This is a question Stuff I've found

Freddy Woo writes, "My non-prostitute-killing, lorry driving uncle once came home with a wedding cake. Found it in a layby, scoffed the lot over several weeks."

What's the best thing you've found?

The story of the owl
(or how staying in is far more fun than going out)

Let me take you back about 10 years to a warm sunny day in the May half term. Mummy and Daddy Sinner have promised the little Sinners (me and my little brother) a day at the zoo. This however was not to be - the littlest Sinner had been naughty all week so as punishment the trip to the zoo was cancelled.

So there I was minding my own business walking downstairs to make something with my Fimo when there, in the middle of the stairs was the most beautiful barn owl.

"Come quickly" says I - "there's an owl on the stairs" so over the littlest Sinner comes to take a look "Mummy, Daddy - there's an owl on the stairs". "Oh yes, so there is" says Daddy Sinner "Don't be silly" says Mummy Sinner "you're having me on". "But there is, there is, there really is".

After much persuasion Mummy Sinner comes over and sees that yes, indeed there is an owl on our stairs! So we boxed up the owl and took it to the bird lady of Taplow. She is a lovely person who has devoted most of her life to looking after sick animals, especially birds. I've tried looking for an article about her, but can't find any. She's not quite an eccentric - too nice for that!

Turns out the owl had only flown from the community centre, less than 1/4 mile away so it had to be given back that afternoon.

But the owl is certainly the best thing I've ever found - I love owls!

But of course.
Everyone is fond of owls.

"the owls are not what they seem"
but I agree this was a cool thing to witness
