That's dinner sorted

On Saturday we popped into Cambridge after visiting the family in Newmarket.  Driving along the dual carriageway a very silly pheasant - and lets face it they are the silliest of all birds - decided to cross the road in front of us.   It did not live to tell the tale.
We thought no more about it and arrived in Cambridge, parked the car by a meter in the lovely collegy area called the backs and went off to do our shopping. It was only when we got back to the car an hour or so later that we realised that the dead pheasant had somehow remained attached to the front of the car and it was stuck in the front like a trophy! A little emabarrasing to say the least. Anyway, Trev, managed to kick the corpse off so infact some fox or cat will probably have a delicious dinner.

I'm with Chris - Trev can pluck pheasants, we did those 2 very ripe birds once

Oddly enough it is considered poaching if you eat a bird you killed buy road kill if somebody else killed it.
Anyway, still wouldn't have done it. Just not that hungry. You are forgetting who eviscerated those bird, Helen! Also where would you hang the stinking thing. Better off for all of us as fox food

That would make a great 'funny story' for Pointless'.
