The common Bushwoolie of the genus Bushwooligus Exampanitus evolved to thrive in a heavily forested environment. Small in stature, the Bushwoolie has a dark green/blue spiky coat that enables it to blend in, thereby avoiding detection by predators. An herbivore, it's diet consists mainly of the woody stems of low hanging deciduous bushes. Because the god that created it was a wee bit drunk at the time, he neglected to provide the Bushwoolie the enzymes necessary to digest the tough wood of the branches.
The species would have died out entirely had it not been for the curious nature possessed by one little Bushwoolie. Tired of living with indigestion the little guy began chewing on the base of a highly toxic mushroom. Within minutes his tummy ache ceased and he began to experience a sense of well-being that transported him into another realm. Soon all the Bushwoolies began eating toxic mushrooms and enjoyed feeling groovy.
The fearsome looking mouth of the Bushwoolie, which had been designed as nothing more than a display to ward off predators, was now deadly.
Well folks it's Friday and time to shake the dust of the week off your boots. Whatever you decide to do this weekend, do it with a light heart and a smile on your face. I know I will.
