actual conversation last night (based on some crap from the idiot box):

Wife sublime: Don't you think someone would NOTICE that the hippo didin't have a dick?

Zombie: Who's gonna check?

Any chance you can shoo these beasts to DC? I'd wager they're starving after eating frail serfs for centuries.

Von said...

Yes, I haz question.
Why is the crocodile eating a contortionist?

Any Questions?

How much for the women?

Jennifer said...

Thundra- your illustration needs a stiff croc.

Jennifer said...

On second thought... then your moose would be Brett Favre... never mind.

For up-to-date information about crocodile and hippopotamus anatomy I go to Walt Disney.

Why is the crocodile eating a contortionist?

Is not a contortionist. Is a Louise Bourgeois sculpture. Crocodile is an art critic.

I look at that last drawing and I think "My god, I'm a fraud." Thanks for the existential crisis, Thunder.

Oh, and of course, I want spongey yellow boots.

Image #2 is from T.H. White's translation of a mediaeval bestiary.

"This is called a COCODRYLLUS from its crocus or saffron colour."

AHA!

The only one I can communicate with is S.C., Randal. And he lives far, far away in upside-downland.

Ahh, the Kitler Maggie.

I trust she is doing well?

Smut Clyde said...

If you are seeing the Kitler photograph then Flickr is being a lying jade.
This was the intended helpful image

I got the entire photo stream including Maggie.

I see what you mean about the art critic.

P.S. I believe I have some orbage photos with the new camera...just taken tonight.

Smut Clyde said...

AH, I see.
Maggie Kitler went back to the SPCA as soon as they had room for her, and they found her a permanent home. Then they gave us a new batch of kittens who needed fostering until they were big enough to be re-housed. So the cycle continued.

"This is called a COCODRYLLUS from its crocus or saffron colour."

I find that powdered crocodile imparts a lovely color to rice.

Another Kiwi said...

it is getting the talcum powder all over the croc that is the difficult part.

A moose with banana-peel feet is a joke that writes itself.

AHEM, Mr McG.
