SCORPIONS

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate THE FROG and the SCORPION and the fox as they cross the river. IT IS IN MY NATURE- says the SCORPION. IT IS MY NATURE. A SCORPION IS INDEED A SCORPION. Thanks for the Ride but sting you I must !

    

We keep an eye on the scorpion and the serpent, but we do not watch out for the millipede. Sicilian

   That’s the problem with them fables, they’re putting animals together that wouldn’t meet. I don’t know where a scorpion is knockin’ around with a frog.”
-Podcast Series 3, Episode Two

Butch glared balefully across the saloon at Tex, who had been stone dead since the scorpion he had unwittingly sat on had bitten him on the butt some half an hour or so ago, little suspecting that this was going to be his toughest staring contest since the one against old Glass-eyed Juan, during the great sand-storm of ‘42, at the height of the Arizona conjunctivitis epidemic.

“God did not give wings to scorpions.” 

If you are bitten by a scorpion in a dream, you will conquer your problems.

    

DAILY PROVERBS FROM AFRICA 

Those who go to examine the rainwater puddle will meet scorpions (around it).
(You’ll get into trouble if you’re too inquisitive.)

LIZARDS

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate LIZARDS because HE is very fond of LIZARDS. Lots of wee little Lizards live in the Cottage and in Red Hill and Auchenflower, ghekkoes were at home with Lizzy. Down at Rainbow Bay and on the Tweed Riverbank at Murwillumbah, there are lizards- big ones. Once Jim B had a blue tongue in South Coogee. It got out of the flat and a cat seemed to have bitten it in half. Well so my memory tells me. They have a lot of painted wooden lizards in the Cottage. On the white walls.

However much the beetle is afraid it will not stop the lizard swallowing it. AFRICAN.

DOUGLAS ADDAMS

“The fronting for the eighty-yard long marble-topped bar had been made by stitching together nearly twenty thousand Antarean Mosaic Lizardskins, despite the fact that the twenty thousand lizards concerned hadneeded them to keep their insides in.”

The Book decribing Milliways’ politically incorrect decor.

 The people who bind themselves to systems are those who are unable to encompass the whole truth and try to catch it by the tail; a system is like the tail of truth, but truth is like a lizard; it leaves its tail in your fingers and runs away knowing full well that it will grow a new one in a twinkling.
Ivan Turgenev

Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting, Lizard’s leg, and owlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
William Shakespeare Witches in Macbeth

From gracious Nature have I won
Such liberal bounty? may I run
So, lizard-like, within her side,
And there be safe, who now am tried
By days that painfully go on?
ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWNING

Gbogbo alangba ro dina de le, a e mo ghin na i dun.
All lizards lie on their bellies, but nobody knows which of them suffers stomach ache. (Used when some carry their problems boldly written on their foreheads to remind them that their situation is not unique and that it is a question of attitude which prevents people from showing their inner life outwardly.)
Yoruba  AFRICA

Go And copulate with yon purple lizard.” –clyde
