Big Dog, Little Dog, Alligator, Punk;
Hedgehog, Sea Frog, Opera, and Junk

After all the work I put into that headline you expect an actual post?

Oh, all right…

"[I]ndianapolis detectives this week encountered [an alligator]…while serving a search warrant… They also came upon a brindle mastiff…and his buddy, a Shih Tzu… Their owner…is in custody…on charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and resisting law enforcement… The…alligator is estimated to be about 2 years old, but its gender has not been determined. "It's hard to tell," [Leslie Fatum, administrator of Indianapolis Animal Care and Control] said… "You have to get a little personal.'' The grayish-brown reptile [seems] healthy, she said. "It's pretty active. It kind of jumps at you when you get near it.''

Now here's somethin' I never would have thought of, and if I did, it would be more along the lines of registerin' their death certificates.

Just to keep my readers keep up to date on all things natural, I give you the aquatic scrotum, not to mention the scintillatin' sounds of a hippocampus erectus. Yeah, I didn't know it sounded like anythin' either.

This show opened off-off-off-off-off-off-Broadway—and hopefully stayed there.

"Abrahams, Marc and Don Kater. "Lament del Cockroach"—the Libretto: A mini-opera for Nobel Laureates and mezzo-sopranos. Sanders Theatre, Harvard University, October 3, 1996 on the occasion of the Sixth First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony. The complete libretto is available on-line

"Set in the future when most species have disappeared, the plot focuses on Thelma LaRoach and her friend Louise. Beset by the advances of males of other insect species, these female cockroaches yearn for a male of their own species. A meteorite from Mars carrying bacteria deadly to cockroaches (accompanied by music adapted from Wagner) intervenes, killing these last two cockroaches. The other species, immune, join with the plants—all that now remains on earth (except the bacteria!)—to celebrate (with music from Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus") the extinction of the cockroach."

And speakin' of extinction… Here's the latest news of global warmin'.

Didn't think I could get 'em all in, d'ya!
