Lose yourself in the pleasure of life's unexpected twists and turns. Just like Harry Langdon in Frank Capra's The Strong Man, we often find ourselves on a journey that takes us to unimaginable places. Channel Isles Squid reminds us that even the smallest creatures can engage in fierce competition, just like Jason and his Argonauts battling for glory. But amidst all this excitement, let's not forget about the difficulties of dieting – it can be a real challenge. Captain Scott's team experienced their own struggle as they nearly lost their sledge through a treacherous snow bridge. In cartoons like The Antichrist and Close Formation during WW1, we see how losing is sometimes inevitable but refusing to lose becomes our greatest strength. So why not take inspiration from the red squirrel playing table tennis? Embrace life with determination and resilience because every loss brings an opportunity for growth.
