Doodlecat's Homepage

Picture of Doodle - a 
black cat

Welcome to Doodlecat, where we enjoy the pleasures of life (with a slight bias towards the outdoors). This page is regularly updated with news and views plus information about any additions or changes to the various parts of the site. It acts as Doodlecat’s Blog too, so the odd rant considered opinion may pop up from time to time.

I would love to be able to say that Doodlecat is all my own work, but it isn’t. Much of the outdoors content is courtesy of the splendid people who participate in the annual TGO Challenge (there is a section entirely devoted to this unique event) and many others.

To help in tracking down that elusive morsel on Doodlecat, the search facility under the title bar above is tailored to help you find it, either on this home page (Doodlecat's Blog) all the rest of the site (Main Site) or – if all else fails - the internet!

So have a rummage around the old cat basket and enjoy your time with us!

A Brexit Joke

A man is sick and tired of hearing politicians droning on about Brexit, Brexit, Brexit on the news, but achieving nothing, so he decides to go for a walk and have a little retail therapy.

In a small antique shop he picks up an oriental oil lamp, smiles to himself and after a quick look around gives it a furtive rub.


To his astonishment a real live genie appears and says, “You have released me from the prison of the lamp. I will now, as tradition demands, grant you three wishes … BUT … whatever you wish for the 650 MPs in the House of Commons will have the same, but doubled.

The man thinks about this for a while, and then says, “I’d like enough to enjoy the rest of my life – say £10 million”.

There’s flash of light and the Genie says, “Check your account”.

The man checks his phone, and sure enough, his current account now has a balance of £10 million. He is delighted, but the genie says, “Remember, every MP now has your wish doubled – they each have £20 million”.

But the man is happy enough, and moves on to wish two – “Now I can afford it, I’d like a Ferrari”.

Another flash of light and the genie says, “A brand new Ferrari 812 waits you in your garage, BUT every MP now has two Ferraris. What is your third and final wish?”

The man thinks for a while, and then slowly begins to smile …

“I’d like to donate a kidney …”
