    even though Tonmo numbers have swelled nicely to 2464, does it not concern our benevolent leader Tony :notworth: that there are 8999997536 weirdos not signed up ?
    (assuming population is 9 billion in US billions not UK billions as it makes a fair difference)

    no, THIS is odd..

    Come and listen to a story bout a ceph named Squid
    A deep sea dweller, barely kept his family fed,
    Then one day he was spittin', about to heave,
    And down through the sea came a bubblin' Steve...

    'Food that is'..'Marine gold'..'New Zealand tea'..

    Well, the first thing you know ol' Squid's awaitin' there,
    The Kinfolk said "Squid! Move away from there!"
    Said "Discov'ry Channel is the place you ought to be!"
    They loaded up their beaks and moved to Auckland city.

    Food, that is..Swimmin' pools..Documentary stars..

    Well, now its time to say goodbye to Squid and all his kin.
    And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly divin' in.
    You're all invited back a gain to this locality
    To have a heapin' helpin' of their tentacality

    Squidbilly that is..Set a spell..Take your arms off..

    Y'all dive back now, y'hear?


    nah, you're right... we're ALL odd... :P

    Not mine I'm afraid........they're all used to assorted weirdness from me! (Like the year I included a Moroteuthis tentacle hook in my cards from Santa Claws....... :roll: )

    Weirdos? Odd? Obsessed? I.... I don't understand. Are you saying that... I mean...

    Doesn't everyone love octopuses and squid? Cute, cuddly-wuddly cephalopods, with their high intelligence and their bioluminescence and camouflaging? And thier gnashing beaks and venomous, tissue-disintegrating secretions?

    If not, what will they say about our tentacles? I mean, all you guys do have tentacles, too, right?? :goofysca:

    Hmm... The Otter News Magazine Online... The Oxen News Magazine Online.... The Ostrich News Magazine Online... :mrgreen:

    somewhere under the desert sky
    Well, I love her
    But I love cephs
    I spend all day out in this desert,
    But parts are all I find.
    Well, today she met me at the door
    Said I would have to choose
    If I hit those fossil beds today
    She'd be packin all her things
    And, she'd be gone by noon...

    Well, I'm gonna miss her
    When I get home
    I'm out here on this outcrop
    And I'm digging in the shale
    I'm sure it'll hit me
    When I walk through that door tonight
    Hey, I'm gonna miss her
    Oh, lookie there
    an ammonite!

    There's a chance,
    That if I hurry
    I can beg her to stay
    But the shale is soft, and the weather's perfect
    There's no tellin what I might find today

    So, I'm gonna miss her
    When I get home
    I'm out here in the desert
    And I'm diggin in the sun
    I'm sure it'll hit me
    When I walk through that door tonight
    Hey, I'm gonna miss her
    Oh, lookie there
    an ammonite!
