Hey, Baby—how YOU Dune?

Know then, that is is the year 10191. In this time, the most precious substance in the universe is the spice Melange.  The spice extends life. The spice expands consciousness. The spice softens hands while you do dishes.  The spice exists on only one desolate, dry planet in the entire universe, guarded by the fearsome giant sand-llamas.

Wasn't Legless the archer dude in the hobbit movies? Maybe this guy's an archer as well.

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:07 AM


Legless llama looks lame. (sorry couldn't resist the alliteration!)

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:08 AM

looks like a lama slug or a lama worm..heheh

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:08 AM

@aloria: I don't know my llamas from my alpacas very well, so I might have made a mistake. If so, my bad.

I had never heard of uglyoverload. I visited and wish I hadn't. Sad and creepy. Down with breeders! Up with spay/neuter and pet adoption!!

As for this hairy hovercraft, I would like to put Barbies and Star Wars action figures on its back for some gallactic romping and mayhem.

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:20 AM

I'm waiting for the Dune lovers to stop staring at their posters of Sean Young, and to wander, pasty, white and undersexed, from of their caves for comment...

Love the Dune reference! This cameloid looks like what I imagine a sandworm might. tee hee.

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:28 AM

OMG THX, I *like* Ugly Overload! It appeals to the 'truth is stranger than fiction' type naturalist in me. Just click on Amphibians and look at the "Malayan Horned Frog who Doesn't Like You". :D

PS Spice Llama can see my soul.

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:28 AM

whoever does your writing is my hero.

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:31 AM

Oh, I get it! It's missing its ears! Right?

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:32 AM

Is this one of those woolly caterpillars I've heard about? Can you imagine the butterfly OMG!

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:38 AM

You are now entering the Lair of the Llama Worm.
You have been warned!

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:40 AM

Um, you must go to uglyoverload and look up Lester the Lion Kitty. He's Winston's understudy!

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:45 AM

I used to raise llamas and alpacas. Are you sure that is a llama? Where are the ears! Well, it does have a llama nose I guess.

It looks like the secret love child of one of those puppy dog boot scrubber statue thingys and a fur seal. :)

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:49 AM

Ah yes, this is the younger brother of the Baron - the white sheep of the family, Baron Llamadir Wormkonen. He has a thing for tube socks - very embarrassing for the family, and that's saying a lot considering the family.

P.S.: Dune rocks!

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:50 AM

Cute critter! And I LOVE the Dune reference! The spice must flow!

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:51 AM

OMIGOD! Dune reference! My crush continues, NTMTOM

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:54 AM

I didn't know that some slugs have fur. This is much cuter than the kind that eat our vegetables!

Seriously, though, this guy would probably eat more vegetables than our resident slugs.

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 09:58 AM

@(the original) Mel-
The only actor I can bring up by name at the moment from Dune is...Sting! lol

That Alpa-Llama whatsit would make a most disturbing welcome mat.

And Ugly Overload. *shudder*

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 10:01 AM

Also, this entry makes me need to go watch Weapon of Choice on Youtube now.

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 10:02 AM

Good lord...remind me never to go to UglyOverload ever again *scrubbing eyes*...
Now THIS guy I love! A big cute fuzzy cater-slug.
"I can has lettuce leaf?"

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 10:04 AM

*snicker* One of the commenters at ugly overload calls it a "monorail llama": http://tinyurl.com/5oyhjc

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 10:07 AM

Yeah, didn't Sting look GREAT in that movie?!?! I loved the red hair. Mmmm, remembering the steam bath scene.........drools.........

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 10:08 AM

I would bet a silk Pajama you've never seen a three "I" IIIlama.

Mad props for the Dune ref, Meg. This is why you're the Padishah Emperor of the Intertubes.

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 10:10 AM

mmm Arrakis.. and Sting did look divine! Must go home and rewatch the movie again.

Here a llama, there a llama ... now the Llama Llama song is stuck in my head

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 10:25 AM

Sting. Sooooooo delicious. Also in Quadrophenia.

(the original) Mel
 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 10:29 AM

ack!! I had never heard of Ugly Overload.. and now I wish I hadn't.. too much "cute or sad" action with it all being "sad".

We had llamas for a for a year or so, just loved them. We put out a kids pool for the ducks to swim in, the llamas took turns siting in it that summer. How funny to see them in a little pool maid for a toddler.

That is an incredibly strange picture!
I saw nothing terrible at uglyoverload, though I could do without seeing ANY spiders EVER. Nature certainly produces some interesting specimens, though they are not always 'cute'.
Really, where the heck are this things legs and ears?

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 10:35 AM

Not the first time the uglyoverload.com and cuteoverload.com nexus has happened, you know. Clear nosed skate and glass squid have both sealed the breach between the houses as well.

[Links, we need links!... - Ed.]

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 10:40 AM

Does Janet Weeks have picytures?

Thank you for telling me about the awful website. I'm actually one of those people when told NOT to go somewhere, doesn't go!

So, thanks, I get creeped out easily these days.

I like Dune. True am pale as I am a redhead and can't tan though I have tried very hard. I spend a lot of time outdoors, love it, but I have to bathe in sunscreen first. I don't have a poster of Sean Young, and I don't live in a cave, or my parent’s basement, or any other derogatory insult reserved for those who like sci-fi. I’m actually a scientist which might be my attraction to the genera.
The lama looks pretty weird without its legs, but cute in a fuzzy caterpillar kind of way. I also absolutely love the Dune reference.

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 10:59 AM

oh...oh...yes, I went to uglyoverload too and wish I had not...put me off breakfast...happy thoughts happy thoughts happy thoughts...
I DO love, however, the lolllamma hovertext - Ha!! Hon Glad, I tink you might have lost your bet;)

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 11:00 AM

I love llamas! When I volunteered at a zoo last year I had the opportunity to help care for a baby llama.

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 11:00 AM

Llama looks kind of freaky...maybe he's a sandworm outcast. He doesn't produce spice, he produces...something else..er...

Btw, LOVE Dune! It's my favorite book!

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 11:08 AM

I'm gonna ride my llama
From Peru to Texarkana

Sting was also yummy in "The Bride" though it's a crappy film. (No, I'm not gay, I just recognize when other men are yummy sometimes).

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 11:14 AM

Wonder if he's any relation to the 40 specially trained Ecuadorian Mountain Llamas that directed Monty Python and the Holy Grail?

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 11:16 AM

Talk about ugly overload, have you seen that HUGE spider they've stuck to a building in Liverpool? Apparently it's going to "wander". Can you imagine waking up with something like this on the building opposite you?


 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 11:21 AM

Cute Overload and Ugly overload have taken different sides on several specimens:

Pygmy Hogs


I think there was another llama post that was on cute overload then ugly overload.

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 11:32 AM

when the woolly worms get
as big as the lamas,
it'll be a rough winter--
get out your warm 'jamas.

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 11:33 AM

i mean llllamas.

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 11:34 AM

I don't have a poster of Sean but I wouldn't mind hooking up with Sting or a young Kyle MacLachlin. I'm moderately tanned and highly over sexed so here is my Dune reference.

He who controls the Llamaworms controls the spice...for He IS the Kwisatz Haderach!!!

 |  Sep 03, 2008 at 11:51 AM

This picture is driving me crazy!

Where are its ears and legs???

I mean, it's cute, but...
