“Wombats are an endangered species, because they can’t fly like regular bats, so they’re easy to catch.”
Too much starch, maybe?

Speaking of sensor eyes, the local electric company sent techs around a few years ago with all kinds of energy-saving devices including a motion sensor that would turn off your TV after 1-2 hours if it didn’t detect anything moving. (I guess it was in case you fell asleep watching the tube.) Well, the first time we tested it by leaving the TV on when we went to bed, that stupid thing messed up the set’s programming big-time! We disconnected it & now it’s buried in a drawer somewhere. Good riddance.
I lasted for about 23 seconds of that. Then I Googled the lyrics – much easier to take! 8-)
When I was 6 or 7, I asked my grandpa if he liked to eat nuts. He said, “What do you think I am, a cannibal?” 8-)
All my bosses have liked Da ’Nip, but BS the Maine Coon Monster wins the prize for biggest stoner. Once he literally ate a catnip mouse – well, half a catnip mouse. The rest of Da ’Nip ended up strewn all over the place with him rolling in it. Another time I bought a potted catnip plant, which he promptly dug up & scattered (along with damp soil) & pretty well ground into the living room carpet.
The only thing he loved (almost) as much as Da ‘Nip was my ex’s moccasins. He’d stuff his face in one & shove it across the room until he ran into the wall. At least I didn’t have to rent a rug shampooer when that happened!
I think Black Widow spiders are gorgeous. When I was 5 or 6, my mom showed me one in the garage. She was beautiful – but her web was a wretched mess!
Mmmmm…soft pretzels NOMNOMNOM…back in the pre-COVID days, guys would be selling them to drivers waiting at stoplights in Philly. At the “Philly Pretzel Factory” in the shopping center near me, you can watch them being made & there are always fresh free samples. My diabetic self stays far away from there except when they’re running a 5 for $5 special on pretzel dogs!
