I'm officially creeped out... sloths. My new number one creepiest animal of all time.

And it was a fake sloth that did it to me. Check out this Italian commercial for Alfa Romeo that features a dude dressed up like Satan's favorite animal. I have no idea what it has to do with Alfa Romeo, but there it is. 

And here is a "cute" video of baby sloths doing cute baby sloth things. Not cute to me. Looks like something out of one of my worst nightmares. And a little like that Cloverfield creature. Or is that just me?

Ugh...I'm gonna have more nightmares now about this most hideous of creatures. Thanks, YouTube!

Happy Nude Year's Eve Everyone!!!


Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. All the creepy sloths are doing it.

My daughter went to Costa Rica last February and she came home with all these stories about, get this, A-DOR-A-BLE sloths. I'm with you! I didn't know what the hell they were and I thought they were butt ugly!!

BTW-(completely un blog related)
This is a Red Sox fan telling a Yankees fan, Job Well Done! You stole Texeriaxixixia, (however you spell his name) and Sabbathia. New stadium, hot new pitching staff!! It should be interesting.

I think they're pretty cute. I'd like one of them.

Heff said...

That commercial made absolutely No Sense, but evidently, the sloth must get a LOT of pussy.

Cap'n - You know what? I don't really like otters either. Doing those cute human things with their hands and all. Fuck otters.

Holly - :)

Candy - Did you hear that one of the reasons that Teixiera didn't sign with the Sawx is that he felt bad about the Mike Lowell situation. So he's a good guy too. Nice!

Adam - one of my friends has a pet prairie dog. I refuse to set foot in his house because of it. A sloth would be the same kind of deterrent.

Heff - I guess that is what we the viewers should infer. All it did for me was creep me out.

Happy New Year earl. Glad I ran into your blog this year. It didn't hurt much!

Verdant Earl said...

RW - same here. Wishing you the best in '09!

Michelle said...

Verdant Earl said...

Michelle - Peace out to 2008. Merry New Year!

Happy nude year? I wish my life was as clothing optional as yours.

I think the fake sloth is way creepier than the real ones. I do think those claws are pretty creepy no matter what though. Happy 2009 to you, Earl! :)

Verdant Earl said...

Jiggs - everyone's life is clothing optional. You just have to choose it, dude.

Teeni - Those claws make me wanna throw up.

When I was a kit I thought sloths were the bee's knees. Now I just think their eyes are too big.
