I was awakened early this morning by weird noises coming from my piano. When I took the front off, a very strange creature emerged from behind the action:

It seemed to have unusual eating habits:

I went off to get a nature guide to see if it was some sort of fauna native to the area, and when I returned, it had disappeared, leaving some eggs behind:

Does anyone know what this is?

Palindrome.... if you are still planning to attend the M&H tour, don't be shocked if you are suddenly requested to arrive a few days early for quarantine and possible decontamination procedures before entering the M&H factory!! eek

Paul--lol.

My guess is that the answer is some palindrome. The clues are pretty tough though.

renner is a natural, other words are tough to come by though... tomato, anemone, eggs dont translate well. "no it ca renner action" is as close as I could come.

Panic! eek Did I sign up for the M&H tour? I would like to go sometime, but it's always been scheduled for the procrastinated indefinite future.

Okay, before my daughter and I spend too much more time trying to figure this out, is the answer really supposed to be a palindrome?

Nope. That's just my name, which I got when someone once accused me of going back on my word ( laugh ).

Things like that seem to have a tendency to happen around this time of year. confused

I know one thing- its not a mouse. I think it is the same thing growing in the back of my fridge. Can't explain the eggs


Someone told me a joke last week about the definition of perfect pitch...

Perfect pitch is when you throw an accordian in a dumpster and hit a banjo....

Hmm let's see.

It suddenly appeared out of no where. It has some resembalance to a plant. It has unusual eating habits, specificaly attracted to a red substance. After eating the substance it produced potential offspring. Were all these events preceded by a total eclipse of the sun?

Is this Audrey III....

Actually thinking back now, there was a total eclipse a few days ago.
