Fox on a hot London roof trends on Twit­ter

Iran Daily - - Entertainment -

Pic­tures of a ‘sus­pi­ciously re­laxed’ fox sun­bathing on a roof in London have be­come a trend­ing mo­ment on Twit­ter. The wily vulpine crept up a fire es­cape onto a rooftop near Fins­bury Park be­fore set­tling on a blan­ket to en­joy the evening sun, BBC wrote.

Ac­tor Tom Bell said he took the first ten­ta­tive pic­tures of the fox through his kitchen win­dow to avoid scar­ing it.

But in the end he was up close and said: “We prob­a­bly could have pet­ted it, it was so un­fazed by us.”

Pic­tures of the ur­ban fox have been shared tens of thou­sands of times by an­i­mal lovers, with many of them tweet­ing their own sim­i­lar ex­pe­ri­ences us­ing #roof­fox.

The build­ing is an old ware­house re­pur­posed for ac­com­mo­da­tion and the an­i­mal climbed up two storeys to bask in the evening sun­shine. A woman walked into the down­town wel­fare of­fice, trailed by 15 kids.

“Wow,” the so­cial worker ex­claimed, “are they all yours?”

“Yep they are all mine,” the flus­tered momma sighed, hav­ing heard that ques­tion a thou­sand times be­fore. She said, “Sit down Leroy.”

All the chil­dren rushed to find seats.

“Well,” said the so­cial worker, “then you must be here to sign up. I’ll need all your chil­dren’s names.”

“This one’s my old­est — he is Leroy.” “OK, and who’s next?” “Well, this one he is Leroy, also.”

The so­cial worker raised an eye­brow but con­tin­ued. One by one, through the old­est four, all boys, all named Leroy.

Then she is in­tro­duced to the el­dest girl, named Leighroy!

“All right,” said the case­worker. “I’m see­ing a pat­tern here. Are they all named Leroy?”

Their momma replied, “Well, yes it makes it eas­ier. When it is time to get them out of bed and ready for school, I yell, ‘Leroy!’ and when it’s time for din­ner, I just yell ‘Leroy’ and they all come.”

And if I need to stop the kid who’s run­ning into the street, I just yell Leroy and all of them stop. It’s the smartest idea I ever had, nam­ing them all Leroy.”

The so­cial worker thought this over for a bit, then wrin­kled her fore­head and said ten­ta­tively, “But what if you just want one kid to come, and not the whole bunch?”
