Taking Stock of the Livestock

“On a scale from one to ten, ten being best, how would you rate the quality of the visitors here at the zoo?”

“About a six. I mean, I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining, but most of them just stand there and stare back at us. They don’t frolic or jump around or anything entertaining like that. Sometimes Carl will hock a loogey at one of them, and that riles them up a bit, but most of the time? Dullsville. Oh, and none of them can operate a camera worth a damn — am I right, Carl?”


“You said it, Lenny!”

    “Well, llama get going now. I’ve got to hoof it over to the ungulate center for a trim and it’s a pretty long walk. Carl – wanna come?”

    “Sure thing – alpaca lunch!”

        LOL – by the way, I’ve been wondering – if that was the ‘Old Ranch’…does that make us the Funny Farm? 😀

          Oh yes, we are definitely the Funny Farm over here. Maybe this is what happens when you let the inmates run the asylum????

            Boing boing boing.

          I got a weird visual of NTMTOM version of a Funny Farm. And us all dropping in randomly see the view.

          Use your own imaginations.

      Be careful you don’t get any on your shoes.

    Carl has even fewer Fs to give than Janice in Accounting.

    If Carl says “Cheese!” or even smiles too big, the photographer stands a good chance of losing his camera!
