Flooks

No-one really knows where the Flook originated. Some say it was the dark jungles of Borneo, some the splendid wastes of the Mongolian steppe. I found my first Flook in the mundane confines of a small terraced house in Norwich, deep in the winter of 1994/5. He was lurking between the pages of a gloomy and mysterious book. During that long, dark and difficult winter, we became somewhat wary friends... Mr Flook
Train of Flooks That first Flook was a magnificent beast, large, colourful and fully grown (or so I thought). He was a bit of a beast, and we had to learn respect for each other. Later, I found that the genus contains specimens of many sizes and many, many types. The Flook is a master of diguise, sometimes appearing as a purring cat or tail-wagging dog, sometimes as a fierce dragon or deceptively flighty penguin, perhaps as a scarecrow or an elephant, unicorn or pig, old man or eunuch.....
And they do like hanging around in groups....
