The stolen lilacs

Our lilac theft has reached to national press and even featured on the television news last night. I would embed the video clip, but it doesn't seem to be embedable (Is that a word?).

It's a dd.
If it is embeddable, I can't figure it out.

DD - Double Diamond, a long-extinct light ale.

I stand corrected - apparently it's not extinct, at least, according to this web site it's not.

Uncle Skip, said...

Yes, I think you had DD confused with Dodo? :)

Wasn't that something one of the Simpsons said? Not that I have ever seen the Simpsons, you understand, but I try to keep my ear to the ground (which makes walking the dog a little difficult, not to say uncomfortable).

Uncle Skip, said...

No, I think the expression from the Simpsons is "Doh!"

Uncle Skip, said...

I only brought up the Dodo because you mentioned extinct.

Brighton Pensioner said...

I don't think the dodo ever lived around here. A New Zealander, wasn't it? Like the kiwi?

Brighton Pensioner said...

The 'extinct' bird around here is the martlet. Now there's a challenge - see what you can find out about that!

Uncle Skip, said...

Dodos were on Mauritius.
Wasn't the martlet supposedly legless?

Brighton Pensioner said...

Oh yes, it was Mauritius. And yes, the martlet is legless, just like so many others in Brighton!
