MAD LIBS: Obfuscating What's-a-who-sit?

It's MAD LIBS week!

Working from Botswana today because I have to wash my hair. I can be reached via mental telepathy, flaming woodchuck, or Windows Pinball.

Source: OK, I wrote this one. Let's just pretend that I was actually playing the MAD LIBS game like the rest of you, because contacting me by "flaming woodchuck" is just too funny to pass up.

Actually, today's guest post comes from Julie. I could not make this my actual status on account of the excuse she chose, but if you're reading my blog, you can handle it:

Working from Chinatown today because he had herpes. I can be reached via American Sign Language, obfuscating bonobo, or WINSOCK.DLL.

Explanation: If you're a regular reader, you're familiar with obfuscation. For the less informed, however, I will now happily explain what a bonobo is. Ummm...

Bono Bow
Uh...

Bono Bow
Well...

bone oboe
Hmmm...

Bo JacksonNo Bo Jackson
OK, screw it - I looked it up. The internet, which is never wrong, tells me that a bonobo is a pygmy chimpanzee. Here's the photo I found:

Bonobo: Pygmy Chimpanzee
There you go. Thank you, Julie. Now we've all learned something today.

We hope you have enjoyed MAD LIBS week here on Jeremy's Sametime Status. Have a great weekend!

Funny side note: I Photoshopped the bone oboe image using a picture of a chimpanzee femur. So, it just might be a bonobo bone oboe!

Busy night with photoshop.

Also this post left me quite obfuscated.

Interestingly a search on "flaming woodchuck" took me to a web site titled "Remedies for Gophers - How to get rid of Groundhogs!" Apparently the solution to all your rodent pest problems is a small flamethrower called the Rodenator, ideal for creating flaming woodchucks.

I kind of hoped that I'd see at least one groundhog carrying a "Gay Pride" placard, but no luck.

We don't know how much wood a woodchuck would chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood. If, however, Chuck gave the woodchuck wood, how much wood could Chuck give the woodchuck before the woodchuck would @#$% Chuck?
