Meet Winifred Whelan, who was threatened in her home by a man brandishing a 10-inch knife. She grabbed a larger carving knife from her kitchen, shoved it at the heroic intruder’s belly and quoted the famous words from Crocodile Dundee “That’s not a knife, this is a knife!”
This is the sort of thing that makes me look in my kitchen drawers. Somewhere under the balls of string, paper bags, loose chopsticks, old dry- cleaning dockets and takeaway menus, there may be a knife. I’m sure that bus tickets breed in my kitchen drawers, there’s no other explanation for their presence in such great numbers. And who put a packet of mothballs in there?
