Diary - 5 best literacy howlers

26th February 2010 at 00:00

1. It is very noisy at night for me because we live above a pube.

2. I am going to be a scientologist because I am clever at science.

3. On Sunday Dad filmed me falling into the pond by accident. We are sending it to You've Been Farmed.

4. We learnt about Africa. I would like to see the wild breasts roaming the plane.

5. When my big sister played Goldilocks I had to be a little bare.
