Did You Know . . .?

The hawk moth has a 6-inch tongue! is better to be happy
for a moment
and be burned up with beauty
than to live a long time
and be bored all the while . . .
it is better to be a part of beauty
for one instant and then cease to
exist than to exist forever
and never be a part of beauty...

  1. This puts me in mind of that other long tongued insect...which is found only in the wee hours of the midnight mercies...the barfly.

  2. Do lounge lizards prey on barflies?

  3. I googled your question and came up with this title:

    How to Avoid Being a Bar Fly Vulture, a Bar Stool Bunny or a Lounge Lizard

    Did you hear the one about the Fly, the vulture, the lizard and the bunny?

    Me neither.

  4. Well, I don't know, wench...this is the third time I've posted a comment on different subjects on your blog...and they disappeared.

    I answered this morning,before Chimp...Lounge lizards pray for barflies.

    Chimp---Vada Boom!

  5. Gee, fellas - thanks for clearing that up!

    Don't know what to say about the comments issue, jaded. Have you paid your internet bill this month?


And you thought...
