60th Birthday Weekend! (Actual day is Sunday!) Celebration time!! emoticon
__________________________
Larry’s car broke down while he was driving through the countryside. He was waiting for a tow truck when he heard a deep voice say, “I bet it’s the carburetor.” He looked out his window, and all he saw was a big brown cow with a white circle around its right eye. Larry was too startled to say anything, so he jumped out of his car and ran down the road. When he came upon a farmer, he told him about the cow. The farmer asked, “Did that cow have a white patch over its eye?”
“Yes,” answered Larry.
“Well, then you were fooled,” laughed the farmer.
“Fooled?” asked Larry.
“Yes,” said the farmer. “Old White Patch doesn’t know anything about cars.”

What does the menacing-looking deep-sea vampire squid do when startled?

It turns itself “inside out,” defensively curling its web and arms around the rest of its body in what researchers refer to as its pineapple posture.
(I got that one wrong - I was thinking it shot out black inky stuff! emoticon

Tricks of the trade from commercial food stylists

* Brown shoe polish is painted onto steaks and burgers to make them look like they’re perfectly cooked.

* Hair spray prevents lettuce and vegetables from wilting.

* Spray deodorant is how stylists get the look of tiny, frosty ice crystals on the outside of an ice cream container. It also makes delicate fruits—particularly grapes—shine.

GREAT! you got me !
Til the end I thought it
was a TRUE story

FASCINATING
I had to immediately google
vampire squid
According to marinebio.org
it is actually a cross between
squids and octopi, but their
body composition is similar
to that of a jellyfish !

AND they have fins.
When the last pair of fins
reaches maturity, the original
air is then reabsorbed. The new
fins change the vampire squid's
swimming style from jet propulsion
(like a squid) to fin propulsion!
