I am going to have to bite the bullet and do bit of Xmas shopping for the boys soon. I hope that none of the presents I buy will conceal the kind of surprise that this gift did though.
What kind of present was this from Miss Margaret Bignall’s parents back in 1935?
Surely if they had a plantation in the Solomon Islands as reported there would be many other interesting things that they could have bought home for their daughter as a gift rather than a crocodile egg, still full of crocodile.
I wonder what on earth she was really going to do with the egg anyway. Keeping a not-so-fresh egg in your wardrobe is probably not best practice and could only end in disaster couldn’t it? Stinky, gooey disaster…. Yuck.
I really think that finding a small crocodile hanging out with your frocks, while surprising, is the best case scenario here. 😛
