I stole this from The Telegraph...photo by Kerstin Joensson/AP;.
It is wrong to steal. I'm sorry, Kerstin, but this is a glorious photo and it deserves more people seeing it. As if lorraineonline is going to trump the Telegraph. Ha.
But these are alpacas after they've been shaved. Alpacas make wool. Well, they don't call it wool. I'm sure they call it skin, or hide, or something. I'm sure they didn't sign up for humans to round them up and shave them for wool to make cardigans and scarves and things for people to sell to tourists to Argentina by the roadside. Yes, I bought some alpaca stuff once, in Argentina. Don't worry; the miserable little bastards get the last laugh: the stuff is itchy.
Alpacas are not only funny looking, they spit. It's as if they know you're going to laugh at them, so they spit and beat you to it.

I will start. I propose:
Nobody will know what that means, but trust me: I just lost 5 good friends.
