Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Happy Apocalyptic New Year

This was originally posted by the artist at the end of 2009, but NOW is the proper time for it.

To my human friends: Your kind have been fruitful and multiplied far beyond the point of sustainability, and now there are far too many of you. Time is running out, and you have only two options left:

1 – Armageddon or …
2 - Transform yourselves into another species.

Years ago, I made a moral choice and chose the latter option. I assure you: The process is easy and painless (nothing like a sex-change at all), and there are numerous role models from which to chose: Invertebrates, fish, birds, reptiles, small mammals … the choice is yours. I understand there is a job opening for an amphibian that can do voice-overs, and the Swash Zone can use a good barnacle.

Remember: A species change is the most sublime form of cross-dressing.

Barnacles are too passive.

Since I can't be either a flying monkey nor a rainbow pooping unicorn, I'll morph from being a mere squid-hugger to being an actual squid.

Thanks for the tip!

VERY amusing post and comments!

I choose the sloth. Some call it sinfully lazy. I call it virtuously patient. ;)

I must admit that the rainbow pooping unicorn does have some appeal to me, but only if I can be truly blissfully ignorant and therefore fully enjoy the experience, lol.

Jazzbumpa said...

Sorry, Mark, no unicorn for you.

You're the sloth who knows too much.
