When the Koala Sings
What do you mean I’m not a bear? I have all the koalifications!
I’m a little behind in my posting, but couldn’t let this third session with Raspbury Rearwin - aka the Koala - wait any longer. It’s no secret that although he has a human avatar (pictured above) Rasp prefers to perform as a fuzzy koala bear with his sidekick Joey. The reason puzzled me until I started to get to know him a little better. I even asked him why he uses a koala avatar and his answer was predictable and a little ho hum: “I've always like Koalas. They are adorable creatures. I've never seen anyone say, ‘man I really don't like koalas.’ Plus, it's very disarming for people. I think it lets people know I'm not too serious about anything.”
Then I heard him sing his version of “Take On Me,” and suddenly the koala was crystal clear. To form your own opinion, click on the image above to start the recording and go to minute 6:46. In keeping with the spirit of minute 6:46, and Rasp’s quest for all things goofy, I offer the following koala memes.
“I’m not lazy. I’m just conserving energy.”
“I give Koal-ity hugs.”
“Who woke me up? You will feel my wraith.”
“You’ve got star Koal-ity.”
“I’m here for Koal-ty time.”
“Keep calm and eat eucalyptus.”
“I love spending Koal-ity time together.”
“Why was the Koala scientist so well-respected?
He was known for conducting excellent koalatative research.”
Okay, I promise to stop. But let me share just one more bit of koala fun. It’s a video that’s guaranteed to make you smile - just like Rasp’s music and avatar :-) Enjoy.

P.S. Minute 34:13 is pretty funny too :-)
