Fur Cryin’ Out Loud

What Kind Of Varmint Is That?

Photographs copyright: DAVID McMAHON


Can you identify this common furry object? It lives in every home. It has a long and distinguished history of service to mankind.


These views (above and below) encompass not one, but two of the same breed, albeit with a difference in colour.

I'm sorry if you thought I was trying to mislead you. Just blame it on a dry sense of humour.


And remember – never throw in the towel.

Visit TNChick's Photo Hunt. Today's theme: "Furry".

Recognized the towel straight away, David!
Knew it wasn't one of the furry beasts that plague me! LOL!
I feel like throwing in the trowel...... but that's another story!

Expat mum said...

You've obviously been influenced by my ironing post!

Jazz said...

I recognized it! Yay me.

Sarah Laurence said...

Ha! Rothko might appreciate your dry wit.

Just a Plane Ride Away said...

Haha! The first one threw me. Cow (my dog has spots that colour)? Kangaroo?!! ;-)

Elizabeth said...

Love those bath towels!
One of life's little pleasures - changing the colors and feeling them drink up all the moisture.
Thank you for enjoying "Seen in Soho".

We are flying to Dehli and going through Rajehstan.
I'm really excited.

Artist Unplugged said...

How can I not recognize those....I was hundreds and hundreds throughout the year!!!

RiverPoet said...

Oh, this made me all terry and choked up! Not a dry eye in the house...D

Cheffie-Mom said...

I knew it was a furry towel! LOL! Have a super weekend!

Woman in a Window said...

Ah, fluffy goodness. I caught this one straight off, too.

quilly said...

I love towels. I especially love towels warm from the drier. I love the way they smell and the way they feel. I recognized this creature right off as a prime specimen of healthy towel.

GreenJello said...

I love how you can take everyday objects and make them look so extraordinary.

You're so stinking funny. I was gearing up for a teddy bear until I got to the orange one...

my word verification is "witnes"...

cheshire wife said...

So which varmint dried your sense of humour?

the eternal worrier said...

Nice pictures. I love the every day stuff.

ArneA said...

First I thought it was another cropping photo. Then I found the colors so matching that I was thinking of art.
Then I saw the last one.

Meredith Teagarden said...

Too funny. I thought the first photo was an image of an incredibly bad faux fur.

CrazyCath said...

Couldn't recognise it until I saw the bales. Very clever. I thought they were maybe fleecy blankets. Love the puns - groaning all the way.

Incog & Nito said...

Got it - fun take on the theme. Enjoy your day.

Louise said...

UGH!!!

Randi said...

A really creative take on this week’s theme.
Happy weekend

Claudia said...

Reminds me of the riddle -- What gets wetter as it dries?

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Ach, David, one could depend on you for an unorthodox angle. Cool.

Leslie said...

I picked it was towels! Good one! :)

I didn't guess a towel - I thought it was one of those soft fuzzy throws.

If you have time stop by by photo hunt!

stan said...

i like the tongue-in-cheek slant u have over many of your photos here. so u've done the reverse bungie in spore. Where else have u been during your short stay here?

gen/entry said...

Oh at first I did not know what it is in the picture but i know now its a furry towl. Great one David. happy weekend.

June said...

Ha! Pretty clever stuff...thanks for the reprive from all the cutes and sweets :-)

Tarheel Rambler said...

I never would have though of a bath towel for the Furry PhotoHunt theme. Very creative.

If you enjoy photo memes, I invite you to come check out Sunday Scenery.

Lene said...

I knew it, hehe ;) Nice furry post, anyway :)

Mojo said...

I thought of towels straightaway but figured I must be wrong. But that's what you wanted me to think isn't it? You clever bugger!

Nice twist of the tail. Er, tale. Er... theme.

Clever title too.

Brita said...

Great take on the theme! Wow and haha!

Barbara H. said...

Dry sense of humor -- LOL! Good one.

Maureen Hayes said...

Happy photohunt!

Carin said...

First thought they were morningcloaks (or whatever you call them in English) then I realised they were towels!

BTW I wish we had some of your heat on this side of the globe! It's freezing cold here right now. Brrrrr

Patricia said...

Ah...very clever, David. I like the way YOU use a camera, too! Thanks so much for the visit and kind words. I hope you will visit Pollywog Creek again. Blessings!

Poutalicious said...

You got me! I thought it was moss and the insects were inside of it. That was fun. I would not do well photographing our towels since they are red and that color creates problems for me when photographing.

Holz said...

Love your sense of humor. It sounds like you give everyday a chance.

E said...

I'm a little behind- but damn that was funny.

I recognized it right away though-sorry.

Tranquility said...

Hehe...
