That’s right, Blogmockers. Tomorrow is International Weigh Your Lemur Day, so get out your graph paper and tally sheets, line ’em up and set ’em down. If you use a digital scale be sure to cover it properly so that the inevitable little lemur leaks don’t damage the expensive electronics.

I can’t remember how many (supposedly) waterproof scales I’ve had to return over the years. It always ends in an argument with the salesperson, right up until I drop the bombshell:

“Look. This scale can’t even sustain a bladder full of lemur piss. I’ll show you. Wait here for a minute.”

Now, I don’t own a lemur, nor do I have a bladder of lemur piss to produce at a moment’s notice, but you’d be surprised at how fast you can get a damaged waterproof scale replaced with that simple browbeating argument.

And speaking of digital scales damaged by lemur piss, it’s time for The Overnight Open Thread.

We're not easily offended and don't want people to think they have to walk on eggshells around here (like at another place that shall remain nameless) but of course, there is a limit to everything.
