My Llovely Llama Llump

Llonely llama, llying llimp and llistless, llacking llove.  Llong lluxurious locks, lleft at this llofty llatitude, llie llike llukewarm llava, lleaching llife and lleaving llegs llike llinguini.  Llet’s llop her lload to a llower llevel, llest she lliquify!


Llovely llenswork, Rachel S.

    Langourous Llamma lays lugubriously latent.

  7. I should definitely be commenting on this entry :-).

  8. Man you guys are so creative………. How do you come up with this stuffs?
    Llol ! <— see wut I did thar?

  9. Mary (the first) says:

    This llama’s lliterary illllustration made me LLOLL !!

  10. I’m imagining someone reading it with the Welsh “ll” instead of the Spanish pronunciation. Anyone standing close by would get covered in spit, and not from the llama!

  11. Also makes a nice throw rug.

  12. Ack, camelid ennui! That’s almost as bad as lagomorph disapproval.

    Lloyd (gotta be her name), wanna come to my house and play Scrabble?

  13. Apathetic alpaca anguishes, absent amorous admirers.

  14. Ah, CO, how I love thee. Where else can we get our Qte served up with alliteration AND Black-Eyed Peas references?

  15. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    Sorry, here I go with the TMI thing again…
    I think that’s the position llady llamas assume for breeding.
    The following llink is rated R…..

  16. Delurking because it needs to be posted!

    here’s a llama
    there’s a llama
    and another little llama
    fuzzy llama
    funny llama
    llama llama

    llama llama
    llama llama
    llama llama

    I was once a treehouse
    I lived in a cake
    but I never saw the way
    the orange slayed the rake
    I was only three years dead
    but it told a tale
    and now listen, little child
    to the safety rail

    did you ever see a llama
    kiss a llama
    on the llama
    llama’s llama
    tastes of llama
    llama llama

    half a llama
    twice the llama
    not a llama
    llama in a car
    alarm a llama

    is this how it’s told now?
    is it all so old?
    is it made of lemon juice?
    now my song is getting thin
    I’ve run out of luck
    time for me to retire now
    and become a duck
    (And this is a Song That Never Ends.)

  17. I llove this llama, her head is very tiny compared to llarge ffurry body. She has a Qt look on her face. May be ssheepish, given pile of llama ppoo over behind the fence.
    *goes out to find llama to hug*

  18. WendyPinNJ says:

    Lucy’s Mommeh–was just reviewing the comments for “Most Blorpiest” (hadn’t been back there in a while), and the answer to your question is “no.” The name Cutter doesn’t mean a thing to me.

    But of course, now I’m REALLY curious as to why you asked in the first place!

    I’m also curious how long it took NTMTOM to come up with all those words with all those “L’s” strung together like that! Impressive.

  19. Mikeyfur says:

    NTMTOM, You raise the bar waaay too high. Very, very clever…Very, very funny!

  20. hummingrose says:

    She’s llanguishing llocked in LL!

  21. And I read this at 1:11. Double vision overload!

  22. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    Look up Wendy Pini & Elfquest. You’ll understand then.

  23. catloveschanel says:

    Llov-er-lly alllll-iteration! Lllooks like llying llama had a Llong Islland Iced Tea…

    maybe a good conditioner, as well.

  24. Kiragirl says:

    It’s a push-me-pullll-you

  25. puddlepeppers says:

    Peeps, who’s the writer of this?
    “The one-L lama, he’s a priest…
    The two-L llama, he’s a beast…
    and I will bet a silk pajama…
    There isn’t any three-L lllama.”

  26. catloveschanel says:

    allegedlly had the LLong Islland Iced tea…

  27. Kristabelle says:

    Llaughing llightheartedly at the llovely llama…

  28. JigSawMan says:

  29. catloveschanel says:

  30. kangaroo (aka anastasia) says:

  31. GingerBean says:

    @Sarah Oooh I just discovered the Llama song a couple weeks ago on Youtube! Giggled my butt off! “have you ever seen a llama kiss a llama on the llama?” hehe.
    Have you seen the variations of it? They have one for Frodo from LOTR that gives me the giggles too.

  32. Katiedid says:

    Quick pour some salt on it before it leaves a slime trail!!!

  33. Lliquid Llama?

  34. hmmm…or Lleglless Llama…

  35. @Sarah – oh no! You realize that’s a particularly difficult earworm to eradicate.

  36. Mary (the first) says:

    @Llucy’s Mommeh, then this must be a LLusty LLascivious LLove-seeking Llady Llama? yes?

  37. Hummingrose-
    I’m sooo glad I’m not the only one thinking of Lamuel!!! (sp?)

  38. charliewabba says:

    llama lloafing.

  39. Llewd and llicentious, too!!

  40. stuck@work says:

    I give the alliteration an A+. A give the editing an even A. 1 point docked for:
    Locks or llocks?

  41. Of course this is from Mike.

  42. I would llike to think that her name is Llisa-Llotte.

    Yea, if it is in alpaca? hey.

  43. Kiragirl says:

    You could be a hacka’
    if you call that an alpaca
    Llooks llike a Llama
    with very llittle drama.

  44. Oh, don’t be such a drama llama.

  45. That is truly a beautiful picture and an equally beautiful picture. Llamas are perfection!

  46. johnnyjohnny says:

    “My lumps, my lumps, my lovely llama lumps.”

  47. lloll!
    i llove llamas, and i llove you, NTMTOM. (why aren’t there Ls in your name?)

  48. I meant to say “an equally beautiful caption.” I was overcome with Llama Llove and got tongue-tied. ::dabs moist eyes::

  49. hummingrose says:

    @Jebica–I think Llama is the only word Dunnett left out. Hooray for a fellow fan!

  50. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    Puddlepeppers — I’m going to guess it’s an Ogden Nash. (He did it for the cash.)

  51. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    Mary (the first)

  52. Llovely llady llama llounges llistlessly llonging for a llissome llothario to llove; llatelly llovable llama-boy llotharios llurk lless, lleaving llovely llady llama llonesome…(whew!)

  53. Paunchie says:

    Llumpkin ~ I feel that way some days

  54. bubbyscranky says:

    Don’t practice your alliteration on me, NTMTOM.

  55. “lleaving llegs llike llinguini…?”

    Hmmm. Yeah, maybe not. Llol! But you get the E for effort. Definitely that.

  56. berthaservant says:

    like any other primitive would….

  57. Anyone else now think that llamas look like the mystics from The Dark Crystal?!

  58. “Anyone else now think that llamas look like the mystics from The Dark Crystal?!”

    Totally! And, since they helped bring about the end of the world in a way, it’s fitting for the Alpaca Lips that they llook llike llamas.

  60. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

    @Sarah, Oh, I do like the way you think. Bizah!

  61. @GingerBean; Hee! I love that song. They have a million, I swear, different versions. It’s nuts. But so much fun. My poor husband might just lose his mind if I log onto youtube to start listening to it right now.

    @Camille; I do, yes, yes I do. It was the first thing that popped into my head when I read all those double L’s. It’s been in my head ever since. I’m blaming NTMTOM for my earworm. I think you can too if you like. *grin*

  62. Selphie le Boffin says:

    It took me a while to find it’s head, I thought it was a fluffy rug.
    I think this is actually a llama and not an alpaca. Do we have any experts to confirm?

  63. @Selphie: It looks more like an alpaca because of the amount of hair on top of the head. And alpacas have more delicate features than llamas; however, for the poetic license, let’s just assume it is a llama!

  64. @Cambridge Rat Mom: Why thank you! T’was the first thing that popped into my head. The only problem is since I don’t know enough of the words to sing aloud, all the hubby gets are very random “Llama, llama, duck”s.

  65. Llove the title!

  66. BouvieGal says:

    *looks at picture*
    *snorts* *laughs*
    *laughs louder*
    oops! gotta pee!
    *runs to ladies’ room*

    Shame on you, NTMTOM. You made me pull a “Fergie”!

  67. lumpa lazy lama, that’s what.

  68. Bookkeeper.

  70. puddlepeppers says:

    catloveschanel and Argyle Donkeypants–Thanks!!!

  71. let’s ‘ave a light ladle of llama with leek and lavender loaf, please – lord lloyd lichtenstein

  72. BabyOpossum says:

    Do you think we could get Tom Brokaw to narrate this post? Or maybe Harry Shearer as Tom Brokaw? Because I think that needs to happen.

  75. jackie31337 says:

    ding Oh, don’t be such a drama llama.

    Drama Llama is the name my 6-year-old spontaneously gave to her stuffed llama after figuring out how rhyming works. 🙂

    Also, the lower-case l vs upper-case I thing is messing with my head in this post.

  76. Starlinguk says:

    So. This is a Wellsh Llama, no?

    (comfoosed? Terry Pratchett’s Wellsh peoplle all tallk with two lls)

  77. Hover text said it had no Alpaca jokes 😦


    A CHRISTIAN: You have two alpacas. You keep one and give one to your neighbor.

    A COMMUNIST: You have two alpacas. The government seizes both and provides you with fleece.

    A FASCIST: You have two alpacas. The government seizes both and sells you the fleece. You join the underground and start a campaign of sabotage.

    A REPUBLICAN: You have two alpacas. Your neighbor has none. So what?

    A DEMOCRAT: You have two alpacas. Your neighbor has none. You feel guilty for being successful. You vote people into office who tax your alpacas, forcing you to sell one to raise money to pay the tax. The people you voted for then take the tax money and buy an alpaca and give it to your neighbor. You feel righteous.

    DEMOCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two alpacas. The government taxes you to the point you have to sell both to support a man in a foreign country who has only one alpaca, which was a gift from your government.

    CAPITALISM, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two alpacas. You sell one, buy a stud, and build a herd of alpacas.

    BUREAUCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two alpacas. The government takes them both, shoots one, shears the other, pays you for the fleece, then composts the fleece.

    AN AMERICAN FARM: You have two alpacas. You sell one, and force the other to produce the fleece of four alpacas. You are surprised when the alpaca drops dead.

    A FRENCH FARM: You have two alpacas. You go on strike because you
    Want three alpacas.

    A JAPANESE FARM: You have two alpacas. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary alpaca and produce twenty times the fleece.

    A GERMAN FARM: You have two alpacas. You reengineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and shear themselves.

    AN ITALIAN FARM: You have two alpacas but you don’t know where they are. You break for lunch.

    AN INDIAN FARM: You have two alpacas. You worship them.

    A RUSSIAN FARM: You have two alpacas. You count them and learn you have five alpacas. You count them again and learn you have 42 alpacas. You count them again and learn you have 12 alpacas. You stop counting alpacas and open another bottle of vodka.

  78. Zoe — made me laugh out loud! Thanks! 🙂

  79. ZOE!!!! I LOVE YOU!

  80. Lerrinus says:

    Zoe, you rock! 😀

  81. Llama Lloaf!

  82. claudemarie says:

    LMAO Zoe!

  83. Noelle (the First) says:

    Zoe, thanks for the laugh! Oh, and pass the vodka!

  84. Zoe, you forgot…

    AN IRISH FARM: You have 2 alpacas. You use the fleece to make kilts so they cannot hear your zipper… 😉

    (FYI, I’m Irish, so I’m allowed to say this…)

    [Er, OK… so, then, what do they do on Scottish farms? 😐 – Ed.]
