The Alpacas Are Sprouting

Wednesday, 29 December 2010

With all the recent rains here, our spring alpacas are already poking their heads up through the southwestern tundra. Very endurable and self-fertilizing, alpacas are the new cash crop. It’s too late to plant this season, but plow them in around late March to early May and you’ll be glad you did.

Say, Have I Told You Of The Blog That I Made One Time That No One Knew About But Me Until This Post That Has Had No Views Except For The Unrecorded Ones By Myself?

Sunday, 23 August 2009

[FinPeng has had this post sitting around the TR “Almost-Done” file long enough. Back to our credo: “When in doubt, throw it out… there.” I have no idea what he’s talking about, but he’s still a good guy.  –Bunk]

Sombrero de llaves el toro se comió mi polvo.

Why, you ask? No, you don’t, but I’ll answer myself!

I get weird sometimes. But I won’t let this post get too out of hand. I’m going to focus on one subject and go with it. Therefore, I’m finding a somewhat uncommon noun from this random word generator. And the word is… “funicular.”

What do you know? It’s a railway that’s on an incline. I was on one of them once. I’m  not really sure why I liked it, but I thought it was pretty enjoyable.

And the word of the day is right on that sign!

And the word of the day is right on that sign!

(Forgot to put in the picture’s source link on the day I put the picture in. Picture no longer where it was on google image search. If you find the source, that’d be awfully helpful.)

And that’s all I’ve got to say on funiculars.

Why did I make this?

Anyway, the link you should follow is this one.

Official Announcement

Sunday, 9 August 2009

I, Finicky Penguin, have resumed somewhat regular posting at my blog. It’s like a stallion on steroids running into you at the speed of sound!



From here.

So stop on by. You’ve got nothing to lose. Oh wait, you do. It’s your mind.

Beards, Beards Everywhere. Beards, Beards… Made of Hair.

Thursday, 30 July 2009

I’m not a huge fan of beards attached to my face, but I tend to rank the beards of others on a scale of “Oh, it’s a beard” to “I WANT TO TOUCH THAT BEARD.”



He looks like the kind of guy who’d sit in that chair, running a comb through that beard.

But maybe that’s just me.

Of course, many other people have particularly wondrous beards, large and small, but there’s just one that I don’t even call a beard.

Not a beard

Not a beard

By now, you’re probably starting to question my sanity. I am, too. And this is just my second post. So now with my mental stability in question, let us continue with the very GOD OF BEARDDOM. I am, of course, referring to the late, great Billy Mays Jr.



Well, I think this basically wraps up my beard-talk. Go ahead to this website for top quality beards from history.

But wait! One more addition! How could I have forgotten Chuck Norris and Mr. T? HOW? I do believe if I had forgotten to mention them in the post at all, my head would explode upon the publishing date. I’m glad there’s that categories bar within the range of my sight.

Do Andy Rooney’s eyebrows count as beards?


Holy beard!

Holy beard!

Welcome Finicky Penguin, Guest Poster

Friday, 24 July 2009

[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.
