Raccoon, rinse, repeat

I’ve alluded to this particular photo for a few years, for the benefit of some of my readers (Does 5 count as some?).

Anyway, it’s over the jump – the rumored (rumoured to at least three of you) raccoon photo, taken in 1993 at an acquaintance’s residence.

No raccoons were harmed, molested or sodomized in the making of this photo, nor was any alcohol involved. After 15 years, no signs of rabies infection has been detected (on my part, at least).


  1. I am confused. Is it a friendly raccoon riding on your shoulder? Or a vampire raccoon gnawing on your jugular?

  2. Raccoons run rampant in my neck of the woods.
    Three were captured in the house across my back lane this summer.

    We had the trapper in our backyard a couple of times but all that they could catch with their sradine bait was bloody cats…which don’t tear up my garbage but crap in my flower beds.
    I’d rather have Raccoons…
    does that make me a bad person?

  3. Oh that just make you romantic you are drawn in by those silky little masks.

  4. Since FFE’s hair matches the raccoon maybe he ought to wear the cute little mask too.

  5. FFE may be much younger


    I’m still so much GrAyer

    Oh BTW

    We don’t have racoons over here ….. but are they edible (if yes, don’t tell Bunky Strutts !!!)

  8. Senor FFE

    err … ummmm ….

    You must reassure the Young Racoon when he readeth this Post, commemorating his starting out on his Actor’s career with a photo-oppoertunity with one of America’s most interesting Future Journalists

    The sharp heeled Lady meaneth doUGHnuts

    Did the famous Tree-Murderer miss his Career as a Haarvaard Professor because he couldn’t spell after going to a Colonial School

    Rejected by the snobbish British Army who objected to his Virginin drawl, this left him able only to join a Revolting Army

  9. M. L’Eagle,

    I agree with you. Donuts, UGH.
    You might have been charmed by the Committee to Re-unite with England headed by an old beau of mine during his graduate days at the University of Virginia — quotha!

    As a constitutional curmudgeon, I subscribed heartily and had the role of singing God Save the Queen at the annual “Interdependence Day” observance on July 4. I baked the scones too, but that was back in the days when I could stand to f*** with baking.

    I suppose Virginians wouldn’t have sided with theTree-Murderer and his reVolting Friends if they had realized what was going to happen to them at Gettysburgh 87 yeears later


    We appreciate that that sagacious sharp-clawed Animal could doubtless look after himself

    ….. but are you able to reassure us that NO Journalist was injured in the making of that Photo or before, judging by the face

  11. The blurry face might involve fermented beverages, as in the expression, “I’m out of my face.”

  12. “Sagacious!” I gotta use that word more often… like “hand me that sagacious butter knife” or, “you look quite sagacious in that tight sweater, Babs.”

    Of course the ultimate put down would be, “My raccoons are more sagacious than yours.”

  13. What is a Plurality of the Bunkian Racoon ?

    ???? A Sagacity of ‘Coons

    Comment by G Eagle Esq — November 5, 2008 @ 4:27 pm

  14. Ooh! Sagacity! I gotta use that word more often…
