I saw an armadillo with a Chinese menu in his hand
Walking through the streets of Soho in the rain
He was looking for a place called Lee Ho Fook's
Going to get himself a big dish of beef chow mein
Armadillos of Chicago again.

No one ever liked my genuine armadillo hat, and many of them told me it was the worst invention ever.

Am I the only one who read armadillo as amontillado?

Global warming!!! Oh noes!!!

Aren't those guys plague carriers? Or something just as nasty?

Ever hit one of those things in a low riding car? It's a trip, man. Like running over ballast at 65 mph.

I don't know shiat about armadillos, but there's nothing like a good eye-popper to get me up in the morning!

Nice headline, Subby

Mmmmmmm, forget the Turduckhen, we're having Armadillo in Cream Sauce for Christmas this year!

Al Gore. Please report ot the main conference room to receive your apology from the American people.

I guess we still have that back-up Earth that orbits 180° from the position of the Earth we're currently ruining. (Always hidden by the sun.) We can just move to that one. Simple!

You mean Terra? I dunno, the women there treat men like property.

its crazy how many i saw in missouri... dead on the side of the road. different kind of roadkill south of here i guess.

Interesting, figured they would only be in Texas.

/Bit of randomness. There's an armadillo in the opening scenes of the movie 'Monster Squad'. My brother and I were watching it the other day. He said "What's an armadillo doing in Transylvania?"

Leprosy.

Leprosy! Armadillos are teh leperz! Yo.

I've seen them, dead and alive, in South Florida. Saw a couple, dead, passing through various parts of Texas. You do NOT want to run over one unless you have a good spare tire and are willing to change a flat.

Am I the only one who read armadillo as amontillado?

You were probably thinking of that Poe story, A Cask of Armadilloes.

Mr. Xhin: I guess we still have that back-up Earth that orbits 180° from the position of the Earth we're currently ruining. (Always hidden by the sun.)

Woah! I wrote (what I thought was) a fictional story about such an earth for a project in the 4th grade. I guess I really am a psychic!

/knows too much

even among those who did not start drinking at breakfast

Based on the people I've seen driving today, I'd posit that these people do not exist.

Leprosy, SP. Not very contagious and quite treatable these days.

"We get them in MO too. "

I know that for a fact because I was there for basic training and on ftx one of my friends yelled out asking if armadillos were poisonous. I yelled back no and don't worry cuz there aren't any around here and then he pulled one out of a hole.

/tons of huge bugs there to

I grew up in northern Oklahoma in the 70s ...they said armadillos were moving north and would reach us there soon.
 
2006-12-24 12:39:27 AM
If they are lepers, they need to be eradicated. I propose the great Armadillo hunt of 07!!!!!!
 
2006-12-24 01:00:39 AM
the lack of punctuation in that article made my head hurt.
 
2006-12-24 01:12:56 AM
I saw one here in Georgia. Afterwards no one believed me.
I hear they're good eatin'.
I had no idea leprosy was still around. I thought Jesus cured that back in the 50's.
 
2006-12-24 01:24:11 AM
Haven't seen Armadillos yet but I saw Pork, and the Havana Ducks...
 
2006-12-24 01:45:36 AM
Most were dead as doornails along roads the leathery animals with poor vision are no match against highway traffic.

....

To Robbins, the prehistoric-looking armadillo Spanish for "little armored thing" is here to stay.


Holy punctuation, Batman!

/can't wait 'til 17th St. B & G starts serving BBQ armadillo

I could have sworn I saw some roadkill kangaroos here in madison.
Probably just a dog with its front legs knocked off.

I live in Georgia and saw one dead on the side of the road. I had no idea they lived anywhere other than the southwest.

shrugs - the lack of punctuation in that article made my head hurt.

I noticed the same thing. I even made this .png to express my discontent.
