I don't know, but if you're not going to have the piece of candy on the other side, I'll take it! ;)

JD

that's a penguin jimmy. a snow-covered penguin, but a penguin.

MNJohn

It's one of those on-line travel agency gnomes...

Ron

Yep, clearly a penguin (a puffin has a rounder beak).

Esau

Isn't this the very thing that ended up at the bottom of the ocean in your post: "It Came From Beneath The Sea!"?

why is there a wrinkle in the sheet right before the candy? are the cruise's maids messy?

Kheldar

I think it's a plucked turkey.

JimBob

That's got to be Kermit the Frog.

joe P.

A penguin, absolutely. And upon closer inspection I have concluded that it is indeed of the Spheniscus humboldti variety. Its presence in the meditteranean is a bit anomolous, given that its primary home is in the cold waters off of Peru. However, and this is the key, when food shortages run low, it can and will travel very far distances. That, coupled with the fact that it can survive, if need be, in warmer climates such as the Mediterranean, makes this anomoly quite reasonable. Still, I have no clue how it got in Jimmy's room.

Yeah, but how do you explain that the animal here looks as if he has an elephant's trunk?

It's a jackal. Is it a jackal? It's a jackal! A Jackal!

Lee

One of those heads from Easter Island?

John F. Kennedy

It's a cleaned "Sorting Hat" from Harry Potter

Alois

Poor fella. He never stood a chance.

Mary

Penguin. Or dolphin

JonathanR.

A headless chicken...

 Kathryn

The Housekeepers here at WDW can make towel animals that run rings, literally, around the "thing" on your bed, J.

AnnonyMouse

Angel is my guess

Rick Lugari

How uncharitable of you making light of the countless species of animals who have suffered 3rd degree burns over 80% of their body. You all call yourself Catholics yet don't seem to realize that animals are people too!

Sorry, I had to get it in before someone did it for real. ;)

Benard Fife

Why is a towel on your bed? Is it an extra-large tissue?

Ann Margaret Lewis

A bishop with a miter?
--Ann

Ann Margaret Lewis

Or right, an angel. It could be that, too.
--Ann

RC

On first glance, I couldn't tell at all, but after I viewed the other animals and returned, it became obvious that your five-pointed towel friend is a penguin.

matt

guy fawkes

Randolph Carter

It looks much like one of the B5 White Stars (read: a plucked chicken).

Brian

Teenage Mutant Ninja Pizza Slice. Dangerous yet delicious!

momof6

An anonymous veggie from Veggie Tales?

kevin

penguin--the kind that do not fly

Bow

I vote for Kermit.

Josh from Ohio

I was thinking an "armadillo" until I realized you were on a cruise.

DGS

The Hogwarts Sorting Hat is a good guess, but my thought is Father Christmas.

jim

looks like a fisherman sitting on a rock or hill

SDG

I think it looks like Mr. Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas. You can even kind of see his face looking down. He looks a little sheepish, which is uncharacteristic of him, but still.

Incidentally, even I am in danger of confusing posts from "DGS" with my own...

John E

It's a Nemertea. Duh. ;-)

Stupid post.

Tree huggers!

John E

Is this really the best angle? If I squint hard enough it sorta looks like...a crumpled up piece of paper. I think it's one of those Rorschach towlblob tests.

John E

Ok, last guess. It's that pink starfish from the Spongebob cartoon.

Polar Bear

--Joe

Ron Horn

No doubt a sleepy penguin wearing the Sorting Hat from Hogwarts.

Bret Ramsey

man, I was going to try to be funny... but everyone knows it's a Franciscan penguin...is Father Benedict Groeschel with you on the cruise?

Bret Ramsey

I meant in Rome...

Bret Ramsey

or wherever you are :)

A Simple Sinner

You are all wrong.

It is obviously a pillow bunny. Duh!

Pillow bunnies are perfectly cromulent. What sort of uncultured trogladytes are you people?

Sheesh, next thing you are all going to tell me is that you don't get towel monkeys at the hotels you stay at.

A Simple Sinner

Hmmm....

Just noticed I finished my last sentence of my last post with a preposition.

What sort of troglodyte am I?

James

Since there's no solution from Jimmy I reckon it's a computer virus. Now we've all got it too. We've all? Is it, perchance a weevil? Or a flannelgrub?

Carson Weber

Since I'm the first one to mention this... if I'm right... do I get a prize? It's a PENGUIN!

It looks like a depressed KKK member.

J.R. Stoodley

If it's really an animal (and not a human) it's definitely a bird. Penguin is the best guess I think though it could be a poor attempt at a chicken.

Brian

It looks like that crazy old guy from Labyrinth with the bird-like creature on his head.

Ed Pie

I see a president who shall not be named.


(Chester Arthur)

Neal

"Looks like a penguin."

David

The Geico gecko.

A.Williams

You're all wrong!!

It's the Pillsbury Dough Boy after someone tried to make a fortune cookie out of him!

Leigh

Almost indubitably a penguin.

But then, I just read an anthology of Batman stories and have a certain supervillain and his totemic birds on my mind. Argh! I don't have time to write fanfic -- I'm supposed to be a professional writer, creating my own original universes and writing in them.

But it is interestng to imagine what Burgess Meredith might have done if he could've played a straight-up version of the Penguin, rather than a campy one. Elegant, dangerous, and complex, but not the repellant grotesque Danny DeVito made the character into.

A. Williams

...Then again..

It might be a leftover Taco Bell Super Supreme Bean Burrito?

A.Williams

....if you lift it up you might find some cheese under there! This would be a dead giveaway!!

MacBeth

"It's a Nemertea. Duh. ;-)"

LOL!!!! That's what I said after seeing the Florida video. Shheesh.

But I think the folded animal is an anteater.

Erik

It's a sleeping...er, praying...Dominican friar. "So much preaching, so very sleepy..."

Pius VII

We declare: If anyone should say that this animal is NOT a mole, anathema sit!

Mary Kay

:) at A. Williams' fortune cookie comment.

Sadly, it couldn't be the Pillsbury Doughboy. I found this on the Internet:

It is with heavy heart that we must pass on the following news. Please join us in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community.

The Pillsbury Doughboy died today of a yeast infection and complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71. Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin.

Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, Little Debbie and Captain Crunch. The graveside was piled high with flours. Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded.

Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still, as a crusty old man, was considered a roll model for millions.

Doughboy was survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John Dough and Jand Dough, plus they had a bun in the oven. He was also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

JD

"I'll answer tomorrow (assuming I'm able to log in tomorrow)."-JA

he is leaving us hanging on this one!

Tim J.

Love that, MK! Got to share that one with the kiddos... they have inherited our somewhat warped sense of humor.

Eowyn

It's Triangle Man

Esau

Doughboy was survived by his wife Play Dough

Mary Kay:

Isn't 'Play Dough' a guy? I mean, isn't the face on a play dough container that of a guy?

also:

two children, John Dough and Jand Dough

Shouldn't that be Jane Dough?

Thanks for the laugh dough; I mean, 'though'! ;^)

Mary Kay

Esau, I'll own up to "Jand" as a typo.

About Playdough, I just copied from one of a multitude of emails I used to get from someone who collected everything going around the Internet. Now that I think of it, maybe Playdough is the kind of name that be either he or she, like Chris, Pat or Terry. (Christopher/Christine, Patrick/Patricia or Terrence,Teresa)


Going back to the original topic, did Jimmy ever say what it was, or did he just skip off to the next place?

Esau

Mary Kay:

Actually, I LOVED your post!
I was only teasing by mine. ;^)

Going back to the original topic, did Jimmy ever say what it was, or did he just skip off to the next place?

Yeah, about this -- I was hoping this would be revealed by now. =^(

kaneohe

Mary Kay: the "obit" was delightfully delicious!!

My guess is that after months of trying to come up with something warm, fuzzy, playful, and relevant for the masses, the orthodox Cardinals finally got Pope Benedict to put the Motu Proprio towel to rest.

The Pope promises to try again later using something fluffier and more colorful.

kaneohe

Aloha, forgot to mention I'll be on the mainland for a month or so and would love to attend a TLM. I'll be in the Beverly MA (North Shore area)and in Central Maine. Does anyone know how I can find a church that celebrates the TLM?
Many thanks for your help!

Grace and peace.

Realist

Since it is white and on a bed, it must be a sick "pretty wingie talking thingie" with the flu.

If it turns red, it could only be a sick "demon of the demented".

Ted

Why wait. Call the ship's exorcist.

Esau
