:lol: :lol: Intially they ate us bankrupt. A lettuce a day. But then we weaned them off lettuce, and now they even mow the lawn. A bargain indeed. :lol: :clap: The LO likes a taste of a delicious flower here and there too. Yellow's his colour. :wink: :lol: But sometimes red and pink too. :lol:


The burping is LOUD! :shock: :big_eyes: First time I heard it, I gave the Oom a filthy look. I thought he has lost his manners. :roll: :lol: It is a burp like no other - equal in intensity and noise to that of a Schwarzenegger or someone in a movie. Kid you not. And no, no liquor, pure lettuce juice. :lol: :tongue:

ag you have trained them well!! This LO sounds like a bit a pansy to be honest :wink: Only going for colours that suits his sense of fashion :lol: Then again ... in defense of his masculinity ... he does pick fights with a big brute! :clap:

:lol: :lol: :lol: I would love to hear your tortoise burping: "I will be back!" An acting talent that only a staple diet of lettuce juice could provide 8)

:funny: :funny: :funny:



Going to instruct :twisted: the Oom to follow the BO around for the next few days, making sound recordings of his 'I'll-urp-be-urp-back-burps'! :lol: :lol: :lol:



The LO has a sense for the finer things in life. You are right! :lol: :twisted: :tongue:

:funny: :funny: :funny:

I can just imagine how the 'oom' wil react to such an instruction :lol: Its OK the 'oom' will understand the value of the exercise once BO is famous for his "I'll-urp-be-urp-back" line. 8) Head star in the animal kingdom big stage production!

Then every Schwarzenegger movie has a point where the maiden is in the midst of great danger! And Arnold instructs her to get to safety whilst he takes on 100 baddies! And somehow there is always a helicopter as an escape route :? Which means BO will have another famous line: "get-urp-to-urp-the- urp-chopper". :lol: The maiden in distress can be LO :lol:

The LO will be super in this role. He always seems a wee bit in distress. :twisted: :lol: :clap: May we dress 'him' in yellow? :twisted: :whistle:


And we can get BO another line - 'Hasta-urp-la-urp-vista-burp, baby-urp'. :lol: :twisted: :tongue:

:funny: :dance: :dance:

LO will be in a right amount of distress in 'his' yellow dress :whistle: :wink: 8) It rhymes because its true! While a close up of LO's distressed face takes up the foreground, dramatic a violent lighting strikes will blitz the sky behind 'him'.

Just then Tortoise Shwarzenneger makes a decision to save the day!! And burps his final threat to the baddies: "Hasta-urp-la-urp-vista-urp-baby"! And mows them down! A skill he learnt exercising on your garden :lol:

(BTW if ever there was a topic that went slighly off-topic it is this one :lol: )

Ready for more tortoise-action? Now picture this....


-----


The scene is set. The backdrop is a lush, plush, green fertilised lawn... It is silent. Perhaps too silent? :hmz:


Then, there is an ever so slight rustle in the leaves. :shock: Something moves behind a rain forest fern... :big_eyes:


The next moment, there is a helluva commotion as two tortoises streak across the lawn.


The Commander (BO) is running after LO, whilst throwing axes at him (the axes are in his camouflaged Ninja Turtle backpack). BO lets rip a scream of anger and irritation: "Who-urp-is-urp-your-urp-daddy-burp, and-urp-what-burp-does-urp-he-do-burp?"


The LO in distress in the yellow dress with the high pitched voice and poise has a sudden total recall and quips over 'her' shoulder: “Consider that a divorce”. :lol: :tongue:


This takes the BO a lil' by surprise. So, using thermal imaging, he finds another target. Whilst strangling a nearby snail with a barb wire, BO says: "What-urp-a-bur-pain-in-urp-the-neck-burp!"


:roll:
