Roald Dahl stories (1959)
This is the story of George the vicar who is not exactly confident around women. A long story, including a rat experiment which is supposed to show something about the behaviour of the sexes.
This one was just too weird, even for me - enough said.
The Champion of the World
Here we meet the mechanics Gordon and Claud who have a nightly hobby: poaching pheasants. They come up with a marvelous plan, including some raisins, a perambulator and nearly two hundred pheasants.
A hilarious short story.

Dorte - I'm so glad you've taken the time to share all of these stories. I do like Roald Dahl's work :-). But I agree, Georgy Porgy does sound a little strange...
I had not heard of these before so thanks for sharing them even though they sound a little too strange for my taste.
Margot: there are probably readers out there who love Georgy Porgy - I just can´t imagine who would ;D
Tracy: well, the one about the pheasants would probably make you laugh.
My Dahl book arrived yesterday. It's a "best of" collection, so I'll have to check and see if any of these are in it.
I have other things on my plate before that, though.... like a couple of books I've recently gotten from Smashwords.
Kelly: you mustn´t wind me up right before bedtime! ;)
Sounds like an interesting collection. But if there's a rat experiment involved, I think I'll pass on GEORGY PORGY.
Thoughts in Progress
Hmm, a strange Dahl book, that seems unusual... ;)
Thanks for showcasing it.
Mason: I don´t mind literary rats, I just didn´t get the point of the story :D
Clarissa: apart from this story, they ranged from good to excellent.
