Default Llama drama

Richard, did you lose your head piece?

Should we take up a collection to bail you out?

All we need now is a hungry hippo on main street.

Chinese Man Tries To Sell Pet Alpaca After Losing Big On Stocks
Quote:
Despite not finding a seller, Fang may have succeeded in getting an entirely different message out. His choice of an alpaca for the sale hints strongly at a double-entendre: in Chinese the animal is sometimes called a “grass-mud-horse” -- a phrase that is a pun on a vulgar curse on someone’s mother. Some Chinese microbloggers said Fang’s message was crystal clear: a profanity to stock market and its manipulators. 
Quote:
But many online commenters took the llama stunt more seriously, laying out business plans for Fang to sell the chance to take selfies with a llama instead of selling the animal itself. That may be more in line with Fang’s professed attachment to the animal, which he said he purchased from New Zealand two years ago.

“I hope that I can sell him temporarily to help get through this time,” Fang reportedly told those at the scene. “When things turn around I’m willing to pay double the price to get it back.”

That's odd. I'll make the OP link unclickable for now. I've left that link clickable in science_man_88's post because it is adjacent to his cautionary remark.

Pony dressed as unicorn leads Calif. authorities on wild chase
Quote:
The California Highway Patrol tried for almost four hours to catch Juliet on the ground, as a helicopter helped track the horse from the air, Boos said.

Juliet eluded all efforts at capture, until Boos' friend rode up on a horse.

“When Juliet saw [the woman's] horse, Shady, she came running,” Boos said.

To her owner's relief, Juliet followed the horse into a nearby pen.

"I was standing with highway patrol when the call came over the radio, and they said 'the unicorn is in custody,'" Boos said.
