is the unsual part the fact that it looks rather like a buck toothed reproductive organ?

No, it doesn't look like one.


it goes without saying 'naked mole rats' wgabnfarb

cg, I'd want that away from me (iycmd)

Naked Mole-Rats are such trollops . . .

Put a condom on that thing!

And "har!" to Dave's headline.


Off-topic, I hope The Blog isn't part of the 15%.

"Well, how should we name this new species?"

"How about 'Uncircumcised-Penis-with-Teeth-and-Claws Rat?'"

"No, too wordy."

"Tancredo Rat?"

"No. Redundant."



"Never mind. How about Naked Mole Rat?'

"That'll do."

*WAVES @ Hammie!!!*

“The queen has the most attractive job,”

Well, alert the media!

cg - ew.

Siouxie - even MORE ew.

Siouxie, I'm not sure I can forgive you for that picture....

Hiya, Hammie!!!!! *waves excitedly*

Oh I dunno. The little critter's kinda growing on me.


*Waves @ Siouxie!!!*

Wow. Reminds me of Spring Break.

*Waves @ Diva!!!*

Yuck. Looks like something out of that old Stephen King short story "Night Shift."

And Siouxie's photo looks like one of the flying ones...

I'm glad someone is studying the reproductive cycle of the naked mole rat and I'm doubly glad it isn't me.

That reminds me, I have a dentist appointment on Thursday.

GAH! So much for my lunch break!


For all you Kim Possible fans out there, there is this Rufus doll. Unfortunately, it is out of stock. Reportedly, it burps.

*snork* @ Siouxie's picture!

I mean, not at a picture of Siouxie, butt the one she posted of the nasty rat.

Looks a bit small to be a um, member. No?

"It is generally more advantageous for the colony to have female progeny, because as workers they benefit the colony more than male offspring."

Just like humans...

No response to my 'small member' inquiry from the boy bloggers. Guess we have some metrically challenged dudes.

NOT our guys, Annie.

um...tiny member warning.

*holds out magnifying glass*

Depends on the guy, Annie. Truly.

Naked mole rats are already blind, so the blindfolds are superfluous, unless they're into something kinky.

Hammie, your Tancredo Rat is here.
