WTF Wednesday: Humping Seals, Smoking Snorkelers, Driving Dogs

Good day, Wednesday. Good day, WTF.

The pickins are rather slim this week as I spent several days in Tallahassee for a sweet 6 year old’s birthday and haven’t hit the thrift like usual. 

Here is a princess castle cake that Kevin and I decorated. It may not look exaaactly like the one in the video, but it did not fall over. 

hey we tried

Next we have a charming story from the BBC.  Seals discovered having sex with penguins. (warning, video is graphic – One seal eats his penguin mate).

http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20141117-why-seals-have-sex-with-penguins

Antarctic scientists have recorded at least 4 instances of this behavior – the only times pinnipeds (mammals) have been known to attempt mating with birds.

Jesus Christ Mother Nature, WTF?!

Here are a couple of dolls.

Research has shown that old couples look alike, but this is pushing it. 

Next up, what better place to store your hot water bottle and Advil? 

Here is a full page ad for Newport Cigarettes in the 1977 issue of Country Style magazine. 

Snorkeling and cigarettes go together like seals and penguins. Why bother, indeed.

Now for a couple of photos sent to me by my brother.  I am including his captions. 

Ok, you can drive this time.


So I was thinking maybe have Chinese for dinner tonight honey…what do you think?


As with all wtf wednesdays, there are no answers, only questions leading to more questions.

WTF Wednesday: Flower Friends, Bathroom Bunnies, Pegleg Stuyvesant

Just like that, it’s Wednesday again. Where my WTF at? 

In olden days, this is how kids washed their hair. 

WTF?!

If friends were flowers…

 …then you would die in a vase on my table.  

How about a dreamy dog portrait? Maybe a Samoyed or some kind of fluffy Greyhound/wolf hybrid?  Tongue out Tuesday!

Another wonderful craft – two big scallop shells, plus two big conch shells, plus googly eyes equals one WTF duck:

What is this? A kinder, gentler Snakes on a Plane?

WTF?

Who would display this in their house? 

Scowling, Peter Stuyvesant the peg leg figurine.  Okay!

Lastly, here’s a WTF wonder of Asheville – a chair affixed to the front of a house.

WTF Wednesday: Fallen Tree, Crouching Unicorn

Good morning, Wednesday! Good morning, WTF-ery! Let’s scratch our heads. 

First here are some weather-related WTF’s. 

A major storm blew through here and knocked a neighbor’s white pine tree across our driveway yesterday. 

pine tree down on driveway

The rain gauge had a field day – 2.25 inches in 24 hours! 



WTF!?

Now a couple more vintage record albums:

Looks like a normal 60’s religious singing record, but with an Indian twist. Her dress is slightly Bollywood, and the scene is definitely Eastern, but her hair is 100% Mississippi Gospel. Barbara Maharaj.

WTF?


This lovely family donned matching rodeo gear, sat in a pasture, and looked longingly at roses. JL and the Country Squires – Living in the Present and Loving (roses) in the Past. 

WTF?!

Here’s a nice example of rustic native art:

Koko the coco gorilla?  WTF?!

Finally here’s a ceramic unicorn. What is he doing? Dying? Kneeling? Sharpening his horn?


WTF?!
