Why Quokkas Are The Cutest Animals On Earth

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, reminding you that we have a comment contest going. Our goal is 70,000 comments–with only 579 left to go.

[Editor’s note: We’re wondering if there’s an Internet outage somewhere, because we haven’t heard from any of our most prolific commenters today. We also have reports of readers’ email conking out. ]

Here I’d like to turn it over to Quokka University’s life coach, Horatio the jumping spider.

Habits and Traits of Jumping Spiders

Thank you, Byron. First I’d like to say that bugs are good for you, catch as many as you can. This solves most of life’s problems. It’s always worked for me.

Anyhow, the winner of the comment contest will receive an autographed copy of Lee’s book, His Mercy Endureth Forever. If you already have it, you can hold out for the next book in the series, The Wind from Heaven, which has not yet been published but it won’t be long now.

Meanwhile, a select committee of quokkas is still working on the problem of how much tuition to charge and whether it should include a season’s pass to QU’s pick-up sticks matches.

But by all means we want to read your comments! Really, what’s the point of having six eyes if you don’t have anything to read? (That’s one for the Philosophy Dept.)

  1. Byron, you are adorable, even with potato chip crumbs on your nose. (I suppose on Rottnest Island they’re called potato crisp crumbs. But somehow that sounds like the opposite of soggy crumbs.)

  2. Wow, I finally got my email back. Just as I thought, my genius Grandson has fixed it. Now, to get caught up with over 220 mails in my inbox, to say nothing of the other two categories. Hey, I’m not complaining. So thankful for a loved one who knows how to fix things.

  3. Horatio is adorable!! Those gorgeous eyes! 🙂 <3

    As for commenting; I've been trying to spend less time on the internet lately. Not only to get stuff accomplished out in the real world, but to maintain some of my sanity points. Between politics on your side of the border (and an executive order that killed off a pipeline deal with us that was going to result in thousands of jobs that would have lifted impoverished First Nations communities out of poverty), and the pandemic insanity, I just needed to take a break. I suspect a lot of people were feeling the same way.
