Get the coon in the shot damnit!


Then get it back to its wrangler, dismantle the tripod and lights and get the kid in hair and makeup. Quick, big daddy, pack his tambourine and cap and throw him in the car: the Shiners are booked at the hotel down the street and he's not gonna stay this cute forever. Mama's got some s'ploiting to do!

Awesome! That raccoon is so much cooler when it's not . . . you know . . . all stiff and sad on the side of the road.

This post ought to appear in the G&M in answer to the detractors who were given free rein after that article had appeared.

And oh - great picture!

Laura said...

AWESOME PHOTO!!!!

Manager Mom said...

Is that thing real, or stuffed? I find taxidermied animals are SO much more cooperative in photos...

RAcoons are evil. I hate them. Your son is adorable, but the coon makes me shivver. I have too many of them in my neighborhood. I swear that they are out to eat me.

Mental P Mama said...

Well, s'ploit away is what I say.

Chelle said...

Love the shot, and your commentary even more! :)

Stacey @Real World Mom said...

What a great shot! Thanks for stopping by my blog! :-)

Angella said...

Sweet shot!

I'm all about 'sploiting the good shots ;)

kittenpie said...

You mean the raccoon? You're right - he's only cute on that side of the glass.

a kelly said...

Comedic genius turn of phrase!
Great hair (your guy...not the coon)!!

Mac and Cheese said...

Uh oh. Expect comments from some irate raccoons who now need therapy after being exploited this way.

Kyla said...

Cute!

Just Janice said...

Great exploiting - I wonder who will need more therapy? Graham or the 'coon?

Jenifer said...

Who was more surprised?

Cheri said...

AWESOME.

chelle said...

hehe That is a cute picture!

Kami said...

That is one bold racoon. And one sweet boy!

:-)

Gena said...

I love that picture! We used to have raccoons come up on our deck and eat apples we left for them. That was before children and before I learned they were a big rabies carrier! Who knew?

P.S. I'm glad you're ahead of your time. I love reading your blog. I just wish I had more time to read and more time to comment. Keep up the good work.

The Boyds Family said...

What a great shot!!

Karen said...

Geez, why all the trouble with hotel rooms and bars when you could just stand him on the street corner? Oh yeah- darn DYFS getting in the way of exploitation ;) ;) ;)

I started reading Erma Bombeck at age 10. I still do.

Great shot :) Pretty neat that your son is not scared. It looks like he is reaching out for better contact.

KathyLikesPink said...

What a great shot!!! No reflection on the glass - no red eye on the raccoon - wow! Nicely done.

It looks like they're ready for a big hug!

Karen said...

He looks fascinated. What another fun day!

womaninawindow said...

My 80 pound lab looked EXACTLY like this last night when he flew through the air to attack me...erm, I mean, give me love. Great pic!

BlondeMomBlog (Jamie) said...

LOL! Now if you can get Graham AND the coon to play tambourine together you'll make a fortune! ;)

Brittany said...

Everyone is saying how cute this photo is...while when I saw it I thought "OH MY GOSH, that is SCARY!" What a big ol' coon!!!

HRH said...

Very impressive shot!

Victoria said...

Love. It! But that coon is HUGE.
