Lizards In The Underpants…

– – I, for one, do not pack skinks in my underwear.  I’ll even resist the temptation to mine that remark for other comic possibilities, ’cause this is a semi-classy place…

A German tourist, however, was caught by airport security attempting to leave New Zealand with a total of 20 skinks and 24 geckos of various species hidden in a small box concealed amidst his underwear.- – One gecko was even rolled into a sock!  The Geico Gecko would be appalled…

Now the geckos had an estimated black market value of $35, 850; the value of the skinks was unknown.  The tourist admitted to taking the reptiles from the wild, and trading and transporting them without a permit…

Skinks have no pronounced neck, and sport relatively small legs, with several genera having no legs at all!  They usually have long, tapering tails that can be shed and regenerated.- -That’s a neat trick if you can pull it off…ROTFL!    😉

    Lizards in his underwear? That dude really puts the “kink” in “skink.”

    Willy Whistle would be the biggest disapprover of that.

    For those of you ignoring us? Willy Whistle was the clown-like host of a syndicated kiddie show–in the New Haven, CT, area–during the Seventies. And, one day, a local herpetologist lost control of his pet boa constrictor down Willy’s baggy pants!

    This televisual bit is now cult-classic, as it was one of the first bloopers aired on Dick Clark’s very first blooper special for NBC.
