I Went Phishing…

Well I am new to twitter. A friend tweeted  me a link to something I would be interested, I dutifully browsed there on my Nexus.  Next thing I knew everyone on my twitter list was being bombarded by spam about weight loss, scary blogs, and links to more phishing sites. Oops. I had fallen for the oldest new trick on the intertubes. My twitter account had become a spam spewing tweet fest. Many of my more alert tweeters let me know right away, and sorting it out was painful because the center of excellence I was working at blocks all social media. However the experience inspired my to get tethering up to speed on my nexus, create a phishing for spalmon pic, two giggley quotes, and one found piece of strangeness.

“the twats have stopped tweaking this twits tweets”

and

“I went phishing and caught some spalmon”

 

 

 

 

Zeller’s Targetted

Zellers has been bought by Target. This worries me because I have fallen in lunch with the gravy chicken sandwich. There is no better lunch than being by slow moving old people and gnoshing on gravy slathered chicken.

Dear Target, please don’t take away my chicken sandwich.

It is also important that we learn the proper pronunciation of the word Target when shopping.

Here’s Some Interesting Sh*t

Our led lights on the tree out front of the Staircase stopped working. Turns out that some dog dropping was being kept warm by the extension cord, which grew a massive fungus ball, which ate through the insulation and shorted out the lights. This is a pic of someone taking a pic of the fungus ball. I am too posh to take a pic of pooh, so I am taking a pic of someone taking a pic of a fungus ball that is hiding a pooh. Sorry I was just feeling iterative.  Pooh has inspired some awesome rants in the past. This one just knocked our lights out.

Brazilian Beaver

The Famous Canadian beaver (Castor Canadensis) is the second largest rodent in the world next to the Capybara. While the Capybara is thriving in it’s South American climates, like Venezuela, its much smaller rodent cousin Castor Brazilensis is not faring as well. Unrelenting clear cutting along the Amazon in Southern Brazil  is threatening the habitat of this much smaller rodent. Like the Canadian beaver the Capybara is able to manage a wider range climate conditions, however the Castor Brazilensis is much more vulnerable to temperature. Efforts to re-establish Castor Brazilensis in cooler climates have failed. None of the transplanted Brazilian beavers survived the winter in the Washington State’s Olympic National Park. Clearly this charming, industrious and vulnerable creature can only survive in its native habitat within Brazil’s wet lands. Clear cutting exposes beavers to harsh penetrating climates. It is time for beaver lovers everywhere to stand up and push for harder regulations in Brazil’s wet lands.
