We sat down with Mr Griffs and spoke to him about his previous camping experience. Knowing that Mr Griffs has always loved the outdoors and that he in fact lived on a farm when he was younger, we certainly didn't expect his reply.
‘I’m all for camping, but I’m not a fan of tents. They always tell you that the tent will fit three people, but you’d be luck to squeeze in two. And at night time you can’t move. You can’t turn around. You have to sleep like a mummy. I tell you what, you’re better off not taking one.’
So we asked Mr Griffs, what if it was raining or snowing? Surely you'd have to take a tent with you?
‘Nowadays, they have these things called huts,' Mr Griffs said. 'Much more comfortable. But if you’d hard pressed, get a sturdy stick and your most loose t-shirt and pitch it like a tent. Why do you think I wear baggy clothes all the time?’
We had no idea whether Mr Griffs was being serious or not (a confusion shared by many) – so best not to try this at home.
All Things Griffs
Mr Griffs leads a peaceful life. Or so he claims to. He lives on a quiet street, Pickle Mouse Crescent, in the idyllic town of Cornville. Yet for some reason, Mr Griffs always manages to find trouble. Or does trouble find him?
