Nobby in "Not Hibernating" shock!

Lenny was reading his Sunday newspaper this morning, what with all it's different sections; news, TV guide, sport, posh glossy magazine, DVD of a really old film no-one's heard of, er.. media, whatever that is, more sport, fashion, last week's news in case you missed it, sudoku special, free "celebrity knees" photo special, etc etc (that was only half of it! Nearly a tree's worth of paper in there I reckon). ANYWAY, in the Holiday section, he was reading about how people with lots of money go away to hot countries over Christmas, which is very sensible I'd say, and he was looking at the lovely photo of people bathing on the beach, when suddenly he realised he recognised one of the faces lapping up all the sunshine!!
Take a look yourself...towards the bottom left on the green and yellow stripey towel, the little hedgehog, who looked suspiciously like NOBBY!

So, being the curious types we had a sneaky look under the hedge where we left him a couple of months ago to see if he was still tucked away in his little bed...

Well, what a flippin' surprise! Under the the little duvet wasn't Nobby snoring away, but his pillow which he'd covered up to make it look like it was him under there.
Unbelievable! There's us all thinking he's snuggled up all cosy escaping the chilly winter, when in fact he's sneaked off to Tenerife for a couple of months without telling us! We're all freezing our ears off and he's drinking cocktails in the boiling sunshine. Cor, just you wait till I see him, the cheeky beggar.

What I want to know is, how can he afford such an expensive trip? He's only a little hedgehog, and he's always borrowing 50p off me!

But does he ever give you your 50pences back?! Maybe that's how he's managed to save up enough dough. "'Ere Dewek, lend us 50p would ya? I'w pay it back, honest." Then on the fiftieth request it suddenly dawns on you that he never paid you the first lot back!

I never thought of that. I must borrow money more often.

Fat Tony...could I have £469.99 please?

Fat Tony said...

Sorry, Gertie. I'm saving all my pennies for my next world domination bid. I've got an exercise bike a dozy budgie bought me for xmas - you can flog it on eBay if you like. If I ever get out of the fix I'm in.

Maybe Mole found some treasure last year and Nobby borrowed some of that!

I wouldn't like to be the one who rubs suntan oil on Nobby.
