"...banana skins and orange peels...in abundance"

What a NICE way of gently chiding the SLOVENLY visitors about tossing their garbage along the trailside!

Okay, I love it - the release and the sign. But I need a little help here. Obviously, there's a gag built into WhichTwoCoos, but I'm just not getting it.

Would you be a good chap and translate that from British into English? wink

It's already in English Skip smileysmiley there was an app that came out last year called What3Words - it uses the gos on your phone to give you three 'random' words that provide a unique 10ftx10ft square of wher you currently are.  All rescue teams and emergency's services wer inundated with emails from people telling us that this app was the most amazing thing in the world and we should all be using it.  After a year or so of reminding people,that there was already an amazing grid system on the maps that people should (be invariably don't) carry - we just decided to maybe have a little fun.

Mike, gentle reminders work best round these parts, or so we've found.

I bet they dig their little claws into the perch when they realise they're about to be switched over to the adult diet!

Very clever!

You had me convinced until "slide rule calculation". Honestly. When I started reading I thought it was a Scottish application where you put tracking chips into cows, paint big numbers on their side and the rescuee reports on the numbers on the nearest 2 cows.

Funnily enough we had a couple of similar comments - we have a herd of highland coos not far from here
