— this is really happening

Living liger legend

The wowie zowie in-browser Google search bar is a terrifyingly handy instrument. That as I begin to type, the handy thing foresees what I’m about to search and offers suggestions, is just a miracle. This morning it clairvoyantly hunched that by typing "Napo," I was really after "Napoleon Dynamite quotes." Can we all join together in a unanimous WTF? I have to admit that today’s direct hit gave me the willies. I offer my deepest condolences to the jilted Napoleon Bonaparte who was sadly 11th or 12th in the list of "Napo" search returns.

Anyway, the call for the 10am "Napo" search stems from a video link I just received. I had to quickly tell y’all that Napoleon’s famed would-be fictitious animal, the liger, is actually very real. I’m going to rate this video PG-13, despite there being nothing gruesome about it. The beast is just nightmarishly gargantuan; it could easily smear Jabba the Hut with a pinky claw. So it’s only fair to warn you. But he’s pretty darn cute too. Rawr.

Deb: What are you drawing?
Napoleon Dynamite: A liger.
Deb: What’s a liger?
Napoleon Dynamite: It’s pretty much my favorite animal. It’s like a lion and a tiger mixed… bred for its skills in magic.
