Inugpasugssuk

Inugpasugssuk, yes it is a real mythical creature. . . (wait. . . yeah that makes perfect sense) . . . .Anyway, I decided to turn to a lesser known and more friendly creature.
The Inugpasugssuk is a friendly giant whose so enormous that the lice on him are the size of large rodents!

Large, friendly and has a name you can't pronounce!  What's not to like?

  1. love giants... no the lice, but why would the lice be the size of rodents? wouldn't they be the same size, unless where nug' is from things are much bigger.... hmmm. i would like to order a steak from there...

    1. That is a very good question. I am inclined to agree that where he is from, everything is bigger. It also may be just an example of how large he is comparably. . .

  2. I'm not sure lice the size of rodents render him in the friendly category - unless he treats them like pets, of course, maybe takes them to pet shows and wins rosettes for them?

  4. This is a great thought now. I am not that sure about this being a friendly creature considering lice is a scavenger. Lice the size of a rodent...WOW. What is next ticks the size of a large dog?

    It sure is an interesting post, I never knew giants had lice or scalp issues.

    1. Also another valid point. However, if you were a large mythical giant, (naturally not very smart) and couldn't even fit in a regular size shower, don't you think you would have lice and scalp issues? :)

  8. Wait - I just said it aloud - Inugpasugssuk -and are you sure this is a real mythical beast? LOL Ofcourse I had to google it and loved increasing my love for this Giant creature. I now want some images to put on my wall, I think it would be a great addition to my mostly human and definitely below the Arctic circle elements of nature.....tee hee hee hee

    I loved your post on the main A to Z blog. It is exactly what I needed to read today. How did you know that? Learning of this mythical Inugpasugssuk is just icing on the cake!

  9. Inugpasug-whatever could be as big and friendly as he wants to be. Still, I'm not coming anywhere near him until he visits a doctor to handle his um, lice problem! LOL.

    Cheers!

  14. Rolling on the floor laughing over the picture this creates in my mind--lice as big as rodents UGH! makes me want to scream, but then the picture of dust mites on a televisions show the other day made me want to scream and go wash everything in the house with bleach or something. LOL
    Thanks for engaging my imagination.

  16. I think I could handle the giant part, but lice the size of rodents? Don't think so! Would have to pass on the lice, no matter what the size.

    1. Agreed! My little sister had lice years ago and it was NOT fun to deal with. I can't imagine them being any bigger and having to deal with them.
