Sweet Nothings

Doughnuts Could Be Creature Comforts

Whether the mystery critter roaming northern Florida is an orangutan, a "baby Bigfoot" or something else, wildlife officials think it might have a bit of Homer Simpson in it. After a bear hunter said an animal that could be an orangutan stole jelly doughnuts from him, a wildlife investigator has tried to use sweet treats to lure the creature into the open in Baker County. There have been several sightings of what witnesses have described as a "big orange ball of fur," though officials have yet to confirm it's an orangutan. Fish and wildlife investigator Ken Holmes laid doughnuts at the base of a tree in hopes of catching the animal, but it eluded him.

FOOTNOTE: Catch a Bigfoot? That's some feat.

I can remember an episode of The Simpsons, where Homer and Bart were "in the buff, in the wild!" Yeah, go ahead---admit it, YOU know the one! And danged if I don't think he ended up with donuts at the end...!

A groan for your last line.
Let's hope they don't hurt the animal (if it is an orang, let's hope it doesn't hurt them).

I love your footnote! I didn't know that orangutans liked donuts! I love to learn something new and I'm sure that this tidbit will come in handy in many, many situations.

My advice is to leave a Jelly Babies encrusted, apple, apricot, fresh cream and jam-based 8-inch sponge - with a mountain of sqirty cream oozed on top!

If the thought of one can get me out of bed in the morning, the scent of one will draw old rusty-critter forward! I promise ya!
