Back to the Zoo

Back when I posted I'm Famous!, Madge suggested I order a back copy of the San Francisco Chronicle to keep as a souvenir. So I did. It finally arrived yesterday (now that's snail mail!). Here's the editorial page:

Back Story:

On August 26-29 of 2005, the London Zoo presented an exhibit known as Human Zoo, in which Real! Live! Humans! were put on display in an old bear enclosure next to the reptile house. It was so ridiculous. The one good thing about HZ is that it inspired me to write 3.5 really good posts in which I pretended to be a participant. Debra Saunders, a columnist in California, read my blog and wrote about me in her column. I am so tickled by this, that I thought I'd post about it all over again. Which I just did.

Relive the Magic:

Human Zoo Prequel: I Got a New Job!

Human Zoo I: I Want My Life Back

Human Zoo II: This Place is a Zoo ... Literally

Human Zoo III: Home Sweet Home

Now I'm just waiting for Human Zoo II. If it doesn't happen in London, maybe it'll happen here in Blogland.

Ok, that "Where Babies Come From" was goddamn horrible. Just awful, I tell you! Awful and wrong. Wrawful.

I'm still swooning from the time of your Zooscapades. That was good times!

What? Guys can too swoon!

I so want a copy of that newspaper too!

This was one of my all time favorite blogland stories. I loved your placemat story.

BeauBi... I love your new word: "wrawful". I may have to use it in a sentence today.

FRITZ said...

I STILL am impressed with your blogging in that you fooled a journalist. You are like a demi-goddess, or something.

Besides, you had me fooled!

Freiya said...

ah, the human zoo incident, happy days, happy days :) it was that that brought me to your hallowed pages for the first time.....

Mad Ethel said...

So does this officially make you famous? If so, I want your autograph.

Used Hack said...

Fritz, it's not that tough to fool a journalist. Trust me. ;)

SG, you need to frame that. It's just priceless.

BTW, my word-veri is "imaklupg"

Sounds like a pornstar with a speech impediment. :)

Madge said...

I am so happy you did this! Hooray!

(I saw your new avatar on blog de Fritz. Ack! Too funny.)

HAAAA HAAAAA..
Having never "lived" the Zoo stories, I didn't feel the need to "re" live them. So, I just plain "lived" them.

Trust me, just plain old being a receptionist [and not having to run and scream] lands you at the bottom of ANY p.o. Especially the one that takes place between all the cousins at Christmas.

Pizzle said...

LMAO!!!!

OMG...

I was drinking a bottle of water and almost puked. Your avatar is AWESOME!

Wow...

jiggs said...

Awesome!

Lee Ann said...

Wow! That is soooo cool!

B.O.B.I. said...

Your new avatar made me vomit in my mouth. I'm afraid I'll have to ask that you cuddle with me tonight for recompense. Monkey can come, too.

Sleep Goblin said...

This still cracks me up! I mean, I was fooled, but I wasn't writing a published editorial on you either!

jamwall said...

congrats on your new found fame spinnerina! i heard of the human zoo stunt a while back and thought of it as incredibly cheesy. you'd think they would work harder covering up some of the white pasty thighs and man-titties.

i was thinking of marketing oversized fig leafs in case someone attempts this again...what do you think?

Jodes said...

that is way cool

Monkey said...

I'm showing up here for the cuddling? Cuddle commences now?

Oh and I saw your HNT at the Back Row. Great manipulation of sushi oh Goddess of Photoshop!
