Real v Fake?

We've been asking what's better - real or fake?

I personally can’t think of anything that’s fake that’s better than the real thing.

If you’ve ever had that vegetarian bacon you’ll probably agree.

Dry skiing – not as good.

Fake fires (especially those DVD ones) no where near as good as the real thing.

And beards – not a chance, we all know Father Christmas looks better with a real beard.

So when Kev brought in his fake mechanical cat and tried to persuade me that it was better than my real ones.

Of course some of Kev’s points were true, the mechanical cat wasn’t leaving presents in anyone else’s garden, bringing home mice or birds, or waiting by the fridge to swipe you with needle like claws when he doesn’t get any ham.

However, you just can’t beat the purring the nudging from the real thing and they don’t need batteries!
