A leopard never changes spots –
Or maybe that’s the cheetah –
I couldn’t help but wonder if
A pinstripe would be neater.
As I stated last week, I am always baffled by the patterns that animals display on fur and hide. A number of you good people explained to me the way a zebra’s stripes work, but how do spots make you disappear on a grassy plain? It never worked for Mr Blobby*.
*Cultural reference for those outside the UK. Mr Blobby was very popular in this country for a number of years. It was a national aberration: one to which no-one in his/her right mind would ever admit to succumbing. Ditto Noel Edmonds…
