Clara from Cleveland Sent Us A Great Wombat-Inspired Graphic She Found. We Then Tried to Ruin the Idea. This is What We Do.

from Clara...

from Cal...

Okay, so in the comments below we learned
from Ruby in Richmond that the first image
is not a wombat, but the some other
dirty fucking rat-like creature,
you know, like someone from Sigma Phi Epsilon.

  1. Sorry to spoil the fun, but that first picture is a capybara, not a wombat. (Maybe the person who made the graphic thought, "Rodents of unusual size? I don't believe they exist.)

    1. Chupacabra? Cool. I thought they were mythical, or mythological, or like a unicorn, rare.

  2. Ruby, if something wasn't wrong, where would the misery be?

    Good to see you on the page again!

    1. The update below the images will easily be the funniest thing I read today.

    1. This is why I like to represent all living things as stick figures.

    2. Just edit the wikipedia page on capybaras to say that they're a species of wombat. Problem solved (at least for a minute or two).

  4. Badgers? We ain't got no badgers. We don't need no badgers. I don't have to show you any stinkin' badgers!

    Wait . . . what . . . what do you mean wrong animals? Wrong order? Dammit. This is the last time I let students do my background research.

    1. What? You mean they're not all members of the smallfurbearingcritteridae?

    2. You're forgetting the branch pelletpooperii.

    3. Which would include rabbits and deer, and perhaps also a cat I once knew (who apparently had atypically narrow intestines). I've cleaned more than a few pelletpooperii cages in my day.

  6. Good to be back. I read everything, though I rarely comment. But I'm reading.

    Why was this post different? Capybaras just happen to be my favorite animal. It's the largest rodent in the world. The LARGEST RODENT IN THE WORLD, people. You don't evolve to be the LARGEST RODENT IN THE WORLD just to get confused with a wombat.

    It's like finally achieving tenure, only to have a student walk in and say, "Oh, you must be the new adjunct."

    Okay, so it's not like that at all. But if you've never seen a capybara, do yourself a favor and find the nearest zoo. They're like giant guinea pigs.

    1. Many students don't know from adjuncts. They's say, "Oh, you must be the new teacher."
