The Call of the Woluf

Email Submitted by Kaila:

Hi there!  I read in your profile that you like animalism.  I also believe that every man has a spirit animal that guides him and helps him on his way.  Mine is the woluf.

Pack animals and solitary, social and alone, carnivores yet gentel, the woluf is one of nature's greatest mysteries!  They can be dangerous, yet good to their cubs and the humans that raise them.  A pack of them can kill, but woluf mommies have been known to suckle human infants! (I've done research on it a lot because they are my spirit animal).  In the distant past some wolufs did fly

I think that a good way to get to know someone is through their spirit animal.  Other than being a woluf I am also a musician and I like to explore new places.  Do you like camping?  I camp out a lot in the summer and have even caught my own food!

Anyway what is your spirit animal?  If I were to guess I would say swan or she-lion.

  1. "In the distant past some wolufs did fly"

    The sheer matter-of-fact attitude that this statement was stated blows my mind.

  2. I howled with derision, personally.

  3. Because we're talking about "wolufs," it is indeed hard to prove they didn't fly, as not much is known about wolufs in general.

  4. Maybe he's from Senegal - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolof_people

    1. I was thinking the same thing. Are they animist?

  5. Alan Garner: You guys might not know this, but I consider myself a bit of a loner. I tend to think of myself as a one-man wolf pack. But when my sister brought Doug home, I knew he was one of my own. And my wolf pack... it grew by one. So there... there were two of us in the wolf pack... I was alone first in the pack, and then Doug joined in later. And six months ago, when Doug introduced me to you guys, I thought, "Wait a second, could it be?" And now I know for sure, I just added two more guys to my wolf pack. Four of us wolves, running around the desert together, in Las Vegas, looking for strippers and cocaine. So tonight, I make a toast!

    Sorry, couldn't help myself :)

  6. ^ Saw it twice in theatres, can't wait for Part 2

  7. ^^ But...they're not talking about wolves, they're talking about wolufs!

  8. I can't believe that no one has linked to this yet: http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2011/01/wolves.html
