Dearest Blu-Tacologists,

As a sheepy ewe would think I'm very sticky...instead, it's just ' charisma' that makes people want to stick close to me so much !!..and can ewe blame them ?

Take a look at Arbuthnot Blu-Tac The 3rd,

He's a fine looking fellow, very friendly with this persons left hand...and yet, although he is proficient at sticking posters and walls and keeping jugs of water attached to a table he is not so particularly ' sticky' in this persons hand...



..why's that then ?..why is Arbuthnot so good at sticking things together yet, himself, is not so sticky ?


This query taunts me this Sunday, this Mothering Sunday (UK).. if ewe know the answer...please do reveal it here !


Thanking ewe

Hugs & Shmishes

mwah mwah mwah




Neil
Arbuthnot Is A Tic-Tac eating Tic-Tac-Toe Playing Blu-Tac
