How to anesthetize your weasel

sleeping weasel

First, tape your weasel securely to a cutting board. No, no idea. It just turned up on an images search of “dead weasel.” Since this adorable little squeaker apparently isn’t dead (who anesthetizes a dead weasel? Nobody, that’s who) I figured, “better still!”

Sorry I buggered the blog for a while today. WordPress software has been pissing and moaning at me to upgrade for weeks, since the version I had ‘ad an ‘ole in it, is the technical term. But I had just upgraded it to the version I had — during the course of which I severely buggered the blog — and I wasn’t in a hurry to repeat the experience.

“I know!” I thought this morning, “I’ll use that automatic upgrade plugin thingamajig that all the kids are raving about!” And there we go, buggered.

After much faffing and sweating, turns out I simply can’t log in to WordPress 2.6 as admin using the Opera browser. That bums me in a mild to moderately severe way, but at least there’s a workaround. And I figured it out all by myself, so maybe I’ll get a gold star or an M&M or they’ll name the bug after me or something.

Okay, let’s see if this works. Behold, I appear before you in Internet Explorer! It smells like Bill Gates in here. And ass. Yes, there is a subtle qualitative difference.

I’m looking at you with Opera Stoaty and you look fabulous! Everything seems to be functional too. Well done!

Hi, Weaz! Thought I’d check in and let you know I’m not dead yet. I get online about once a week to pay bills and make sure Schwab hasn’t lost my ass in this market.

House is fine, country living is challenging, and being without broadband (so far) is driving me to opiates. I may have a bb solution soon.

I have many interesting and completely unbelievable stories I won’t bore ya’all with, and I miss you and this site terribly!

I will return!

oh please! there is NO WAY scotch tape would work! First, they would need 2-4 people to hold the critter down, apply the anesthetizia (sp?) and then once he’s out, they could put the tape on. I once tried to put one of those little harness/leashes on my ferret so I could take him outside. He would just make himself smaller and slip right out of it, even with my son trying to help me. Then he let me know in no uncertain terms that he would have none of it.

for your ferrity enjoyment


McGoo! your stories arent boring! tell us!

What?! Ferrets are illegal in California!?

No wonder they say it’s a madhouse.

There’re parts of this country where the brutes are just about compulsory;)

Speaking of wild animals, I visited a bird sanctuary today and mentioned the B-word to the head warden.

‘Badgers!? BADGERS?! Don’t talk to me about badgers,’ he spat.

Seems a couple of years ago they had some lesser spotted fuckwits fly in from.. oh, somewhere, and land on the islands they have in this huge wetland area.

They were doing very well, apparently.

Until the badgers swam out and ate them.


Personally, I reckon they rowed. We try not to get wet.

Good to see you’re still with us, McGoo!

Oh, and yer Ladyship. I think your weasel smileys are broked.

Oh, I can see the blog with Opera, Enas. I can even edit comments. I just can’t get into Adminland. The login screen sits there with its thumb up its ass, even if you give it the correct username and password.

McGoo! I felt a great disturbance in the Force! Okay, this merits a smiley. Let’s see if I’ve managed to fix them: 🙂

I see your bedful of ferrets, and raise you…..a bathtub of puppies!

According to the article, each of these glum little hounds is potentially worth £800!

Awww….look at the smooshie faces. Thems going to be big boys and girls by the looks of their feet.

If you are referring to my post about ‘a bedful of ferrets’, those are not ferrets. If you weren’t referring to my post….nevermind. 🙂

You have a bathtub of puppies, I’ll throw down a show-n-tell otter.

Nah, it was wendyworn’s YouTube clip of the ferrets on the bed, gambolling like kittens.

Well, like stretched kittens that have had their legs drastically shortened, anyway 🙂

Oooh, baby skunks and an otter! Too much cute at once for a Monday morning..

Fantastic advert! Bet it never ever aired on UK TV though – there’d be outraged animal lovers writing in in their droves…

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
