Slugs don't want to fly

"Slugs don't want to fly": MacBerger 2017
Thinking about slug love got me thinking about other things slugs probably didn't want to do which led to this picture.

The goat don't care

The goat don't care: MacBerger 2017
As I was worrying about a test I needed to take, my child found a picture of me as a child with a goat.  The advice Qrow gave me was "think about the goat if you feel worried, cause that goat don't care about anything".  I translated this advice onto paper.

Slugs aren't ready for love

Slugs aren't ready for love : MacBerger 2017
My daughter and her friend captured slugs, made them little homes and tried to make them breed.  The girls tried this by banging the heads of the slugs together as their sex organs are in their heads, however this just resulted in a lot of dead slugs.  I guess they were too shy to get busy on command.

Métis Fear 328: by decolonizing, this kitten could throw off her clothes and the work of washing them.  Imagine what she might accomplish with all that extra time!

Métis Fear 321: the urban bear spends far too much time online and focused on electronic devices.  Chase them outside to play with the neighborhood children.

A recent birthday got me thinking about what a naughty birthday boy Wiitigo would be..

Came across this fellow in the local park appears to be deer on the top but something new on the bottom.  He seemed quite happy watching the chipmunks play.  Any ideas what it is?

Fear of Nature

Peeking raccoons
This morning Runa told me about a lock down they had last year.  The reason? A raccoon on the school grounds.  While I understand you don't want kids licking a raccoon it seemed a little much to lock everyone down to keep them safe from one little raccoon.  I like to imagine that the racoon was accompanied by Nanabush ready to stir up some trouble and tempt some kids into eye juggling.  Apparently a snapping turtle caused a similar lock down.  Don't let nature get you!

Métis Fear 313

The Elephant And The Bad Baby by Raymond Briggs. That baby was so bad.
The Elephant And The Bad Baby by Raymond Briggs
Métis Fear 313: whose definition of "bad" are we using here?  Are we imposing our values on this baby and elephant?  Take back the word.  Maybe they are just making mistakes so they can learn and we need to let them be?

Nanabush thinks this meeting is stupid

Was inspired during a recent meeting and left wondering what Nanabush would think of all the point spinning.  Would he hate it or be really good at it?

New species alert

We found this mooseicorn wandering in one of our local parks.  Having to adapt to market pressures, the moose community has decided to rebrand appeal to young children.  The moose marketing board worked with the moose community to selectively breed for the addition of the new horn and is hoping to expand the range of colours available over the next year.  "Moose have gotten the reputation of being boring.  The younger generation just isn't interested in them anymore." explained marketing chairman B. Moose.  Business plans shared by the marketing board suggest that the mooseicorn will be working with key social media influencers and rap personalities to build and expand the moose plus brand.  They hope that the mooseicon will be able to translate their initial success into global marketing deals that will benefit all moose, even the boring brown ones.

White collar squirrell

This picture raises two questions for me 1. What would coffee do to a squirrel? 2. How has squirrel adapted from life of gathering nuts and running through the trees to paperwork and office towers?  Be kind to your cube mates - they might be squirrels in disguise.

1932 Harry Whittier FreeS Kitty's First Day at Catnip School
Métis Fear 311: these animal relations have already been pre-determined by the school system to be stupid.  Don't forget to decolonize your school, so little whiskers can be seen as a unique person and not a stereotype of a lazy, stupid kitten.

Urban animals

Another rare find, here we see a juvenile traffic cone frolicking on the sidewalk enjoying the sun.  Young traffic cones are usually closely guarded until they are mature enough to survive on their own.
