It came straight from Hell...


Pretty, isn't it? It's a boll weevil. Apparently, Hell is full of them. Who knew? I guess boll weevils are like Satan's um....kittens? Sure, why not?

What I'm really referring to, of course, is the care package that Big Pissy sent me from Twiddle-Your-Ball-Sack, Alabama. Boll Weevils are HUGE in that particular corridor of Hell.

Check out all the sweet swag Pissy sent me and the Mrs:

Whoo-hoo! We're in Hell Heaven!

The T-shirt will come in handy. Next time I travel up there I can walk among the citizens of Hell unmolested. Same with the bumpersticker. Now I can drive down the molten lava encrusted roads without winged denizens of the Underworld dive bombing me with scads of fiery brimstoney poop.

The his-and-hers mason jar mugs will come in handy when we're out on the porch swillin' moonshine and playing the banjo with our feet.

She also sent a postcard of a boll weevil statue in town. They must worship the boll weevil as a God there. I must now pledge my undying allegiance to great and terrible boll weevil. I must do his bidding. I must do my part to wipe out crops and um...be all...um...buggy and stuff.

Okay, I'm a little hazy on how a boll weevil spends his day.

And she also included a large plastic pink frog with a crown. The reason for this of course, is...umm...gosh. Well, I guess because it's pink! And you know what that can only mean:

The one thing you can't get in Hell: a pink boll weevil.

But the frog is a marvelous stand-in.

We love it all! I was having a horrible day at work yesterday, and this cheered me up immensely.

Thanks Pissy! You're the best!

Note: Don't forget to vote here. You can vote once per day. After all, Pissy is the one who nominated me. You wouldn't want to damage her self esteem by not helping me win, would you? :)

I've been to Enterprise Alabama on many occasions...
Not to far from where I live now.
You should ask her about the time someone stole the monument in downtown of their prized weevil.
Great gifts.

Heh! SOOOOOO glad you and Mrs. Fab like the gift! It's hard to find something worth for your fabulousness in hell!

and I thought the lovely pink frog watering can could be used for the plants on your patio.

Or if it should come to life, to eat the boll weevils! ;-)

and you KNOW I had to include something PINK! =)

What a fun care package to get in the mail!

If I lived in Enterprize you can bet your wild sack of lemurs I would most definatly be in on the statue stealing. Sounds like a good time!

Please don't hesitate to post pics of you and the missus on the back porch swing playing ur banjos with your toes :)

That is a fantastic care package and to arrive on a day that is not going so well is awesome. You are kicking butt in the poll. I will keep voting!!

one of the greatest movie lines ever from "Master and Commander"... after Russell Crowe points out two weevils marching about on the dinner table amongst the stale brown bread, corky wine and stringy meat; he asks his friend, the doctor, which weevil he would choose in a race. The doctor, also an amateur evolutionist, points out the larger of the two insects, to which Russell replies, "Ah, but Dr., shouldn't one always choose the lesser of two weevils???" hardy har

Wow, cool stuff. Amazing what you can get for a pink flamingo these days. I never knew the rate of exhange between Fla and Alabama was so great.

ROFL! Fab, that really made my day today. The Presidents of the United States of America also have a really funny song called nonother than "Boll Weevil," and it may enlighten you as to exactly HOW a boll weevil spends his day. According to them, they spend it on their big butts. Great. Now I can't get it outta my head. Thanks for the giggle!

Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Beady--So you're both from Missouri, eh? That explains a LOT!

Spider Walk--Hey, no reason we have to live there to start a 'stealin'. I say ROAD TRIP!

Cherish--Thanks for voting! Yes, it was just the pick me up I needed!

Sea--LOL I remember that, it was hilarious!

Lady K--LOL When I was looking up weevils I came across that song. Too funny!

Boy, this comment moderation is a pain. IF you get a lot of comments it's hard to keep track, and then sometimes they don't publish when you tell them to, and you have to backtrack and figure out which ones didn't post, and re-post them.

Geez.

OK, catching up...

Billy--Oh yes, the exchange rate heavily favors FL. The only lower exchange rate is in MS LOL

Pissy--Thanks again so much. I will make sure Mrs. Fab employs the watering can liberally!

Mike--Oh yeah. You ought to need a passport to get into Alabama!

Jozee--Maine, really? Those freaks :)

Name the artist:

"You're funkier than a mosquito's tweeter;
You got a mouth like a herd o' boll weevils;
Same ol' thing, you never change;
ALWAYS talkin' 'bout the same ol' thing!"
