“Hol-y Cow!”

With such a recognizable catch phrase, it seems odd that Harry Carey would be reincarnated as an alpaca.

Hope you’re a Cubs fan, Jill K.



  1. I’M a Cubs fan!

  2. Eyeglasses?! Heck has anyone seen his EYES????

  3. My eyes! My eyes!

  4. GREAT picture. Love it. It’s like someone crossed a llama with a Bichon Frisee.

  5. All I can think is “Well Gooooolly”

  6. BEEP!

  7. Alpaca lunch and we’ll go see the game. Oh wait, can’t see . . .

  8. KittehsMom says:

    Can you see me? I can’t see you. Can you see me???

  9. The original of Mop Top!
    All you need is Alpaca, do do do do do.

  10. Good one, Desdemona!

  11. IMO alpacas are one of the most inherently cute animals on the planet. I want one!!! They’re quirky, fluffy, awkward, goofy, and just plain strange — what more could you ask?

    –In addition to the Floofiness Supreme, you also have a lovely little
    Jaw Displacement — with Toofy Teef, no less !!

  13. All ready for your date? 🙂

    /Looks kinda like me after the hairdresser got done giving me a “great style” for my prom.
    (eye roll) My Mom & I spent the next hour before my date arrived trying to flatten it down.
    Ahhh, the 80’s./

    (doorbell rings)
    Ahhh, here’s your date now.
    Geeev meee a keeeeeees

  14. Don’t you mean Phil Rizzuto (aka Scooter) of the Yankees? Or was Harry Carrey also known for saying “Holy cow”?

  15. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    It’s good to see that scientists have been so successful in creating Q-Tips for elephants, but the nose anomaly is something they’ll have to take care of.

  16. Geez, thanks Prongs. Now I have my boyfriend’s bad impression of Will Ferrel’s impression of Harry Carey stuck in my head. X3;

  17. @Juno, yes, it’s true. But I don’t think Caray ever discussed canolli on the air.

  18. so cute and the mouth lol

  19. He looks SO SOFT!!! Can you cuddle with alpacas??

  20. Juno, I thought the same thing at first – any New Yorker knows Scooter had the most famous “Ho-lee cow!” in baseball. (Rizzuto’s version even made it into the Meat Loaf song.) But Caray said it plenty, too. It was even the title of his autobiography.

  21. A little OT…does anyone know why I am contantly getting that ANNOYING healthcare ad on the top right of my CO page instead of the routine pictures of past QTE?

  22. Mamamclain says:

    *dons Sherlock Holmes hat and chews on bubble pipe*

    Anyone else realize the wall mural by the qte guy’s head says, ” Hot Dam!”… interesting…. *pulls off Sherlock Holmes hat, but keeps the bubble pipe*

    *dreams of Robert Downey, JR., and falls down ded*

  23. Julia (the one in BC) says:

    What do you see in the alpaca’s nose? I see the face of a snowy owl…

  24. Mamamclain says:

    I do too! Now that you mention it… good catch!

  25. Desdemona for the win!

    He’s floofiness personified. Does he chew from side to side? Is that why his jaw does that awkward looking thing?

  26. Von Zeppelin says:

    The camelid family (camels, llamas, guanacos, alpacas, etc) are known for their tendency to spit. I’m wondering if this guy isn’t chewing tobacco and waiting for a moment for Great Expectorations.

    I don’t know if Harry Caray used chaw himself, but I understand it’s not unheard of among ballplayers–even the Cubs.

  27. I wanna know where to get that poster thats beside him – a bunch of llama’s gathered around saying ‘hot damn’? thats wicked!

  28. What a well-groomed floofy head!

  29. Mind if I show y’a’little sumthin? Your swing is all wrong.

  30. Wooly bulleh, wooly bulleh, wooly bulleh!

    Yes, “The Scooter” said “Holy Cow”.

  31. Paws and Claws says:

    He looks like a smart talkin’ wise guy, kinda with a movie gangster accent. He’s very handsome. I would love to brush his hairs.

  32. My husband calls them Giraffe Sheep.

  33. Nah, I actually don’t know anything about Harry Carey, or the Cubs, or the Yankees, or baseball for that matter. Everything I know about Phil Rizzuto I learned from 1) “Sea of Love,” which I’ve watched a ridiculous number of times, and 2) the Seinfeld episode where George loses his Rizzuto key chain (or was it a bobble head?) and it gets paved over.

  34. ….where it was promptly purchased by goldenpalace.com /snerk

  35. I’d like a “Hot Dam!” llama poster, please. 🙂

  36. paranoiagirl says:

    “Hey, I’ve got a question! If you were a hot dog, and you were hungry, would you eat yourself? Well I know I would. I’d pour on ketchup and relish…heck, I’d be delicious!”

    anyone? anyone?…..::crickets::

  37. Sorcha the cat says:

    Oh, dear! My first post and I’m afraid it’s rather nuffish. However, the poster may be llama-porn. A female llama is a “dam” , so a herd of (possibly) males making that comment…

    I’ve been visiting this site for a while now and my impression is that so many here are wonderfully over-educated!

  38. DaytimeDeb says:


  39. I personally want that print behind him. “Hot dam!”

  40. Eeeeee! My photo!! She was chewing at the time, so that’s why the jaw is crooked. Sorcha the cat, you’re correct about the poster behind her! It was PG, though, nothing too hardcore. : )

  41. KittyMarthaPoo says:

    OMG! What a McFlufferson!! LET ME KISS THE SOFTIE…

  42. Freaky. Where are its eyes? Where did the eyes go? Did the ‘fro eat the eyes? I’m disturbed.

  43. Sorcha the cat-I’ll be happy to take that personally, and welcome, bienvenue, vallcomen, kocktiparsheviayitsia! We are Peeps, and there are all kinds of Peeps!

  44. Hot dam! Wow, learn something new everyday!
