Good luck with that dragon!

The mediæval bestiaries would have us believe that the panther has dominion over dragons and other monsters of that ilk. Even the breath of the panther, redolent though it is of corruption from decomposing shreds of muscle fibre caught between its teeth, is enough to reduce the average monster to a state of trembling obedience. [/David Attenborough voice]
This man misheard the message, possibly because of David Attenborough’s peculiar accent, and has dressed up as a pangolin instead. He appears to have constructed his suit of armour out of artichoke scales.

...nothing like a good game of "who's got the tooth"!

This is typical of how the history of Amazon Bob-sleighing is covered up. Here is actual proof of the team practicing for the Athens Winter Olympics in BC 90210 and it is being passed off as artichoke armored people looking for teeth.
Enough, I say!
P.S. Artichoke armour is actually tough but lightweight and confuses the enemy who think that a cat is urinating near them.

Artichoke armor had a briefly successful run, until it was discovered that it was vulnerable to a mixture of mayonnaise and mustard...

In preliminary tests of the artichoke armour, it turned out to annoy the hagfish who is not prepared to give Mr Pangolin a ride.

Nudie Bondage Girl at the left is wondering "What is that terrible cat-pee smell?" I doubt that he will get lucky.

I wonder if the pangolin, like the beaver and capybara, was considered a fish for purposes of fast and abstinence. Do scales a "fish" make, or is an aquatic environment a necessity?

Personally I am not big on abstinence.

he does have a pretty good batch of groupies there though

I spent a year trying to learn the pangolin, but damn, that Möbius-format fretboard absolutely flummoxed me.

Probably would have helped if had any innate talent...

There is not much worse than "Pangolin Wind" I'm just sayin'

Sure, you look tough to hunchbacks when you're a hunchback in armor, but to us straightbacks you're just another footstool.

A picnic is always nice, but next time let's choose a place with some vegetation.
