"Tina, you fat lard, come get some DINNER!... Tina, eat. Food. Eat the FOOD!"
"I could wrap you in some foam, or something billowy?"
"Oh yeah? Who's the only one here who knows secret Ninja moves from the government?"
"Kay, hold still right there. Now, just imagine you're weightless, in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by tiny little seahorses."
"LaFawnduh is *the* best thing that has ever happened to me. I'm 100% positive she's my soul mate. Don't worry Napoleon, I'm sure there's a babe out there for you too. Peace out."
"It took me like three hours to finish the shading on your upper lip. It's probably the best drawing I've ever done."
"I see you're drinking 1%. Is that 'cause you think you're fat? 'Cause you're not. You could be drinking whole if you wanted to."
"Well, I have all your equipment in my locker. You should probably come get it cause I can't fit my numchucks in there anymore."
"Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter."
"They're pretty good, except for one little problem. That little guy right there. He is nipple number five. A good dairy cow should have, like, four."
"Last week, Japanese scientists explaced... placed explosive detonators at the bottom of Lake Loch Ness to blow Nessie out of the water. Sir Cort Godfrey of the Nessie Alliance summoned the help of Scotland's local wizards to cast a protective spell over the lake and its local residents and all those who seek for the peaceful existence of our underwater ally."
"Well, things are getting pretty serious right now. I mean, we chat online for, like, two hours every day so I guess you could say things are gettin' pretty serious."
We spent a few months amassing a small collection of museum specimens from the different areas and offices around the building, for display on the set of our new program, Natural News from The Field Museumwhichlaunches September 14th! In a few weeks we’ll share a video talking about more of these objects in detail, but in the meantime:
I spy Triceratops, blue as can be- A -morpho in glass, Apatosaurus in green Some corals, a seahorse – tiny ear bones between And a raccoon painting, just barely seen.
I spy two ancient horses, a globe near some books- A fossilized pine cone, a hominid skull in a nook. I spy the trilobites: seven in all One is gigantic, six others are small.
I spy a human heart, modeled in plastic A Gorgosaurus posed to eat (it’s my favorite; fantastic) A typewriter with margins set to print labels And a handful of pamphlets for display on the table.
I spy adventure, excitement and knowledge A collection of wonder and more things to acknowledge. I wrote this for you in the hopes you’ll stay tuned For our new program which I’m so thrilled is launching SOON!
My aquarium is almost done! I just have to add one more layer of resin, let it dry and decorate the cap, then it’s done! :) I am so excited to see the finished product! Everyday I just want to hurry home from work so I can make more things. There needs to be more hours in a day! :)
ok but what about mermaids the size of their actual animal counterpart? like intead of scaling them down to human size, some of them were the size of a blue whale, or a tiny clown fish. or mermaids that live in the depths with giant squid tentacles. or even tiny seahorse mermaids that live in coral reefs and seaweed. just… mermaids

When I was little I wanted to be a scientist. Desperately. Discover the world. I would carry small science things in my pockets - magnifiers, bugs in plastic cases, a tiny dried seahorse. To make conversation with the other kids.
It went over poorly. But now I can nerd out as an artist and sit at my own lunch table.
The aquarium is finally finished! I added a gauze top that has silver butterflies on it and tied a bow around it. The bow took a while to tie since it was so small lol. It also kept slipping off, but it’s done now! yay!
You can see the progression of the aquarium here, starting from the bottom most picture, where I just laid down the stones and “algae”. After, I made some “corals” and starfish out of polymer clay. A seahorse was also made then glued to the rocks. After the glue dried in gluing down everything, I poured a little bit of resin to cover the rocks so there is a smooth level to glue the yellow fish (so that is isn’t on the same level of the seahorse). Once the glue for the yellow fish dried as well, I filled the rest of the bottle up with resin.
Materials: polymer clay, resin, glue, nail polish (for the eyes since it was sparkly nail polish), pebbles, sponge thing (for the algae)
