Scientists are saying that the Tyrannosaurus rex had the most powerful bite of any creature that has ever walked the Earth.
This made me think about how humans find it difficult to bite and tear certain objects in their lives, despite having pretty good teeth and strong jaws.
Here’s a brief list of things I struggle with: the corners of shampoo sachets you get in free magazines, those plastic tags that are attached to clothes that you have to get rid of before you can wear them, the end piece of a stick of garlic bread.
It’s just too tough! Plus the plastic string off any package when I can’t find the scissors!
n My friend bought some gardening gloves the other day.
Now you’d think gardening gloves were the least trendy thing that you could buy but apparently not.
He bought a pair called Weedmasters. Why do we have to give even the most mundane objects, like gardening gloves, a snappy name which makes them sound slightly cool?
My friend is now calling himself ‘The Weedmaster’, which makes him sound like the most pathetic super villain ever!
n Transformers: Age of Extinction has topped the UK box office, taking £11.7m in its first week of release, knocking Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie off the top spot.
The title of the new Transformers film really annoys me. It’s this ‘Age of Extinction’ thing that makes it sound way too pompous and overly dramatic.
Plus it gets worse, because the new Avengers movie is called Avengers: Age of Ultron. Please can we lay off using the ‘Age Of’ suffix?
Besides, Ultron sounds like a washing powder, so I keep thinking The Avengers are going to be fighting a super villain that goes around making clothes dirty.
