ATTENTION FOR A SECOND, YO:
Real talk, this animal (the Ordovician Helmet crab, aka the Horseshoe crab, aka the Atlantic’s most at-risk shelled animal) is of a species that is close to 450 million years old. They are considered endangered, and often wash up on the shores of Long Island (this big lady crab was at TR park in Oyster Bay)
Note: these animals are often used to extract their blue blood and cure diseases. They help the ocean out big time. And they are one of the longest-surviving species on the planet. They’re washing up and people don’t think to/are scared to save them because of their deceivingly harmless barbs.
Take note, friends. Their barbs are NOT stingers. They cannot hurt you. Their pinchers aren’t pinchers, they’re just little legs that are actually really soft! The barb tail they have is actually what they use to stick into the ocean floor or the sand when waves knock them over or they flip onto their backs by accident. And you can help them out by flipping them back over very quickly and helping them scuttle back into the water if you see them struggling.
This is way important. Just call me the Sarah McLachlan of horseshoe crabs.
shockingly, kids are sick and tired of paying hundreds of dollars for overpriced stacks of paper!!!!!! who wouldve thought!!!!!!

Remus Arthur Potter, you were named after two men who looked out for my safety and cared about my well-being out of altruism and decency rather than because I was a tool for them to use or because I was someone’s son.

I think every writer/artist has that one story/drawing that gets completely skipped over, and they’d never say it aloud, but inside they’re like
'fuck all y'all, that's one of the best things I've done'
plus one story/drawing that everyone loves
'really? that one?’

what no that’s not it
The word for fox in Norwegian really is also slang for blunt. Ylvis themselves said so on the interview they did with Ellen. But the real inspiration behind the song was to make a song with a very catchy beat, but with the stupidest lyrics they could think of. No, really.
Since they got a song contract as a gift from two well-renown music producers as payment for doing a funny sketch for their birthdays, they thought it would be funny to pretend they got the biggest opportunity of their careers and waste it on a flop song. For comedy. Seriously. And it went completely wrong as they accidentally made a hit song instead.
Basically they’re two big goofs that were as surprised as everyone else when their comedy sketch became a internet sensation and if you don’t love them it’s because you don’t know them yet.
Let’s spread this around. I’m so tired of people dismissing Ylvis as stupid stoners without understanding anything about who they are.
Yep! What they said.
I attempted to contact UltraFacts twice about the removal of this post to no avail. Either they don’t look at asks or are blatantly ignoring it.
Also, check out their other music!!!!! They make incredibly clever, catchy, and diverse songs that span from rock anthems, classic rock, to musical duets, to jazz/soul, rock, rap, and yes, electronic pop/dance. If you pay attention to the lyrics, you can catch the social commentary and satire. Ylvis says that they are just comedians, but there’s much more to them than a cool song about a fox.
it works best if you imagine her standing atop a mountain of corpses instead of the nondescript rock formation but I was too lazy to draw that
actually though you know what my absolute favourite thing about the harry potter franchise is
hagrid names the giant three-headed mythical creature dog “fluffy” and the docile domestic hound “fang”
