My Mailbox....

... the latest issue of Smithsonian is adorned with a lemur on the front cover... and it really is a good photo... happy little lemur hopping around.... hey, I like lemurs...

... but upon checking the mailbox and finding the current magazine, I began giggling... and by the time I had made the ninety feet up from the road to the house, I was laughing out loud... I do so love lemurs...

.. when I saw that little lemur face smiling at me, well, I couldn't help but remember a "nature" video that I once watched.... the subject was on animals who had succumbed to drug addiction... chimps who chain-smoked... baboons who would nick the Singapore Sling right out of your hand when you turned your head... etc..

... the tone of the film was serious though... it's quite a problem in some resort areas, I guess... I mean, you really don't want to take vacation on an exotic beach somewhere... only to have your cold beers stolen by a gang of snarling primates... well, maybe you do, but I sure wouldn't... besides, I wouldn't give up my scotch without a fight.. and can you just imagine how embarrassing it would be to get beaten up by a bunch of monkeys?...

... anyway, the lemurs in the video really stole the show... not only for creativity, but for pure stoned abandon... I mean, seeing a drunk monkey passed out under a picnic table is pretty funny... but seeing a lemur drool, go cross-eyed, and slump in a stupor against a palm tree is just hilarious....

... and hey, like I said, the lemurs had style.... they didn't go for drinks or smokes... nope, they went straight for the top-shelf hardcore... the crackpipe of the animal world... millipede juice...

.. see, evidently there is a species of big, red millipede that live in Madagascar... and when they get agitated they secrete a poisonous slime.... well, the lemurs had figured out that if they caught themselves a big, red millipede and crunched it a few times, it would start oozing toxins... and then if they licked that crap up, they'd get a buzz...

... have you ever seen a lemur that was stoned stiff on millipede secretions?... just trust me... it's hilarious...

... anyway, that was what I was thinking about after I checked my mail today...

UPDATE!! UPDATE!!.. here is a video of a lemur getting stoned and rubbing himself with a big, red millipede!....

The video sent my computer into a state of warp lock. Serves me right for clicking on a link to see a stoned farookin' lemur rubbing itself with a big, red millipede.

"Damn, gotta see that lemur!" Sometimes my very own douchebaggery slays me.

I had a dog one time that liked to knock your beer over and drink it. We finally set him up with seven and seven's which he seemed to like better once he got over the fizz.

We should start a Lemur Lovers Club. They are our favorite at any zoo. Didn't that guy on the cover look like he was dancing on water? Hell if anything can, Lemurs should, they are that cool.

I like lemurs, but that thing had way too much fun with a simple snack. Reminded me of you in Athens, dude. All over my ass.

.. no way, Velociman... it was YOU who had your tongue in MY ear... not the other way 'round...

... but I'm glad you remember it so fondly...
