And much to their surprise after a lifetime of eating ants, the anteaters described the flamingos taste as that of chicken.

Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffian anteaters can say “Ni” at will to Swedish flamingos. There is a pestilence upon this land! nothing is sacred. Even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress at this point in time.

Now we REALLY know the world is coming to an end.

Anteaters attacking flamingos.

Earthquakes in Japan.

Earthquakes in Mexico.

Nuclear radiation contaminating the world.

Gasoline prices rising every day.

And most importantly, almost 1/2 of Americans think that moron in the White House is doing a good job!

Swedish Flamingos? An ant eater?

They deserve to die. Ant eaters aren’t much faster than a sloth and birds should have been able to out flank this one.

Please remove me from the Anteater Ping List.

While I have been a longtime Anteater supporter, recent rumors of concerted anti-flamingo rhetoric disturbed me greatly.

I even brushed aside allegations of flamingo muggings by Anteaters as possibly the antics of the Anteater's Local 534 in New Jersey.

But with the escalation into gruesome flamingo murder my support has withered, nay, I now denounce them.

Now I must go out in my yard and spray paint my loving birds black, and hope that marauding bands of Anteaters mistake them for one-legged crows.

There ought to be laws against high-capacity anteaters. Think of the women and chilrun! Of course, some unreasonable people bitterly clinging to their Bibles and anteaters will argue that when anteaters are outlawed, only outlaws will have anteaters. Its a crazy world.
