Ollie the hedgehog, was a pokey little chap, but he decided to have a stab at swimming across “the pond” to visit his sharp-dressed cousin, Por Q. Pine.

As he swam past the point of no return, his spine tingled with excitement.

We’re on pins and needles here, Ollie and Kate T.

    (and of course I give ’em to her…)

  17. Emmberrann says:

    Not a hog paddle, a hedge paddle.

  18. Pyrit, I think you may have even out-punned 260Oakley with this post!

  19. I hate to make a pointed comment, but those descriptions of hedgehog just weren’t as sharp as I’d expect from CO. I don’t mean this comment to be cutting.
