Out of Ethiopia

While doing research on ants for a new anthill condo cleaning business I’d been contemplating, I got bored and abandoned the idea. They’re on their own.

Because I had already spent 10 seconds on a nature website, http://www.nature.ca/ I thought I might as well have a look around.

I was very upset to learn that wild ass is nearing extinction! Why a ‘nature’ site is talking about the perils of the dating world is beyond me.

There are reportedly 2000 wild ass in Ethiopia and 250 in Somalia. Correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t these generally thought of as hungry countries? Should someone consider moving that ass around? Or at least recheck the numbers? Or book Alex Trebek for a telethon?

Nature is so messy. I hope I didn’t get any on me.

You need to migrate down south for the wild asses, my friend. We're not going extinct down here.

But sorry to hear that you abandoned your anthill condo cleaning idea so quickly ...

have you ever heard of a small town called wawa? there is tons of wild ass there and they seem to be breeding in record numbers. you can't drive down main street without seeing 17 baby strollers ensuring a healthy repopulation of wild ass.

forget ethiopia.... wild ass is alive and well here in ontario, canada!!!

Luckily there are many films and pictures of wild ass that can be downloaded off the Internet.

Dude, you've resorted to writing about eating ass???

Beth said...

That gets you kicked off Blogger, doesn't it?

Dale eats ass! ha ha ha (just kidding pal, don't get mad)

Yes, nature is messy. The other day I actually heard myself say, "fuck off nature!" because there are so many little worms in the trees and they get on you. YUCK!

You're all very sick but funny people.

I think I'll go back to my Aunt cleaning business idea.

justacoolcat said...

Ahhh, spoil sport, switching back after 10 seconds of nature.

I think you should get your 300 dollars back.

Wild Ass- We used to call my friend Gayle that, well until she started waxing. Now she made us stop...

BTW- thanks for stopping by. Became a Nina Hagen fan back in 84 when parents accidently gave me the "Fearless" record (yikes it was indeed a record) for Christmas. I think they were meaning to buy me the Nena (of 99 luft ballons fame) Good thing they got it wrong.

I knew there was something I wanted to tell you! Nature? Has alcoholism. Last night we had dinner outside. Two people wound up with gnats in their wine. A spider tried to crawl up the stem of my glass. I had to wack it away.

Nature = drunk mess

Beth said...

So, Dale, you cleanin' the aunt this weekend, or chasing wild asses?

Creepy said...

What's with you and bugs lately Chelene??? Did they secretly plot your demise? I sense that skullduggery is afoot...

anne altman said...

asses are wild

chelene said...

I'm a bug magnet and I'm very, very weary of their love.

Dale said...

You're all still sick and funny. I thank my lucky ass. Shutup.
