Reports are coming in of a previously unknown, deadly threat to sleepy Hungarian bats: that of being killed by tits. The shock news comes courtesy of Germany's Max Planck Institute for Ornithology, where boffins have been working with "colleagues in a cave in Hungary". Needless to say, we speak here not of any scenario involving …
"Tits are not the same as Boobies"
Quite correct, tits are woodland birds, boobies are a type of seabird related to the gannet.
Even Paris knows that!
To follow on from "Tits are not the same as Boobies", one should also be careful not to attempt to introduce a shag to an old bat.
Hmm sounds like an easy solution...
Add bird feeders around the caves - problem solved ;)
Should our bat lover's worry
as we also have Parus major in UK
" the "Great Tits" in question here are peckish birds - of the same ingenious family as the renowned cream-snaffling Blue Tits of old Blighty "
There seems to be an implication here that Great Tits are not found in Britain. They are, of course, very common in the UK.
Re: In addition...
Yes, but a Shagbat is the same thing as a Walrus when it comes to things that fly. Just to add to the confusion....
You can find Great Tits anywhere! *
* If you look.
"Needless to say, we speak here not of any scenario involving carelessly-roosting chiropterine boudoir intruders inadvertently stifled by human female tophamper in a comedo-tragic cleavage mishap or similar. Rather, the "Great Tits" in question here are peckish birds - of the same ingenious family as the renowned cream-snaffling Blue Tits of old Blighty."
I did chuckle at this. Does sound like you write for Top Gear or something.
Genius at work
comedo-tragic cleavage mishap
For a minute there I thought this was going to be about Tits of Death:

Perhaps a Photo of Carlsbad Cavern's Chinese Hat Formation Would be appropriate Here...

Wheres the Boobies Icon??
Suspected as much
Personally unsurprised to find that "the "Great Tits" in question here are peckish birds", given the non-lethal outcome detailed here: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/1398528/Woman-finds-a-baby-bat-in-her-bra.html
Tits like Coconuts - Perfectly acceptable.
Tits like Bats - No thank you.
Paris - Because I'm sure she could point out a man eating beaver.
Hungarians are not the only victims
Here in Wales we've also been victims of Great Tits - the weather brought them out in droves (is that the term - a drove of Tits?) - the beaches on Saturday around Barmouth were inundated with them. According to local news agencies, large numbers of males had to be treated for shock when a coachload of Great Tits hit the beach. Quotes like "you could have your eye out with them" were heard from temorarily blinded husbands as they were led away from the beach by their wives. I understand the female coach party was from Essex but that has yet to be confirmed.
No point in asking for pictures or a Playmobil reconstruction then.

"Great Tits (Parus major)"
Because someone's got to ask.
Introduce them to topless dancing...
They can make more money that way, and eat a whole lot better.
"a drove of Tits?"
no - it's "a twittering of tits"
(not to be confused with "a tittering of twits)
i thought the only tits in Wales
was those who pull you over :)
its a big horn
This article makes no sense
Hungarian dictionary, please! My hovercraft is full of eels.
Indeed. I have a pair of them in front of me as i type.
she knows why
No "tit for bat" jokes?
Err, putting 'IT' in 'tITs'?
"Great Tits" "peckish birds" "cream-snaffling" "Tits of old Blighty "
Still strugling with a collective noun for many great tits. However a single pair would have to be a flash?
The collective would be "a temblor of tits," naturally. Or unnaturally. Either way.
not that uncommon
Man eating tits can be found in many clubs up and down the country.
In some you can even find men eating tits.
So I've heard.
