Why do Cows lie down in the Rain?

Theories abound on this matter. Some say that cows can sense the changes in atmospheric pressure that occur before rain and will lie down to keep their sensitive underbelly dry. A similar suggestion is that they just want to preserve a dry patch of grass to lie on. However, the most prevailing opinion is that they just lie down when they are full and content and that any correlation with rain showers is coincidence.

What do you call a man with a spade in his head?

An ambulance. Surely if you saw a man with a spade buried in his head your immeadiate thought would be to make sure that he wasn't about to die and then get him medical attention. It would probably also be important to get him into the recovery position (submitted by Ian)

What do you get if you pour Boiling Water down a Rabbit Hole?

If you were to do it in a protected environment, you would get at the very least a stern talking to by a ranger or warden, but it could lead to a fine or legal prosecution.

How does an elephant get ready for his holidays?

Strictly speaking, elephants do not go on 'holidays' as we would describe them. They do however, embark on seasonal mass migrations, though more out of necessity, rather than for leisure. The herd travels for many miles (usually in an anti-clockwise circular direction) to seek out the most fruitful feeding, watering and breeding grounds.

"Knock, knock"

"Who's there?"
"It's Dave, your bells broken."

How do you make a Sausage Roll?

Firstly, roll out the pastry and cut out 4 strips (10 cm by 7cm)
Split the sausage meat into 4 separate parts and roll in 4 sausages so they cover the length of the pastry strips.
Place the sausage meat in the center of the rolls and baste half the pastry with the beaten egg and fold the pastry over so that the meat is covered by it.
Baste the rolls with the beaten egg and place in the a preheated oven of 200 degrees C (400 degrees F) and cook for roughly 25 minutes until golden brown.

How do Welsh people eat Cheese?

Red Dragon (Y-Fenni) cheese can be served as a table cheese or melted on toast. Conversely, Llanboidy is often used in cooking but can be enjoyed with sliced apple. Vegetarian cheese Caerphilly pairs well with a crisp Chardonnay and Tintern is the ideal pub cheese.
