National Hug A Hedgehog Day

2 May

I have decided that it is imperative to national security that our country declare a National Hug A Hedgehog Day. Since all the politicians are busy doing whatever silliness they’re up to right now and not focusing on important issues such as this one, I am taking the liberty to declare today, May 2nd, National Hedgehog Day!
So go don your thickest leather gloves and jacket, chase a little spikey bugger around, and give it a big ol’ hug of super special love.

Fun fact: When the male hedgehog wants to have sex, he chases the female around screaming his head off until she gets annoyed and lets him have some sex just so he’ll shut up.
It makes me wonder if some of my ex-boyfriends were female hedgehogs disguised as men.

Best Lunchbox Ever

29 Apr

 I need this lunch box.
Like, right now.
Though, if I work in a hospital, then I run the risk of having my delicious turkey sandwich transplanted into some random guy. And I love my turkey sandwiches too much to risk that happening.
It would probably suck for the guy too.
As delicious as turkey is, it is a poor substitute for the organ responsible for blood transport.

Mr. T-Rex always did have a hard time with a shovel, due to their awkwardly short arms.
Poor T-Rex.

 

Knitted Gnome Sodomy

1 Apr

This past week has been my birthday week, and full of awesome shenanigans as well as continuing packing and preparing for the move. My apartment is full of boxes, my tummy is full of microbrew and strawberry-rhubarb pie, and my brain is exploding with happiness.
But before I curl up in bed, I can’t resist sharing the wonderful presents I received tonight from my dear friend Margherita, who is a yarn genius and a connoisseur of cute.

Knowing that I am absolutely in love with blood, particularly red blood cells, she knit me a tiny RBC:

 I shall call him Eric the Erythrocyte!

She also made me 10 gnome minions!

I absolutely love gnomes!
They have beards, which I’ve always had a weakness for, and are kind of creepy, but in an cute way.
(Like me!)
When I was a teenager, while all the other girls dreamed of marriage and children, I dreamed of being a part of the Garden Gnome Liberation Front. (aka the Front pour la Libération des Nains de Jardin. The French are weird in an oddly lovable way, and fifteen-year-old me believed that stolen gnomes were essentially catnip for French people).

If you look closely, you’ll see that one of the gnomes (lower left) has a red beard.
Ginger gnome!
And another (lower right) is missing his shirt.
And one of the gnomes (on the very top) is completely nude.

Newton, The Nudist Gnome!
I plan to let him go skinny dipping in my sink.
Fortunately, his beard is long enough to allow for some modesty, though Margherita admitted that she was tempted to make him anatomically correct.

And two gnomes are engaging in what has to be the most adorable depiction of sodomy I’ve ever seen.
Gnome sex has never been so cute.
Which is really saying something, as tiny gnome sex is already pretty damn adorable.

Also, to top things off, she made me an itty bitty narwhal named Natalie:

*squeeee!*

Oh, Fibonacci ^_^

Meryl Streep Is A Mimic Octopus

27 Mar

The mimic octopus, Thaumoctopus mimicus, can imitate 15 aquatic animals (that we know of), including sea snakes, lion fish, flatfish, giant crabs, stingrays, and jellyfish. It can even do giant seashells, because why should it limit itself to just animals?
There are mimics that it can do that we haven’t figured out what it’s trying to mimic. Robert Krulwich of NPR wonders if maybe it’s unknown mimics are a product of its imagination.

Octopi are so intelligent, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if they possess imagination. I love how Mr. Krulwich describes this creature as the Meryl Streep of the ocean.

I bet if the mimic octopus saw a picture of Meryl, it would instantly try to transform into her.

…Or what if Meryl Streep is a mimic octopus in disguise?!
The hair in this photo does look suspiciously like octopus arms. It would also explain her ability to morph into any role with apparent ease. It would make sense that the greatest living film actress is an octopus.
No human could be that awesome.

I’m on to you, Meryl!
