My newest FaceBook friend: Penelope Seal
sfgate ^

Posted on 03/11/2009 11:30:35 AM PDT by JoeProBono

Now that FaceBook has become the popularity litmus test de rigueur, the more friends the merrier. So what's to stop you from adding an elephant seal to your growing list of cohorts? We can always use more friends, especially when they help teach us things about ourselves and the world around us. And according to NPR's All Things Considered, this was Nicole Teutschel's impetus for creating a FaceBook page for Penelope Seal.

(Excerpt) Read more at sfgate.com ...


TOPICS: Computers/Internet; Pets/Animals
KEYWORDS: facebook; seal

Penelope and her pup on the beach. The visible tag tracks her position and a small tag on her back records her depth over time.

'What would happen if we gave one seal a Facebook page?'"

One need only visit Penelope's FB page to find out the answer. At last count she had collected more than 3,315 friends. Her latest status reads, "Penelope Seal is undulating down the beach towards the ocean! It's time for her to return to the North Pacific for the first of two migrations she'll have this year." And her relationship status? "It's complicated."

I thought someone had taped an M-80 it her head.

I think I'll add Penelope as a friend and post seal recipes.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. 1
    In a saucepan over medium-high heat, cook the oil out of a few fatty pieces of seal.
  2. 2
    Add meat and onion. Cook, stirring, until the surfaces of the meat are done.
  3. 3
    In layers, add carrots, then turnips, potatoes, and finally parsnips. Add water to cover, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to maintain a simmer.
  4. 4
    Cook about 35 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Stir in ketchip if desired.

Allegra, aren't you the resident expert on blowing up fruit with M-80's on people's heads?

“I thought someone had taped an M-80 it her head.”

That’s what I’m going to tell my friends it is when I email them the picture!

At one point, I knew who that was; I've since forgotten. I think it's either Humblegunner or Eaker.

I believe it was both and Allegra was a co-conspirator.

It would be interesting to see the reaction of all her face book friends if she is snapped up by a hungry great white or playful orca.

Get in line. They look like elephant seals. Which means there’s probably a group of VERY large Great Whites in the waters near their beach {Farallons?] waiting to nosh.

So it is a falsified identity on facebook. This is news? The Left has entered numerous fraudulent Rush Limbaugh profiles (that Mr. Limbaugh has properly gotten control of).

Eaker blows up fruit that is duct-taped to humblegunner's head. I just watch (and laugh 'til my sides hurt.)

Xenalyte had a lime in a funnel taped to her head blown up once last summer.

As I was watching that a few people came in my office and asked, “Who are those dumb asses?”

I just said, “Some Internet idiots!”

I sent them the link to see if they figure it out.

They did, and whoever lights it gets one million dollars and the opportunity
to club the baby seal.

M-80 do they still sell those things? Are they still a 1/5 op a stick of dynamite? Where can I buy them?
