“The song features a man singing he wants to be "a polar bear in the cold polar", because by being one he "wouldn't have to cry any longer and everything would be fine." The instrumental arrangement also evokes an Arctic atmosphere.”

Polar bear 🐻‍❄️ what do you hear?
The cracking of all the ice in the Northern hemisphere.
Polar bear 🐻‍❄️ what do you see?
A raft of ice, a thousand miles of ocean and little old me
Polar bear 🐻‍❄️ what do you smell?
Walrus poo, salt water and the icy gates of hell
Polar bear 🐻‍❄️ what do you read?
The novels of Toni Morrison and the Aeneid
Polar bear 🐻‍❄️ where are you headed?
To the bottom of the ocean to see an octopus and get wedded
Polar bear 🐻‍❄️ what's your story?
It's a tale full of icy woe and winter glory
Polar bear 🐻‍❄️ where do you see yourself five years from now?
In the South of France eating cheese with a 🤡
Polar bear 🐻‍❄️ I like your style!
That's great because I'm going to float away for a very long while

Wikipedia > The Residents: While Eskimo is officially maintained to be a true historical document of life in the Arctic, the stories are deliberately absurd fictions only loosely based in actual Inuit culture, and the chanting is a combination of gibberish and commercial slogans. The album satirizes ignorance toward and mistreatment of the indigenous peoples of the Americas

eating cheese in the south of france sounds very pleasant. the clown part i'm not sure about but why not

on being fixed: I had an ovary out 4 years ago, and my surgeon said, ‘You don’t want kids anyway, so lets take the other one out too.’ But ovarian follicles act as auxiliary endocrine glands.

don’t even TRY to “keep the dogs and cats separate”, you gotta step aside and let them work it all out for themselves

Avatar 8:39am kitty.omalley:

It is possible to introduce cats and dogs. The trick is giving cats a high perch to take a "time out" and doing the whole thing gradually with supervision. But the family has to be willing to commit to doing it. Thanks all of you who like Betty!!! Paws crossed for her!

The little stray I'm feeding & trying to capture (eventually) looks like Betty Boop with a little tiny white patch on her chest and gold eyes
Avatar 8:48am kitty.omalley:

@dday good luck getting the stray! it's tough to rescue in the bitter cold.
  8:48am Listener Robert:

I got an animal problem here with a type of animal: mice! After 2 years they started using the lazy susan in the cabinet as a toilet again, and are no longer repelled by the Mouse Magic mint sachet I put two fresh ones of. It's like, oh, nice clean toilet, remind us to tip the attendant.

Listener Robert. I have a mice problem too. I am trying bags filled with balsam fir pellets. It appears to work.

Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:51am dday:

@Kitty.omalley. Any tips to get the stray to use the cat shelter I built? It's fully insulated with a cat door installed on a rubbermaid storage container. I've put some food & treats in there, left the door full open & closed (swinging door) but it has no interest in entering. In the meantime I'm leaving the two sheds doors I have on the property ajar just in case she decides to enter.
  8:52am Listener Robert:

Thanks, TDK60. I'd thought about putting down soe of my friend's used cat litter, but figured that cure would be worse than the disease. And I do mean disease, I suspect I got a gastroenteritis a week ago from mouse duties.

Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:56am dday:

@Robert the real trick is to seal up wherever they are getting in. That's tough as they need very little space to do that. I had a big problem years ago and I methodically plugged every opening under the house (crawl space) I could find. I haven't had any mice in my home since about 2009 and I live in the woods in PA. Persistence. I used foam spray insulation for sealing around pipes & electrical conduits & pink foam insulation sheets (not batting, they use that to nest). Good luck.

Thank you for a great show.
  8:57am Listener Robert:

Thanks again, TDK. My only successes back in the Bronx had been with glue traps, plus the assistance of stuffed Wolfie in channeling the smarter ones onto the glue. I did the execution in the alley with a mallet, "blindfolding" the mice with a paper towel.

Good day, Jim & Amanda.

thanks for the takos and everything else!
Avatar 8:58am kitty.omalley:

@dday the kitty may have another place to go! Or maybe your shelter needs heavier insulation? You can reach me at work at nycfci.happyfox.com/new
  8:58am morphe':

Thanks J&A !!!!
  8:58am Listener Robert:

Yes, of course sealing off the entrances are the real key. Basically there's one wall in here that's a mouse shelter and highway inside.
  8:58am Morgan:

thank you amanda and jim and kathleen (great instructions!) and everyone! I have to catch the archive

Thanks Amanda and Jim! I love this week's drawings, especially the cat and elephant.
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:59am dday:

I thought that. it's -10 here and she must have somewhere to keep her out of the weather. The shelter is insulated with styrofoam & a piece of a space blanket. Feels pretty warm in there to my hand :)

Listener Robert. It's pretty pungent, have to air out kitchen after a night of bags in there.
  9:10am Listener Robert:

Thanks again, TDK60, but I bet it's not as pungent as cat urine and feces.
