Coati Pie

Do you know the coati? These little darlings are in the raccoon family and can go down trees head first.

Usually lots of lady coatis hang out together in what is called “bands” (We’re coming to your town! We’re gonna party down!)

Gentlemen coatis hang out by themselves (I’m Mr. Lonely).

    I now want to start a dating agency for lonely gentleman coatis. It seems a bit unfair that the ladies should spend all their time together, no doubt getting drunk and shopping for high heels (not necessarily in that order).

  20. well huh, apparently I’m a lady coati – minus the shopping part :)

  21. Coulda waited a few days and posted this on Mundi.
