How to Avoid a Wombat’s Bum

How to Avoid a Wombat’s Bum

Did you know THAT:

  • The first ready-to-eat breakfast cereal was Shredded Wheat in 1893 (it beat Kellogg’s Corn Flakes by just five years).
  • Everton were the first British football club to introduce a stripe down the side of their shorts.
  • The word DUDE was coined by Oscar Wilde and his friends. It is a combination of the words ‘duds’ and ‘attitude’.

Well you do now!

* Don’t chase it! Wombats can run up to 25 miles per hour and stop dead in half a stride. They kill their predators this way – the predator runs into the wombat’s bum-bone and smashes its face.

See inside…
