Good lord, that animal is so not from this planet. Does it even have eyes? Does it have suction cups on its toes? Can it climb straight up a wall? And most importantly, how would any of our cats react if they were to come face to face with such a creature? I am so excited about this Nat Geo special. It will be appointment TV for me tomorrow!

He makes me think of a big piece of salmon! I want to eat him! Is that wrong?

Yes, it is terribly wrong and you're probably going straight to animal rights activist Hell. Nevertheless, this is one of the more amusing comments we have had the pleasure to read on The Flaming Nose and thus, you are forgiven. Also, your blog is very funny and cool.

Well, he -- the salamander, not Jack -- is sort of salmon-y, isn't he? (Come to think of it, Jack might be salmon-y, too, not sure...) A guy in the special said that the feet tasted like chicken, in which case I say just eat a danged chicken, right?

Jack, we'll make an exception for you...just this once. You get one salamander foot, and that's it!

Lisa, I love that you have morphed into Robert Benchley. Maybe I'll be Dorothy Parker! (Did you ever read that great biography of her by Marion Meade?)
