Friday Haiku Limerick

There once were inseparable pals
One monkey and one little gal
They took strolls and made tea,
Were friendly as could be,
Now both species have evolved morale
-Meg

One toddler and one chimpanzee:
She showed him just how to pour tea.
He would not have maligned her,
But he had to remind her
“Hey kid, you’re descended from me!”
-Jessy

Said the Girl
Some things can not be
I’m afraid you can’t marry me
Your wrinkled and hairy
With manners quite lairy
besides you belong in a tree.
-Honorable Glad

Hey! I come here to Cute Overload
For a kitten or blorpable toad
Orangs should be wild
Not at tea with a child
I will nuff now until I explode!
-Trabb’s Boy

This orangutan’s trying my patience.
I’m tired of his poor imitations
Of the way that I crawl
And my dear little doll,
And I abhor how he wastes my libations!
-Cath

Mr. Mucky McNufferson huffs
His bellicose cheek outward puffs
He raises his ire
With indignant fire
And says to the comments e-NUFF!

“I come to this site for the cute
Like a marmie asleep in a boot
Not a chimp with a kid,
Or, the heavens forbid,
The two of them sharing a snoot!”
-Berthaservant

nooooommmm.” [hours pass]

Amazing New Species Discovered!

Friends, we stand at the threshold of evolutionary history, because the San Francisco Zoo has discovered the first-ever gorilla/giraffe hybrid!  The Zoo has released this amazing photo of the baby “gorillaffe” (homo reticulus redonkuli), which should silence even the most doubtful skeptics, and you can see more on the Zoo’s Picasa pages.
