Father’s Day salute to the Seahorse

Let’s all give it up for the male seahorse. He’s the only species on the planet in which the male carries the babies.

Oh yeah, AND he can get knocked up again within 24 hours of giving birf. Schweet.

I’m sure the folks over at Monterey Bay Aquarium know what they’re doing Debra N. Oh and Keyboard Cat is watching his back!

Vintage Blorp

Time for an oldie: This roly-poly puddle of blorpitude was part of the welcoming committee for the First Australasian Antarctic Expedition, almost one hundred years ago.

Are We Too Late for the Audition?

“Hey, I heard you guys were re-making ‘Land of the Lost’ and me and my friend here would be perfect in it!  We got this specialty act, see:  It’s a lizard… riding on top of another lizard! Is that crazy?  Is that a wacky bit?  I’m telling ya, they loved us in the Catskills!  So when do we start filming?”

Next Season, On “Meercat Manor”

The Whiskers family, tired of spending cold winters underground, pools their appearance fees from season one and buys a McMansion in foreclosure.  Catch the season opener Thursday at 8 PM, followed by an all-new “Flip This Burrow.”

I just love what they’ve done with the place, Rachel N.

Here is the back story. Miss. McCoonersons here fell out of a tree. Attempts to return her to Mom were unsuccessful.

Yee-up, another Memorial Day weekend…

Time to dust off my uniform for the annual veterans’ hop down Main Street, then it’s over to the Loyal Order of Wallabies Hall for some of Ethel Lundegaard’s famous hotdish.  (Ooh, my lumbago’s acting up; maybe I’ll skip the parade…)

Uh, would you kids in the background like to get a room or something?  SHEESH!

Save some room for Eunice S’s sender-inner surprise, gramps!
