That Darned Walrus

February, 2005

I don't know why everyone likes this fellow as much as they do. I, for my own part, loathe anthropomorphic animal creatures, which I suppose might explain some of my bafflement over other peoples' fondness for this guy. I will say that I am a big fan of that Soviet Union military surplus lawnmower he's pushing around. People ask me "Dave, why is that walrus pushing a lawnmower?". I tell them "Hey, even a walrus wants a neat and tidy lawn, right?". That tends to shut them up.
