Marilyn Manson, Dita von Teese and a koala who hopes to use this exposure to launch its burlesque career.
snapped while on their australian tour (duh). the staff member assigned to be their guide described them as "[the] most knowledgeable visitors I've ever taken through". apparently they'd looked up a bunch of real information about koalas beforehand.
You know, it just occurred to me that the only time I can recall seeing a koala up close was when we hosted an English visitor once; and we took her to some wildlife park specifically so she could hold one. I suspect I turned down the chance to hold one myself; since they tend to pee on people and frankly I wasn't paying for the privilege (where we went it cost extra to hold a koala, on top of admission). Otherwise i've only seen them waaaay up in trees. Usually asleep. Which is fine by me, that's what they do :)
BTW... please link through to this page rather than deep linking the image. Thanks. Here's the code to make it really easy :)
