DON’T FORGET THE UNICORNS THIS TIME!

From THE TELEGRAPH:

A full-scale replica of Noah's Ark has opened its doors to the public under stormy skies in the Netherlands. The ark comes in at a whopping 130 metres (427 feet) long, 29 metres (95 feet) across and 23 metres (75 feet) high. It features life-sized displays of animals, including posed sculptures of tigers, giraffe, an elephant and bison. There are also some live animals aboard, including parakeets, pheasants, peacocks and rabbits.

The ark's creator, Johan Huibers, said the opening realised his 20-year dream to educate people about history and faith.

I'm sure the rabbits can be relied upon to go forth and multiply.

  1. Clever title, Mad One. If it’s not too much trouble, I’d like to have seen a pterodactyl or two, and I don’t mean just on Jonny Quest.

  2. Young Johan, an ark he did make
    To convince us the Bible’s not fake
    But his beasts aren’t so real
    Lest their stink make you squeal
    (There are some facts we just cannot take).

    • Boaz FTW!

      [Just the other day on the radio, I heard a report from a space shuttle astronaut. Seems astronauts lose most of their sense of smell in space . . . but when the shuttle lands, and the ground crew comes service it, the presence of the Great Unwashed lingers: Peeeeeeeeuuuuuuwwww! :-X]
