During our trip out to Blackpool at the weekend we went inside the famous Coral Amusements. My mum was desperate to play the racehorse game that we played on day trips when I was in my teens and she was excited to find one right in the corner…
Fifteen minutes and about £15.00 later, both my mum and I had won several times and were given a choice of cuddly toys as prizes. As she wanted some to give to her beloved dogs when we got home, she chose a large and a small Om Nom from Cut the Rope.
It was then that we realised that we would have to carry the bloody things around for the rest of the day. Sh*t.
Luckily, the smaller one fit in my handbag, but the big one was so huge that my mum had no choice but to carry it round by its antennae. I found it hilarious, and she was quite self conscious about it after a while, particularly when children started to point it out.
“I feel like I’m carrying it by it’s willy!’ she kept saying.
And thus their names were born: Big Willy and Little Willy.
Throughout the day, Big Willy had several adventures…
Even Little Willy joined in the fun at one point:
When we finally got home (after a two hour journey took three and a half hours), Big Willy met Max, my mum’s springer spaniel. Big Willy liked Max very much.
However, it wasn’t reciprocated, and their brief relationship was over in a flash as he was shredded over the floor before moving onto Little Willy.
Goodbye Big Willy. Goodbye Little Willy. It’s been emotional…

All that, then shredded!
I know! I said to mum that we could have just bought them a toy from Poundland, but she was adamant that she wanted to take them home… Never mind haha! It took Max less than 10 minutes to destroy them both!
But we would have missed a great laugh! Thanks
Haha! You’re welcome! Glad it made you smile!
How funny! My son once won an enormous stuffed snake on a school band trip. It had its own seat on the bus- and I was not happy to see it when I saw him get off the bus with it.
My dog considers it her duty to take apart all stuffed toys and return them to their original unconstructed pieces. 🙂
Haha! We did that too, often returning home with various random things we had won. Glad your dog is the same and it isn’t just Max that has stuffed toy issues haha!
I didn’t see that ending coming! Yikes! 😀
Haha! Bye bye Willy!
Aww poor Willy, he was so cute!! Although Max wins on cuteness so I guess it was his duty to destroy any cute competitors. Great post!
Thank you! I agree – one look into that cute little face and he can have anything he wants… And he knows it!
Oh, no, your poor mum! They just don’t make cuddly toys the way they used to 🙂
She’s yet to find a toy that Max can’t destroy in five minutes… She didn’t mind though – that’s what she expected him to do.
I’ve had bronchitis for a week and this is the first thing that’s made me laugh. Thank you.
Oh no! Feel better soon my lovely! Glad it made you laugh though!
Actually laughing out loud… 🙂
Haha! I’m glad it made you laugh. I don’t think Big Willy found it funny though 😉
Great story! The Willys are really cute creatures.
Haha! I’ve never talked about Willy’s so much in one day!
Haha, oh dear bye bye big willy – here’s a song for you that’s rather apt…https://youtu.be/VDbUBN99xvc
You’re so like me – there’s a song for everything. I really annoy the Bloke when I sing sentences to him…
I’m sure I did a post about that a while back. I’ll need to check

Ouch. Poor Om Nom.
Ah well, at least it sounds like he/they had an adventurous day before meeting their untimely demise.
Haha! Absolutely – almost felt sorry for them really!
HaHa! That was a fantastic story. Fancy carrying it around all day by the nethers only to have the dog ungratefully rip it to bits!!! 🙂
Haha! I know – Big Willy must have felt so violated during the day! She knew that’s what Max would do, and I told her that we should have got something from Poundland for him to shred instead, but she wasn’t having any of it!
Ha ha! It is funny though. Poor big Willy 🙂
