This is a question When Animals Attack

I once witnessed my best friend savaged near to death by a flock of rampant killer sheep.

It's a kill-or-be-killed world out there and poor Steve Irwin never made it back alive. Tell us your tales of survival.

Rocky, RIP
This topic reminds me, painfully, of Rocky, my prize fighting whelk. Rocky was raised on a whelk stud in North Ferriby on the banks of the Humber. We always knew he had the look of a killer, even when he was small. He'd be first to the trough at feeding time, shoving the others out of the way to get to his dinner.

We trained him well, exercising him every day. He shone amongst the other whelks - he was twice the size and five times as brave.

We got him in the ring for his first fight and he just floored the other opponent. I'd never seen a whelk move so fast. I was so proud of him.

Together we toured the country, fight after fight. Rocky would always triumph, always give everything he'd got to win the prize. He was unstoppable!

Then, one day, we saw an advert for the Mollusc Ultimate Fighting Championships. I was dubious, but I knew I couldn't hold him back, not if that was what he wanted. He rose through the ranks to the cheers of the spectators.

It came to the final. Rocky... didn't make it. His opponent, a shifty looking bivalve if ever there was one, battered him to the ground. Rocky didn't get up. He'd been beaten. It turned out that he was a great whelk warrior, but when it came to the Mollusc Ultimate Fighting Championships, he just didn't have the mussel.

Kaol's right about teh mollusc.
Will ninja :)

Sorry Kaol, it was a gibbering stream of consciousness written in 3 minutes without time to check sources. I apologise to molluscs everywhere.

Gawd bless ya, Rocky.

Dead Rocky Minogue.


This has got to be a front pager of this QoTW.

Did the evil bivalve receive some form of karmic retribution?

North Ferriby
woop woop thats where I live! Every time I visit home form Newcastle I walk into the station and ask for a ticket to Hull (costs the same as going to Ferriby and the ticked person doesn't ask you to spell it out for them)

I feel ashamed every time.

I'm guessing you're not my mate Oaklet? He helped breed Rocky on a raft in the Humber so he'd know all about this story.

this made me laugh as hard as i did because
i waited til after finishing the story to look up what a whelk was, and it put the whole story in a wonderful new perspective

time to stop drinking
