The dog likes cucumber?
Sorry, there is no way any self respecting canine would eat THAT!

(OK, wrong nationality, and I don't think the "inflatable" bit would help (except with ammunition storage), but close...)
Unfortunately I can't find anything for the 88mm Flak gun except in 1:35 scale
Thank you, yes, the one with glue stains and the Tamiya catalogue in the pocket please...
I'm just away to renew my MCT (15+ years) and am now having serious doubts about it.
Almost all their certifications are "cloud" and training and certification for the on-prem systems seems almost non-existent (current versions of Exchange, SharePoint and even Server 2019 gone, SQL Server hanging on, but only just...). Even Desktop OSes seem to have merged into "Microsoft 365". And of course older products are "no longer relevant" and certs and training courses are dropped too.
Maybe the market share is diminishing, but how much work does it take to update exams and courses to the new version, or even to keep older versions alive on the grounds they are still largely relevant?
... with less context and labelling than an academic historian might have enjoyed
So just like pretty much every major museum, at least in the UK, then.
I took my family to the IWM and the Science Museum a few years ago, wanting to revisit childhood memories of lots and lots of information. Instead got minimal labelling, staff who knew nothing and gave me a total blank when I asked where I could find out more ("Try Google" was the standard staff response).
Honourable mention to the RAF museum, who still had real information including brief service histories, and links to find out more - a lot more - online.

"Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of – wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air....
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.
Where never lark, or even eagle flew —
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
– Put out my hand, and touched the face of God."
Working for an oil company meant a constant battle with the spam filters which,for some unknown reason, didn't like terms like "twelve inch pipe" (especially when combined with "drill"). Most were solved, but I could never get the filter to accept the term "hole expanders" which I was assured was perfectly legal, decent, honest and truthful in the industry.
Another story involves a manager in India who managed to send a set of (mindbleach still needed) VERY hairy images to the whole organisation list, not his intended recipient!
My wife tells me that when she was young, she had (musical) keyboard lessons inflicted on her regularly* She got fed up with them, so cut the power cable with a convenient pair of scissors**, then blamed it on the cat. Her Mum believed her, and lessons were cancelled, but when her Dad found out, he looked at the cable and pointed out that cats do not, as a rule, cleanly bite through a wire. Oops!
*I suspect they were also inflicted on the teacher, but at least they were paid for it!
**How some form of electric shock was avoided is beyond me.
Icon: Obviously Paris is not quite as good looking....
Are foxes attracted only to Comp Sci students, or have other disciplines been involved to (Enquiring Minds etc...)
If the former, is it down to behaviour of that student cohort, or is there something special about them the foxes find attractive (regular users of Mozilla browsers, perhaps?).
If the latter, we need a full set of data - Student Subject, circumstances of bite, result....
There should be at least a PhD in it somewhere!
