Proper vet-ing

Mr. Right turns up a helpful article by Wayne Bruce, DVM, on the care and feeding of the moonbat (Lunaris vespertilio). Emphasis is laid upon the necessity to spay/neuter, and there are gratuitous references to patchouli, Kool-Aid, and Oliver Willis.

What's that you say? Wingnuts? I just take one out of the toolbox when I need one.

Mr. Right does his part to improve the civility of respectful discourse for the new year. Bravo (said with little enthusiasm and lots of sarcasm).

Got yer wingnut right here.

Uh, wouldn't the Linnaeus-style name put the genus ("bat") before the species ("moon-"), as in Vespertilio lunaris?

Ain't no biologist over here, Boss, just askin'.

. . . especially since the veterinarian in question has put his name in the proper Linnaean order.

I cut, I paste; I do not splice. :)

I had thought that moonbats, being spineless, were properly classified as achordata.
