Garfield phones mystery solved after 35 years

Still Waters

A French coastal community has finally cracked the mystery behind the Garfield telephones that have plagued its picturesque beaches for decades.

Since the 1980s, the Iroise coast in Brittany has received a supply of bright orange landline novelty phones shaped like the famous cartoon cat.

Anti-litter campaigners have been collecting fragments of the feline for years as they clean the beaches.

But now, the source of the problem has been found - a lost shipping container.

Not as "bright orange" as they're supposed to be.  They've obviously been through a whale.

i used to use those import beer bottles with the bail and ceramic top, it was the 80s i didnt know shamu might not like it,

a friend whose dad died and was cremated wanted to be scattered in the sea, he was navy, my buddy was kind of like curly from the 3 stooges, we get out on the pier he whips out "dad" its some small sealed black box, he starts trying to open it and gets frustrated beats it on the pier it busts, dad goes everywhere box goes in the drink...

why cant i forget such things?
