fancy pterodactyls

It has been mentioned that I may, upon a Friday evening, merely use this group as a receptacle for a thought, which then remains unflushed for the weekend, while absent myself in activities outwith, like scouring the bounds of Surrey for pterodactyls.

An outlandish accusation and a monstrous calumny.

Someone has to worry about the pterodactyls. They steal children, you know.

Do they? Why would they? And why wouldn't they bring them back very quickly?

Are they anti-storks then?

That's possible, I'm still haunted by the child that ran up to us and declared PTERODACTYLS! Maybe they whisk them away to their aerie on the Greensand Ridge. They're safe from plesiosaurs up there.

I thought they were all in Cardiff?
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

"While not dinosaurs, pterosaurs such as Pteranodon form a clade closely related to dinosaurs as both fall within the clade Avemetatarsalia." - Weakypodia.

They've got great big FOAD wings and they're classified by their foot bones?  :facepalm:
But they never got to Carcassonne.

My first thought was that Ian had encountered some pterodactyl fanciers.

As in pterodactyl racing.

If one of these is flying in Surrey next weekend it has nothing to do with me. https://youtu.be/4ZN0XdMgOLE

It's Surrey, of course they're fancy.

I was pointing out to my wife earlier that if we buy a posher pad, we'll need his-and-hers Range Rovers for the driveway. Then we invented an entire genitalia-orientated colour palette. Labial pink and tumescent purple. There might have been gin at Silent Pool. Pterodactyls, fancy or otherwise, sighted. Nil. We may have to track down that kid or venture deeper into darkest Surrey.

Try Newlands Corner.  The geography creates ideal soaring conditions for wandering pterosaurs.

Be careful..

Our neighbours moved to one of the poshest houses in Leatherhead. Top of the hill, standing in its own grounds, reached by a gravel drive, heated pool. They were both doctors, socialists and went on marches to Aldermaston with CND.  They had a green VW beetle and a silver Volvo. The house was was pure Scandinavia inside. Within a year they emigrated to Australia and were never seen again.
Sic transit and all that..
