So what? Hundreds of Gerrymanders control Congress.


" No... I don't want to buy any auto insurance ! " >slam<

They wanted $25.00 a hour until it was pointed out they
don't actually have jobs, 'cause they are lizards.

Hundreds of slimy creatures making a nuisance. That sounds like Congress.

They're "congressing" everything in sight. Yep. Congress.

Speaking on behalf of salamanders everywhere, they deserve a new collective noun.

i'll have what dave's having.

They were actually square dance callers practicing 'Salamander left..'

That would be "eft" rather than left, JG.

A female salamander in heat maybe>

In autumn they travel by night to fishless woodland ponds where they may congregate by the hundreds for breeding.

So the answer to Mikey's question is, yes, by all appearances.

We have one or more orangish salamanders living in the basement of my wife's old farmhouse. We never hurt them.
Snakes, too, which we welcome because we know what they're after. They don't come upstairs.
It's best to get along with Nature. If you don't, it's going to win.

I think "Hundreds of Salamanders" would be a great name for a rock band...
