Leaping Lizards! Yuck!

There is a lighter side to lizards… just watch them mate sometime.

7 Questions To Ask Yourself While Watching Lizards Mate

  • Isn’t nature amazing?

 

  • What – no foreplay?

 

  • Must they do this in plain sight! on the tennis court! while I’m trying to focus and get some serious exercise FGS?

 

  • On the cuteness scale, where does the baby lizard fall? Above the rhinoceros and below the common frog?

Fake News

  • Is it fake news – or the gospel truth – that lizard penises are used as good luck charms?

Yum 🙂

 

MEOW

  • Is my cute little tabby going to kitty cat hell for biting the head off a lizard three years ago? Perhaps it was self-defense?

Lighten Up

  • If I snap and post a tacky pic of amorous reptiles, is it crossing the thin line on the slippery slope of the dark side? Or does it make me a bonafide nature photographer a la National Geographic?

Humor

 

Geez. So many ethical questions in “journalism” today.

It’s, a, jungle, out, there.

Clown Hysteria: Why is Everybody DOWN on CLOWNS?

1 Oct

Don't talk Politics

Clowns

All the world apparently doesn’t love a clown.

Why the haters?

 

Clowns: Why is Everybody Down on Clowns?

 

It seems to be hip to see ALL clowns as “creepy” and zombies as cool.

It’s ironic that zombies streaked in blood and oozing death are deemed benevolent while goofy clowns donned in ginormous polka-dots are most likely evil.

Am I alone, but what’s not to love about red rubber noses, orange wigs, baggy pants, exaggerated make-up, and over-sized floppy shoes?

99.9999999999999999% of Hollywood – and everyone on TV – wears fake hair and too much make-up. So what?

For the record

My favorite zombie is “the tall mixed drink consisting of several kinds of rum, liqueur, and fruit juice.” […]

Bellyache: Guess Who Came To Dinner

13 May

 

In a perfect world…

You would not celebrate your birthday at a trendy Euro-Asian restaurant touted for it’s delicious, yet healthy dishes and end up in the emergency room 9 hours later with food poisoning. You would not require an I.V.with anti nausea, anti diarrhea, anti pain meds to stop the total body torture.

 

Uninvited: Guess Who Came To Dinner

 

In a perfect world…

You would not cook that special recipe for the in-laws – Quinoa Masala Royale – using infected organic vegetables. Later that evening, our family members would not all coincidentally experience unbearable abdominal cramps normally associated with childbirth. After all, you are a lousy cook, but not that lousy.

In a perfect world…

Our food would make us well, not sick.

April is National Humor Month

10 Apr

 

I love holidays. They have the power to distract from the humdrum that is perhaps  99.9999% of our lives.

Take a regular, run-of-the-mill day or month, proclaim it a holiday, and presto – it’s special. It instantly becomes blog fodder, a popular theme for school activities, a reason to party, and a barrel of marketing opportunities.

In case you missed it,

April is National Humor Month

National Humor Month

 

“National Humor Month was founded in 1976 by best-selling humorist Larry Wilde, Director of The Carmel Institute of Humor. It is designed to heighten public awareness on how the joy and therapeutic value of laughter can improve health, boost morale, increase communication skills and enrich the quality of one’s life.”

It is fitting that April, the clammy month that begins with a spirit of play on April Fool’s Day and includes the dreaded April 15th, Tax Day, celebrate comic relief.

Research studies claim the physical, psychological, and social benefits of humor are tremendous. But have you heard the latest – that humor is an aphrodisiac?

Zoosk “National Humor Month” Survey Finds Humor is An Aphrodisiac – MarketWatch.

“Is that a joke or are you just glad to see me?”
