I was browsing the news a while ago and among all the doom and gloom, there was one headline that really made me chuckle…
“US police detain giant tortoise after brief chase”
A brief chase?!
Apparently, a giant tortoise who goes by the name of Clark, gave the police a run for their money through the streets of Los Angeles.
Moving at astonishing speeds of 1mph, Clark attempted his great escape but was recaptured by two officers and reunited with his owners.
My all-time favourite quote from this article was “The tortoise did try to make a run for it, but our officers are pretty fast!”
Oh right! So it’s good to know that the streets of Los Angeles are protected from the likes of such reptiles. Rest assured, if Godzilla rears his head, the police have got it covered… although he might be slightly faster than Clark of course!
Only in America I hear you say!
Still, it was nice to read something that wasn’t related to war, death or destruction.
Are there any news stories you’ve read recently that made you smile and lifted your spirits? If so, I’d love to see them!
