Vlog prep.

I've recorded the vlog -- promised here -- and it will take a little while to upload, but please use the time to study this relevant photograph:

But you know-this is why you don't promise three year olds anything......

They'll nag the *ump* outta you.

I know they aren't this, but I was immediately reminded of such:

Now when you pick a pawpaw
Or a prickly pear
And you prick a raw paw
Next time beware
Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw
When you pick a pear
Try to use the claw
But you don't need to use the claw
When you pick a pear of the big pawpaw
Have I given you a clue ?

The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!


(Disney's Jungle Book--Baloo)

It takes a lot of balls to post a picture like that.

Dr. Evil: At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum, it's breathtaking, I suggest you try it.

Therapist: You know, we have to stop.

Looks so...familiar....

Now I ask you, what would be the point of a plant evolving seed pods like that? Do they expect them to float away? Roll downhill? Protection from being eaten like a puffer fish? Wouldn't being eaten be a good thing for a seed, like birds-eye chile seeds? Are they like Mars lander tumble seed pods? What?

Maybe they're not filled with air but with juicy goodness that invites bats or something.

Maybe they're attempting to be a house for insects and have their seeds carried off and scattered.

Shock value. That's what it is. I'm convinced, some plants intend solely to startle.

Gooseberries are ferocious.

I saw those in August at Olbrich. They were just pale green all over. I much prefer the touch of red for the fall.

I love hairy balls.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

Pete Schwetty's balls.


Mmmmm...balls.

You have some beautiful balls.

They're a little bigger than I expected.

I prefer mine at least trimmed, thank you.

bearbee said...

Coincident that while you are observing the hairy balls a guy happens to walk by and asks what they are called?

I think not.

What bearbee said.

By the way, I love it when you talk dirty to us.
