Crap—it's 'Tocktober!!!

Crap—i KNEW I forgot something.

I was all worried about the cuteness of possums and if they made the cut or not and COMPLETELY forgot about 'Tocktober.

Forgive moi. Chief Sister Officer had to remind me in our daily carpool. She's all: "You knooooow, it's like, 'Tocktober, don't yuh?" and I was all "D'oh!!!"


Thank the lo' that Jimmy T. was READY, even before I was. Jimmy, I owe you one, bro.

Em, I agree with you. The perfect thing to see before hitting the hay tonight!

It´s the interwebs on the interwebs.

Caught on a web cam.

If you post another 'tocks picture like "Tick 'Tocks", I shall throw something. Possibly "up".

I love how if you follow his neck down, you can see his little head nibbling on the bottom....or maybe he's doing the cutest head stand evar.

Monochrome swan. So artistic.

Sorry for teh dubble post! *shakes fist angrily at comp*

*snuggles comp* How can I stay mad at you!?

 |  Oct 03, 2007 at 09:57 PM

Whoo! That is some quality tockage! :-D

Everyone's got different tastes, so it's good to keep in mind we can't all be completely entertained all the time. Me, I dislike Cats n' Racks, but I'm certainly not going to complain about how that shouldn't be here. If I want to see only pictures of dog faces, or only pictures of cats or whatever, there's always Google image search.

Basically, my point is... YAY CUTE OVERLOAD!!!

 |  Oct 03, 2007 at 09:58 PM

I've never gotten 'tocked at by a swan before, so I'm not sure what I think of it. However, seeing as the 'tock-side is sure to be far less violent than the beak side, I think I can deal. :P

 |  Oct 03, 2007 at 10:10 PM

Thankfully, that's a clean set of 'tocks. We used to have a pet duck when I was a kid, and it wasn't always so pretty.

 |  Oct 03, 2007 at 10:12 PM

Tocks and flappy, webby feets. Perfection!

 |  Oct 03, 2007 at 10:22 PM

what I love about this is that it is so ungracefull and unSwan like. Awesome!

 |  Oct 03, 2007 at 10:37 PM

It's also Rocktober! I'm going to combine the celebrations and rock out with my tocks out.

Don't question it.

 |  Oct 03, 2007 at 10:41 PM

As long as Tocktober doesn't include dingleberries, I'll join the festivities!

 |  Oct 03, 2007 at 10:48 PM

is anyone else impressed that this bird has a six foot stretch from tocks to neck?? cuz the article that's linked under the pic says so, but that sounds waaaaayyy too long to be real. come on ppl, six whole feet of cute? Can it be real???!?!?!

 |  Oct 03, 2007 at 10:52 PM

It's so clean, just like a floofy new down comfort(er)ables! How could you not want to see that before bed? I'd snuggle under mine if one of the dogs hadn't done something unmentionable on it... :P

It's just swan holiday after another around here. I supposed I'll just have to get goosed to it.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 12:35 AM

Well obviously it's the "downward duck" pose. Oh and it's my birthday. I will rock my tocks.

'Tock to me, Goose! -- Top Gun

It's late, that's the best I can do.

Meg, when do the 'Tocktoberfest calendar submissions have to be in?

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 01:03 AM

My bleary, sleep-deprived eyes thought they saw...a dollop of whippedcream with legs. Back to bed...I wish.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 02:30 AM

I see your tock and raise you 5 ........


Those are my duckies!!

I agree, clean, floofy tocks!!

OMG! Sabrina its Rocktobter for you to? I beginning to think you go to school...hmmm...

In Awwwe
 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 05:11 AM

Yay! More fluffy birdy butts!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 05:32 AM

KG Carrie -awww..hyperventilating.

and Meg - clearly the possum was practicing mind control. Some of the skerwls were teaching it to him. (but relax, they are not, as of yet, in cahoots with the otterz)

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 05:41 AM

Aubrey - You outdo yourself. I am in awe(brey).
Wonderful beautiful snowy white 'tocks! YAY for 'Tocktober, my favorite month!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 06:00 AM

That's a whole lot-a-tushy!!!

Perfect for a Wingsday in 'Tocktober!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 06:30 AM

The guy was out drinking in a bar late last night and his pal said, ¨Bottoms up!¨ and...well, there was a slight misinterpretation.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 06:59 AM

To TOCKTOBER Bottoms Up!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:05 AM

I'm disturbed by the lack of the head.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:08 AM

i had no idea how beautiful swan 'tocks could be (and duck 'tocks too- k,g carrie)

thanks for yet another lesson learned on C.O.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:08 AM

cocktober! someone should send in pics of cute dewds holding roosters!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:23 AM

ah! i love this photo.
note the lil feets perfectly balancing the tocks in a straight upright posit, so as to get ALL of the goodies off the bottom of the pond.

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 07:30 AM

meg, how irreSWANsible of you to forget TOCKtober!

o for shame ;)

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 08:04 AM

Ahh, I'll have to run to the duck pond this afternoon and collect my own pics. Meanwhile...

*Sits back, awaiting the onslaught of Corgi 'tocks*

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 09:26 AM

Tocktober!!!! Swantastic!!!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 09:31 AM

He bobs in the river all day long
His 'tocks they're a bobbin' from dusk till dawn
All the little peeps on Overload
Saw those 'tocks once and they were sold

'tocks a-bobbin' ('tocks 'tocks 'tocks)
'tocks a-bobbin' ('tocks 'tocks 'tocks)

When we see those 'tocks a-bobbin', man they're really really outta sight

Every single peep on Cute Overload
Waits for the month about much is told
It comes in the Autumn, before we know
We're watching those 'tocks saying go bird go

'tocks a-bobbin' ('tocks 'tocks 'tocks)
'tocks a-bobbin' ('tocks 'tocks 'tocks)

A wordy little raven ith his first glance
Knew that his 'tocks never stood a chance
When those 'tocks started bobbin' well bless my soul
His 'tocks shocked the buzzard and the oriole

He bobs in the river all day long
His 'tocks they're a bobbin' from dusk till dawn
All the little peeps on Overload
Saw those 'tocks once and they were sold

'tocks a-bobbin' ('tocks 'tocks 'tocks)
'tocks a-bobbin' ('tocks 'tocks 'tocks)

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 09:42 AM

I like big 'tocks and I can not lie.
You other Peeps can't deny
When a swan struts in with a itty bitty face and a cream floof in your face
you go SQUEE!!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 10:07 AM

Mr Gator says if this month is Tocktober, next month should be Nosevember.

little gator
 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 10:36 AM

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 10:52 AM

bugmom- heelarious!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 10:57 AM

I see two small black birds pinching a big white pike. What are you tocking about?

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 11:08 AM

kel13123, Trumpeter Swans can get to six feet, and Whooper Swans pretty close. They can also weigh almost forty pounds. That is a lot of Qte!

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 01:22 PM

i wonder what would happen is you just reached down and gave those tocks a lil pinch?

 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 02:04 PM

Am I the only one who thinks that, in context, "crap" is a... uh... unfortunately graphic exclamation in the title? :D

It sure did make me laugh though...

just me
 |  Oct 04, 2007 at 04:06 PM

bugmom- you rock my world.
