Hey, It’s Tocktober!

Teeny talio!

“We need butts Mike, lots of them.  We need bird tocks, bee tocks, corgi tocks and sheep tocks!  We need to be up to our ears in asses!”

Ooh, that’s gotta sting.

“In such perilous times, where the news day in and day out seems to weigh on us like Donald Trumps toupee we gotta have something to lift that weight, we gotta have something good to look forward to, right?  God God Mike, give us TOCKS!”

    Up to our ears in asses?

    • amylizs see October 6, 2016 / 9:25 am

      Yes, that’s my new favorite phrase! Hard to work into conversation, though! 🙂 (I am feeling a bit under the weather today so am staying home and will be checking in on teh cute frequently! )

      • allein 🐾 October 6, 2016 / 9:31 am

        Could also have gone with this one…

        • Faye October 6, 2016 / 10:02 am

          That’s a lot of tocks Allein!

          • allein 🐾 October 6, 2016 / 10:06 am

            A lot of asses, too!

            • Shan October 6, 2016 / 12:29 pm

              RFLOL Allein!

        • Murray C. October 6, 2016 / 10:46 am

          Allein, you’re such a buttinsky!😚(it’s what we love about you!)

          • allein 🐾 October 6, 2016 / 10:47 am

            I searched for a “butt” emoji and it gave me a peach. 🍑

            • Duckie 🐥 October 6, 2016 / 11:14 am

              Snerk!

          😂

      • JenDeyan October 6, 2016 / 9:31 am

        I hope you feel better. *virtual hug and warm fuzzies all around*

        • Amyliz October 6, 2016 / 9:48 am

          Thanks! I already feel so much better than I did last night that I *almost* feel guilty for staying home but work will survive without me for one day!

        • Murray C. October 6, 2016 / 10:47 am

          Same from me! Glad you’re feeling better today.

    • Gigi the cat lady October 6, 2016 / 10:16 am

      That made me laugh out loud in public Alein!

      • allein 🐾 October 6, 2016 / 10:17 am

        Yay! 😛

    • fkaWaldenPond October 6, 2016 / 10:47 am

      😀 Needed all of this as I couldn’t keep even water down yesterday and today fighting the dreaded office cold that starts with a brutal sore throat…

      • amyliz October 6, 2016 / 11:19 am

        Take care of yourself and get well soon!

        • fkaWaldenPond October 6, 2016 / 11:54 am

          Thanks Amyliz, you too! 🙂

          • DebG October 6, 2016 / 12:25 pm

            Hope you’re both back on your feet soon!

          • Murray C. October 6, 2016 / 5:53 pm

            Yes, TWO of you at once! Please get better soon.

            • fkaWaldenPond October 6, 2016 / 8:02 pm

              Thanks Debg & Murray C., gargling w salt water and lots of fluids; I am determined to overcome this before our Thanksgiving weekend.

  2. Brouhaha October 6, 2016 / 9:23 am

    ain’t no butts about it!

  3. JenDeyan October 6, 2016 / 9:30 am

    Can I nominate Carol H. for sainthood? Also, teeny, fuzzy hamster ‘tocks are my favorite.

    • DebG October 6, 2016 / 10:42 am

      I second both of Jendeyan’s points. “Up to my ears in asses” is now my go-to phrase. That, and “whip out that Mexican thing.”

    • Julie October 6, 2016 / 10:53 am

      Carol H. – that was easily the best “ode to butts” that I have ever read.

      Sir Mix A Lot, LL Cool J and J Lo have got nothing on you. 😀

      • Carol October 13, 2016 / 11:25 am

        I just saw this! Thank you so much for the compliments!

  4. Faye October 6, 2016 / 10:00 am

    Ahhh Hamster Butt to Zebra Butt. From the ridiculous to the sublime. 🐹🐝⚽️(As close to a Zebra as I could get.)

  5. Dana October 6, 2016 / 10:24 am

    Hooray! I almost forgot about Tocktober. Bring ’em on.

  6. Gigi the cat lady October 6, 2016 / 10:24 am

    I’m in the minority who does not go gaga for butts, I prefer the other end so I hope we’ll get a Nosevember. In the mean time I’ll try my best not to make an ass of myself so I says : Bring on the tocks!!! 😄😄

  7. Murray C. October 6, 2016 / 10:51 am

    That hamster butt is one of the most darling sights I’ve ever seen. And the little feetsies! SO out of proportion for that rotund little body.

  8. LunaChickFringe October 6, 2016 / 12:05 pm

    Not gonna lie. I do miss Tocktober. I always looked forward to the post that was set to that Bonnie Raitt tune.

  9. Mikeyfur October 6, 2016 / 1:04 pm

    SO happy to see Tocktober postings!!! The hamster teeny talio is my hands down (tails up?) favorite.

    • Murray C. October 6, 2016 / 5:55 pm

      😂X10. I’ll bet when that lid came off there was a cloud of Raccoon expletives that burst forth.

      • Not That Mike The Other Mike October 6, 2016 / 6:28 pm

        “And I didn’t even get my head stuck in the good trash, either! I got stuck in the freaking recycle bin, fer crying out loud!”

        • Murray C. October 6, 2016 / 9:31 pm

          Similar thought here – whatever obsessed him/her to do that???? Hope he didn’t have his head stuck inside a container. That would’ve added insult to injury.

    • Faye October 6, 2016 / 10:58 pm

      Environmentally (un)conscious raccoon. Into recycling just a bit much.

  11. Flowerfanatic October 6, 2016 / 5:47 pm

    Thanks for remembering Tocktober!! I’d almost forgotten about it. And Nosevember will be great to see also!!

  12. jlamusings October 6, 2016 / 5:48 pm

    Everything about this post and the comments wins the internets, methinks.
    A+++++++++++++

  13. Carol October 10, 2016 / 7:10 pm

    Oh my gosh, I totally missed this! Thank you Mike for posting this, it made my day!

      • Carol October 10, 2016 / 7:34 pm

        BWAHHAHAHAHAAAAAA!

      • Faye October 10, 2016 / 8:48 pm
