Sirocco gives kakapo a bad name…

October 4, 2009

There’s not many people who get to see kakapo these days… and even fewer who can say they’ve been shagged by a kakapo. 

This video (which is apparently a hit on Youtube) comes from the new BBC series Last Chance to See , part of which was filmed in New Zealand last summer.  I hope the series will be shown in New Zealand sometime soon!

Irish comedian Dara O’Briain talking about science, journalistic “balance”, homeopathy and other things

Thanks to Open Parachute for posting this and making me laugh on a slow friday afternoon.
