Aussie Turtle Times

Taken in 1934, this photo shows my sea turtle cousins Barry and Larry, better known as the 'Thunder from Down Under', being nabbed and carted away by men in suits and hats. I'm hopeful they were brought to a zoo in Sydney and outlived the men in hats. Again, I'm hopeful, but I haven't heard from them yet. However, I do remember a band from Australia known as Men in Hats... could it be?


  1. I'm thinking "Men without Hats"...Safety Dance? These turtles sure don't look too safe zoo-bound or not.

  2. The photo suggests I 'dial' 101. No answer. Left a message, "WTF?"

  3. aahhh, Men Without Hats, no wonder! My cousins didn't have a chance with those fellas. There was no "Safety Dance" - I'm no fool.
