Badger badger badger (snake?)

Anyone have any idea what this animal is?  I saw him in a park in St. Louis, Missouri, and I’ve been wondering ever since.  And since his home sort of complements my new blog colors, I figured it was high time to feature him here. 😀

WTF entry of the day: Government endorses cannibalistic plants!

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences has various “kids” lyrics pages… one of which has the lyrics and midi file for Little Shop of Horror’s “Suddenly Seymour” song [note: midi file plays when page is loaded].

Check out the video of Store Wars, featuring Obi Wan Cannoli and Darth Tater… and lots of laughs! I actually have very mixed feelings about some of the “evils” it raises — genetic engineering of plants and food irradiation in particular — but on the whole, I do believe in supporting organic farming.
