    I may turn this into a song. Ahem...

    Pinnipeds, pinnipeds, pinnipeds....

    Pinnipeds are so cute & plumpy
    But stand back, you don't wanna make them jumpy
    They're sociable, peppy, funny and amiable
    They're the original party animals

    Pinnipeds, pinnipeds, pinnipeds...

    They move through water like dykes to your daughter
    They're barrel-shaped, heart shaped and sometimes
    Even elephantine
    And when you think you don't have a girlfriend
    One of them may be your valentine

    Pinnipeds, pinnipeds, pinnipeds...

    Mr. Great White Shark may make them frown
    But he never brings them down

    Pinnipeds, pinnipeds, pinnipeds...

    Pinnipeds include seals and walruses
    They eat crabs, oysters, clams and aminids
    They love buffets, dances and socials
    They're the original fraternal sororities

    Mr. Killer Whale may make them frown
    But he never brings them down

    Pinnipeds, pinnipeds, pinnipeds...

    Pinnipeds love to gather 'round
    And catch up on old friends always hangin 'round
    So how's Sam these days, is he a bother?
    Oh, he just ran off with Lucy the otter

    Pinnipeds, pinnipeds, pinnipeds...

    Mr. Polar Bear may make them frown
    'Cause he reminds them that the ice floes are melting

    Pinnipeds, pinnipeds, pinnipeds...

    Pinnipeds are right near you
    You can find them at your local zoo
    They still party and swing from chandeliers
    If you're lucky, one might swim up to you
    And call you "dear".

    Pinnipeds, pinnipeds, pinnipeds...

    Mr. Eskimo may make them frown
    'Cause he's a godamm sonofabitch.

    You are so right, pinnipeds are cuties! I had never heard of pinnipeds before until I saw this and Googled it :D

    I am an animal-lover, so what do I know... :hysterical:

    I also concluded from this poem that polar bears eat pinnipeds? I did not know that either!

    Anyways, this was enjoyable to read, and I liked your pacing! :hugtackles:

    Thanks, Mr. Alex. I always thought the word "pinnipeds" was funny, so that's why I wrote it!

    :rolleyes:

    That's what I was thinking, too! I LOLed when I read it.. ;) Sounds like an extra-bagooglezillion-times cool animal (family) name! Before I looked up its meaning, I thought it might be some animated character from a film I haven't watched.

    Also, it reminds me of the name Pippi Longstockings (a character in a book I read as a kid). :D
