Guest Blogger: Caption Contest!

*****GUEST BLOGGER*****


     Hey Man, Looka Here...

     I had just finished a quick 35 mile run and stopped to water the crabapple tree. Oh wait, I looked at my watch wrong...it was 3.5 miles. Anyhoo, as I passed the truck on the way to the water barrel, I saw this abomination taking place on the wheel/tire. Two Wheel bugs, sex, and a snack! Whereupon I channeled the immortal words of Cal Naughton Jr., "That   just   happened!".
     I made the picture, now it's up to you casual and loyal readers to supply the caption or story to go with it. Be nice, keep it reasonably clean, and for heaven's sake get involved! We are asking for your participation (lurkers-you know I'm talking to you). The winner will receive a 1 year free subscription to A Suburban Wilderness blog! A virtual $49.95 value for free!
     So good luck and get to it! 

                                Love Yawl

                                                     Jeff

P.S. I'm guest blogging today because Julie is so terribly upset. She missed the earthquake and now it looks like Irene's much needed rain will pass us by.

  8. ...Dr. Wheelbug worked feverishly on the badly damaged left knee of little Billy Hopper as Nurse Frisky observed from a little too close behind.

  10. Dennis the Hopper's plan to just play dead until the two wheel bugs passed had taken an unexpectedly fatal turn.

    ...Famed tailor to the insect stars, Roberto Wheelbug and his overly eager assistant Claudio, are seen taking precise measurements for longtime client Hoppin D. Grasse. Mr. Grasse's exceptionally long hopping legs make custom-fit suiting a must!

  16. Seeing that the grasshopper had slipped off the tread, two passing wheel bugs quickly formed a "sub-human chain", thereby snatching the lucky hopper from the jaws of certain death.

    Having studied the Eastern Green Fescue Leaper for quite some time, I began to notice a curious phenomenon. For it seemed that the leaper had developed a habit of licking the tires of my research vehicle, gleaning bits road salts and crushed insects. This, however, made them easy prey for rare but deadly Doubledecker Spiny-Backed Leaper Sniper.

    Gee wiz guy, take the picture already! I can't hold onto these two much longer! Not to mention, I still think the pose looks contrived.

  19. It had been a hot dry summer. Not just the usual hot/dry, but full on Atacama dry. (google it & learn something! I can't spoon feed the whole Internet of ya!) So dry snakes died mid-strike from exhaustion. So you could imagine the fight that ensued when this hopper was found to have fluid on the knee (likely an old injury from his high school days as a long jumper).

  20. Stevie! You're getting to be such a big boy, you are too heavy for your Ol' Momma to bee givin' you a piggybackride! And espescially NOT while I'm eating my low fat lunch! Get Off Me!!!

  21. Bringing in a third to the relationship often sounds like a good idea...but in the end, someone ALWAYS gets hurt.
