Life's little questions - part 1

What does a combine harvester actually combine?
Apparently, harvesting and threshing. Not sure that I am much the wiser. I should have paid more attention at Cogges Farm Museum but where there are pigs and rabbits it is pretty much guaranteed that informative posters will remain unread.

What is the weirdest crossbreed on the British road system?
On the way to Cogges, the bus goes over a crossing which is designated a 'humped toucan'. This presumably means there are also humped zebras (well with all those camels around what do you expect) and, still more intriguingly, humped pelicans!

What would happen if Mr Whippy met Miss Whiplash?
Thankfully we shall never know.
