Thoughtful Skink

A skink walks into a bar…

Mike took this great photo of a little skink  peeking over our garden wall (for the difference between “skinks” and “skanks” click here). I was inspired.

    Ha! I love it! And if poor Charles Brown lived by me, he would be thinking,”Why is that crazy woman with the Velcro roller in her hair running out into the yard wielding a flyswatter yelling and screaming at that groundhog?”

    I NEED him on that wall.

      You know, I JUST realized “charles brown” = Charlie Brown. Weird how things your head happen when you don’t even realize it…

    A skink walks into a bar, bartender says “Salamander Brandy?”, skink responds “I’m a skink you skunk and my name’s Roberta”.

    That’s a really good picture. I think the skink was looking out for your dog. Our skinks/lizards/salamanders/tiny reptiles peek around for Buddy the golden retriever, too.

      I am physically in pain…

      We take pictures with the phone all the time and they are ALWAYS blurry (probably because of the DTs) but this one was perfect!

      I think even the skinks know our dog is a wuss.

    Love them all, Amy. Deadeye Dirk really got me!

    I also love the last one because we always have little critters creeping about on our patio fence. We do feel that we NEED them!

      I think they’re so cute… this one has a really thick tail too so he must be the smart guy – no birds he had to break it off for to escape!

    Oh, that I were a tiny, cute skink!!! We have anoles down here in Houston. They are very entertaining and make great dinner guests. My fave is the dinosaur Billy one. Kudos to Mike for the pic. Hey, has Mike done the creepy office guy thing lately? That was really something.

      I met some assholes in Houston once…oh ANOLES! Sorry. 🙂

      Creepy office guy shows up at least once a week, though sometimes he gets lost in all his other characters…

    Skink, skank, skunk…oh, that’s the one I have. I’d rather have skinks! Can you get a picture when Billy becomes a dinosaur? That would be cool…!

    I had no idea what a skink was, or that they even existed for that matter. But I am from the Midwest. 🙁 All we really have here is snowstorms, road construction, and definitely skanks. Skanks Galore!

    Thanks for the skink quotes. I needed a laugh today.

    ‘Someday I’ll be a dinosaur…’ is the best one. And there are some damn funny ones on here. Very Farside.
    Though I have always been partial to the name Seth for reptiles…

    I love the Geico one, and I can’t believe you didn’t put together that Charles Brown is Charlie Brown!

    You know what? Maybe you can’t handle the truth!
