Polaris - Hey Sandy (The Adventures of Pete and Pete Theme)


"…Och under stjärnan framkallas alltmer
det andra, dolda landskapet som lever
konturers liv på nattens röntgenplåt.
En skugga drar sin kälke mellan husen.

De väntar.”

(Citatet från “Epilog” av Tomas Tranströmer, ur 17 dikter, 1954)


The Sarcastic Fringehead - this is an actual fish name I saw at Birch Aquarium at Scripps as part of the Great Life Force Haul of 2014.  This is in La Jolla, CA which is near San Diego.  I would say it’s one of the two most entertaining names that requires no changes to make fun of it.

I remember an old road trip to - I think - San Diego Zoo where my friends and I went during college to see stuff.  One of the things we saw was the King Skink, which quickly turned into the Kinky Skank, which itself was really little more than our undying optimism mixed with what we each hoped to find during that vacation.
