.Pond scum, up close and personal.
I was bemused to find out that 2008 is the United Nations International Year of the Potato.
Now, I have nothing against the potato but how about an international year for the chocolate mousse? Or the dandelions? Or nasal hairs? Or pond scum? Or...
It all seems a little arbitrary.
So I went exploring and it seems that 2008 is also the international year of frogs, sanitation, spaceships, the polar year, inter-cultural dialogue and coral reefs.
In a catch-all clause, 2008 is also the International Year of Planet Earth.
I guess that includes pond scum.
