These pictures are EDUCATIONAL.
Well, except for the black bar across her eyes. I got that idea from the Glamour Fashion Do's or Don'ts page. This way, her anonimity is protected.
See? Here is a picture of a Glamour Fashion Don't:
|She looks familiar but I don't know who she is. Cuz of the black bar.|
This way, if any of you ever meet Mimi, there won't be any of those awkward I totally saw your hamster ladybits on the internet and WOW is this uncomfortable or what? silences.
So anyway, it turns out that this is what he thought was a scar:
|Seriously, you guys? Seriously.|
|Tonight I'm going to eat your face while you sleep.|
Me: *sigh*.....Z, that's her butt, where she poops out of.
Z: *eyes widened in disbelief/anger at being tricked* No it's NOT! That's NOT where her poop comes out of! That's where she pees!!!
We argued this fine point for a minute or more, while Mimi patiently allowed herself to be used for educational purposes. She really is a good hamster.
Me: Fine! So where do YOU think she poops out of?
Z: *points* THERE!
|Ok. There is some serious Tomf*ckery going on here.|
That's right. He was pointing at her tail.
Z: What does wtf mean?
Me: Nevermind. Just know that what you are describing is physically impossible. Hamsters DO NOT poop out of their tails!
Z: Fine! So why do YOU think she has a tail?
Me: Her tail is so she can balance! For example, I have terrible balance. I'm always tripping or falling down, but if I had a tail that wouldn't happen.
*Update - today I asked Z where Mimi pooped out of and he looked at me all crazy and shit. Finally he said, oh yeah! She poops out of her butt.
Me: *???!!!??* But I thought you said she poops out of her tail. What changed your mind?
Z: Well, DUH. Because you said so.
