X Is For…

The alphabet isn’t all fun and games, and whatever sadistic ancient asshole put it together definitely added a few unnecessary letters that no civilized person would ever use.  We’re about to learn that hard lesson in this week’s edition of my Photography A to Z challenge.  Since this is the 24th installment, I am legally obligated to devote a post entirely to pictures featuring words that begin with the letter X.  Nothing starts with X.  I don’t even think they bother to make anything monogrammed with the damned letter X!  While you chuckle away at my plight, I’m going to bore you to death with the two rules of the challenge yet again…

  • Only photos I took myself will be used.
  • All photos used will have been taken without any thought given to this challenge.

Alright, I can do this!  Let’s totally X this post off our list…

How about an X-RAY of a squirrel’s tail?  You can see through it, so it counts!

Bashful as the Most Interesting Rock in the World enjoying his Dos Equis (XX!) in the company of the ladies.  Stay thirsty, my friend…

And another of Bashful XEROXING his buns…

I used this one before for Quiet Riot, now I’m going to use it again for XM satellite radio!  Q and X in one photo!  Winning!

This used to be a case of XTRA laundry detergent.  Now it’s my suitcase.  Yeah, when I travel, I travel in style…

Advertisement at Comerica Park in Detroit for XFINITY, which appears to be Comcast’s internet service.  Sorry, but as of last week, Justin Verlander can now be found in Houston…

Go ahead, put a big ol’ X on your sweetie in front of 20,000 people.

From Times Square in New York on my Millionaire trip in 2001… an ad for the XFL, which was wrestling honcho Vince McMahon’s answer to the pussified NFL.  The “extreme” football league made it a whole season before folding…

My neighbor’s XMAS decorations came out before they even put the Halloween stuff away last year.


Squirrel X-ING!  Please drive slowly…

Ody, my XL cat…

And if you made it through this thoroughly suspect list of X things that you probably bet I couldn’t have come up with…. then I’ll finally treat you to the most obvious and fun X of them all.  A little XXX scene between Snuggle Bear and Mitzi to help liven up my very family friendly blog!  I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait until I get into the Shelf Critter Theatre groove again…. I miss the series.

Whew!  Made it!  Come back next Tuesday, and don’t ask Y…

  1. well done x-treme funny … our neighbor decided to keep the x-mas decoration the whole year… I’m grateful his star of bethlehem leads me home when the street lights are off ;o)

    I should have known you are creative enough to come up with plenty of X photos! If I had tried to do this, I would still be thinking, “OMG, nothing starts with X!” The only photo I was expecting was the XXX one of Mitzi and Snuggle Bear. I had forgotten about X-ray squirrel tail and Bashful xeroxing his ass.

    • I’m glad the hard letters were all towards the end, because it let me notice all the forgotten X stuff I had in photos while I was looking for pictures for the other letters. I think Z’s gonna be a lot worse than X was, since I only have a couple I can think of off the top of my head…

  3. Congratulations! Pity you didn’t save this one until … (trumpets, drumroll) … XMAS!

    Most E”X”CELLENT!

  5. Piglove says:

    Oh my piggy heavens – MY EYES in that last picture – Lawd have mercy!! Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    • None of that chicanery went on around here before a certain rock came to visit! My critters were all as pure as the driven snow…

      • Piglove says:

        Looks over at my Bashful sleeping so peacefully in his box. No way my rock did that to ya’ll…. wait a minute. He did go out rolling around the hood late last night. I wonder what he was up to? XOXO – Bacon

  6. Chuckles…with praise. X is a tuff one. But I think you did ‘xtra’ outstanding and I’m wondering Y you thought it might be hard. 🤣

  7. ody N biskit….well done on all thingz “X” !!! 🙂 ♥♥

  8. Quirky Girl says:

    Those little ponies sure do indulge an awful lot… Maybe that’s why they’re so exciting. 😛

  9. franhunne4u says:

    Loved it. And may I say, quietly, yes, I miss the shelf critter theatre too. I am looking forward to the (mis-)adventures of your random decorations.

    • I have a whole nine days off coming up soon in which I hope to get everything caught up and my blog habits unfucked from where they’ve been since June. When I get the comic back on Thursday where it belongs, I plan on starting SCT back up immediately. I even have a couple brand new critters to try and corrupt…

  10. draliman says:

    Yay, you did it! Though a couple were a bit of a reach. Your “Xerox” appears to be a “Canon”… 🙂

  11. Well you did not disappoint with your X-tremely X-citing parade of X’s. I knew you would get that Mitzi/Bear combo photo in there for sure. I’m dreading the X when it comes to our Poetic Thursdays though…..always a toughie…..


    • Suzie could probably bail you out with a poetic cheer if the topic was going to be “X-rated!” You’d probably need more black bars on your blog than you’d find in a classified document…

  12. X is difficult, but you survived with great words. Mitzi, she is a happy girl, and the Bear is happier.

  13. Ladybuggz says:

    Hilarious my friend! Snuggle was given a xulos,xiphoid hardon from Mitsy’s xanthic private parts!! lol.. Have fun with that !! lol…

  14. I knew there was an XXX in there. I like your XL cat too.
