Don't forget your toothbrush (or your Shetland Pony)

Travelodge, a British hotel chain, recently released its annual list of some of the bizarre items forgotten by its guests. The list includes a bag full of prosthetic limbs, a suitcase of designer Jimmy Choo shoes, a house made out of bread and a Shetland pony named Pudding. What on earth was a pony doing in a hotel room?

Some people leave friends or relatives behind. I suspect that this is sometimes intentional - mothers-in-law can be so annoying. Another family was disappointed that their plan to ditch Mama Rosa's heave-inducing pasta sauce recipe failed yet again.

According to a survey by sex toys and dolls accounted for 30% of items that are left behind. Being a chambermaid must be a real eye opener.

Here's the list:
  • A mother in law called June
  • A Centurion card (Black American Express Card)
  • A miniature Shetland pony called Pudding
  • A Louis Vuitton wallet containing money
  • A prenuptial agreement
