"THESE MEN HAVE A DELIGHTFUL HOBBY"...

In this world, you never know if this is innocent or some kind of clandestine furry conference, unbeknownst to the meerkat center people...



The visitors from this group hailed from four different countries. One man was from France, one from Finland, another from Canada, and the last from the United States. They each flew to Los Angeles where they met at the airport and rented two vans. Each vehicle carried large, mysterious boxes in the back. These men, it turns out, have a delightful hobby. They all have chosen a special animal as their "alternate" personality and designed elaborate, custom costumes for their individual characters; much like the ones you see at Disneyland or other theme parks. The man from France told us he had a meerkat costume and he wanted to have an "up close and personal" encounter with our critters dressed as his favorite animal. Shortly after the visitors arrived, our guest from Paris disappeared into the visitor's cottage with an enormous box. Soon, the biggest "meerkat" that has every graced Fellow Earthlings' Wildlife Center emerged from the cottage.




All joking aside, though, I highly recommend the meerkat center. We almost always sponsor a meerkat there...And, yes, I have submitted the link to BoingBoing.

In addition, there are the alien baby photos from the same center, from the VanderWorld site...

(Evil Monkey: "Just how naive are you, Jeff? OF COURSE those are FURRIES!" Jeff: "You're sure." Evil Monkey: "You don't come all the way from France with your elaborate costumes to visit a meerkat center and NOT be a furry." Jeff: "But, maybe they were on vacation and--" Evil Monkey: "At a furry convention, probably." Jeff: "Well, it could all be innocent." Evil Monkey: "Those poor, poor defiled meerkats..." Jeff: "And what if they were furries? Nobody got hurt. It's harmless." Evil Monkey: "IF they were furries, they were there under kinda false pretenses, don't you think?" Jeff: "I dunno. I just like the dislocation of the giant meerkat with the small one...spooky.")

Honestly not meaning to besmirch furries, which, as I understand it, is an innocent thing, really, as these things go. But the juxtaposition of images is a bit surreal, don't you think?

I can just imagine that giant meerkat head glued to a plate...

I wonder when the folks from Homeland Security will come round to make sure this isn't some covert attempt to radicalise local meerkats. Or would they send the Park Rangers to do that task? Who would have jurisdiction there?

Furries are actually quite upstanding folks. They create artwork, write stories, and dress up in animal costumes. They've also donated well over $100,000 to various animal-related charities over the years.
