I may be confused, but isn't a "Polaroid PoGo" a small printer that you can use with your mobile phone?

As opposed to the famous, but now thing-of-the-past Polaroid Instant Camera?

Not half as confused as I was when I first saw the recommendation. But you may well be right. However, I'm very grateful to Hugh for his advice, and have made proper note of his observation that Pogos may go both up and down. I'm also resisting the temptation like mad ...

Were it possible, `twould be one or t`other...I think :?
Not sure if it`s possible to:
'Boggle to the left'
'Boggle to the right'

So, Googling, 'boggle'...see what turned up. Weird or wot!? :shock: http://word-games.pogo.com/games/boggle-bash

What actually happens when the mind boggles? Does it swell up, or look like those balls you squeeze through a net to make disgusting brain bubbles?

According to my Shorter Oxford Dictionary, boggle is an intransitive verb, and it means "hesitate, demur, *at* or *about*; equivocate; be startled or baffled". So I expect it makes disgusting bubbles.

Squeezing balls through nets? Hens teeth! And you look so sweet and innocent on your web site. Armour and ordnance required for any further visits methinks. *body and mind now achieving shivering / boggling synchronicity*

Or the imbibing of copious amounts of, 'Islay water' and/or, 'Jura juice', :(
There`s just no end to it, is there Judders? :shock:

I shudder to think of the mental image that YOU had in your head, but what I was thinking of was this:

from http://www.find-me-a-gift.co.uk/squishy-mesh-ball.html

We had one just like it until a child visitor decided to find out if there was a squishing "limit". There was. It involved some revolting yellow stuff and what can be best described as constant "oozing". The oozing would dry to a crust, but a re-squeeze would bring upon more oozing. Until I laid it to rest in the rubbish bin.

Handy for keeping abreast of developments Vic. Would it be a tennis ball as viewed through the bottom of a recently depleted Jameson's bottle?

Maybe I WAS less than careful about what OTHER products were living with the squishy balls!

The mind doth GOOGLE! And it's usually a mistake.

And whatever you do, DON'T CLICK THE WET AND WILD CATEGORY!

Er... I hate to admit this Vic, but in these 'ere parts you can get the real thing considerably cheaper. Anecdotal evidence suggests the same applies in Morecambe, and all Essex new towns. :roll:
