WHY WE APPRECIATE GUYS

Guys will do anything to have sex keep the species going. Take the guy jumping spider. Look what he goes through to get the female to mate with him. He's working so hard that I almost want to have sex with him, and the female just sits there, probably thinking about shoes.

MAINE

A Festival of Wildlife

IDAHO UPDATE

There's a horse farm near us, and every morning the horses hold a meeting. They all gather in one spot on the pasture and form a circle, heads facing in, and they stay that way for a long time. I assume they're going over the day's schedule. ("OK, we're going to eat, poop, and swish our tails. Everybody got that?" "Wait, what was number two again?")

ALL HUMANITY REJOICES

TERRORISM UPDATE

Tired of this? There is a solution.

IDAHO UPDATE

Our car almost hit a deer last night. We were driving along a rural road and suddenly YIKES this deer, who had apparently been waiting in the dark for a car to come along, leaped in front of us, forcing me to slam on the brakes and barely avoid making the weewee of  startlement. Why do deer do this? Do they enjoy it? Do they give each other high hooves and go, "Good one, Bob! They will have to clean the seats for sure!"?

Maybe we need some kind of federal program to keep them occupied, such as midnight deer basketball.

ADVISORY TO MEMPHIS GOLFERS

Keep an eye out for Fluffy.

WHY THE INTERNET IS IMPORTANT

It connects people with common interests.

(Thanks to Claire Martin)

Update: Apparently this item was already posted by judi, who will be tracked down, re-hired, and re-fired for this transgression. I'm afraid this will continue to happen until judi has the basic human courtesy to, before she posts an item, travel forward in time to make sure that I will not be posting that item at some point in the future. Is that so much to ask?

Dave,
Just got back from Disney World.
Did not see even a common housefly.
There are thousands of people.
Many walking while eating giant turkey legs.
Condiment stands, out in the open, everywhere.
Not one insect.
Of any kind.
It's Florida.
It's July. (was)
Did not see one stinking bug in the buggiest state in the Union.
Asked a food-stand employee.
Her straight-faced reply, "Just part of the 'Disney Magic'!"
It was either write to you or notify Agents Mulder and Sculley.
I couldn't find their email addresses.
Thanks,
Ted K Brown

There's actually a simple explanation for this phenomenon: They keep Disney World very, very clean. That's all there is to it! (Except for the atomic radiation, but that's perfectly harmless, as long as you never get within a five-mile radius of Cinderella's castle.)

HARRY-POTTER-RELATED QUESTION OF THE DAY

Last Friday night when the s.b. and her son were off to a major chain bookstore (instead of Books and Books because we live in Broward but don't tell Mitch) to get our Harry Potter Book 7s, said son decided to stop for a dark chocolate shake at a local restaurant, which we shall call Snake N Snape.

The teenager at the drive-thru asked him, without preamble, "Do you have ketchup at home?"

Now, he had ordered a shake. Just a shake. But he dutifully answered, "Yes."

The s.b., being the nosy type, leaned over and said, "Why do you want to know?"

And the girl replied, "This woman was just here and she asked for a lot of ketchup 'cause she said she doesn't have any at home. So I gave her a whole big bottle, and she took it! Just took it and drove away. That's so ghetto! I didn't think she was going to take it! It's so ghetto!"

To which the s.b. replied, "Well, I have ketchup at home but if you'd offered me a whole bottle of it for free, I'd've taken it too. I mean, why not? It's free ketchup."

And she said, "That's so ghetto!"

The question: What else would this work with?

IDAHO UPDATE

Blogging from me will be light today, as I will be out exploring nature. There is a huge amount of nature here. Sometimes it gets into the house. We've heard there is a moose in the neighborhood; so far we haven't seen it, but the neighbors have, several times. We hope it doesn't get into the house, because that would violate the rental agreement.

We have a house full of children, who have developed a keen interest in moths. They'll capture a moth, give it a name (Mo, Mo Junior, Mo Junior Junior, etc.) then take care of it, giving it food and water until it dies. Then they'll capture another moth (Mo Junior Junior Junior) and repeat the process, as the Great Circle of Moth Life continues. At this rate, there will soon be no moths left in Idaho.

We have also heard there are bears around. We have not seen one yet, but we are staying alert.

Update: I just checked, and at the moment our moth herd consists of four head of moth.
