Theme Thursday - Animal


Sorry. Wasn’t that what you wanted?


Enough of this monkey business. This theme’s been dogging me all week. Quit badgering me.

I stopped my horsing around and I beavered away on this until morning: a veritable night owl. Now I can crow about the results.

Take a gander at this list of animal similes. Go hog-wild and think of your own answers. Do any definitions apply to you? Don’t be chicken and clam up - you can’t outfox me.

Hey… hey come back!

as proud as a _____
as wise as an _____
as blind as a _____
as strong as an _____
as quiet as a_____
as slippery as an _____
as hairy as a _____
as stubborn as a_____
as sly as a _____
as weak as a _____
as busy as a _____
as slow as a _____
as fat as a _____

Do you ever get compared to an animal or told you have animal characteristics? Do you see traits in yourself?

I’m as pampered as a kitten and as curious as a cat but I’m like a dog with a bone when presented with a puzzle.

Share your animal characteristics with me. Be rude if you like. Oh, oh. Now my goose is cooked!

Oh gee... okay. I'm as hairy as a lion, I'm as tiny as a mouse, I'm as giggly as a hyena, I'm definitely as curious as a cat, I get as cranky as a chimp in a zoo, I'm as talkative as a parrot. In the morning I'm as grumpy as a hibernating bear. Before coffee I'm as slow as a sloth, after coffee I'm as bouncy as a kangaroo. Ciao for now, i'm as sleepy as a boa constrictor after it has swallowed all of the above.

Brian Miller said...

Anna said...

Colette Amelia said...

Lizzy Frizzfrock said...

Very cute post. Guess no one said it has to be a real live animal.

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

I have been told I resemble Edward. I think it's the colouring. I quite certain it is not the blue tongue.

Leah said...

I think I'm in love with Animal...

Ok then, here you go:

as proud as a seagull hitting a bulls eye from overhead at the beach

as wise as a cat lazily watching its owner scoop up its poop

as blind as a possum partying far too late and stuck crossing the busy street in broad daylight

as strong as a husky as it drags you down the path from it’s leash going after something its interested in

as quiet as your dog pacing under the table for accidental scraps

as slippery as a coyote looking for a suburban snack

as hairy as a malamute shedding in August

as stubborn as a bull dog not letting go of its favorite chew toy

as sly as a pride of lions taking down a stray elephant at night because they know it cannot see

as busy as a pooping rabbit

as slow as a sloth; and damn proud of it

as fat as a hippo conveniently concealing that fact by submerging underwater

The Clever Pup said...

Woohoo VE. VEry Good.

I'm feeling chipper as a chipmunk 'cause the sun is shining and I have a bowlful of almonds to nibble on(and no, I don't store them in my cheek)and a little free time to check in on some favorite blog places..
I like that you chose Animal as your "animal" for the theme-makes me want to watch some Muppet Shows right now.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I have only been to Munich train station, I wish we lived more in the south, the sun does not shine much in Bremen, but it is beautiful if you like gray. Have a great day.

Kris said...

I've been told that I have eyes like a jersey cow.

On occasion, I can get as randy as a rogue donkey.
