Can I Get A Nudibranch Pepperoni….To Go?

The Featured Creature likes weird animals- and coincidentally enough, that’s where we spotted this critter- who fits the bill. Almost two years ago (!) we were introduced to Mr. Nudibranch. This year, we have a..Dominos Nudibranch? Pizza Hut Nudibranch? What? Is? That? Answer: a “Pizza Crust Sea Slug.” (Same thing as a Nudi, says FC.) Or, (say like Cliff Clavin:) a “Pleurobranchus Areolatus.”

[*Note- Of COURSE there’s a “Sea Slug Forum.” -Ed.]

It’s My Coming Out Party!

This is my breakthrough moment! The day I come out of my shell and start hatching my own plans! So everybody show up and egg me on!

“Um, excusing of me, but have any life forms located a small metal briefcase? Slate grey, black handle, glowing a little bit and making a humming noise, with tentacles? It’s really important that I get that back.”

Get Smart, Stay Warm

In the colder months, the Secret Society of Master Meerkats prefers to hold its private discussions under the heated Cone of Silence.

Seven-Ten Splat

Welcome back, sports fans, to Bowling for Flies! It’s down to our finalists, Louie “Thundertongue” Muscatola versus Manny “Bug” Zappa!

“I wish I could bowl this well,” laments sender-inner Megan, who apparently never tried just flinging herself down the alley with her tongue out, which turns out to work remarkably well until the management asked me to leave. (PS: Thanks, Brinke!)

Don’t Usually See Your Kind ‘Round Here

Behold The Platypus. Sleek, slick, and so Prosh. Just like our Furball Friends from earlier today, this Beakasaurus hails from Down Undah. Wouldn’t you LOVE to Snorgle that Belleh? Of course. Silly qwesh.

Gotta be careful sometimes, though- “Let’s just, for a moment, overlook the fact that the Platypus could possibly stab you with a heel spur coated in venom (males in the mating season only.) -Roselyn P.
