Saturday Surprise — Fun Critter Facts ‘n Pics!

Today’s Saturday Surprise is … well, just a hodgepodge of animal facts, some with pictures and a few accompanied by short video clips.  I thought critters would be more likely to bring a smile than humans at this juncture.  I hope these provide you with some interesting new info and bring a smile to your face to kick off the weekend!


The male seahorse goes through pregnancy and gives birth to babies. They are the only animal on earth where the male carries the baby rather than the female.

The male seahorse has a pouch on its stomach in which to carry babies—as many as 2,000 at a time.

Roosters prevent themselves from going deaf due to their own loud crowing, by tilting their head backs when they crow, which covers their ear canal completely, serving as a built-in ear-plug.

A study showed that their crowing averages over 100 decibels, which is roughly the same as running a chainsaw. 

Otters “hold hands” while sleeping, so they don’t float away from each other.

And it’s super-cute. Look.

A common garden snail has 14,000 teeth.

Their microscoptic teeth are called radula, and some species actually have over 20,000 teeth.

The pangolin is able to roll up into an armour-plated ball, so lions can’t eat them.

A Blue Whales tongue can weigh as much as a car, or a small adult elephant.

A Blue Whales tongue can weigh approx. 2.7 tonnes, or 6,000 – 8,000 pounds (2,720 – 3,630 kg).

Axolotl are able to regenerate lost limbs and body organs.

Mexican walking fish can regrow the same limb up to 5 times, and even regenerate parts of its brain.

An ostrich legs are so powerful that their kicks can kill a lion.

Or a human! Each two-toed foot has a long, sharp claw – making them formidable weapons. Animals often end up running away from the large bird.

The Japanese Spider Crab has the longest leg span of any arthropod.

From the tip of one claw to the other can be as long as almost 4m! Japanese spider crabs have 10 legs stretching out from a central body, giving it its spider like appearance. They live deep in the oceans south of Japan.

Emperor penguins are the world’s biggest penguins, and they trek 50–120 km (31–75 m) across the Antarctic to reach breeding colonies.

The impressive emperor penguins reach 100 cm (39 in) in length and weigh 22 to 45 kg (49 to 99 lb). They breed during winter, when they emerge from their more natural habitat in the ocean to trek long distances over treacherous ice.

The lesula, discovered in 2007, has giant human like eyes and a blue bottom.

This relatively newly discovered monkey lives in the Congo. The lesula eyes are very distinctive because of their human-like appearance, as are their bright blue bums.

Honeypot ants swell up to a huge size with food.

Honeypot ants have to be seen to be believed. During wet season, certain ants consume huge amounts of nectar, making their abdomens swell up to the size of a grape. Then, during dry season, they provide the other ants with food by throwing the nectar back up again. Yum!

I’m sorry … I just couldn’t resist this one …

The Donald Trump caterpillar looks identical to the ex-president’s hair.

This species of caterpillar, prior to 2016, was known as the Flannel Moth Caterpillar (Megalopyge opercularis). It gained popularity as it is very furry and bright orange, giving it an uncanny resemblance to Trump’s hair (wig?). This ‘fur’ however, is actually composed of multiple venomous ‘hairs’. Grabbing hold of one of these caterpillars is a painful experience.

And that’s all I have for this Saturday, my friends!  I hope you all have a nice relaxing weekend and that the temperatures aren’t unbearably hot where you are.

The Jolly Monday That Almost Wasn’t

Good Monday morning friends!  Y’know … sometimes Jolly is really hard to find.  I was just about to give up on even posting a Jolly Monday, but I finally found Jolly and Joyful hiding in the clothes hamper upstairs!  I dragged them back downstairs and reminded them just how important it is, especially in these very trying times, to help our friends start their week with a smile, or perhaps even a chuckle.  And so, we all rallied to the cause and hope we can help start the week on a happy note for you all.  Now, Joyful is still a bit on the sad side, so I told her to keep the buffet simple this morning, but she insisted she was in the mood for comfort food.  Grab a plate … er, a bowl … and let’s find some things to smile about, shall we?

I made dis one on account of it’s Pride Month!!!


Jolly was over at Phil’s Phun looking for some ‘toons when he called me and said, “Gwammie … come quick … you jus’ gotta see dis”.  So, I hopped on my broomstick and rode over to Phil’s where Jolly showed me some funny music-themed puns that Phil had.  Well, naturally I had to bring a few home to share with you guys …


Hi … it’s me, Jolly!  Yeah … me ‘n Joyful wuz hiding ’cause we didn’t feel vewy Jolly or Joyful, but Gwammie reminded us that we have a duty to you guys … and we luv you lots, so we’re doin’ our best to make you smile.  Anyway, Gwammie gave me “cartoon duty” and dis is what I came up with … I hope dey make you smile …



In the mood for some funny animal-themed memes?


And of course we cannot conclude Jolly Monday without a cute critter video, now can we?  Lotsa love in this one …


And so begins another week.  I don’t know what dramas and traumas this week will bring for us all, but at least we started it out on the right foot and hopefully with smiles and chuckles.  Keep safe and have a good week, and please, my friends, remember to share those gorgeous smiles I see on your faces … we all need as many smiles as we can get!  In case you run out … there’s a basketful of smiles at the door … feel free to drop in any time and grab a few.  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

Saturday Surprise — 1917

As I’m sure you can understand, my mood is dark tonight, and try as I might I could not come up with anything original and fun for Saturday Surprise.  So, I went looking at some of my earliest Saturday Surprise posts and found this one that was fun to prepare, and everyone seemed to enjoy it, so … time to redux again, eh?  This one dates back to August of 2017, before many of you were even aware of Filosofa’s Word!


I am sorry I did not get a Saturday Surprise post scheduled last Saturday as I had promised, but I simply ran out of both time and energy before my trip.  One of the suggestions for Saturday Surprise posts came from Gronda, who suggested time travel – what was it like when …?

The year is 1917, and I think you will find life was just a little different back then.

If you woke up in the morning, you could consider yourself lucky, for the average life expectancy in 1917 was 48.4 years for men and 54 years for women.  Once out of bed, you likely built up a fire in the woodstove to cook breakfast and heat water to wash your face with, for only about 24% of homes had electricity.  Then, if you were a man, you likely headed out the door to either walk to work or take the streetcar. The cost of a car was a mere $400, but since you likely only earned about $0.22 per hour, it is unlikely you owned one. However, 1917 was the first year that traffic counts in New York showed more cars than horses. Oh, and if you did own a car, you would want to watch out for those speed limits which were 10 mph in most cities!

streetIf you were a woman, most likely you did not work outside the home, but if you did, you were probably a elementary or high school teacher. School boards preferred female teachers not only because they were seen as more loving, but also because they would do what male principals told them while accepting less than a man’s wage. The world literacy rate was only 23%, and only some 6% graduated from high school, as most dropped out to either help on the family farm or enter the workforce.

It is doubtful that you owned your home, but if you did, it probably cost around $5,000 (about 14% of what a new car costs today!).  In fact, you probably lived with one or more older generation, if they were lucky enough to outlive the average life expectancy.  Oh, and speaking of the elderly … there was no Social Security, Medicare, etc. Since the women were outliving the men by some six years, widows moved in with their adult children and children lived at home until they got married, at the average age of 21. Made for a crowded household sometimes.

Now, on the weekend, if you could afford it, you might take your family to the beach for the day.  Beach attire was just a tad different back then …

A trip to the grocery … remember you are only earning $0.22 per hour … could be a difficult proposition with food prices so high. You would have to work three hours just to buy a pound of butter and a dozen eggs!

Bread (1-lb loaf)                $0.07
Butter (lb)                           $0.36
Eggs (dozen)                      $0.34
Ground coffee (lb)           $0.30
Potatoes (10 lbs)              $0.15

And speaking of food … 1917 saw the invention of the hamburger bun, and thus the hamburger was born.  Today, the average American consumes 3 hamburgers per week!  My family and I are definitely below average on this one. And to go with that hamburger … it was in 1917 that Coca-Cola introduced the formula that is still popular today. And where did you buy that food?  The first supermarket opened just the year before, in September 1916 – Piggly Wiggly.  No, I am not calling you a piggly wiggly … that was the name of the store … honest!  Actually, I think these are still around in the south.

piggly-wiggly.jpgIt is doubtful that you were among the 8% of people who had a telephone, and by telephone I mean

phone.jpg

Not …

cell-phone

One person who could afford a telephone in 1917 was John D. Rockefeller who became the world’s first billionaire on September 20th.

Not everything was rosy in 1917, for it was on April 6th that the U.S. entered into what would become known as World War I.

War-nyt-April 6.jpgThough women would not get the right to vote for another three years, they did score in 1917 when Jeannette Rankin, of Montana, became the first woman to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives!!!

Today we should be grateful for Mr. Gideon Sundback for his 1917 invention of the … zipper! Early on, zippers were mainly used on boots and pouches that held tobacco. It would be another 20 years before the fashion industry began to use zippers on clothing. So … how did pants stay … oh, never mind … not going there.

zipper.jpegAnd what music were Americans listening to on their ipods … er, um phonographs?

phonograph.jpgNora Bayes had the number one selling hit record titled “Over There”.

A sampling of the lyrics:

“Over there, over there

Sent the word, send the word over there

That the Yanks are coming

The ear drums rum-tumming

Everywhere

So prepare, say a prayer

Sent the word, send the word to beware

We’ll be over, we’re coming over

And we won’t come back till it’s over

Over there”

Others in the year’s top ten included:

At the Darktown Strutter’s Ball by Original Dixieland Jazz Band

Poor Butterfly by Victor Military Band

For Me and My Gal by Van and Schenck

And what were you watching on television in 1917?  Nothing, for television was still 10 years in the future.

Most of us have said, at one time or another, how we would love to go back to a simpler time.  We get frustrated with the hustle and bustle, with our electronic toys, and long for “the good ol’ days”. But when you think about it, life was hard (and short) 100 years ago.  I think I shall remain in this, the 21st century!

I hope you enjoyed today’s Saturday Surprise as much as I enjoyed writing it.  Quite honestly, I have been in a royal funk for a couple of days, but once I started researching for this post, I found I was having tons of fun!  Thank you, Gronda for this marvelous idea … one which we shall do again soon!

A several hours worth of cartoon roundup. An interesting mix. Hugs

I’m still growling over this morning’s news, so I thought rather than writing an angst-filled post for this afternoon, we could all use a bit of humour, thanks to our friend Scottie! Thank you, Scottie!!!

The Week’s Best Cartoons 6/18

Yet another week and more of the best political ‘toons from our friend TokyoSand over at Political Charge.  Time was that these would make me laugh … and I still take my hat off to the great talents of these cartoonists … but today they make me want to cry more than laugh.  Thank you, TS, for all your hard work!

Below is a small sample … be sure to head over to TokyoSand’s place to see … the rest of the story!

See all the ‘toons at Political Charge!!!

Jolly Father’s Day Monday!

Good Monday Morning and a Happy Day-After-Father’s-Day to all the great dads out there!  Yes, yes … I know that Father’s Day was yesterday, but I wanted to be ‘fashionably late’, as they say.  And anyway, I thought that rather than some droll retelling of the history of the day, it would be more fun to dedicate an entire Jolly Monday to dads, ‘cause most of the ones I know appreciate a bit of humour (not to mention bacon).  And since this Jolly Monday is dedicated to Father’s Day, you will find ‘dad-foods’ on the buffet this morning!  So, grab a snack and let’s have some dad-type humour to start our week with a smile or a chuckle.



Gwammie put me in charge of findin’ some ‘toons an’ memes about dads ‘n stuff, so here’s what I came up with … I hope you likes ‘em …


I went in search of some dad-related jokes …

  • I asked my dad to help me with a math problem. He said: “Don’t worry; this is a piece of cake.” I said: “No, it’s a math problem.”

  • Being a great father is like shaving. No matter how good you shaved today, you have to do it again tomorrow.

  • Dad: You’ll never amount to anything because you procrastinate. Son: Oh yeah? Just you wait!

  • Dad Wisdom: I know what I’m getting for Father’s Day. Last night my daughter asked me what size aftershave I wear.

  • Dad: Hi, Sweetie, how was school today? Daughter: You can read all about it on my Facebook, Dad!

  • Dear Dad, $chool i$ really great. I am making lot$ of friend$ and $tudying very hard. With all my $tuff, I $imply can’t think of anything I need, $o if you would like, you can ju$t $end me a card, a$ I would love to hear from you. Love, Your $on
    • Dear Son, I kNOw that astroNOmy, ecoNOmics, and oceaNOgraphy are eNOugh to keep even an hoNOr student busy. Do NOt forget that the pursuit of kNOwledge is a NOble task, and you can never study eNOugh. Love, Dad

  • Dad Wisdom: Why, in a country of free speech, are there phone bills?

  • Dad: Let me see your report card. Son: I don’t have it. Dad: Why not? Son: My friend just borrowed it. He wants to scare his parents.

And … we even found a special critter video of a tiger cub meeting her father for the first time …


I hope all you dads had a wonderful day yesterday yesterday and that you enjoyed our efforts on this Jolly Monday!  Keep safe and have a good week ahead!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly & Joyful!

Saturday Surprise Tidbits

I couldn’t settle on a topic for this week’s Saturday Surprise, so I’m just tossing in a few odds ‘n ends I came across that made me smile, in hopes they will do the same for you!

My husband has a tendency to move slower on the weekends, and knowing we had alot of errands to get done, I went into the store looking for him, annoyed. I found him, reading ingredients to an elderly man and helping him calculate ratios for what he needed, because he couldn’t do it himself anymore. And listening to him tell stories of his acres of land nearby. I forgot about errands, our time crunch, our tasks…and thought man, if we could all just take a little time to help eachother with just the littlest things, how good we would all feel. And remembered that I snagged a good one.                                                                                                                                                          

Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well.                                                                                                                                                          

“I was waiting for my prescription at Walgreen, and I noticed this man is picking up his medicines.. He is asking how much they are, and starting to get nervous about the price. The total was $170 and the pharmacist asked if he would rather only get one month of his medicines instead of 3. “THIS lady next to me, walks up to them and says: NO, he is getting all three months and pays for his bill. I was walking out of there with tears in my eyes, what an amazing woman…”

I promised David a funny bird video earlier this week, and this one is guaranteed to bring at least a smile, if not a full-throttle laugh!

Now, my friends, it’s Saturday so go have some fun, relax after a long hard week!

Tuesday’s gone with the wind – a few more windy remarks

I think that sometimes when we can make our points with humour, they are more likely to be listened to and pondered. Our friend Keith has made a few points today with a bit of ‘windy’ humour and it makes for a fun post! Overall, Keith … like all of us … just doesn’t want to see our nation become “Dust in the Wind” 😉 Thank you, Keith, for a fun and at the same time thoughtful post.

musingsofanoldfart

Using one of my favorite Lynyrd Skynyrd songs, “Tuesday’s gone” one more time, let me offer some more windy remarks. This is in deference to many politicians who tend to be big bags of wind with contrived and exaggerated truths.

  • I know everyone is anticipating the Roe v Wade impacting ruling from the Supreme Court, but another major ruling will affect jurisdiction over corporations, making it easier on these entities to cut corners. I have said before, the primary reason Republicans like conservative judges is not things like Roe v Wade, it is to help companies avoid having to be held liable for their misdeeds. Everything else is window-dressing to that primary purpose.

  • The Wizard of Oz-like actions of the most recent former president is underway to get people not to look behind the January 6 insurrection curtain. If they do, they will see a person pulling everyone’s levers to…

Jolly {HOT} Monday!

Good Monday morning, friends!  I have lived in this area for about 35 years, and in all that time I have never known of the temperatures to go beyond 92° (F) and those days are rare, maybe 3 or 4 of them in a year.  But this coming week, it is predicted to reach 98° two days — I think Tuesday and Wednesday — and just the thought of it has left me gasping for air.  But, guess what else?  Go on, you can probably guess quite easily.  Yep, last Thursday our air-conditioning stopped working!  We live in a townhouse apartment complex, so we immediately called maintenance, they came, thought they had fixed it, but by Thursday night it was not working.  Long story short, they have been here four times now, have recharged the heat pump, replaced a part or two, and it still isn’t working.  Now, since I have a heart problem and severe asthma (no comments about me being a heavy smoker, please) the combination of the heat and broken a/c is a disaster for me.  The maintenance dude promised yesterday that he will be back today and “get this #ucker working, one way or another” … fingers crossed!  Why is it always the hottest or coldest day of the year that the a/c or heat goes out?  Kismet?  Sigh.  Anyway, it’s Monday and we’re determined to bring a smile to your face to start out the week!  Since it is so hot, Joyful didn’t want to add to the heat by cooking, so she pulled together some cold finger food type snacks for you, and Jolly went to Starbucks for your coffee!  So, grab a plate and let’s find some laughs, shall we?



Jolly helped me find some funny signs this weekend that we thought you would get a kick out of …


And we have ‘toons, ‘toons, ‘toons to make you smile!


And just a few fun memes …

Talk about poetic justice!!!


And last, but never least, how ’bout a cute critter video?


Well, friends, I’m sad to say that the time has come for each of us to get on with our Monday, whether it be to a job, blogging, or writing the great American novel!  For me, it will be waiting for the maintenance dude with fingers crossed!  We hope you have a safe and happy week, and remember to share those beautiful smiles I see on your faces!  Love ‘n hugs from Filosofa, Jolly and Joyful!

The Week’s Best Cartoons 6/11

There always seems to be one topic at the forefront that gets the most attention from the political cartoonists, and this week it is no surprise that it’s the televised hearings of the House Committee that has been tasked with investigating the events leading up to and during the attempted coup on January 6, 2021.  And the second most popular topic, again understandably, is the gun insanity that has swept this nation.  As she does so brilliantly every week, TokyoSand has gone through them and selected the ‘pick of the litter’ for our cartoon viewing pleasure.  Please do click on the link at the end of this post to see all the cartoons, for what I have here is but a small sampling.  Thank you once again, TS!


Here’s how editorial cartoonists covered the start of the January 6th Committee hearings.

be sure to check out the rest of the ‘toons!
