100% Beaver is sure to evade the spam filters

In a strange echo to an old Abba video, Anne and I sit back-to-back each morning, reading our own respective news feeds, each on our own respective computers.

Anne usually finds bizarre deaths less funny than me, but she could not stop laughing as she read this story out loud. Especially the latest in a series comment

A beaver has attacked a 60-year-old fisherman in Belarus, slicing an artery and causing him to bleed to death.

It was the latest in a series of beaver attacks on humans in the country, as the rodents, who have razor-sharp teeth, have turned increasingly aggressive after wandering near homes, shops and schools.

Full article.

Meanwhile, I was scanning the sports page of the BBC, where this excellent fuck you was written.

When asked by BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew if England had been at "100%" during their victory, Flower responded: "I'm sure when you reflect on your broadcasting today you wouldn't have been at 100%; none of us operate at 100%.

And although I love Andy Flower's quote he is obviously wrong. It's actually possible to give 110%. I learned that from watching interviews with mathematicians athletes.
