Soft and Sweet

image (8)I came across a badly injured rabbit in the road today and it looked like it still had some fight left, so I hopped (pun deliciously and obnoxiously intended) out of my car, scooped it up, wrapped it up in a fuzzy, purple robe, and took it home.  

There will be no inquiries regarding why I was rolling around with a spare robe in my car; I like comfort, sue me.

Old girl was riding shotgun so I could keep tabs on the situation, and also because she called it before I could open the door.  I love animals, but I am so horrifically aware of the movements of tiny, erratic ones (like BATS, God Forbid!)  and I was mildly petrified that she was going to hyper-animate and attack me at any given moment.  I  sucked it up and drove home as fast as humanly possible.

As of now, she resides in my kitchen with ample water and a Golden Corral’s worth of veggies, waiting for fate to make its decision.  …I hope she makes it; either way, she’s too precious not to share.

A Tirade For The Turtle Man

This afternoon I took a short- but ultimately inspiring- stroll out to my humble back porch.

After having bonked my head on a left over deer leg on the way down there, I soon found myself spacing out in a lawn chair, smoking a cigarette and ruminating on the fact that my back yard looks like a real piece of “Live Action.”

…And that’s when I encountered thoughts of The Turtle Man…

The legend, himself

The legend, himself

” Yee, yee, yee, yee, YEE!!!! ”  This man is Amazing!!  Old boy tools around rural Kentucky plunging his mitts into snake infested death traps and swimming around in shit swamps looking for Shit-Snappers to pluck out of peoples’ homes and land with his bare ass hands!

—And not just Shit-Snappers, either; this man is a FULL Critter Bustin’  Squad!  (Bustin’ Makes Him FeeeeL GooOooD!)

I’m talkin’ Opossums, Raccoon, Foxes, Bobcats, Zebras- you Kentucky-name it!  I have seen this man rub down his own face and entire body with living, flapping, nasty ass chickens just to neutralize his scent…

And for all this, he gets a handsome compensation of……….  JACK SQUAT!!!  Let me break down the client payments from a few episodes of the show:

Big Ass Snake Removal of a M#therf#cking TOILET SNAKE For an Elderly Lady  :  $35 + an apple pie
Double Skunk Removal Including Crew, Head Protection & Stench Blankets  :  $22+ basket of potatoes
Removal of a Shit Snapper From a Man’s Family Pond & Giving Personalized Lessons to the Man on How to Turtle Hunt for Himself  :   $0
Raccoon Removal From a Makeshift Well Which he Repelled Down into Using Only a Broken Ladder & Got Bitten By an Albino Raccoon in the Process  :  $35

Are you freaking serious?!!  This is elephant ass!!!   …And on that note, at the rate it’s going, I wouldn’t be surprised if Ringling called him in next week to do their elephant colonoscopies for a couple sticks of sugar free gum.  “Thanks, Turt; we owe ya one.  Please accept this pack of Nabs as a token of our gratitude.  …You enjoy those, buddy- don’t eat ’em all at once!”

You're welcome.

You’re welcome.

After a skunk spray, it takes more than $22 just to get smellin’ right again!  — And old boy bathes in rain barrels and TUPPERWARE!  He couldn’t even eat the bonus potatoes- he had to use them in his tupperware bath to soak up the skunk smell!!!  Egregious.

Have MERCY, people!  The man has NO TEETH for GOD’S SAKE!!!!  Come on!!  Help a backwoods brother out!!!
