W is for World

The world is populated with plenty of bizarre and astonishing creatures. I think I've met some of these folks, in human form.

An actor I know.

Certainly, this creature on cable news.

Has the beady eyes of as prominent local citizen.

A contestant on a reality television show.

An animated fellow.

This looks like a professor I once had.

I find that this type of mop cleans quite well.


the chair of a committee I once served on.

A former customer.

Now, if I were nice, I'd tell you what these creatures are. But tr=the pictures were sent to me without that information. I WAS given an incomplete list of choices, though:
Dumbo Octopus
Emperor Tamarin
Frill-necked Lizard
Komondor Dog
Pink Fairy Armadillo
Proboscis Monkey
Pygmy Marmoset
Star-nosed Mole
Sucker-footed Bat
Sun Bear
White-faced Saki Monkey
Yeti Crab

I've figured out most of them, but have at it.

I agree with Anthonynorth:great photos , delivered with a nice touch of humour! I once got these animals in my e-mail, and I thought they weren't real.Thanks for looking up all the names and showing all those funny characters!

I once had a rendering of Jesus laughing. I considered it a great expression of the incarnation as it communicated a genuine humanity. As I have thought about it more, however, I think that humor and laughter are rooted in the very being of God, and so comedy is divine. Your pictures here are an affirmation of this idea. Thanks for sharing, both the pictures and the humorous captions. Shall I say it's very divine of you?
