‘Tocks? Did Somebody Say ‘Tocks?

If it’s a bad day, or even a bad week,
There is some comfort you can seek.
To gaze upon a fluffy cheek
Will cheer you up when you feel bleak.

The humble buttock, you will find
Is Nature’s method to remind
Us all to relax and unwind
And never mind if we fall behind.

And soon, thanks to this tiny twerker
You’re feeling calm and less berzerker.
Just why do ‘tocks make us feel perkier?
Don’t ask me why; I only work ‘ere.

    I can’t decide what I like most: the poem, the pictures or the hover text. I can only say I started to laugh and I needed a laugh.

    Soooooo true about the 75% fluff on the bunny butt! My Theo HATES to be brushed in the nether regions, so he always has this fur “skirt” about his ‘tocks!

    I’m so glad the concept of “tocks” wasn’t lost to the previous site.

    My dear NTMTOM, you are a present day Don Francisco de Quevedo…

    Yay for the return of the ‘tocks!

    Oops. The hover text for the top photo says “alpaca,” but the credit at the bottom says “llama.” Two different, though related, animals. (Both are lovely.)

      Thanks for pointing that out (and welcome to the comments area, glad to have you). I have a hard time telling llamas and alpacas apart, especially from behind, so I’ll defer to the photographer and change the hovertext.

    THANK YOU! I don’t know what I would do without ‘tocks in my life. Please keep the ‘tocks alive, especially for that particular 10th month of the year. <3 <3

    Yay, the ‘tocks live on! And excellent poetic accompaniment as well.

    I will be the voice of dissent in this tock lovefest.
    I much prefer the front of annipals to their tocks, especially when my cat stick hers in my face!

      ahahahahahaha aahahahahaha!!!!
      (I can totally relate)

    • Juno February 8, 2016 / 5:12 pm

      Awwwww, that’s LOVE!

    • amyliz February 8, 2016 / 6:50 pm

      Yes, cats are good at that! 😏

    In Polish, this is called a “Dupa”
    (My spelling might just be a bloopah)
    But let’s all shout out in a groupah,
    “All these ‘tocks are ‘Supah Doopah!'”

    • Mr. Max February 9, 2016 / 6:53 am

      Now every time I hear “Supah Doopah” I’m going to laugh hysterically!

  11. Juno February 8, 2016 / 5:12 pm

    NOMTOM, you are too much!

    • Juno February 8, 2016 / 5:13 pm

      I mean, a Monty Python reference, even!

  12. amyliz February 8, 2016 / 6:43 pm

    Hurray for the appearance of ‘tocks on this fantabulous site!

    “The humble buttock”? I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.
