Out walkies this morning, I incautiously went too near the farm fence (the farm being closed to the public on Mondays, and the two-legged staff being prone to late arrival, especially on drizzlesome mornings such as this).
The Dread Guardian of the Farm pounced! From her lurking spot on the fence onto the back of my neck!
Oops, that came out a bit blurry, as action shots will. Let's try again.
Yeah, that captures the moment a bit better.
Darn critter kept trying to rub my head off. I eventually managed to dislodge her, back onto the cold, damp fence.
A bit later, someone came along and opened the office and presumably let her in and fed her.
Consider a skunk with little horns. Mephitistopheles?
Did Pepé Le Pew ever meet Ma'am'selle Hepzibah?
Would a big tribble, the color of Admiral Kirk's hairpiece and equipped with ear-warming flaps, be an Ushatner? (And if it leaked a controlled amount of heat from head to ambient via a thermoelectric module, it could squirrel away energy to be emitted as a "coo" whenever enough was stored! Or... hm. External thermoelectric module with one side exposed and the other insulated. Cools down outdoors, then generates coo-power as it warms up indoors!)
Two other random-but-somewhat-serious ideas showed up this morning; one relates to a currently-dormant project for a client and appears to be not immediately useful (but worth filing away), and the other is utterly pointless but might become a product anyway, because fun-fun-silly-willy, and anyway it's sometimes worth putting a few days and a hundred bucks or so into R&D just to see if something will sell.
