A Drive-By Post

Today I’m doing All The Things to get ready for Thanksgiving. I’m not sure how a holiday for two people can be so complicated, but there you have it.

So I’ll leave you a few things to ponder:

-How does a centaur wear pants? And would he use a backpack or a pack saddle?

-Do mermaids use waterproof mascara?

-If a whale covers its blowhole, is it wearing a hat or a face mask?

-Why does a lap-sitting cat get comfortable and look utterly adorable at the exact moment you need to go to the bathroom?

-Who decided that ‘blue raspberry’ was a legitimate flavor, and why would someone do that to a perfectly good raspberry?

And other such silliness. Happy Thanksgiving, all!

  1. How does a centaur wear pants? And would he use a backpack or a pack saddle?

    Most centaurs I know don’t wear pants and wonder why they should wear pants.

    Now, those minotaurs should wear pants. Sorry Ox. [Crazy Grin]

    1. Actually, it depends on how much he needs to carry.

      A human-styled back-pack might hold all he needs to carry so why bother with a saddle pack?

  2. (from a centaur infantryman from an unused story)

    depends how accessible he needs it to be, how far his torso and arm reach are, etc.

    1. Talking about crazy. I saw that “centaur infantryman” and wondered what kind of critter a “centaur cavalryman” would ride. [Crazy Grin]

      1. lol. I know, i just classified him as infantry… grunt with a rifle. the heavy weapons guys were different, lol

  3. 1. How does a centaur wear pants? He doesn’t. He honors them more in the breeches than in the observance.

    2. If a whale covers its blowhole, is it wearing a hat or a face mask? Neither. It’s a handkerchief (or, in this case, a finkerchief).

    3. Why does a lap-sitting cat get comfortable and look utterly adorable at the exact moment you need to go to the bathroom? It’s a matter of e-lap-sed time.

    See? 🙂

  4. And would he use a backpack or a pack saddle?

    Depends on who is responsible for loading and unloading, and how the centaur’s joints and muscles work.

    1. Now you’ve got me wondering how a centaur would bathe. Can he wash his own rear legs?

      Do horses even need bathing? I assume after walking through mud or something like that, but in the course of day to day life? I have no idea. Is brushing down required or just considerate? Blake, are you here?

      I assume everyone is familiar with the calming mantra of: “If you think you’re frustrated, imagine a T-Rex trying to masturbate,” so I won’t go there. Oh. Wait.
