WELCOME to Friday September 21, 2018.

Today we honor the Jackalope. Kingdom: Animalia Location found: western North America. The jackalope is an antlered species of rabbit found throughout the western United States. The jackalope has two unusual qualities. First, it is highly aggressive and is willing to use its antlers to fight. (Thus, it is sometimes called the “warrior rabbit.”)
Second, it has an uncanny ability to mimic human voices. In the old West, when cowboys would gather by their campfires to sing at night, jackalopes would frequently be heard singing back, mimicking the voices of the cowboys. When chased, jackalopes use their vocal abilities to elude capture by calling out phrases such as, “There he goes, over there,” to throw pursuers off their track.

The traditional method of catching jackalopes is to lure them with whiskey, since they are extremely fond of this drink. Once intoxicated, the animal becomes slower and easier to hunt. Some people attempt to catch jackalopes in order to milk them, believing that their milk is a powerful aphrodisiac. However, it is not advised to milk a jackalope! It is curious to note, however, that jackalope milk comes out already homogenized on account of the animal’s powerful leaps. Douglas, Wyoming has declared itself to be the Jackalope capital of America because, according to legend, the first jackalope was spotted there around 1829. A large statue of a jackalope stands in the town center, and every year the town plays host to Jackalope Day, usually held in June. Jackalope hunting licenses can be obtained from the Douglas Chamber of Commerce, though hunting of jackalopes is restricted to the hours of midnight to 2 a.m. on June 31. It is common to find mounted jackalope heads in bars and homes throughout the American west. Douglas and Ralph Herrick, residents of Douglas, Wyoming, were the first to start selling such heads during the 1930s. Jackalope postcards are also a popular Western souvenir.

G U A R A N T E D T O M A K E Y O U L A F F….

The company my brother worked for had a phone system that
rerouted after-hours calls. If any calls came in on a
certain line while he was working late, Dave knew it would
be a wrong number. It got to the point where as soon as the
phone rang, Dave would pick up and say, “Psychic Hotline.
I’m sorry, but you’ve dialed the wrong number.”

The caller would often reply with something like, “But I
didn’t even ask to speak to anyone yet. How did you know I
dialed the wrong…. Oh!” (Click.)😎

Thursday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???  “What’s the most you’ve ever lost in a coin toss?”

ANSWER: No Country for Old Men! Javier Bardem’s portrayal of the sociopath, Anton Chigurh in the 2007 Best Picture film, “No Country for Old Men” won him the Best Supporting Actor Oscar. Early in the film, Chigurh asks this question of a gas station owner in southern Texas, telling the man to call the flip of his quarter. The man says that he didn’t bet anything with which to call the coin, but Chigurh states that he’s been putting the stake up his whole life. The man calls the coin correctly and receives his lucky quarter as the prize. Chigurh tells the man not to put it into his pocket with his other loose change because it’s his lucky quarter. Tossing it with the rest turns it into just another coin. Later on, Chigurh gives the same chance to Carla Jean Moss (portrayed by Kelly MacDonald) and she calls Chigurh on the situation instead saying that he’s the one who has the choice, and not the one who calls heads or tails on the coin. The film, in question, involves a drug trade gone wrong. After one man finds a case containing millions of dollars, he fights to keep it for himself, but finds others after it as well. There’s just no clean escape.
