The Narwhal Curse

I would love to have one of these Massive Squishable Narwhals, but then I realized that I’d never be able to look at it without the Narwhal song popping into my head.

It’d be like having a Massive Decorative Bag of Crack hanging on my wall.

You’re not playing that video, are you? Sorry.

    They want to touch my balls?

    It’s been a miss thus far, I think I’ll keep it that way, ‘K.

    I don’t know, at least they aren’t dugongs.

    Thanks for that, PZ, ’cause narwhals are awesome (as long as they’re not touching your balls).

  5. 5

    Did you notice the large octopus bean bag?

  6. 6

    Argh, I hate the narwhal song. Give me breadfish any day.

  7. 7

    Until pentatomid links us to the breadfish song, I’ll cheerfully hum this one. I LIKE the narwhal song (and the badger song, for that matter).

    Damnit. Now I have that song cursing through my synapses.

    I wonder if YMCA is an antidote?

    They don’t have a squishable cat but they do have a squishable Cthulhu: http://www.squishable.com/pc/squish_cthulhu_15/Big_Animals/Squishable+Cthulhu

    Are you behind this, PZ?

    It isn’t.

    Now I have Narwhals staying at the YMCA in my brain.

    If you actually want anyone’s head to explode, send them this link of the narwhal song on loop for 10 hours.

    Well, damn. There goes $17.00. A micro narwhal and a micro manatee are headed to me. (there’s a coupon code from free shipping on two microsquishy things)

    Stop me before I spend again!

    I just dropped acid. Did anyone else just see dancing unicorn whales?

    And from the same creators…Badger Mushroom Snake:

    We don’t need to see the video, all we need see is the word narwhal.

    Damn Pavlov!

    It is just me, or does the Breadfish song kinda sound like something from David Byrne’s 1997 album Feelings?

    Look at my horse. LOOK AT EET!

    They don’t have a squishable cat

    Yes they do, they have a squishable kitten.

    After standing beside a guy listening to “I’m a Barbie girl” – loud, on repeat, in a crowded tram so I couldn’t move… I caught the damned song and this was a welcome cure.

    Here is my contender… Narhwal though is quite devious. :P

  23. 23

    well.. if the youtube embed would work

    Believe it or not, I’d never seen that video before. It rocks. Thanks, PZ!!

    Just one question: Do they have narwhals in Kenya?

  25. 25

    You do realise you’re gonna get sent half a dozen of those things now, right?

    I don’t know, at least they aren’t dugongs.

    Don’t knock the dugongs. I have a whole bouquet of the things, myself.

    Gah! The embedding!

  29. 29

    And the jazz remix…..


  30. 30

    Ha! Found a successful antidote. Though the cure might be worse than the disease.

  31. 31

    Ahhhh. At least I don’t have “Broken Hearts are for Assholes” stuck in my head anymore…

  32. 32

    Until this moment in time… well, at least till yesterday, I was blissfully unaware of these catchy, cute, and (and dare I say) repetitive little videos.

    Now I have to try to get to sleep at night with cartoon caricatures of narwhals, badgers, and yes, the latest travesty, lions and tigers, cutting great swathes of pain through my delicate psyche. Many thanks for that, fellow Pharyngulites… and a great big fuck you to the collective you, and the bus you rode in on :-) … :-|

    Why the youtube linkage when you can just get to the originals at http://www.weebls-stuff.com/ (where you’ll get not just 10 hour versions but infinite loops…)

  34. 34

    I just imagined Narwhals sung to the tune of Abba’s “Super Trouper”. I am stuck with an infinite loop of that.
    Maybe I should try Marilyn Manson.

    “Narwhals are made of this
    who am I to disagree
    They travel the world and the seven seas
    Every narwhal is looking for something”
