Barn Owl

An episode not to be missed! The attraction of the century! It’s eyes will stare into your very heart and twist you to its own evil’s bidding as you slowly lose what humanity you have left, staring into the soulless abyss of this creature’s widening gaze…

It’s the barn owl!

On top of the alien-faced abomination I’m reviewing today, there’s also a new regime as Intelligence is out and Evolution is in! I didn’t mean for that to sound as controversial as it does, but come in and give a listen to find out what in the stupid f*** I’m talking about. Will the barn owl prove to be the most badass animal yet? More badass than a mammal with flippers and the ‘Dark Knights of the Ocean’? The answer may shock you. If you’re pregnant I wouldn’t even listen.
