Oh, @japhroaig, paging @japhroaig! Capybara on aisle @frauenfelder
Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! You missed one of the best sources of capybara joy - http://animalssittingoncapybaras.tumblr.com/
YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH JOY THIS BRINGS TO MUH!!!
Of course I do! Why do you think I paged you?
Who just happens to have a capybara an ducklings in their home? That like to take baths together? How can I visit this person?
Little known fact: Capybaras are very talented impersonators: http://capybarasthatlooklikerafaelnadal.tumblr.com/
Trivia: In Venezuela where they are native we call them Chiguire (Chee-gooey-reh. Almost no pronunciation on the R). I prefer the spanish name, just saying it amuses me
I like the “snarling capybara” best.
I remember staying in Belize for a short while…and the locals found these things to be a delicacy.
Not as tasty as I would have hoped.
And now for a musical tribute to the capybara…
How did I not know about this?!?
As much as I am meh about Nirvana I will always be happy they brought this band to the attention of the world. I feel a bit like what Kurt Cobain said about then when I see them live…
“I turned into a nine-year old girl at a Beatles concert.”
oo - had not seen this one before
Seeing as you like Shonen Knife - are you familiar with The Raincoats? I love their music.
I never heard about them back in their own day - I learned about them from my daughter, who learned about them because Kurt Cobain said their music was one of the few things that could make him happy when he was depressed (and he twisted David Geffen’s arm to get their music back in print.)
