Right, I understand, that title makes this post look ridiculously interesting. Let me be the first to assure you that it is not. I am seriously scraping the bottom of the barrel here because nothing made me furious today and since I’m not finished with what I’m doing otherwise, I have not as yet got anything even vaguely amusing to say about that. I also haven’t read any blogs yet, perhaps inspiration will afflict me later.
I have a pimple.
It is a blind pimple and it’s on the tip of my nose. It hurts like all hell and it makes me look like Rudolph the bloody red nose reindeer. It’s a little embarrassing, especially so when my wife see’s me, points and laughs. Sympathy, dammit, is what I want.
Hear that scraping sound.
Llamas appear to have originated from the central plains of North America about 40 million years ago. They migrated to South America and Asia about 3 million years ago. By the end of the last ice age (10,000–12,000 years ago) camelids were extinct in North America. As of 2007, there were over 7 million llamas and alpacas in South America and, due to importation from South America in the late 20th century, there are now over 100,000 llamas and 6,500–7,000 alpacas in the US and Canada.
Llamas know the world wasn’t created 6000 years ago.
