*This post is motivated by my somewhat real, somewhat joking love of jaguars (the animal – though the car is nice too). For the history, see my twitter account background, @haikustanley or this post. Also this post is fun.
Jaguar – Physical
Friends call him ‘the regulator’ because he regulates other species’ populations.
“Awwwwwww, look it! Ahhh! He’s eating me!” The person who said this was very proud to have been eaten by a jaguar. (I’m guessing.)
“Other animals are intimidated by the jaguar.” (A direct quote from my 4th grade report.)
If he had to get a corporate job, it would probably be in sales. That’s not really interesting, just saying.
True story: he went to get a tattoo and the tattoo artist said, “ok, what do you want?” And the jaguar said, “I don’t know. Something that looks cool.” The tattoo artist said, “no problem.” Four hours later the jaguar had a little tattoo of himself.
Jaguar – Emotional
Don’t have a fear of commitment, have a commitment to fear.
Have loved, and lost, and danced like nobody’s watching. Haven’t been to Disneyworld though.
Can’t bring themselves to buy a ‘proud parent’ bumper sticker, but the sentiment is all the same.
Has three emotions: badass, sleeping, other. The ‘other’ category has things like fear and sadness and normal stuff like that.
Wake up full of pity. Wait, no, hunger. Sometimes both.
Jaguar – Spiritual
The animal version of a job fair. If you think this doesn’t make sense, you’re right.
BOOM! (That’s what they say randomly, spiritually that is.)
If their aura had a noise it would be the song ‘Duel of the Fates.’
The first time a jaguar found out it was revered as a religious symbol it went and told its dad. The dad chuckled and shook his head and said, “son, you just met your first recruiter. Those guys will say anything to get you to join the Marines.”
Give hugs that could kill a man with how much emotional comfort they provide.
Jaguar – Bradual
Sometimes lashes out at zookeepers.
Uses the word ‘pounce’ in 4 out of 5 sentences.
Like real jaguars, marks territory with waste or by clawing trees. Unlike real jaguars, dances while he does these things.
Acts on instincts. Neurotic, weird, pizza-loving instincts.
Drools more than should be legally allowed.
The Pictures Above
1) Jaguar – Physical: A tiny toy jaguar from the San Antonio zoo. Behind it is a crappy painting I did for my sister.
2) Jaguar – Emotional: A picture of an actual jaguar.
3) Jaguar – Spiritual: A picture from the 4th grade report I did on jaguars. Come back tomorrow to read the report!
4) Jaguar – Bradual: The notebook I used for the report. The 4 stickers were used to cover when I spelled my name wrong.
