Just so you know

If you ever find yourself at the edge of a forest, wearing blue, looking at a pine tree while eating potato chips, and a nearby raccoon asks if he can have just one of your potato chips, DON'T believe him.
It is a dirty trick.

This tiny little baby monkey at the Cincy zoo once begged (with its little hand out~ who can resist?) for one of my pretzels. The sign said Don't Feed 'Em, but I knocked the salt off the pretzel and gave it to the little baby.
Which sent the whole cage in an uproar of raucous begging and screeching for pretzels!!

How much noise can an outdoor cage full of little monkeys make? You don't wanna know.

You know, you may as well just give up the whole bag.

I was going to say "ya can't trust them coons"
Because I'm from Kentucky I thought I could say "coons" and get away with it in the context of your raccoon related post, but I didn't want the entire pygmy nation of South Africa to be at your doorstep again screaming racist epithets at you, so I shall say, "Please don't feed the wild life, including the raccoons."

I just shared with my sistah and we suddenly have an imperative need to change our pants.

Christine: Oh, how embarrassing! Were there a lot of people around, and did they know that the whole mess was your fault? :)

Onionboy: Random reply

Lynda: Never!!

Morgen: I don't need any more racial disharmony!

Danielle: Oops!

That's why you only bring Pringles into the forest. Raccoons won't touch 'em.

Lynda said...

There is a reason those racoons wear a mask, ya know. They will get it from you one way or another.

Janna said...

Mr. Fab: Is that because they don't like the flavor, or because they can't open the can?

Lynda: Zorro wore masks too; would HE steal my potato chips?
