This lorry full of tortoises collided with a van full of terrapins. It was a turtle disaster.

9 Ways to Pimp Your Office
Most of us spend our days in a drab cubicle, with grey walls, grey chairs, grey walls outside those cubicle walls, grey lighting, grey computer, and you probably sit in grey building in your grey suit (or “business casual” derivative). Ahh, whoever thought up office design in the 1980s must have really been of fan of grey and consequently has been the staple of office design since then.
