My Uncle Went to Nicaragua


and all I got was this lousy Metate. Kidding! I'm in *love* with it. He found it in an antique store near Grenada, Nicaragua last week. Since I've been hinting heavily that I wanted one just like his, he went out of his way to find me one.

I think it looks like a turtle. What do you see?

At first I thought it was petrified dino turd. Then I put my glasses on, and it looks like a rock. I think I need new glasses.

I was going to say a lizard carrying a bundle on his back, projecting my feeling burdened by a heavy load, and all, but then I read the Dr Z's dildo comment and I laughed so hard I lost my train of thought! Dildo wins. That's all I can see now, too.

fiwa said...

I see a Komodo dragon. That is so cool. How do you season it - do you know? Or is it just for looks?

To me, it looks like a pig getting it on with a snake..

However, it could also be the sheep and dildo.

I just know it's some kind of barnyard animal with pornographic tendencies!
