of hairs and hares and origins of stuff we say

i'm trying to concentrate on writing this week, but i came upon something of extreme interest that must be shared.

do you have a wild hair up your butt?

or a wild hare?

i always thought it was hair, but i did a google search and some sources say it's HARE. explanation: if you had a hare in your colon, you'd be hopping all over the place.

on another subject: pollen count. i wonder if they make a pollen count meter for blog templates... i'm sure i could waste a few hours looking for one. pollen count here is over 2000. i think it was 3000 two days ago. 900 is considered extreme. i'm high on actifed, so simply keep walking if this makes no sense.

Makes sense. A wild "hair" up a one's butt is probably more common than we'd like to admit. A wild "hare?" Not so much. In fact, a domesticated one would probably be an issue also. :D

Alex said...

I hope it's not a "hare" because OUCH those claws would hurt, and the inevitable infection which would occur from those less-than-hygenic bunny scratches would just be nightmarish

Plus how do you explain THAT to your proctologist?

"Well, Doc, it's like this, I had a wild hare up my butt to channel Richard Gere..."

*uhem* I had better find something productive to do now.

Jer said...

I'd never thought about it. But hare does sound correct, and now my butt's uncomfortable. Yikes, you won't believe it, but I have a wild h............

jason, a domestic one seems so much worse for some reason. i guess because it should know better.

alex, we may have stumbled upon the very root of this whole richard gere thing. :D i'll bet the people at snopes will be pleased to finally know the idea's origin.

jer, LOL! next time we see your squirming around we'll know why....

I read about a guy in Ripley's Believe It Or Not who sneezed one time so hard from a high pollen count that a wild hare came flying out of his butt. There was no picture, though. :)

anne frasier said...

LOL!!!


i just noticed that today is 4/20. that explains this thread....

now i must go bite the head off a peep.

if i can stop laughing. i'd hate to choke to death on a peep.

My guess would be hair. But then, for some, that might not be all that unusual.

Oooh. What an image. Yikes.

Kelly Parra said...

Funny about the hare up the butt. lol!

It's strange here. All it's been lately is rain, rain, rain for most of March and Apr. The first sign of the sun for a few days and I'm sneezing every which way. the nose and eyes are itching like a beach. =D

Alex said...

I guess this explains "what's up doc".

*snicker* I crack myself up. So to speak.

anne frasier said...

kelly, i saw that CA is getting tons of rain. ugh!

spring/summer/fall in Minnesota is why people endure the winter. it's been gorgeous here -- except for that pollen thing!

alex -- YOU crack ME up! what's up, doc. that was my first big laugh of the day -- before i even shuffled into the kitchen. :D

Waldo said...

Great post Anne! My first LOL today. Hope I didn't disturb my cubee. It's mind numbingly quiet in here.

anne frasier said...

waldo, i take credit for starting the nonsense, but everybody else just rolled with it. :D I've read it several times, and am still laughing. not sure how i'll top this subject next week....
