Where is the strangest place you ever...

Postby Mary Hatch Bailey » Sat, 25 Feb 2006 4:37 pm

Ya. I know why you clicked here. I know what you thought I was going to ask. But here's my real question:

Where is the strangest place you ever found a dead gecko?

I cleaned out a steamy, bloated, pale grey puddle of a carcass out of my dishwasher this morning. It was awful :cry:

My old Microwave crapped out one day. couldn't find the problem so took it apart and low & behold, there was a crispy well done critter stretched out across the internal fuse so when the unit was turned on he got himself electrocuted.

I also had a charcoal briquette of a gecko in my toaster. No telling how many rounds of toast he accompanied.

My wife was 7 months pregnant and almost had a miscarriage when a gecko kissed her stomach - she litterally levetated.

What is it with geckos that totally freak out women? Mrs 'Cluse has this phobia of a gecko crawling into her mouth while she is alseep.

Assure the lady it will go down well with a bottle of cabernet sauvignon, I hear 2004 was good vintage. :P :P :D :D

Ugh, I've hated geckos as long as forever, dunno why but Gawd they're those ultimate creepy crawlies for me. Hate them! Alive or dead, they're gross!
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

I'm not the least bit scared of the live ones. We live with lots of various critters here in this old wreck of a house. But dead ones in your freezer? Ick.

We are always finding dead ones around, the cats think that gecko hunting is the best sport around (although the younger falls for the tail drop every time). I can do without the carcasses being brought to my bed as trophies though...

I quite like the little beasts, but when one scuttles through the pantry cupboard as I reach to get something, or drops down when I open the front door then I cannot help but let out a yelp of surprise :o

Gimme geckos anyday over eight legged beasties or cockroaches...ergh....now they are nightmare material! 8-[

Gekkos never die. They just stop quacking.
