Random Asides

Of pies, prophets, and tarsiers

So I was checking out the incoming links to Skepchick, as I am wont to do. And what should I come across but the best story about having an inappropriate conversation in public EVER. I don’t want to spoil it but I will say that the conversation was about this video at Pandagon about Texas sex toy laws which I posted about in a previous Quickies.

And to round things out, here’s a video of dramatic!Tarsier found via Zooillogix. I feel like the tarsier’s experession goes well with the above story.

    Don’t watch it too much; it is attempting to hypnotize you.

    That tarsier is way better than the dramatic ground hog.

    I dunno, MAJeff… This one has that subtle cuteness factor building up to an air of dignity in ridiculousness, but the groundhog has the element of surprise and that sinister, mocking grin. What is he plotting behind those eyes?

    And you just can’t beat that camera work…
