He didn’t see this coming.

I never want anyone injured, but I find myself rooting for the bull every time.

He almost cleared it.

Just vicious.

Koala bear survives hit and run, STD

July 16, 2008

(Kim Kardashian loves koalas…not that it has anything to do with Ely’s..umm…infection)

This is a bizarre story when you consider he survived being hit by a car. And then you read what else he’s being treated for besides his injuries from the car. Ely’s a straight playa!

CANBERRA (Reuters) – A koala that cheated death after being hit by a car at 100 kmh (about 60 mph) and dragged with his head jammed through the vehicle grill for 12 kms (about 7 miles) is being dubbed Australia’s luckiest marsupial.

The eight-year-old male koala, named “Ely ‘Lucky’ Grills” by rescuers, was struck by an unwitting motorist north of Brisbane and found only when the car stopped after being flagged down by another vehicle.

“To have him survive and virtually unscathed is quite miraculous,” Australian Wildlife Hospital spokewoman Carolyn Beaton told Reuters Tuesday.

“Lucky” hung on during his ordeal with one arm and his trapped head, and was freed with household scissors used like a fireman’s “jaws-of-life” to cut around the car’s mesh grill with the horrified owner’s permission, Beaton said.

“Whilst Lucky was in shock, he quickly recovered and was nearly better after a couple of hours rest and a feed,” she said.

Lucky will stay at the hospital, set up by the late television wildlife and crocodile crusader Steve Irwin, for 45 days to recover from his experience and receive treatment for a chlamydial infection.

Now that I think about it, I do recall reading that Pamela Anderson just returned from a trip to Australia as well…..<ponders>

It’s a powerful song, and the trio naturally get carried away with their emotions.

Free puppy!

June 10, 2008

Just received this email from a friend, in case anyone is interested.

My neighbor has a puppy he’s giving away (FREE!).
It’s a Dachshund, it’s house broken, and it’s great with kids.
He’s giving it away because his wife says the dog ‘stares’ at her when she is undressing ,
And that gives her the ‘Heebie Jeebies’. I think she is just weird!
If you’re interested, or know someone who is, let me know.

Here’s a picture of the dog.

UK Nanny State to fight for dignity of………crabs.

As the schoolchildren head down to the seashore with their hooks, lines and buckets to see what they can catch, experts say they should pack a leaflet on crustacean care too.

About 10,000 leaflets will be handed out this weekend, following investigations by Cambridge University students, which revealed that overcrowding crabs in buckets could cause stress for the smaller ones and lead to fights.

blah, blah…….stop being so shellfish and read more here.
