Are the H1N1 shots ready yet!?

This thing is really getting in the way of my alfalfa nomming.


Des M., you might want to try an apple a day, as a precaution.



  1. Lamb-choo?
    God baaaaaaaless you!

  2. Queen of Dork says:

    How funny and weird! I wonder why he’s wearing that mask? Maybe he’s Dr. Lamb and is prepping for surgery in the operating suite. STAT!

  3. No, I think he’s going to assist Dr. Lipschwitz.

  4. Queen of Dork says:

    Dr. Lipschwitz, Dr. Lamb – to the surgery suite…STAT!

  5. Queen of Dork says:

    Theresa: Will you please sing the brocoli song for us one more time? Pleeeaasseee?

  6. Those eyes!

  7. Queen of Dork- did you have to say ‘Please’? I bet you didn’t
    Take it away, Theresa……….
    Dr. Lipschwitz must be awfully busy these days, I couldn’t even get the office to answer! Cough, cough, wheeze, hack, hack…..

  8. DaytimeDeb says:

    Yeah, jury is out on whether this type of mask will help you avoid catching the swine flu. I wonder if lambie is on a diet? I could have used a mask a few moments ago, maybe it would have stopped me from eating a Lava Cake from Trader Joes, topped with vanilla bean ice cream. I wish something had stopped me!

  9. Queen of Dork says:

    Katrina: I think I had it. It was terrible but my body fought it off. I think you will as well recover. I don’t know who you are or where you live but I send the most glorious prayers and healing vibes to you!

  10. *squirt squirt* Anti-bacterial lamb sanitizer.

  11. Queen of Dork says:

    The Swine! It’s like that Stephen King novel, The Stand. Only it’s really not that bad.

  12. QofD, don’t you mean “that baaaaaaad”?

  13. earlybird1 says:

    Is it just me, or do sheep eyes look weird? That horizontal pupil just weirds me out. It’s like a sideways cat eye.

  14. Q o fD-mine was lung infection caused by God knows what- those thoughts of yours have permeated my entire being and I am in great shape! THANKS!

    I send them on to everyone else who needs them now! MWAH! (Dinah Shore style) If you don’t know who Dinah Shore is, m, well, a movie and TV star of the 50’s.

  15. …huh…even lambs will put up with weird stuff humans do to them.

  16. Von Zeppelin says:

    Katrina–“See the USA in your Chevrolay. . . ” (ancient geezer smacks his gums reminiscently)

  17. Queen of Dork says:

    Von Zep: Will you please sing us a song?

    *grabs teddy bear in anticipation*

  18. Von Zeppelin says:

    Hmmmm. Let’s see. Something appropriate to this picture. . .
    (sprays throat with atomizer)
    (adjusts white bow tie on formal suit)
    (vocalizes) Mimimimimimimi. . .
    (nods imperiously to conductor)
    (steps up to music stand)
    (draws deep breath)
    (sings in powerful basso profundo, reaching to the farthest balconies of Carnegie hall)
    “Mary had a little lamb. . .”

  19. LOL at Von Z.

    Sheer adorableness

    (Said in Sheepish Voice)

  20. Wow, VZ, I haven’t thought about those ads in an eternity! And bravo on your stirring rendition of the classic art song, “Mary had a little lamb.”

    But seriously, folks – was the mask on Mr. Sheepers a joke, or is there some weird backstory here…?

  21. 1) For Queenie and Katrina:

    2) For VonZep, I was thinking something like this: FF to 3:00 minutes. 😀

  22. Oh drat again. 😥

  23. Queen of Dork says:

    VonZ : Yay!!!
    Theresa: Yay!!!

  24. Theresa that is awesome! Thanks so much for introducing me to Willie. What a fantastic film!

  25. ROFL@ A lamb, lamb….

    I thought “What’s Meg getting at?”

    Then the hovertext in the 2nd pic had me LOLing.


  26. Queen of Dork says:

    My daughter just got home and we had a songfest. We were singing that song from Dream Girls. At first when she told me she had just watched Dream Girls, I was all “Annnnnnnnndddd Iiiiiiiiiii(e)iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii, Willll always, (gasp)lovvveee youuuuuu! But then she schooled me and told me that the Dream Girls song goes, “And I am tellliiiinnnggg you! YOU’RE not goooiiiinnngggg!” (etc).

  27. AmyJ: he put it on because he was going to visit the pigs, obvy.

  28. resriechan says:

    @ VonZepp:

    while I”m quite late to this illustrious recital, might I forward my congratulations to you on your glorious premier of “La Mary” ???

    Bravo!! Bravo!!

    (& nice throat-clearing technique, there ! THAT really brought the whole presentation to ne plus ultra …)

  29. Queen of Dork says:

    Resrie: I KNOW! Wasn’t that awesome?! I gave VonZ a standing ovation for that. And Theresa with the broccoli song. My goddness!

  30. Von Zeppelin says:

    Thank you, dear ladies, thank you. You are most kind. (bows repeatedly, wipes brow with large silk handkerchief)

  31. Queen of Dork says:

    VonZ: There will be an after performance gala at the Russian Tea Room.

  32. Von Zeppelin says:

    QoD, I shall be there with my entourage (we’ll save you a seat). We’ll be sipping champagne waiting for the early editions of the papers with the reviews.

  33. Queen of Dork says:

    VonZ: I’m sure the critics will give you strong praises. (I like Ceasar Salad, please and thank you).

  34. Bring on the samovar!!!

  35. Queen of Dork says:

    I, for some unkown reason, have the ABCDEFG song stuck in my head. 😦

  36. Resriechan says:

    VZ: Pray do tell. The Fashion Mavens MUST know.
    By which Expensive Designer House is your elegant handkerchief released????
    Chanel, p’rhaps???

  37. Resriechan says:

    (what’s a samovar? Isn’t that a sword?
    I’m too lazy just now to go over to a dictionary.)

    [Think more Russian & less Japanese. – Ed.]

  38. Von Zeppelin says:

    Resriechan, I have the silk handkerchiefs made up for me by an ancient Chinese crone in Singapore. She has her own breed of mutant silkworms on the mulberry trees in the back garden, which she smuggled out of China (the silkworms, not the trees or the garden). She is an old friend of the family–she and Grandpa Von Zeppelin were spies in the Legation Quarter in Beijing back in the 1890s. There have always been rumors in the family circle of a passionate affair.

  39. Queen of Dork says:

    VonZep: I wish I could see your garden. I’m hoping for the best for us all. I have, in my yard, a very ancient relic of the World War II flying plane that shot and took out half the Nazis in Germany. Crap. I’ll probably get in trouble with the Eds for saying this as well. There will be a “NOT APPROPRIATE” thing or something on this post in 15 seconds or so. Or they’ll probably delete the whole entire thing. Can you tell I’m slightly miffed?

  40. Von Zeppelin says:

    QoD, please take a deep breath. Have a glass of wine. I have been busy with the (much less interesting) real world most of the afternoon, and don’t have any idea what the whole moderated/deleted comment thing was all about. Whatever happened, you are among friends here. Weren’t we just having Caesar Salad at the Russian Tea Room?

    What kind of World War II plane? Aviation history is one of my specialties. Even the history that doesn’t relate to Zeppelins.

  41. Queen of Dork says:

    VonZep: Breathing very deeply. But if you go back in the threads you’ll see how I was “comment moderated” or some such thing when I didn’t even say anything bad. Comment moderated or something. And I was mostly trying to stick up for CO so that kind of made me angry. However, I’m completely over it now.

    You’re interested in WWII planes? Wow!

  42. Von Zeppelin says:

    That moderated/deleted thing has happened to me on CO and other places. I can’t speak for the Mighty Theo, but sometimes things we intend as good, supportive, humorous, or otherwise laudable sound otherwise. We move on, Q. We move on.

    Have somebody give you a hug. Is your cat still broken? Maybe he/she is ready for some purringlaptime.

    Yeah, old airplanes. Love ’em. The Countess Von Zeppelin becomes very weary with my learned commentary tracks on the inaccuracy of old movies featuring propellers and stuff.

  43. Queen of Dork says:

    VonZep: Planes or no planes, I just ADORE history! Thanks! I’ve moved on and feel good.

  44. Queen of Dork says:

    PS Yes. My cat is still broken. 😦

  45. Queen of Dork says:

    VonZep: speaking of history, here’s a really, really great novel that I recommend. It’s called Gates of Fire by Stephen Pressfield. Really cool story about the Battle of Thermopylae in Greece in about BC 400 or something like that. There’s a part in there where a squire describes the lovely qualities of his king. I think every manager/boss on earth should read that and emmulate these qualities.

    *steps off soap box*

  46. Queen of Dork says:

    I think I’ve died and gone to Heaven. 🙂

  47. Von Zeppelin – of course you area a basso profundo-I bet you have a low “z” in your tessitura, am I correct?

    Queen of Dork- I hope your cat knits back together soon.

  48. Queen of Dork says:

    Katrina. I think my cat will be okay now. *whew* I feel so happy right now I don’t even know what to do. 🙂 Katrina, I’m soooooo glad you’re feeling better!!!!

  49. Queen of Dork says:

    Speaking of my cat. I just looked at him. He was all “yang, yang, yang” chewing something on the floor. I was like “hey! what the heck are you eating?!” He was all, “yang, yang, yang.” It turned out to be a piece of chicken skin that he stole off my plate while I was in here playing on the computer. Daggon cat.

  50. Von Zeppelin says:

    Katrina, I’m not sure I have a low z in my tessitura. I’m pretty sure I’ve got it in my fettucine con vongole.

    QoD: THIS. . . IS . . . SPARTA!!!!!!! (boot) (That was the part with the POOR management skills)

  51. Queen of Dork says:

    VonZ: Sparta: ahhhhhhhh. That rules. I’m quite Spartan my dang self.

  52. Why on earth is that poor baby wearing a mask?!

  53. For fun. That’s one of our sheep Quincy. We slipped it on him just for the photo. Thought it would be cute for a sheep to not want swine flu.

  54. haha lol!!! thats funnny i wish i had that mask when i had h1n1
    and yes they are ready!!!!! llllllllllllllloooooooooooolllllllllllllllll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  55. …not really cute
    amusing, but, meh
