I think you and Odie are right where y'all need to be...in Florida. I mean, y'all do have the Everglades. That is "something" we don't have here in Texas. That's why Louisiana exists. We drew our eastern border and gave them the swamp lands.

I don't know if it was because of us kids or if she was just so devout.

I guess I should donate my Komodo Dragon to a zoo.

Later.

I think being attacked by a chimp is in my top 10 ways I don't want to die.
it seems like once they get into adulthood their nartural instincts take over no matter where they are raised.
Scary stuff.
If you're going to on one put a freaking self destruct chip in it. Then the day it goes "ape****" just...beep.

I used to own a couple Emperor Scorpions. They died after a couple of years, they really got the whole thrill to have a neat pet idea out of my head. I'll gladly stick to dogs now

I always wanted a pet Wolverine. I'd put it in a blue and yellow costume and walk it around with one of those poles with the noose on the end that dog catchers use. Then I could randomly select a vet's office, and walk in.

receptionist; What the hell is that thing

Me: it's my pet wolverine, Logan

reception: OMG!!!

Me: what, do I need an appointment?

Reception: Sir, we don't treat these types of animals

Me: What kind of animals?

Receptionist: WILD animals!

Me: He's not wild, he just dresses that way!
