Well, the word "adopt" is a flag waving on the bumper of a wee crazytrain.

They have these teeny tiny little legs which make them move real slow. Also not too many people know this, but the turtle is also nature's suction cup.

I laughed way too hard at that.

I'm not fast, or even original - that's the exact same headline I thought of as soon as seeing the article.


Someone once told me they hunted turtles. How the heck would you do that? The only way to make it sporting would be to do it like skeet shooting.

The turtle got drunk and passed out at the pond party, then his turtle buddies pranked him by taping balloons to him.

How so? Is there a better word for taking an animal as a pet without an actual purchase being involved?

And none of the people at the scene a) had a camera or b) were able to identify what kind of of flying turtle it was?

Fell out of love

Not only is it the headline everybody thought of, it was already submitted at least one time earlier to day and NOT greenlit.

"Wright says she was horrified by the animal abuse and plans to adopt the turtle if no one claims it."

In other news - this just in from the Testudine Tattler

"Zed Davis, a Box turtle currently residing in Oceanside CA reports experiencing what we all have only dreamt of doing..."

San Diego? wondering if a newly moved into La Jolla was celebrating by re-enacting metaphorically what he did to his dog ages ago?

Well, truth be told, yours is a generic discworld. His was about the evolution of flying turtles.

Especially ones who have a good grasp on flying eagles.
