Tuskaninny Day Special
The Island Tuskaninny
On a splendid, sunny summer day,
Island Tuskaninny came to play,
Swimming with grace and ease,
Lounging in the ocean's breeze.
Playing volleyball on sandy shores,
The Tuskaninny racks up the scores,
Basking in the warm sunlight,
The tranquil sky a welcome sight.
In the crystalline clear sea,
The Tuskaninny roams carefree,
With dazzling corals below,
Swaying with the current's flow.
As a scenic sunset draws near,
The Tuskaninny smiles from ear to ear,
Relaxing with a drink in one hand,
Enjoying life on Mystery Island.
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
A puzzle for you to solve -
Here's a hint, for this brave soul,
an N does it involve.
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ N _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ N _ N N _
Can you tell who it is now?
For this creature of adventure,
Perhaps an A they will allow.
_ _ _ _ _ _ A N _ _ _ _ _ _ _ A N _ N N _
Another hint I'll give:
Guess a vowel, an I, a Y
And this majestic soul will live.
_ _ I _ _ _ A N _ _ _ _ _ _ _ A N I N N Y
Now the letters freely form!
After a round of F's and U's
We'll celebrate somewhere warm.
_ _ I F F _ A N _ _ _ _ U _ _ A N I N N Y
The mountains do they climb;
And now suppose the letter H
stands to Honor them through rhyme.
_ _ I F F H A N _ _ _ _ U _ _ A N I N N Y
is a Neopet of skill -
I'll suggest you guess a E or S
or you'll drive them up this hill.
_ _ I F F H A N _ E _ _ U S _ A N I N N Y
has been since Neopia of old
Tucked away in snowy mountains
Where the C, it stands for cold.
C _ I F F H A N _ E _ _ U S _ A N I N N Y
Words, it almost be -
What other letters might it require?
An R, or perhaps a T?
C _ I F F H A N _ E R T U S _ A N I N N Y
plays a game for all the ages.
Risk a G and see if we'll
progress through the game's stages.
C _ I F F H A N G E R T U S _ A N I N N Y
The end is almost nigh!
Suppose you'll guess a K or L
Or risk sending them high!
C L I F F H A N G E R T U S K A N I N N Y
Well what can I say?
You've done well to guess the lot -
Happy Tuskaninny Day!
Famous Tuskaninny Haikus
The Massive Senator:
Weighs a dozen tons and yet,
fits through palace doors!
Tico Tem, the Altador Cup Star:
Brr is it so cold.
The top star of Terror Mountain!
Goals scored left and right.
Munar the InnKeeper:
A warm cabin hides,
amongst Terror Mountain peaks.
Munar's a keen host.
The Maraquan Tuskaninny:
Splashing through the sea,
a brave wee Tuskaninny.
Fighting for Kelpbeard!
Simon and the Snowager:
The sad plushie pet.
Stuck in the Snowager's cave.
Won't you help him out!?
He has not one tell.
Little Timmy's great at cheat!
The round again he wins!
The Lost Desert Decorator:
She decorates well,
Keeping books ordered in the,
Why are we named such?
We don't have a pair of tusks!
If you find out let us all know!
The Slushie Slinger Waitress
Amidst the Altador Cup craze,
One Tuskaninny gets less praise
Than she deserves. Her slushie slings
Always refresh, and give us wings.
Without her work, fanatics can't
Make all the noise that they would want.
How could the Showdown Goalie laugh
Without the Waitress there on staff?
Yes, where would Yooyuball fans be
Without a cool, sweet, slung slushie?
In fact, 'twixt games, most captains buy
Their teams ice drinks to get them by.
Though some complain there's lack of choice
With only three flavours, rejoice!
She knows the Slushie Shopkeeper's
A friend to cold drink connoisseurs.
So though you may be grumpy at
The Cup results, take off your hat
For unsung hero of the Cup,
The Slushie Waitress. Bottoms up!
I was once happy,
Swimming in the sea,
But my friends left me in the dark,
Now all I have is me.
Tuskaninnies are not often mean,
And definitely never cruel,
I was nice when on the scene,
Even at my Neoschool.
I don't know why I'm all alone,
Or why my friends ran off,
But I will keep my happy tone,
Even when they scoff.
I will make a few new friends,
Tuskaninnies through and through,
They will like me to the end,
But I have to ask, can you?
Isybil, the Tuskaninny
On a sunny day, while strolling around,
I happened to stop by the Neopian Pound.
There, I noticed this whining, very sad pet
Who hadn't found her own cozy home yet.
“Tuskaninnies look actually odd!”
Was the very first thing I thought.
With such a big belly, a small tail,
I expected every outfit would fail.
She tried some clothes I had in my closet
And I discovered this species' secret.
Oh, how nice in dresses she could be!
So I took her for a long shopping spree;
We bought four wigs, a couple of skirts,
A gorgeous gown and some pretty shirts.
Our last stop was the Grooming Parlour
Where we remained until its daily closure.
We had a look at shampoos, and bows,
And also at the Faerie Eye Shadows.
Fyoras, Earth, Fire, Water or Light
For Isybil, it was love at first sight!
We came back home with a very empty wallet
But with many new clothes to put in the closet.
And from that warm, sunny day Isybil became
The most spoiled Tuskaninny of the game.
We both have pets, me and you,
which give us fun and help us too.
But can you say your pet is skinny?
I can about my Tuskaninny!
Now he may seem a little big
to someone with an untrained eye,
but when compared to all his species
nobody beats this little guy!
Of course that is all fine and good,
but do you know why he's this way?
I take him down to Kiko Lake
and go with him to swim all day!
Even that is just the start
of the stuff that makes him unique.
You wanna know what else there is?
Well that would simply take all week!
He reads a bunch of books for fun,
And also knows a bunch of tricks:
from jumping through a flaming hoop
to bouncing on his pogo-sticks!
So now you know of my great pet
and most of the great stuff he'd do
but the best thing he does of all,
is be my best friend, through and through.
The Sleeper, the Dreamer, the First to Rise,
Aishas and Lupes and Grarrls and Techos,
With hundred hundred others all drawn bright
Against the darkness of Neopia's night.
But did you know that, very very long ago,
A Tuskaninny who looked up at the starry sky
Would find no dreams of their own writ
Alongside Kreludor's eerie light?
One calm midnight, when Maraqua still writhed
In the grip of its curse, a Starry Tuskaninny
Drifted on the waters straining his sight
To find inspiration in the shapes alight.
He searched for hours and he searched for days,
And at last he admitted he would find no shape
alike to his own; when next came pale twilight,
Heavy on his shoulders was the Tusakninny plight.
Watching the stars turn overhead, minute by minute,
And hour by hour, he pondered what to do.
At midnight he knew: he would rise, shine his light
Down on Neopia night after night--
The Sleeper, the Dreamer, the First to Rise,
Aishas and Lupes and a Tuskaninny stargazer,
With a hundred hundred others all drawn bright
Against the darkness of Neopia's night.
Play Cliffhanger on Tuskaninny Day!
If you can spare fifteen neopoints to play
I know a word game that'll make your day
If you enjoy word puzzles as you allege
How about solving while on a cliff's edge?
Come play cliffhanger with letters and blanks
In Terror Mountain with ice and snow banks
A cute tuskaninny with a message to guess
Choose a letter that you think might fit in best
Guess correctly to keep the tuskaninny still
Incorrect guesses send him straight up the hill
Once your wrong guesses get him to the cliff top
The next sends him plummeting, no time to stop
Study the blanks and correct guesses with care
To help you see which letters likely go where
Type the phrase to wear the puzzle-solving crown
And the brave tuskaninny can finally come down
Summertime has swung its way around
And while most laze and lie down
A Tuskaninny picks up her gown
Slinging slushies amidst the sound
Dealing with easily angered customers
Is not an ideal way to spend your summer
But as the Altador Cup is such a blockbuster
The show must go on, the slinging must occur
With Zeenana, Chokato, and Jumbleberry
One sip will have you feeling light and airy
She must work fast, manually, so please be wary
Recall: the Tuskaninny waitress is no faerie
Gliding up and down the super busy shop
She focuses to avoid any potential drink swap
If one were to drop, she can bring out the mop
But if five flop? She'd regroup and stop
For taking on the job no one else desires
And for her patience which never tires
On Tuskaninny Day, to our slushie supplier,
We applaud her as one of Neopia's best hires!
