20 Questions Tuesday: 111 - Animals, Part 1

So, I had a hard time coming up with a topic for the 20 Questions Tuesday for today. I hemmed and hawed about various different ideas and finally came to rest of the topic of animals. Well, it turns out that people have all sorts of questions loosely based on the idea of animals. So far I have gotten 51 questions and most if not all of them are serviceable. Let me clarify that point. I DQ some questions because they are too personal, redundant, or dumb.

Thanks this week go to: Lord Pithy, ACW, Sparky, Belsum, and John P.

On to the questions:
1. WTF is up with cats?
OMG, I have no idea.

2. Which would be worse to find in your bed, a horse head, a living platypus or the other half of the horse?
The other half of a horse… it is heavy and filled with... with... fluids.

3. If you could be any animal other than a primate, what would it be?
Probably a housecat. Bunch of pampered lazabouts.

4. Would you rather go naked than wear fur?
Nope. I would rather be dressed in a fur suit… wait how warm is it outside?

5. How cool would it be if you could shed your skin like a snake (by rubbing up against a rock)?
Would it have to be a rock? Couldn’t I get the same effect by rubbing up against some rough bark on a tree or maybe the edge of a building or such. The yes/no answer depends on whether or not the skin flakes off like dandruff or would come off in one big floppy skin suit looking thing.

6. Any animal types permitted in the SRH household?
None are permitted…

7. Party like an animal??? I haven't seen any partying animals - so what gives?
WHAT?!?! What about Spudz MacKenzie?

8. Animals - the last acceptable group for mascots?
Let’s be clear there are only a few animals that fall into that category. You are never going to see the “Fighting Baboons” take the field unless you are watching a nature show and some baboons are fighting in a field.

9. Are you hungry like the wolf?
No, but I do smell like I sound.

10. What's your favorite animal to eat? (with apologies to the vegetarian/vegan readers, of course)
It is a toss up between pig and cow. Pig makes ham and bacon…… mmmmmm bacon, but cow makes steak and hamburger. How to choose? I will go with cow. It is more versatile, meatwise.

11. Deer and coyote are roaming our neighborhood in the 'burbs. The coyotes like the deer...the deer like to eat the landscaping flowers...everyone is freaked out. Many residents, myself included, have spotted coyotes running wild in the cul de sacs and some neighborhood pups have been attacked. My neighbor is very freaked out by animals and so she's flippin' at the notion of deer and coyotes in the yard. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much would this freak you out?

12. What’s your favorite Animals song? Why?
You know the night time, oh, is the right time
To be with the one you love.
I said the night time, ooh, is the right time
To be with the one you love.
I said the night time, ooh, is the right time
To be with the one you love.

Baby, I said a baby, baby, come on and drive me crazy,
Lord,You know I love you; always thinkin' of you.
Hey, baby; oh, I said a baby.

You know the night time is the right time
To be with the one you love.
said the night time oh, is the right time

To be with the one you love.
I said the night time, ooh, is the right time
To be with the one you love.
I said the night time oh, is the right time
To be with the one you love

13. Which is your favorite band named after an animal? What’s your favorite song of theirs? Why?
The Aquabats!

14. Animal: best Muppet ever or just best drummer ever? Discuss
There really isn’t much to discuss. The answer is yes and yes, hands down... move on... next question.

15. If Mary Jane were to refer to Peter Parker as any other animal than “tiger” what should it be and why?
Duckmole, because platypus takes too much effort.

16. Were you ever an animal for Halloween as a kid? Which one? Who decided on that costume?
Nope, but I know someone who dressed up as a monkey for at least 7 years.

17. Which came first the platypus or the egg?
The egg. Egg laying animals came long before Platypi.

18. Does Little Man have a favorite stuffed animal?
He has a few that he cycles through: Pinto the horse, Leopard the leopard, and Shmuze-me the Dog.

19. Iced or plain animal crackers? Mmm, need to get some milk now
Iced… the pink iced Keebler animal crackers cookies

20. If you could be reincarnated as any animal what would it be? Let’s allow the mythic creatures to also be included for consideration. I have learned it is best to give you a lot of latitude.
Any animal, mythic or not? I would go with a Titan. I’d give Zues whatfor.

To recap:
For some reason I am having the hardest time recapping today
I think it is because I need to burp
Okay, that should clear things up now…
Sorry people in adjacent cubes
I have started mixing in the Diet Mt Dews with the full on Mt Dews these days
The metabolism is not what it used to be
Snow on Mars? WTF!?!
