31 Dec 07Lemurs

Mike Lee of Delicious Monster fame is trying to save the lemur and needs your help.

When you first read something like this at a site with “motherfucker” in the URL, you’re likely to think “Is this a joke? Is he punking me? Does he care about lemurs or is he just trying to see how many rubes he can fit into a VW Beetle? Wait, is he just ‘saving’ lemurs so he can later cook them and eat them? What gives?”

No, Mike’s really trying to save the fucking lemur, OK?

As lemurs are cute and furry this is a great way to finish off 2007 or kick off 2008 (but donate before midnight tonight and you get into the Founding Troop).

And, let’s face it, you could use some good karma.

Look at you.

Sitting there.

Stuffing stale gingerbread men into your face, guzzling huge quantities of expired egg nog and watching that “Who’s The Boss?” boxed set your mother bought you for Christmas off your Amazon wish list.

You disgust me.

But I’m willing to put that all behind us if you’ll help save the lemur.


…think about it.

UPDATE: Need more incentive? Well, how often do you get to make a noted Mac developer cry?

    I do need to make it my New Year’s resolution to clean my laptop screen. I was about to whip out my wallet for Stew the Lepers or Save the Lentils. Lemurs,schemurs. They breed like rabbits don’t they. Just put on some Barry White and give them some cheap wine. Be a yardful by time Barry sings “Never Gonna Give You Up”.

  5. Lee says:

    What a surprise… and lemurs, too!

  6. CB says:

    And what’s with 1:27 pm, anyway?!? I think you’e in a time warp, John.

  7. coolhandluke says:

    yeah, what a stupid time to post… jeez.

  8. Jay in the iom says:

    top frickin ten!

    9:48 here…..

  9. Jay in the iom says:

    and now there’s a post there, about the fact that there’s a post here.


    “I’m Lord Thievey, master of amenities.”

    Is quite possibly going on my email signature.

    Lemurs? Pshaw! I would rather save the Dwarf Blue Sheep. Details at:


    I mean, if there are no more Dwarf Blue Sheep, where will I get those little blue sweaters that my daughter likes so much?

  11. Seano says:

    Lemurs make way too much noise… Did’nt any one see Madagascar? Lemurs “like to move it ,move it”

  12. Ash Ponders says:

    If you don’t save the lemurs, Be sure I cant find you (I have a million air miles, so its possible!) because if I can, I promise to hurt you.

    Yes, Lemurs mean significantly more to me than you and your livelihood. Or your manhood.

  13. Rip Ragged says:

    Please excuse my crass ignorance, but what the hell is a lemur? I’m still trying to save the trees, baby seals, the motherfucking whales, reduce my carbon footprint, and now freaking LEMURS?

    Will this ever end? I’d also like to save up enough for a new Stratocaster, but that ain’t happening.

    Worst of all, the Seahawks got beat by Atlanta. At-(frigging 3 and 12, playing with an insurance salesman under center and a head coach who still hasn’t learned where they keep the spare batteries) -Lanta. That just blows.

  14. shawk says:

    Yeah. Sure. Fine. I actually donated.
    Useful and this site.. it just seems wrong.

  15. Nxxx says:

    Moltz, you on a percentage?

    Rip, Isn’t a Stratocaster an old propellor airliner? What you gonna do with that?

    Oh and happy thingys.

  16. Ace Deuce says:

    I’m sorry, but lemurs are doomed. As are we all.

    Happy New Year!

    Naw, The plane is a Stratocrusier.
    Anderson Cooper flying in a Stratocrusier makes it a Stratocaster

    Are you sure this is not a typo for Mark Lemar, who was dropped by or left Buzzcocks?

  20. Sam says:

    I use DVDpedia, so I’m going to have to find an alternate animal to save. The Tasmanian Devils sound like a candidate. Although significantly less cute, I like the way they twirl around and create a little dust cloud when they move.

  21. This Is What My Comment says:

    Where do I sign up to Save the Lentils? It’s just like saving a tree but without the huge commitment.

  22. Huh? says:

    I’m still trying to save my soul.
    Jewel hasn’t been much help.


  23. iMoo says:

    moo. cluck cluck cluck.

  24. Huh? says:

    cluck cluck, moo moo moo cluck?

  25. iMoo says:

    cluck. moo moo moo, cluck.

  26. Huh? says:

    Well I NEVER!!!!!

    moo mooooooo moo clu.. moo.

  27. iMoo says:

    and your pants too.

  28. Huh? says:

    My Pants™ resent any implication in this conversation.
    They’re behaving today. Leave them alone….

  29. Rip Ragged says:

    Save the lentils is a bit narrow. An all out effort to save our precious legumes should not arbitrarily omit snow peas, soybeans and peanuts.

  30. Think different! Buy a PC!
