Crooning Chameleon Curmudgeons

[Piano playing in the background]

Big green lizard:
"Boy, the way Glen Miller played... Songs that made the hit parade. Guys like us, we had it made.

Together: "Those were the days."

Little grey lizard: And you know who you were theeeeeen!"

Big green lizard: "girls were girls and men were men."

Together: "Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover agaaaain"

Big green lizard: "Didn't need no welfare state. Everybody pulled his weight. Gee, our old LaSalle ran great."

Together: "Those weerrre the daaaaaaaaaaaaaaays."


Nice point out, Marisa B., and Sydney Morning Herald

Hee hee! The big green guy is DEFINITELY singin' I love how a creature usually seen as unattractive can be transformed to "cute" by a witty caption. Well done, Meg! (Special mention to Archie & Edith Bunker) ;-)

Oh golly! I hope he doesn't sneeze and fling the little guy off into the distance!

omg, cute little green nubblies and a study in greys! Can anybody explain this fascinating behaviour? Is the small 'meleon the child of big greenie?

 |  Jan 02, 2007 at 08:55 AM

Heyyy I didn't *know* I could click my 'back arrow' so fast!
Aaahhhhh! I'm gone, as in, gone.

Green Guy reminds me of George Burns telling a joke, and that's Gracie on top. George Burns & Gracie Allen CHRISTMAS #2 (you Tube)

Your commentary is hilarious! It made my first day back at work after the New Year a little less painful. The picture is great, too.

Too funny...all the show's catch phrases are flooding back. "Stifle yourself"..."Dingbat"...
"Meathead"...*sigh* now I'm gonna have to check the TVLand listings.

Awesome captioning.

How can something so crusty-looking look so cute?

Oh yeah, Rule #7.

 |  Jan 02, 2007 at 10:33 AM

Kudos, Meg, for getting all the lyrics right! What a marvelous shot that is--lizard feet like that fascinate me.

Uhm. Cute, yes.

But why do I think that sticky ol'tongue is about to fly out and NAB that youngster?

I don't think chameleons are noted for their childcare...

 |  Jan 02, 2007 at 06:26 PM

I think the funniest thing is the the singing! You're hillarious! LOL

 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 12:20 AM

 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 12:23 PM

Oh, this made my day - the pic and the caption!

I was in a horrible mood but it put the biggest smile on my face.

I especially like the part where bebe chameleon sings like Edith Bunker. Hee.

 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 07:25 PM

Get in my belly!
 |  Jan 04, 2007 at 09:44 PM

eeeeeeee chameleon-face! :D Chams are so awesome. I love to see them doing their leaf-walking dance as they decide where they're going to put their mitten-feet. :)
