Parkour Calamity for Octopus Io

Octopus Io has been out and about in East Lothian, practising his parkour skills. All was going well until he inadvertently decided to make an assisted jump with the help of a trampoline in someones' back garden. With the adrenaline rushing through his veins he over-egged his pudding somewhat and ended up having to grab for a set of power lines in order to avoid falling into a deep and vertiginous quarry. After the initial fright and the terrifying sensation of electricity coursing through his body, Octopus Io decided that letting go was the best option. He had no real idea of what was below him and as a result fell through the high branches of a large, spreading rhododendron bush to the ground. Laying there motionless for a while he stared up at the sky and marveled at the beauty of the clouds passing overhead. It was a blustery day and the clouds raced frantically from the south west to the north east. He was feeling pretty tired and he knew it would be a long and fairly boring walk home. Perhaps if he imagined himself there already, he could wake up at home?

Green Frog Forever - Birthday Special

The Galilean Moon Creatures have all gathered here today for a very special commemoration. It is the birthday of the great and venerable Green Frog. Green Frog was born on this day in 1926 in the city of Stettin in what used to be known as the Weimar Republic. The moon creatures miss his presence greatly, as he has had a massive influence on both their art and their way of thinking. Without him they would not be here today. Ceremonies started early this morning and several moon creatures are already somewhat worse for wear. Bandit Io and Ganymede have imbibed so much that they are now both drooling uncontrollably in the corner of the room surrounded by a collection of empty bottles, a broken chair and various food remnants. They were supposed to be involved in a special flag raising ceremony later on today, but it has become clear that they cannot carry out these duties effectively. It has been decided that Xuanwumen will carry out this task for them. He is far more dependable and is in fact teetotal; as a result, not a drop of alcohol has passed his lips. He is quite proud of this fact.
