Well, a weasel's weasily recognised but a stoat's stoatily different.

And the otter? Yes, it is : OTTERLY different. This (brilliant) joke has been in my family for at least 5 generations. Well, when I say 'brilliant'....

The stoat can be easily told from the weasel by the simple fact that its tail is black and its figure slightly the bigger.
Enid bloody Blyton. I forget all sorts, where my keys are, what day it is, but this crap is what I remember. Thank you Children of Cherry Flipping Tree Farm.

Are you my dad, OP?
He used to ask us this at least once a week until we were in our teens thirties.

"Otterly different"! Brilliant. So glad I started this useless thread.

Our local curry house has started serving Chicken Tarka. It's like Chicken Tikka but a bit otter.

at the shocking puns (I guess?) in this thread, but more so at Turtles' post for being genuine in response to the OP title.
Love Chicken Tarka!

What have Winnie the Pooh and Attila the Hun got in common?
Their middle name.
Oh, how I love the old ones.

Why is a politician like a dirty nappy? They're both full of shit.
Not quite as apposite as the others, sorry

Oh I have to be genuine about this. I'm worried for my addled brain. Enid and her weird woodsman Tammylan I remember. Where dd's book is? Not a clue.

There's no LeStoatMysterieux....
Maybe he'd be a vampire LeStoat?
