Beware The Falling Iguanas

One of the unique features of freezes that reach South Florida is the risk of being brained by a comatose iguana falling out of a tree. As both Mustang Bobby and the BBC note, the cold-blooded lizards react to freezing temperatures by slowing all of their life processes to a point where they seem to have died. Losing their grip on the trees they live in they fall to the ground. If they warm up in time, they will climb back up their tree leaving the concussed tourists lying on the ground.

😆 Sounds like our infamous Drop Bears (based upon Koalas that had run out of their drug during high drought years). Except, they were not comatose, which is pretty much their *normal* state when they had a plentiful supply of their fave Eucalyptus drug!

Without their drug you would have to be Trump or another total maroon to believe koalas were cuddly little teddy bears. Look at the claws on those suckers – a fistful of daggers.

Before “Drop Bears” became a thing, we just called them “face shredders”! When they have a plentiful supply of juicy Eucalyptus, they’re stoned higher than a 60’s hippie! Without it… they tend to get quite cranky! Withdrawal is a real bitch! 😉

The new RWNJ meme floating around SM is that Australia doesn’t actually exist & is a complete hoax! LMAO

Sorry, can’t post a link to the original, but someone took a screencap & tweeted it:

Wow, so Australia is a made-up thing created by fake news sources like NASA and National Geographic. That explains so much! [/snark]

As well as Australia I don’t exist for my ISP at the moment. A major PITA 😡

So I’m back after scrounging through my spare parts boxes in the wee hours to cobble together a solution that provides access via a path other than The Phone Company.

Well, Kryten, do we start calling it Four Exes? 😆
