Welcome Finicky Penguin, Guest Poster


[Folks, FinPeng has been around the blogospheart at least as long as I have, commenting and blogging with some of the best.  Several months ago he went scooters and abandoned the whole blogging thing…  and now he’s back, as a guest poster.

He’s got a different style of posting than we do here at Tacky Raccoons, but we’ll put a bowl of kibble in front of him and see how it works out.  So let’s all give a round of applesauce to Finicky Penguin!  YAY!  –Bunk]

Howdy, anyone who reads this first sentence or further. I’m Finicky Penguin, and you probably don’t know me from my old blog, Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Soda, now an archive of awesomeness. I’m not sure why I named it that. I never really liked The Beatles.

Anyway, if all went well, this is on the site and I’ll be making guest posts from time-to-time.

So, what is awesome?

  • Wikipedia says something awesome inspires awe.
  • Urban Dictionary calls it something Americans use to describe everything.
  • Wikipedia in Svenska says awesome kan ha flera betydelser.

But I, above bulleted lists, prefer to not put awesome into words. Instead, I prefer to show awesome in picture and video. Now, tell me this isn’t awesome:

Chainsaw Bear HiJinks 0701129

(Found it here.)

See that thing? It’s a bear. With chainsaw hands. You’d think it’s impractical, but look at it this way–

bears = awesome &

chainsaws = awesome, so

bear + chainsaw = double awesome (doubleawesome).

It can seriously dice your body so it can eat your fresh meatcubes. But what could make it more awesome? Sunglasses and a motorcycle, but if someone tried to construct a picture like that, their head would explode. I mean, there are several pictures of bears on motorcycles, but they lack the sunglasses and chainsaw hands, and that merits less awesome points than all three combined and the chainsaw picture, but more than the sunglasses.

This is the kind of stuff you get from me.

So anyways, hope to post again sometime. Sayonara.

    Welcome back. I still have Sgt. Pepper on the blogroll…I’m sentimental that way.

    I also drink a lot of whiskey. So, as Douglas Adams said, “Thanks for all the fish.”

    Dear Senor Bunk

    You (& we) are very fortunate that you have recruited such a distinguished non-flying Avian to your entertaining & thinking Blogge

    Is he a relation of one of Mr Batman’s friends ?

    With such an impressive Bodyguard, he only has to hint his views on anti-disestablishmentarianism to secure universal overt-agreement

    …. and he will presumably have no difficulty on obtaining suitably-sized logs for his eco-friendly wood-burning stove, if only we can persuade those Human Californians from causing so many forest-fires

    – especially as that kindly Herr Schwarzenneger is having to cut non-vital services like fire-fighting in order to reduce California’s deficit

    Yr obedient servant etc

    cbull– FinPeng has been quiet for a long while until I received his encrypted email and found a draft post steaming away on the back burner.

    Herr Eagle– You’ve been barraging me with barrages lately, but I’ll respond in sequential order to yours:

    Herr Penguin was not recruited, per se. We go back several years, the pre-blogging days, when we both were little more than snarky commenters on others works of bloggage.

    FinPeng has many faces and is known by many names, depending on the jurisdiction. Some know him as the Emperor of Awesome, and I would assume that Mr. Wayne has at least heard rumor of him.

    Regarding his views, they are in line with yours and mine, although they can wiggle a bit depending on the humidity.

    He is not from Kalifornia, so he can burn whatever he wants.

    And as for The Guv, Arnold still hasn’t figured out how to play the race card properly.

    ttillubc: I didn’t even know I was on your blogroll. I must be oblivious or something.

    qsE elgaE G: Who’s to say I’m not the Batman? Okay, I’m not Batman. Well, not the current one. I’d prefer to be the old one… with the tights.

    stturtS knuB: I’m doing the same thing you are!

    spooyma: Hello!

    Hello Mr. Penguin – I love penguins and have partied with your folks from Chile to the Falklands to Antarctica. But I can’t tell from the picture if you are a chinstrap or an erect-crested. Would you please share that information/clarificqation with your erstwhile readers?

    Good sir, I, in fact, am a macaroni penguin.
