I'm naming mine "Bruce"

Ten reasons to wear
a platypus on your head:

1) It's chilly outside and hats are expensive.

2) Great icebreaker when going on blind dates.

3) So you can have someone to translate when you find other platypuses (platypi?) on the streets.

4) Platypus is the new black.

5) To set yourself apart from the crowd who wears more mundane and boring animals on their heads. (I mean, c'mon, chipmunks are SO 1997.)

6) So there will be someone to eat your brussels sprouts.

7) To distract onlookers from your recent acne breakouts.

8) Someone to blame your farts on.

9) It stays in place better than a turtle.

10) So you can claim it as a dependent on your tax forms.

Only you would come up with something this bizarre. Funny lady!

Just think: If they were indigenous to North America, Daniel Boon might have invented the 'visor cap'!

What about the fresh eggs? Now you can have fresh eggs AND blame your farts on the Platy.

Janna said...

00dozo: LOL!

MonkeyMan: It's the best of both worlds!

I'm trying to envision what led you to come up with this idea--other than the existence of the platypus, of course. Unfortunately, I can't, and I'm actually slightly worried about you now because I think you might be losing it. Although, to be fair, I totally agree with you that platypus is the new black. Everyone will be wearing platypus to parties this Christmas.

MikeWJ: I've steadily been losing it for the past 40 years. Why should I stop now?

MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings said...

Actually, don't, Janna. I like you just the way you are. And have been. And apparently will continue to be.

MikeWJ: Yay! Did you remember to wear platypus at Thanksgiving?
