Human Government Is Stupid!


This is the sort of thing that the humans' government gets involved in.

Not only did they decide to change the looks of Woodsy Owl, but also they have explicit instructions on how to get rid of the old Woodsy (see below). I think that the new Woodsy looks stupid. Very stupid!

Destroying Old Woodsy Owl Costumes
- Guidelines

1. Incinerate the complete costume with the oversight of an official USDA Forest Service law enforcement officer*.

2. The entire Woodsy Owl costume including each of the separate pieces is to be destroyed beyond recognition.

* If you do not have access to an official USDA Forest Service law enforcement representative, arrangements will be made for dealing with your costume by contacting the USDA-FS Washington Office at:

Woodsy Owl
C/o National Symbols Program
P. O. Box 96090
Washington, D. C. 20090-6090

This can't be serious! Not only do I agree with you about the new "look"...... but uh... wouldn't BURNING the old costume cause POLLUTION!?!?
An old friend of Mom's answered Woodsy Owl's fan mail as a summer job one year. Cool, huh?

I hadn't thought of the pollution angle!

That was a cool job your mom's friend had. My Human had a friend a long time ago who had the nickname of Woodsy 'cause his first (or middle--my Human can't remember) name was Forest.

That Woodsy Owl must be a VIP! I suggest they just toss those costumes out at Goodwill, and let someone have some fun with them.

p.S. - thanks for visiting our blog the other day! We don't get much company.

C-S: I have you on a thing that lets me know when you've posted something new so that I don't miss anything!

The human woman just wrote her check to the IRS. Not only was she cursing and mumbling while she did that, but now she's screaming and cursing something about MY TAX DOLLARS AT WORK FOR BURNING A F'ING WOODSY THE OWL COSTUME.

I have no idea what that means, but hopefully that means I'll get more buffalo meat as a snack.


H.A. Turbofire, Sibertarian said...

I keep hearing about "Turbo Tax" but so far no one's sent me anything!

Remind your human woman that I'm running for president and I won't be spending any money on stupid things like burning costumes!

Happys Easter Tubeys,

I've heard of flag burnin', but owl burnin'? Oh, wait. The spotted owl... Probably a few burned then.

Stupid taxes. My humans pay the state every one twos one twos (three) months and then they send it back the next year. Stupid. If the state doesn't want it, why ask for it in the first place? Stupid.

The Mom says that she remembers Woodsy the Owl from a long, long time ago, and is surprised that there's still something left to burn. She thought he was long gone!
I won't be burning my bacon, perhaps we could wrap the owl in bacon?
Sounds tasty to me!
