“Dude, where’s my shirt?”

It’s a zebrula:

A zebrula — a cross between a horse and a zebra — has drawn curious onlookers to a zoo in Germany because of its unusual coat.

While zebrulas have been in existence since the 19th century, this one is particularly unique: its coat is sharply divided between horse and zebra, says Safaripark, a zoo near northern Guetersloh.

The animal, which is slightly more than a year old and is named Eclyse, has a zebra head, while the first half of the rest of its body is white and the second half is zebra-colored.

    Shame on you, Melissa.

    Not to be totally boring, but I suspect parent horse was a paint or pinto horse – hence the “splotching”. If he were all horse, it would be brown and white, or whatever.

    Now, for the caption — “Man, they aren’t kidding about testing for colorfastness before shampooing!”

    Stripery and ivory, live together in perfect harmony…

  26. OK, I know damn well I posted a comment here and it’s not showing up. I typed the exact same comment and got a notice that it was a duplicated comment. WTF?

    I’m not even intoxicated. Stone cold sober. 🙂

  27. Anyhoo, as I was saying, one morning after waking up, I walked out on my patio to have a smoke in the twilight.

    I saw a snake.


    And I got closer because it was still.

    And you know, I like snakes in a werid way.

    And this snake was funny looking, because (and I said this to myself) IT HAS A FROG’S HEAD!

    Well, sorta, It had latched it’s fuckin’ jaw into a frog’s ass!

    I kid you not.

    I broke the whole thing up. And the frog leap away, And the serpent did whatever serpents do.

    But what prompted my thought about this, was seeing a baby toad on the patio tonight. I yelled out to the old fat toad bitch, “keep on pumping ’em out you fat bitch.”

    That one HAS GOT to win me brownie points with the phat contingent here.

    The zoo’s veterinarians were half way done with their work on the coat of this animal, when the Roberts Court, in a 5-4 decision, halted all further integration.
