Poll Results

"Come on in, the water's fine."

"Come on in, the water's fine."

In response to the question “If you were another species would you choose to be a _______,” no one selected koala.  Perhaps that’s because you don’t want the annoyance of constantly having to remind others, “I’m not a bear, dammit, I’m a marsupial!”  You have to admit, though, that there’s a certain appeal to being cute and getting to sleep 16 to 18 hours a day.  “Pelican” got 6% of the vote.  As it happens, I have a lot of admiration for pelicans.  I’d love to be able to glide mere inches above the surface of the ocean the way they can.

Placing third, with 12%, was the leopard.  In second was Golden Retriever, scoring 24%.  The clear winner was dolphin with 59%, suggesting that even if you were a different animal, a substantial majority of you would want to keep the same characteristics you have as a human:  smart, athletic and playful.

  1. I think Pelicans got a raw deal. They fly, fish, swim, and surf. And they make a great diversion for dads who are trying to get their kids to appear candid in their mother’s photos. “Hey kids! Pelican!”

  2. Hm. I guess I did do that a time or two over the years, didn’t I?
