I have food poisoning and while I've been recovering in bed thinking about Tumblr post plus, I couldn't help but feel like an old English Victorian gentleman who is on his death bed.
Thinking about what will become of my dear beloved Tumblr once I pass, will the unfavourable Earl Post+ have its way with my beloved Tumblr? have I shitposted enough to ensure my blogs survival? how will my business partners (my mutuals) go on?

Is this a zebra? No, why would we put a picture of a zebra on the page for Z?
No, this is a Ornithorhynchus paradoxus.
A what?
A paradoxical bird-snout!
The platypus was given that name by Johann Blumenbach in 1803. But three years earlier George Shaw had named it Platypus anatinus, which was a bit of an issue because the name platypus also referred to a genus of beetle. Thus it eventually became Ornithorhynchus anatinus, or duck-like bird-snout. A hybrid name for hybrid animal.
From: A Bad boy's first reader (NY: GW Carleton & Co., 1881)
