Sir Blinks a Lot aka Blinky


When my new three-eyed pet toad arrives tomorrow I've decided to go with southernweirdo 's name "Sir Blinks a Lot" for his birth certificate, but we shall refer to him by j_cheney 's suggestion of "Blinky" for his nickname here in the Clubhouse.  All fine suggestions from those who chimed in. Thanks, gang, for helping me name my toad! 

T.J. (southernweirdo ) has implied that if I lick him I might unlock his magical properties. We shall see…
 
I haven't even held him yet, but I already love Blinky more than any boy could possibly love a toad!
 
 
Stay tuned. Tomorrow I'll have pix of his first day at his new home

Dang it, Marshall.

That's twice today I've been eating while at the computer desk and that creepy-arsed, yucky toad pic comes up.

Hum... Don't know how to say it, Berry, but it's only gonna get stranger from here.

Gee, I was hoping you'd love Blinky as much as I do. *sniff sniff*

I can learn to love Blinky.

Really.

Hey, speaking of weird . . .

If he cries from that middle eye, would he drown? I mean, it's right on top of his nostrils. There can't be any real evolutionary/adaptive advantage to that. Just sayin'. ;)

I'm sure Blinky will love you back.

Evoluionary/adaptive advantage? Probably not. That's why he's one of kind. But I've always wanted me a three-eyed toad and--dagnabit!--that what I order online.

"T.J. (southernweirdo ) has implied that if I lick him I might unlock his magical properties. We shall see…"

See, I know of that magic - the lick wakes up the slowteleportion effect. It gives you the ability of going on a long otherdimensional trip...

Oh, Blinky is my new travel agent. Coolness! That's the kind of fun that became popular back in 60s with the hippies. I would've been a big hit with Blinky at Woodstock. I could've started my own booth...right next to the bad acid tent.

Indeed - here is a first-hand experience recorded by a fellow traveler;

Now I'm beginning to get worried. Is this buyer's remorse?

He's like the Hyno-toad on Futurama!

And on Berry's comment about Blinky crying. When Blinky cries, he doesn't cry tears. He cries drops of Chuck Norris!

Chuck Norris, eh?

I'll make sure he doesn't have anything to cry about. When I take him places I won't carry him in my pants pocket next to my pocket knife like boys are known to do. Well, not much anyway. ;-)

"if I lick him I might unlock his magical properties...."

Or ya might get warts on yer tongue.

Hum...? Warts on my tongue or the ability to visit otherwordly dimensions like will_couvillier suggested...? I have much to mull over.

Indeed, for WHO KNOWS what magical properties warts on your tongue may give you? The ability to speak any language in the universe? Or merely (though merely may not be the word) the ability to converse with three-eyed amphibians.

You know I need one of these to watch my tea shop employees while I'm teaching my classes. You better get him mating. Could be a new business opportunity for you! ;-)

Three eyes are better than two. But I guess I'll need to find another three-eyed toad to mate Blinky with. And perhaps a private investigators license for the offspring might help. :D

"I already love Blinky more than any boy could possibly love a toad!"

...as evidenced by your thoughts on licking him? :)

We shall see what he smells like when he shows up via FedEx.

Worry not! You may not have to lick Blinky. (...unless you really, really want to...)

Wikipedia to the rescue: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychoactive_toad

You can "milk" your toad!

Let the psychoactive toad party begin!!

Some partygivers are stingy though: BYOT-Bring your own toad. I don't mind sharing Blinky. :D

Do you love him more than Neville loves Trevor?

And can Blinky see into the future?

I hate to admit it but I've never heard of Neville and Trevor. Who are they? I googled both names together and didn't get what I think you mean.

And can Blinky see into the future?

No, but since I'm making this crap up I can see into the future... and it's not a pretty one. *sigh*

I'm really surprised you got nothing googling Neville and Trevor the Toad. Harry Potter.

"No, but since I'm making this crap up..."

What is the third eye for, then?

When I put in "and" I found Harry Potter, but when I just googled "Neville Trevor" I got some CEO. I still wouldn't have known it was Harry Potter. I'm sure he'll survive without my patronage. :-)

I was reading a story in Weird Tales two evenings ago with a character with three eyes. I wondered what I'd get if I googled images with "Three Eyes" as the key words. Found the toad, and had to make up a story to go along with it. Tomorrow's when the big drama occurs. I have to do a build up on poor Blinky, ya know.

Well, then, you'd better say he can see the future, or perhaps he's the Hypnotoad from Futurama.
