Centrefold - J Geils Band

I've made an executive Blog decision.
As of today, and every Sunday hereafter the topic will be Boobs.
Boobs is a good word.
Boob has many meanings.
So I would encourage you all to settle down, snuggle up, pour a glass of your favourite "tipple" and join me as I begin an adventure into Sunday Booby Blog. "SBB"

The Booby

A type of seabird, is part of the family Sulidae and the genus Sula. It is closely related to the gannets (Morus), which were often included in Sula in former times.

Boobies are large birds, with long pointed wings and long bills. They hunt fish, by diving from a height into the sea and pursuing their prey underwater. Facial air sacs, under their skin, cushion the impact with the water. Boobies are colonial breeders on islands and coasts. They normally lay one or more chalky-blue eggs, on the ground or sometimes in a tree nest.

Their name is possibly based on the Spanish slang term bobo, meaning "dunce", as these tame birds had a habit of landing on-board sailing ships, where they were easily captured and eaten. Owing to this, Boobies are often mentioned as having been caught and eaten by shipwrecked sailors, notably Captain Bligh of the Bounty and his loyalists, during their famous voyage after being set adrift by Fletcher Christian and his mutineers.

Drat...I didn't read this until Monday, and so now I have to wait until next Sunday for my next opportunity to wax eloquent on boobs. Which is not the same as waxing boobs, which are much nicer with the original nice matte finish. I think I'll stop now, before I get into more trouble.

fiona said...

Bilbo - good to have you back dear :)
Wax on Wax off...hmmmmm
