Word to your Mama

I’m such a happy llama; don’t need none of your drama
I’ve got the cutest smile from here to Yokohama
If you’ve got major trauma, like a rip in your pajama,
Just gaze into my happy face until you’re feeling warma.

For a photo with such class, we give thanks to tintedglass.

    I wish that I had ever in my life felt as happy as this guy looks.

  3. “The one ‘l’ lama, he’s a priest;
    The two ‘ll’ lama, he’s a beast.
    But I’ll bet a silk pajama
    You’ve never seen a three ‘lll’ lama.”
    (can’t remember author’s name, but this fits the bill…er, schnozz)

    1. Hovertext!

    2. Don’t tell me that this here llama
    Ain’t the cutest thing in Grand Bahama,
    I always uses prefect gramma’,
    and ends all my clauses with a comma.
    I know more history than
    Simon Schama
    And I;m chiller than the Dalai Lama. 😀

  5. victoreia says:

    I’m hearing this as read by Robin Williams……

  6. It was Ogden Nash (Wikipedia says)

    I think this lama
    Has attained Nirvana

  7. joools in PDX says:

  15. skippymom says:

    Actually, Gigi, it’s funny you should mention that, because I have always imagined you as wearing a pearl necklace and reading glasses.

  16. dgerish says:

    Okay, NOMTOM, let’s see you do this with ALPACA! Or cria, the term for babies of both species. I loves the camelids.

    Mais. Not maid. But you knew that.
    Can I go home now?

  22. skippymom says:

  23. Following up the Ogden Nash, someone once quipped that a three lll lama is a heck of a big fire.
