So there we were watching the most drab and mundane television possible, when the idea of owning a pet came to mind. After brief discussions with house mates, it's possible that we here in Southampton may be getting a ferret or two. This has two benefits:
a) We get to freak people out by not telling them we have any pets and then when they say things like "hey, did anyone hear anything?" we respond nonchalantly with such phases as "oh, you're probably imagining things". Then we get the ferrets to be naturally curious about ankles and boom! Pranks akimbo.
b) We no longer have to pick up any food that we drop.
There is a problem, however, with what to name them. After much deliberation, my housemate Matt came up with the best two:
a) Colonel Marmalade
b) His Royal Highness the Prince of Cuddles
Basically, I'm asking if anyone else can think of anything better.
