"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice


As another postseason begins, today’s events serve as a reminder that it’s time for our annual public safety announcement:


Molinas are extremely common this time of year. Always keep in mind that, even if they do not appear to be a threat, Molinas are very dangerous and can strike without warning. Almost every fall they claim at least one victim, tragedies that could likely have been avoided by taking a bit more care.

So, please, remember to remain on your guard when in the presence of Molinas throughout October and early November. If you come across one, do not attack or threaten it, do not approach its young, and do not hang any curveballs. Back slowly away and overpower it with your fastball. If all else fails, Molinas can generally be outrun.

Observing these simple safety tips will help ensure that you have a happy, healthy, and pleasant fall season.

As the President of Adopt-A-Molina, I approve this message. If you'd like to sponsor a Molina for just $40 dollars a month, please visit my site http://www.adoptamolina.com. Major credit cards and PayPal accepted. Think about it. You could "own" a Molina for just dollars a day.

boiler-plate (aka fine print here. put yer spectacles on):
Donors named A.J. Burnett are prohibited from participating in this conservation program.

[6] Excellent suggestion. As the Deputy Assistant Celebrity Spokesman for Adopt-A-Molina (not to drop names, but I'm third in line to Ali Lohan, yeah, THAT Ali Lohan!), I will contact my counterpart, Alyssa MIlano at Adopt-A-Pavano to see if we can arrange a generous donation in Mr. Pavano's name.

Oh, and the Molina had a 3 hit game.

We like to sing a song to the tone of "I've got a golden ticket" from WIlie Wonka & The Chocolate Factory (the David Wolper version, not the Tim Burton abomination) Called: "I've Got a Golden Molina".
