It’s Chilly Out, So Don’t Forget Your Sweateuh!

(Yeah, going against popular o-pin-yun with the spelling, I know, I know.)

The WHITE DEATH cold winter weather continues in parts the US, so you guys need to make sure to bundle up before you venture outside, OK then?

Tammy Nose Best

People, won’t you please meet Tammy, she of the SUPERSONIC SCHNOZZOLA- current domicile, London Zoo.

Definition Snout: A prolongation of the head.

That’s what I’ve got! G’day, mate, I’m a echidna or spiny anteater, if you prefer. I don’t mean to big note oneself, but I have spiny spines, grow a pouch, lay eggs AND nurse my young…


I live in Australia where I dig in anthills and termite hills and bog in bities with my long sticky tongue, housed in my enormous snout. Well, that’s all from down under for now, have a bonza day!
