I say.

Radders old chap, I've still got that DVD of Penda's Fen around somewhere...
