who wears the pants in this household?

cmon man its gotta pouch, if it gives you any trouble you can turn it into a purse for the misses.
 
2002-10-23 06:37:28 PM
No argument necessary. You just need to orally convince her to give in. =)
 
2002-10-23 06:38:32 PM
Dont get one, they require tons of attention and unless you have a vet that specializes in exotics you will end up being heartbroken when your vet cant tell you whats wrong with it.
 
2002-10-23 06:38:35 PM
WTF is that thing, anyway?
 
2002-10-23 06:47:53 PM
tastes like chicken
 
2002-10-23 07:05:17 PM
I bet they eat their young.
 
2002-10-23 07:06:40 PM
Wonderful when deep-fried in a light tempura batter.
 
2002-10-23 07:21:37 PM
Just promise her that the sugar glider won't end up like your last pet, Mr. Gerbil. Time has passed. You may have regained her trust.
 
2002-10-23 07:22:10 PM
They have four drumsticks.
 
2002-10-23 07:52:14 PM
You guys keep these things as pets? How strange.
 
2002-10-23 07:58:26 PM
It'll get sick and die. I promise.
 
2002-10-23 08:01:14 PM
They give good head?
 
2002-10-23 08:18:50 PM
Tell her that unlike cats, this pet won't try to kill you at every opportunity.
 
2002-10-23 08:30:17 PM
I'm with your wife. Get a dog the're free.
 
2002-10-23 08:46:53 PM
What is the native country of these creatures? Looks like some kind some of hybrid between a squirrel and a bat. I would get a dog if were me, as Vtoria mentioned it is much easier to find vets for the average mutt.
 
2002-10-23 08:56:46 PM
get a pet rock... VERY low maintenance...
 
2002-10-23 09:00:19 PM
Listen to your wife.
 
2002-10-23 09:04:08 PM
If you have kids - Don't Get A Sugar Glider. If you're hardly ever home or live a busy life - Don't Get A Sugar Glider. They can be great pets but they are definately not for everyone. Please read the following article before you make a decision either way.

They are relatively small. This is a plus because when they crawl into your radiator and die, the rotting corpse won't give off much odor.
 
2002-10-23 09:52:06 PM
Grow a pair and just go buy it
 
2002-10-23 11:53:02 PM
The_Cisco_Kid:

They are native to Australia and Indonesia (I think). Thats why we don't have them as pets. It's illegal.
 
2002-10-24 12:28:58 AM
I can definitely believe Australia and nearby area. Some of the more unusual animals seem to thrive there.
 
2002-10-24 05:14:11 AM
Feh. Duct Tape.
 
2002-10-24 05:15:11 AM
I wonder if Richard Gere knows these things exist.
 
2002-10-24 05:16:11 AM
They require a ton of affection, give very little back, have a special diet, and are very expensive to maintain. So, get rid of her, and get the SugarGlider.
 
2002-10-24 05:16:33 AM
Get a dog.
 
2002-10-24 05:16:47 AM
That sound they make is too damn weird. It would turn me into an alien abductee, I'm afraid. I vote yes get one.
 
2002-10-24 05:17:46 AM
These animals have a unique night-time habbit of emitting extraordinarily high pitched mating calls. Typically this occurs when one is missing it's mate. There are special muzzles one can buy to help, but the best options are to either purchase two as a set, or get an electronic sub-sonic device (it simply plugs into the wall) that tricks the animal into submission. Unfortunately, some long-tern effects of the latter option are eventual insanity of both the animal and custodian, and uncontrollable urination.

You are probably better off with sheep.
 
2002-10-24 05:19:58 AM
Sit her down and tell her how you feel and why you want it as a pet. Also holding a gun to her head tends to help.
 
2002-10-24 05:20:55 AM
There have been 156 visitors to this website in the last 20 minutes.

Sloooow Farking
 
2002-10-24 05:23:48 AM
I think the counter only counts up to 156, cause it was that way when I visited it a while ago. Kinda like y2k but 156....

ok, just ignore me - it is way past my bedtime
 
2002-10-24 05:24:46 AM
what a stupid idea. i hope it bites your nuts off.

vote for me!?
 
2002-10-24 05:25:44 AM
no more voting. :(
 
2002-10-24 05:26:52 AM
Jato has my vote although he didn't enable voting.

If I had to make this decision i would work out how much beer money i would have to forgo to buy the pet and how much extra sex the pet would get me.

Lose a lot of beer money to gain very little sex... seems like a silly idea to me.

theyre ugly as hell so its highly unlikey she will ever find you in a 'compromising' position with it... unlike goats
 
2002-10-24 05:30:11 AM
this is the same reason why i don't want any kids.
 
2002-10-24 05:31:07 AM
I would breed it with Nutsack Squirrel and sell the little ones.
 
2002-10-24 05:32:24 AM
They are a native Australian animal (as am I) and I believe they're quite rare. If this guy is in Australia - then cool - have one as a pet, and make sure you get a pair and then breed a few babies.

But please don't take them out of Australia!

Cheers,

What is that thing, some kind of lemur? Marsupial? If what Dr.TolianSoren said is right, it sounds like it's in the lemur family. ...not good house pets, sorry.
 
2002-10-24 05:36:54 AM
w00t no one voted yet, so I'm now going to vote for myself

SugarGlider....Damn! I remember them from the 80's! They kicked Poison's ass! Anyone else remember their song "Sugar in the tank...Sugar on my skank!!!!" Brings back memories...



I EAT POOP!
 
2002-10-24 05:38:45 AM
Seriously though, I knew a guy who had one in college. All I ever saw it do was sleep in his shirt pocket. Woohoo! If you want to be like that guy on The Abyss, go for it.

Sugar Glider pros: Cute. Lives 10-15 years.

Sugar Glider cons: Lives 10-15 years. Extremely clingy. Poops on you. Pees on you. Scratches you. Eats meal-worms and day-old dead chicks. Smells bad. Nocturnal.

Maybe if you had two it would be OK. Otherwise, if you want a funky animal, try a rat. I hear that they can be trained to recognize their names and do tricks by verbal command. Also can be litterbox trained. They live a heck of a lot less if it turns out you don't like 'em too.
 
2002-10-24 05:41:07 AM
Just get a fly. They live only a few weeks. One dies..OH WELL!
 
2002-10-24 05:49:10 AM
Tell her you need to get one because they're evil! EEEVILLL!!!

Maybe you could give her the "be the first on your block to have one" line.

Or just lie and say you got it for free or something and/or to not keep it would be condemning it to death in a shelter.
 
2002-10-24 05:59:13 AM
My pet can eat your pet.
 
2002-10-24 06:00:14 AM
METAL- Was that a Kids in the Hall reference I read there?
 
2002-10-24 06:00:39 AM
Tell her your getting the farking SugarRat and to keep her mouth shut until you want it open.

and oh yes lades I'm available;)

Buy one and then fly it home to Australia and set it free. If you don't want to do that, then don't buy one at all.

Or tell your wife you hate her and need a pet in the house to help you cope with the hell of living with her.

Get a farking dog! Much more satisfying.
