Renaming the Anteater.


A flickr contact and I were discussing that the anteaters were a surprisingly endearing exhibit at the zoo, and she suggested that perhaps anteaters would be more popular if they had a cutesier name.

Suggestions?  So far we have “snugglefuzzytubes” and “crawling nuzzlebars.”

  1. Of course, that’s from your point of view. From the ants’ point of view, it’s “the Darkness Monster” or “the sucking monster that eats my children,” or “Why Johnny doesn’t write anymore.”

    Reminds me of a scene from “Dances with Wolves,” the old movie with Kevin Costner. He’s heading out to the fort, out west, with the guy who played the painter in Murphy Brown. And they come across a skeleton with a couple of arrow in it. The painter guy laughs and says, “somewhere back east there’s someone sayin’, ‘why don’t he write?'”
