Another misleading title. The reptile has not passed the bar exam so it cannot practice yet.
2001-12-03 01:22:49 PM  
Goddam para-legal reptiles

Don't you mean "will sell insurance at Geico"?
2001-12-03 01:24:27 PM  
no but its already getting mistaken for a car insurance company!
2001-12-03 01:24:49 PM  
I think you'll find, being a lizard, that it's not technically allowed to practice law, as it has 4 too many legs.
2001-12-03 01:25:31 PM  
I can't tell how big it is, it's on some crazy foreign money.
2001-12-03 01:29:45 PM  
didn't a reptile run for governor in Michigan?
2001-12-03 01:35:27 PM  
Gila Fieger.

Cornelius Flockhart (Is that the lawyer in the planet of the apes :-) The article states 1.6cm or approx 3/4"

WTF? I've had chunks of corn in my crap bigger than that!

I find this headline extremely amusing. My ex-girlfriend named Liz was often called lizard. She's now practicing law in Michigan.

Thinking of her reminds me of a liner note from a Run Westy Run album:

No matter how cute your girlfriend is, or how much she laughs at your jokes, somebody, somewhere, is sick of her shiat.

If such a reptile has only now been discovered, then what other larger reptiles, may even now be lurking, waiting to emerge from the primordial dawn?

2001-12-03 02:04:46 PM  
Tastes like chicken.
2001-12-03 02:08:30 PM  
Random thought: My father-in-law calls all lizards "Oscar". Then he shoots them with a BB gun.
2001-12-03 02:08:42 PM  
Best Headline of the day..hands down
2001-12-03 02:13:25 PM  
Is the peso the same size as a penny? Smaller or larger? WTF? I know people in Michigan have pennies. Was this lizard found in Mexico first?
2001-12-03 02:13:32 PM  
big duck cocks, midget lizards, sounds like fark is going extreme beastiality.
2001-12-03 02:14:27 PM  
No, just circus sideshow.
2001-12-03 02:26:14 PM  
The only problem I have with this headline is that it gives reptiles in general a bad name.
2001-12-03 02:30:17 PM  
Volks Because it implies they are stupid enough to choosel to live in Michigan? ;)
2001-12-03 02:30:48 PM  
I've known several geckos, green anoles, and even an iguana, and not a single one of them would stoop to practicing law...

"We did not even know the species existed, although the area has been studied by biologists for several hundred years."

Gee, maybe biologists didn't know it existed because it's only 3/4 of an inch long? DUH
2001-12-03 02:36:35 PM  
The reptile anti defamation leauge had filed a lawsuit over farks tagline
2001-12-03 02:38:05 PM  
I have several pet geckos. I'll have to try to pick one of these up at the next reptile show, as long as it doesn't try to correct me every time I do something it thinks is contrary to it's laws.
2001-12-03 02:41:51 PM  
I bet it recently evolved from salamanders. Someone better alert the creationists!
2001-12-03 02:42:14 PM  
The state legislature here came within two votes of naming one of their fellow representatives the state reptile.

He was not amused.
2001-12-03 02:50:09 PM  
Fb- is the father?
2001-12-03 02:51:27 PM  
i still say drews hitting the beastiality sites :o~=} (thats supposed to be barfing..)
2001-12-03 03:04:55 PM  
Cool. I wonder if they could be trained to crawl into people's ears and eat their brains!
2001-12-03 03:06:25 PM  
Hey....a ....really small............lizard.

That's..... pretty
2001-12-03 03:12:06 PM  
that's one cute little lizard.
2001-12-03 03:23:32 PM  
As an aside:

Here's another cool gecko (photographed in Kona, but originally from Madagascar).
The Gold Dust Day Gecko
For what it's worth.
2001-12-03 03:35:43 PM  
Hey, Michigan's a cool state. We have tons of fresh water here, and... I'll get back to you on the rest.
2001-12-03 03:36:50 PM  
Terribly endangered because the people lookin for 'em keep stepping on 'em.

Hey guys! I think I found- *Squish* Oops.
2001-12-03 03:48:28 PM  
The lizard was later quoted as saying he would defend Jack Kevorkian in the sucide doctor's latest legal wrangling.
2001-12-03 04:01:24 PM  
I still think Harmonia has a smaller lizard than that in his pants.
2001-12-03 04:08:57 PM  

How hte hell can the thing be endangered if they JUST FOUND IT? It's an inch long. There may be millions. it's not like they know where to look!

"Wow - how rare. A Brazilian Mudclopper. There are only 4 of these in the world."

'Uh, boss, there's two over here."

"And I got 7 in this basket."

"There's like 50 of them in my shoe."

didn't anybody else get Goatman's reference. Or was it so obvious nobody but me would stoop to acknowledge it? Goatman- LOL way OL!
2001-12-03 04:24:43 PM  
apparently few attorneys frequent fark. i'm a newer farker - any of you ol' time farkers recall an occupation survey of farkers? if it's been done, what were the results?

Woodworx: I got it! haw haw haw
2001-12-03 05:07:55 PM  
But it's hung like a Brazilian duck.
2001-12-03 05:27:30 PM  
Why is it that every article regarding a unique species has to have the obligatory "species is threatened" and if the "Carribean isn't protected the species won't make it" political propoganda in it?

We spent millions a year TRYING to make species extinct, yet by eating a burger, we're going to kill off all of these critters we didn't even know about. What shiat!
2001-12-03 05:51:17 PM  
Affinity: the Dominican Peso pictured is just a little smaller than a US quarter. I worked in the DR this past summer and fwiw, the Jaragua National Park is fantastic.
2001-12-03 05:53:49 PM  
I seriously want one (or more) in my (yet to be built) terrarium!

Crickets vs. the death!

2001-12-03 06:14:56 PM  
"We did not (*squish*) even know (*squash*) the species existed (*splort*) , although the area has been studied (*eek!*) by biologists for several hundred years(*squish*)."

P.S. I dinna do it.
2001-12-03 06:26:30 PM  
Michigan's only good things involve Ann Arbor and a coupla good bars in Detroit. That's about it, really.
2001-12-03 06:55:24 PM  
are we sure this shouldn't be labeled "PHOTOSHOP" instead of "COOL"?
2001-12-03 09:07:11 PM  
Sweater Girl I was tricked into moving back here...yeah, tricked...

For the record, I believe we have the highest concentration of rednecks outside of the south. I'm not one of them, but I'm closely related to some (trailer and all).
