    Ironically, the last thing a lot of armadillos see is the word DODGE.

    They seem to have an attraction to 18-wheelers.

    They must be semi-conductors.

    How about a bundle of 40 air bags wrapped in a sphere around him that go off when he’s struck by a car?

    Around here I see a lot of racoons sleeping very close to the road….looks kinda dangerous….Possum too…They are very good at playing dead….The tire tracks are the kicker….

    When your defense mechanism is to curl into a ball, you are not very well adapted to dealing with large moving metal masses. Well least not the big ones, my dad use to tell stories about the things getting hit by cars and walking away like it was nothing.

    Hedgehogs have this same problem in Europe, though their greatest enemy appears to be the weed-whacker.

    Every time I see Armando in PBS I hear in my head the scene from Steel Magnolias where they discuss “bleedin’ armadilla groom’s cake” made of Red Velvet Cake and grey icing. “I don’ even wanna think about how you make grey icin’.”

    @orinoco womble
    Seeing Shirley McLaine serve Tom Skerritt the hind end of that cake was among the best scenes in the flick. I still chuckle over that whenever someone mentions red velvet cake.

    Goat is sounding awfully elitist in panel 3; why doesn’t he explain Survival Tactics to poor Armando, who is simply following his genetically-wired instinct?

    I know a lot of people like this. The trouble is that there are not enough 18 wheelers in the world to get rid of them all.
