    That lemming learned a lot about life in those five seconds.

    After watching the Disney-made documentary somone posted yesterday, it makes me think that ALL lemmings will sooner or later become extinct.

    It’s his own fault; he should have double-dog-dared them.

    Uncool. But it reminds of several episodes of ‘That 70s Show’ in which Kelso is persuaded to jump off the water tower, his friends insisting that they will jump with him. But they never do. They never do…

    Punch line reminds me of The Waitresses’ “I Know What Boys Like.”

    Sucker? Or did he parafoil down to the valley and live happily ever after? Lemmings ain’t what they used to be!

    I just noticed the sidebar ad that says “Watch your favourite characters in these animated shorts!” But I’m sleep deprived so I thought they had undershorts with lights and music….

    I’d read somewhere long, long ago that lemmings are migratory, and during their migration they cross many ponds and lakes to get to their intended destination.
    Observed “jumping off a cliff” they weren’t really committing suicide, they were just thinking that it was another pond to cross. Well, they were right, of course, but it was a BIG, BIG pond and they never got to “The Far Side”
    (Where, oh where is Gary Larson? Come back; we NEED you!)

    DITTO! I miss the Far Side. I even have the big two book set of all the strips …..
    Don’t read it much – but every now and then it’s good to take down a volume and open a random page.

    Here’s a bit of reversal from “The New Yorker.”

    Oh, and did you know that lemmings like “cliffhanger” movies?

    A “sucker” is a “fall guy”…… this particular case, a lemming.
