"Not This Wendell, Part 2. No-o-o-o!"

Sad follow-up to this post. Wendell the Canadian Wallaby has been found, dead, not far from the small zoo he had escaped from. A hopefully-appropriate tribute will appear soon in the header of this blog. Until then, a bit of hopefully-appropriate Australian funeral music…

(REVISED) This version includes the controversialracist “Abbos” verse… I mean, gee whiz, this “Australian stockman” had more respect for his pet animals than for the indigenous aborigines working for him. But then, he also had them “tan me hide when I’m dead, Fred” so civilized social norms were obviously not his thing.

And there was another version on YouTube which illustrated the “tanned his hide when he died, Clyde” verse in a most disturbing manner. No link. I’m not going to share ALL my pain on the blog.

Your Turn...
