BUG MUSEUM QUOTES

Agrias Butterfly: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is an agrias butterfly. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? I must commend you for catching this particular type of butterfly! The agrias butterfly's atypical flight pattern has earned it the nickname "King of the Butterflies." It's such a swift flier that most enthusiasts who attempt to catch one rely on traps, eh wot? I daresay I'd lose a race with this flittering thing... Though I'd likely pass out from mortal revulsion first. Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Birdwing: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a birdwing. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? Hoo my, what a butterfly... I now see why it's touted as the world's largest butterfly, eh wot? I'd heard the wings of this particular butterfly can extend over a foot...but up close, these look bigger still! If one of these flew into me while I was out flying... I'd likely pass out in horror and plummet on the spot. Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Brown Cicada: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a brown cicada. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? Ah, hoo, the brown cicada. The call of this creature is said to sound like hot oil sputtering, eh wot? I'm rather not sure that hearing the sound of deep-frying on a hot summer night is a pleasant thing... Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Darner Dragonfly: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a darner dragonfly. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? At first glance, the darner dragonfly, like all dragonflies, appears to be quite a sleek bug, wot? But in its larval stage, this bug is a beastly little carnivore... I suppose if one were being eaten, one wouldn't care if whoever was doing the devouring looked sleek... Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Emperor Butterfly: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is an emperor. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? The emperor butterfly's beautiful blue markings make it a popular gift in certain parts of the world. Hoo, yes, wonderful gift... Such gift givers should have their heads examined, I should think... Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Flea: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a flea. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? Hoo now, have you ever had a chance to look at a flea up close and personal? They're utterfly noisome! Especially vulgar are their flattened bodies, which allow them to wriggle into all sorts of places. Oh, mercy, I may need to sit on the floor for a moment. All this talk of fleas has me rather woozy. Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Fruit Beetle: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a fruit beetle. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? Fruit beetles resemble short, squat versions of dynastid beetles. But aren't dynastid beetles a type of fruit beetle? I suppose it's all a popularity contest, in the end... Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Honeybee: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a honeybee. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? Honeybees are rather famous among bees for the impressive teamwork they exhibit, eh wot? I've even heard that they will swarm over enemies many times their size in an attempt to suffocate them. I must admit, it makes them seem rather like a bunch of brave warriors... Even so, when I imagine a massive swarm of bees, a different phrase comes to mind... "BLEEECCCH!" Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Jewel Beetle: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a jewel beetle. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? The Japanese name for the jewel beetle inspired their word for iridescence. Makes sense, I suppose... Since the beetles keep their color after death, it's said their bodied were worn as jewelry long ago. Do you supposed they left the legs and antennae on the bodies when they wore them? ...Blech. Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Lantern Fly: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a lantern fly. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? It's said that a diet of sap from the lychee tree makes the bodily fluids of the lantern fly sweet. It's also said the proper way to try them is to break off the tips of the horns and sip them like straws... It's ALSO said that anyone who does those things is officially googly-boogly out of his or her mind. Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Long Locust: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a long locust. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? Female long locusts are a great deal bigger than their male counterparts. Of course, gender aside, these locusts are large in general, hence the name. I must say, regular locusts are rather creepy enough. Being longer simply makes these ones even creepier. Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Pondskater: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a pondskater. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? Some say pond skaters smell like candy. Which means someone took the time to sniff one. ...Which means I just lost any appetite I might ever have for candy... Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Raja Brooke: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a Raja Brooke. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? ...I must say, I'm quite impressed with your ability to catch such an impressive butterfly... The Raja Brooke butterfly, I must tell you, is one of the larger tiger butterflies. Naturally, its antennae and proboscis also rank as some of the largest around. Be not proud, vile beast! Your cute red collar and fancy name do not fool Blathers! Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Robust Cicada: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a robust cicada. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? Fittingly enough, the robust cicada can issue a robust, loud chirp...and it does so quite often. I've heard this beastie's impertinent cry so often that I've grown rather good at imitating it. Listen! Chiiirp! Chiiirp! Chiiir... Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Snail: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a snail. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? Ah, if you didn't know, here's a fact for you... Removing a snail's shell doesn't make it a slug! If you did try to pull off a snail's shell--which I surely DO NOT condone-- its insides would spill out... I...just got a mental picture of that. I fear I shall never eat again! Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Tiger Butterfly: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a tiger butterfly. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? Aside from the South Pole, one can find tiger butterflies just about anywhere on earth. Imagine those monstrous bugs flapping about the whole globe... The very thought robs me of sleep! Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Walker Cicada: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a walker cicada. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? Apparently, walker cicadas cry out in an attempt to obscure the calls of other, similar cicadas. I should think that to the average fellow, it just sounds like the cicadas are merely singing together. In any case, I don't suggest looking for them. Their voices may fascinate, but their faces nauseate! Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

Walking Leaf: H-h-hoo... I daresay that is a walking lead. STOP! Do NOT free it! Leave the beast caged! Insects rather bother me. Touching them strikes me as quite revolting, wot? As you can see, walking leafs are extremely proficient at mimicking the appearance of leaves. What torments me is this: they also EAT leaves... Do they look at one another and think, "mmmmmmmm"? Bleh, enough, I say... Our thanks for the donation. We shall endeavor to keep the wretch safe and happy.

FISH MUSEUM QUOTES

Barbel Steed: Ah... A barbel steed? Yes, quite! While barbel steeds have many of the same features as carp, they're a bit less exciting, to my mind. For example, both have whiskers, wot? Yet the barbel steed's are just a hair shorter... It's rather like a fan doing an imitation of his or her favorite actor, or something to that effect. Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Barred Knifejaw: Ah... A barred knifejaw? Yes, quite! Hootie hoo, look at you! You've hauled in a star catch this time! Indeed, simply marvelous work! The barred knifejaw is a clever fish that, it's said, requires some rather fancy fishing to catch. Their monotone color scheme certainly paints them as smart, sensible fish in my eyes, eh wot? Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Black Bass: Ah... A black bass? Yes, quite! The black bass sports tremendous strength for its size, making it a popular catch in sportfishing. The bass is so popular that there are even fishermen who specialize exclusively in catching bass, eh wot? There are concerns about the effect of fishing on its habitat...but even so, this remains a favorite. Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Bluegill: Ah... A bluegill? Yes, quite! ...Ah, hoo, the bluefill, scourge of fishermen everywhere. Once introduced to an area, this fish will eat up many of the indigenous breeds, eh wot? But with a face like that, it's hard to believe our wee fishy friend here has any bad intentions... Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Butterflyfish: Ah... A butterflyfish? Yes, quite! This is a butterflyfish, but the truth is that there are over 100 varieties of this creature... They live in the oceans of the far south, and each variety has its own distinctive coloration. These fish are most often seen socializing in groups among stalks of coral. Rathr chatty, wot? Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Carp: Ah... A carp? Yes, quite! ...Hoo, tell me, have you ever had occasion to see the teeth of a carp? They're positioned far back in the mouth and can bite through seashells! I daresay you shouldn't go sticking your finger into a carp's mouth, wot? That is a mighty chomp! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Clownfish: Ah... A clownfish? Yes, quite! Clownfish go hand in hand with sea anemones. A single clownfish family will take up residence in each sea anemone. Occasinally the clownfish will share some of its food with its landlord... All in all, it's a wonderfully amiable little fish who really knows how to treat its neighbors! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Crawfish: Ah... A crawfish? Yes, quite! ...I don't do particularly well when around crawfish. I mean, really. Look at it. It's like a wretched insect! And those legs... Did you notice all those wiggly legs? All the better to revolt me. Hoo, and the vulgar belly, all segmented and biglike... Absolutely abhorrent! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Crucian Carp: Ah... A crucian carp? Yes, quite! The largest difference between a crucian carp and a carp is the former's lack of whiskers, wot? Compared to the regally whiskered carp, there's something almost common about the crucian variety! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Dorado: Ah... A dorado? Yes, quite! My hoo, I never dreamed someone in this town would hook a dorado! It's a fish that lives up to the image of El Dorado it conjures... I could gaze upon it all day! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Frog: Ah... A frog? Yes, quite! Fascinating... Were you aware frogs make slight adjustments to their croaks to communicate? Hoo, they say many things to each other! For example, "ouch," "flee," "I like you ♥," and so forth. With enough practice maybe I can learn to speak with our amphibian friends! ...Hoo-ribbit! Hoo-ribbit! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Giant Snakehead: Ah... A giant snakehead? Yes, quite! ...What a giant snakehead! These fish are notorious for their tremendous appetites, eh wot? Much like a snake, once one of these grabs its prey, naught can convinc it to let go... I should think a few well-places owl kicks might convince it, should one ever take a liking to me! In any case, this fish doesn't hunt all year 'round. It hates the cold and hibernates through winter. I've come up with a smashing nickname for it... "The Scourge of Summer!" Marvelous, eh wot? Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Goldfish: Ah... A goldfish? Yes, quite! Hoo now... Do you know how large goldfish can get? Well, they can grow up to... one foot long! The growth of a goldfish in a tank is inhibited by tank size, so you rarely see them that big, I'd imagine. Even so, our tanks here at the museum are spacious... so expect our new goldfish to make a BIG splash! ...Hoo now? Not at all funny, you say? Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Guppy: Ah... A guppy? Yes, quite! Male guppies are known for their colorful, bright scale patterns... But look closer, and you'll see males share a design with their female peers... Indeed, a matching couple! It seems like the pairs are a little shy about their romance and tend to hide it. Simply adorable! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Horse Mackerel: Ah... A horse mackerel? Yes, quite! Horse mackerel are not at all related to horses... Rather obvious, I should think... It's quite a strange name, given how many fish are related to this one, like yellowtail and amberjack. Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Neon Tetra: Ah... A neon tetra? Yes, quite! That metallic blue body! Hoo, that crimson tail! That pristine white belly! ...Now, THIS is what I call a tropical fish! No wonder this fish has the word "neon" in its name, eh wot? One of these should liven up the museum nicely! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Ocean Sunfish: Ah... An ocean sunfish? Yes, quite! ...The ocean sunfish, it turns out, is related to the blowfish! Shocking, no? Absolutely mind-boggly! The resemblance is quite strong in its little mouth and round body... Seems rather blowfishy to me! ...There's something almost therapeutic about watching its slow, dull movements and vacant expression. Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Octopus: Ah... An octopus? Yes, quite! Ah, yes, hoo, the octopus. Did you know the blood of the octopus is actually colored blue? With its eight legs and predilection for spewing ink...you'd think people would be repulsed by it. And yet, perhaps due to its fetching shape, the octopus remains one of the most loved sea creatures! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Olive Flounder: Ah... An olive flounder? Yes, quite! Oliver flounder are masters of self-transformation... who, I'm told, can grow to almost 40 inches long. That's like some sort of underwater bath mat! It's a good thing you caught this one while it's still young! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Pale Chub: Ah... A pale chub? Yes, quite! The pale chub is a freshwater fish. During its spawning season, it turns a vivid blue, wot wot? Rather fasciating how a fish normally so plain can put forth such an effort when love is on the line... Perhaps I might stand to adopt that fish philosophy myself, and quite soon! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Piranha: Ah... A piranha? Yes, quite! ...Most people see piranhas as savage fish that enjoy tearing prey apart with their teeth... However, ther're actually quite timid, wot wot? They're often treated like bad guys due to their scary faces. I hope we haven't hurt their feelings... Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Popeyed Goldfish: Ah... A popeyed goldfish? Yes, quite! Popeyed goldfish look like any other ordinary goldfish whilst still juveniles. As they begin to mature their eyes bulge outward and gradually assume that distinctive appearance. Imagine how appalled you'd be if you brought one home thinking you'd bought a normal goldfish... Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Puffer Fish: Ah... A puffer fish? Yes, quite! If you actually bother to count them, the average puffer fish is said to have around 400 spines on it. Oh, and in case you didn't know, while the puffer fish may look like a blownfish, it is NOT poisonous. So, on the whole, this fish is much less fearsome than it looks... Or perhaps it just believes in fair play, wot? Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Red Snapper: Ah... A red snapper? Yes, quite! Hoo, magnificent! Fine job, snapping up a red snapper! ...Hoo now? You didn't find that uproariously funny? In any case, right near the gills of this fish is a bone that actually looks just like the fish itself... Some cultures believe keeping one of these one you brings good luck. Good luck is a snap! Hoo! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Sea Bass: Ah... A sea bass? Yes, quite! ...Ah, hoo, the sea bass. In some parts of the world these fish have a different name as juveniles. They change names once they mature, eh wot? What's more, these names can differ from region to region... It's almost as if the sea bass is some sort of secret agent, eh wot? Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Sea Horse: Ah... A sea horse? Yes, quite! This creature is covered in hard scales that suggest a relation to crabs or shrimp, but it's a proper fish. That said, it's a dreadful swimmer and can't usually move against powerful currents, eh wot? In such environments, the sea horse will cling to kelp and stay there until the waters calm a bit... Seeing those little fellows holding on for dear life makes me want to cheer them on! Cling, sea horse! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Squid: Ah... A squid? Yes, quite! ...The creature we know as the squid comes in a variety of shapes...and indeed, sizes! Some reports tell of a squid measuring in excess of 120 inches in length! At that size, it's no wonder you see them in sci-fi cinema. They DO seem a bit like aliens, eh wot? Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Sweetfish: Ah... A sweetfish? Yes, quite! You can always tell where a sweetfish has been by the trail of bite marks it leaves behind, eh wot? The fish will scrape away at rocks that have food stuck to them, leaving jagged teeth marks. ...Quite wild behavior for such a refined-looking little fish, I should say! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

Zebra Turkeyfish: Ah... A zebra turkeyfish? Yes, quite! As its flashy coloration suggests, the zebra turkeyfish is poisonous. In other words, it's trying to tell you, "Touch me and you're sure to be right sorry, my fine friend!" Its slow, deliberate swimming style also suggests that this is one fish not to mess with! Hoo... But all that aside... I offer you our gratitude. Rest assured your aquatic friend will be most happy!

FISH-OFF QUOTES

FOSSIL MUSEUM QUOTES

Archaeopteryx: What you have here is an archaeopteryx! Hoo! Indeed, WOO hoo! And with that it goes to our fine collection! Hoo, what a wondrous find! Such perfect condition! Archaeopteryx's feathers... led many people to believe it was the progenitor of the birds, eh wot? Sadly, further evidence indicates it's likely not a direct relation... The current thinking is that we had other ancestors. Different grand-Blathers for me, wot wot! To be honest, there are almost as many theories as fossils for this beastie. It's quite a riddle! HOO! I...beg your pardon! I was so enthralled, I... I spouted hot air like a boiling teapot, eh wot?

Dinosaur Track: Hmmmmm... Fascinating... I have you now, fossil... AHA! What you have here is a dinosaur track! Hoo! Indeed, WOO hoo! And with that, away it goes to our fine collection! Hoo, simply mind-boggling! This fossils is a perfect specimen! Judging by the shape, I'd say this is a dinosaur track from a mighty T. rex! Ah... But don't dare scoff as if this is just any old footprint! More so than even bones, dinoaur tracks provide us with a plethora of interesting information... Hoo, yes, for example, they tell about the creature's skin and locomotion speed, wot! HOO! I...beg your pardon! I was so enthralled, I... I spouted hot air like a boiling teapot, eh wot?
