So I'm going to Costa Rica

and the advice I keep getting from people is to "watch out for swine flu".

Well I hate to rain tamiflu on your global pandemic, but Mexico and the United States are where you have to watch out for swine flu.

The only thing I have to watch out for is sunburn and strained eyeballs from reading too much on the beach.

Also crocodiles, sharks, scorpions, venomous snakes, jaguars, dengue fever, and malaria.

And sloths.


Man, these things creep me out.

It's true. This picture of a sloth attempting (and poorly,but true to their character) to cross a paved road is creepy.

But sloths are actually quite fantastic. I am a fan of the sloth.

Have fun in Costa Rica. Bring back tales please.

wait, isn't Costa Rica like IN Mexico? by Mazatlan or something? my cousin went on a cruise...

hey, I told Zina -crosslisted on her sloth post- how when I was in Reno a couple weeks ago I saw, through a giftshop window, a baseball hat that, at first, I thought said "I (heart) sloths".

on second glance it was "slots". shucks.

Lucky! Man, I need to get back there some day. When are you going and for how long and do you want company??

I kept writing rude things. That's why my comments were deleted. Anyway, I have no inhibitions today, so here is a link to a map that shows where swine flu is. Guess where swine flu is...COSTA RICA!

Sucker.

Oh, and guess where the swine flu is not...Utah.

They are kind of creepy with that weird smile on their faces. Don't ever watch the kids show "It's a Big Big World". The main character is a giant sloth.
