I too like snatch.

I must admit that I’m pretty fond of the runner up myself!

You gotta love the ‘chicken that a vegetarian would live with’ and ‘rudest rooster’ award.So it appears that not just any cock will do will do!

Umm….haha what the hell? I’m with poetix, kind of mean to name the classroom per as best with chips.

I too like snatch.

As a little girl, if I had a chicken I had looked after, and it was awarded ‘best chook with chips (or potatoes)’, I would have been a weeping mess. Or organising a petition to save Snatch.

Thank god I’ve toughened up into such a toughie. And pass the tissues.
