I don't know about communication, but they definitely don't have any road sense.

Maybe we haven't had that conversation with them yet.

TheSwearingBear - 16 Dec 2020 03:03:56 (#3 of 43)

Next time I hit one I'll have a stern word.

So now the animal behaviour scientists are spotlighting kangaroos?

Eligelis - 16 Dec 2020 07:18:54 (#5 of 43)

Apperantly they are just as good as going through mazes as nermatode worms

What's that, Skip? The former UK has fallen down the old Brexit well? But there's no point us following you because it's dead?

This is gonna be a short episode with a disappointing narrative arc, Skip. Go find some sheep rustlers.

I always feel kangaroos are untrustworthy creatures.

kvelertak - 16 Dec 2020 14:39:12 (#8 of 43)

Never buy from one on the doorstep, Fleur.

If a kangaroo tries a confidence trick on you just remind him how good he tastes.

Rather like venison, I gather.

TheSwearingBear - 16 Dec 2020 14:43:46 (#10 of 43)

Not in my experience.

ReverendBlueJeans - 16 Dec 2020 14:54:24 (#11 of 43)

Let's hear it, then.

Dog tucker ;-)

kvelertak - 16 Dec 2020 15:20:31 (#13 of 43)

I am having difficulty conceiving of a kangaroo seeming either trustworthy or untrustworthy, like cats and unlike dogs they don't appear to have the emotional range. Is it bland inscrutability that people object to?

AdonisBlue - 16 Dec 2020 15:52:02 (#14 of 43)

They look like right thugs, Brexiteersthe lot of em.

ReverendBlueJeans - 16 Dec 2020 15:56:39 (#15 of 43)

CATS DON'T HAVE AN EMOTIONAL RANGE?????!!!???

Kvel, you are a MONSTER and worse than ten thousand twenty-foot-tall Hitlers!

browserbutton - 16 Dec 2020 16:03:40 (#16 of 43)

Don't say: "OK boomer."

It will rip your innards out with its deadly ripping feet.

Agaliareptthehalls - 16 Dec 2020 16:07:59 (#17 of 43)

like cats....they don't appear to have the emotional range.

</music stops>

You aint from round these here parts is ya feller?

kvelertak - 16 Dec 2020 16:10:44 (#18 of 43)

Ok. Fine. Tell us you how you tell apart a trustworthy cat from an untrustworthy cat. It might be up to no good, but it doesn't express that, let alone shame.

AdonisBlue - 16 Dec 2020 16:11:31 (#19 of 43)

What do you need to trust a cat with?

frantastic - 16 Dec 2020 16:12:10 (#20 of 43)

Do we have to learn all this kangaroo stuff as part of our Australia type Brexit non-deal?
