Licking Zoos

When petting is not enough.

Wandering around the county fair yesterday, I came to a "petting zoo". Ordinarily, I avoid areas where animals are penned, but cloying sweetness was what I craved, so I stopped to watch. Gosh, those children and those baby animals were cute! But I noticed a little girl in the corner of the pen licking a bunny. Before I could ask her what they taste like, the ranger lady (petting policeperson?) came over and took the bunny away from her, causing her to cry. Her mother came over and an argument ensued. As I leaned over to hear the discussion, a llama came over and licked my face! Wow! It was very warm and wet and slippery. If I had had my razor, I could have shaved half my face. It seemed unfair to me that the ranger didn't come over and take me away from the llama. Anyhow, except for porcupines, why can't tots lick baby animals? Anyone who saw that bunny would want to lick it.

Licking them *is* OK... [sirrobin, Aug 10 2001, last modified Oct 04 2004]

       [Melanerpes] - you are one disturbed individual.

       Mmmm... fur... fleas...   

       No, no, no... Unless they were made of ice cream.

       There's good eatin' on one of them...

       Will there be any of those halluginogenic toads?

       They'll be issued at the gate.

       Use all available means to avoid ever being licked by a camel. I'm serious about that, but it reminds me...

       If petting zoos taste anything like they smell, no thanks.

       did YOU want to lick the bunny?

       Silly rabbit! Licks are for kids.

       I think it ought to be OK to lick animals in a licking zoo as long as the animals are allowed to return the favor although many of them (snapping turtles, starfish, turkey vultures) are not really licky sorts. Probably some animals that are puzzled by the human habit of touching with the hands would find licking more acceptable. Isn't it brutal and insensitive of us to impose our silly primate modes of interaction on other species? Perhaps we should also nuzzle animals that understand nuzzling, and sniff animals that sniff each other in greeting. I draw the line at investigating bungholes, though.

       beauxeault, hey! who are you callin' a moose?

       How about just a place where one could go to get licked by a llama?
mrthingy, Oct 04 2001

       Llamas also tend to spit green juice into people's faces - I saw this once. Not a pretty sight.

       Ever lick camel toes?
thumbwax, Feb 13 2002

       Sounds very dangerous.

       You missed a cunning display of lingual prowess.

       Ba-dum tsshhhh!
waugsqueke, Feb 14 2002

       Mmmm... rabbit fur.... mmmmm....

       Until thumbwax's comment I was thinking of hairballs.
