Misidentifications of the day

Wmm remembers seeing a red plastic bag in central London yesterday being pushed gently by the breeze over the curb and his mind imagined it to be a blood drenched medium sized squid that was crawling from the pavement into a drain. Some months ago a black larger plastic bag on the road being inflated by the breeze, he imagined to be a cow lying on its side, and some other plastic bags made him think of some other animals in places that they should not have been.
NB:Wmm acknowledges that he saw a program on TV about people catching giant squids to examine their camouflaging ability recently

Mental image of the day

Wmm wants it to be understood that when he sees a woodpigeon pecking away on breadcrumbs on the backgarden patio, he starts to imagine a centipede made up from woodpigeons. He has also drawn a sketch to help people to imagine what he is mentally perceiving
Woodpigeon centipede ?

Cinema assumption of the day

I have seen the possible connection between the new James Bond movie called Skyfall and the Chickylicky/HennyPenny story and noticed one or two people on Twitter have made the connection, however I wonder if they'll change Miss Moneypenny into Miss HennyPenny.

Misreading of the day

1. Wmm misread the BBC News Facebook headline "LIVE: Follow the latest news as Greek Prime Minister Papandreou heads to the country's president to offer his resignation." as "Prime Minister Papandreou heads off to the country to release his anger"
2. Wmm misread the BBC News headline "Gaddafi son Saif 'trying to flee' " as "Gaddafi's son is safe training a flea circus"
