He will use that man to crack an oyster open.
Or crack that man open with a rock.

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 04:46 PM

I never noticed otters have two sets of whiskers. Does anyone know anything about that?

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 04:49 PM

Oh, fer qte!!!!

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 04:57 PM

hmmm. i guess the 'stay off the otter' sign kinda went right by Theo there.
what a rebel.

Glad I waited, it was SO worth it! this might be my next vaca destination!

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 04:57 PM

omigosh - imagine if it had real otter fur.

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 05:03 PM

GREAT otter!!!!

P.S. Birnamwood WI, is the home of the Giant Badger:

@Charliewabba - If it had real fur, you would have to use the jaws of life to stop me from snorgling it!

Teho, once again, you rock my (non-ferrety) socks.

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 05:40 PM

Ahhhhhh, one of the Table-Eaters, lyin' on the head of one of the Tummy-Eaters... What is the world comin' to?!

MOST excellebt pic! Thanks you, Teho & Jaye for sharing your vacayshe with us.

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 05:57 PM

When will the DVD "Moderators Gone Wild" be released? I, for one, must have eet!!

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 05:57 PM

Oh! Some of my family lives there! I probably have childhood pictures at that otter!

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 05:57 PM

I propose an annual Cutologist pilgrimage to the GIANT EVIL OTTER monument.

Theo, how long do you think it would take me to get to the wondrous Fergus Falls from St Louis Park? I am heading to the Twin Cities in two weeks to visit the in-laws, and now I am wondering if a day trip is in order...

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 06:10 PM

Damn, just looked at the map. Wish the in-laws still lived in Fargo. Looks like a quicker trip.

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 06:12 PM

Alexis -- nominally 3 hours, but that stretch of I-94 between the Cities and St. Cloud is almost always a damn parking lot, at least in spots. Skip it if at all possible. Once you're safely past St. Cloud, you can use 94 again.

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 06:17 PM

Apparently Theo doesn't know what he otter do.

fish eye no miko
 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 06:18 PM

What the...?! How did he get up there?! Does that otter have giant steps on the back of his neck or is scalingk otter heads the newest rage with you kids these days?

[By laying a finger aside of my nose, and being Teh Mod™, up the otter I rose... - Ed.]

Silly Mama
 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 06:22 PM

Yep. This is why I love Minnesota.

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 06:28 PM

Oh, Theo (Oh Jayne)
It is as I pictured, um you are as I pictured, too.

Now stay off the damned otter like they told you, will ya? Sheesh!

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 06:28 PM

Thanks, Theo. I think it may have to wait for another trip. One during which gas prices are lower (HA!). But I'm so glad I know it exists now!!

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 06:31 PM

Me thinks that pic #2 is a prime example of interspecies snorgling. ;D

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 06:35 PM

Not to brag, but Minnesota (my home) is also the home to a giant prarie chicken, fish, black duck, a blue ox, and a turkey. And one state over, North Dakota, has the worlds largest cow, buffalo, crane and a giant pheasent. Things get really crazy up here.

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 06:48 PM

That's not an otter, it's a ferret!


 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 07:00 PM

So that's what Theo looks like...

I was once going to stay in a hotel shaped like a dog, but I was too young at the time. :( It made me sad.

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 07:05 PM

And Wisconsin is the home of the Giant Muskie.

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 07:13 PM

AND Denver has a HUGE blue (yes blue) bear, peering into the Convention Center:

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 07:18 PM

Did you guys see actual live otterz??

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 07:33 PM

omfg, proof that Teho actually exists!!!!!

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 07:46 PM

Heh. I went to high school there. I WAS an Otter.

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 07:48 PM

AmyJ-- cats have two sets of whiskers-- mostly on the muzzle, and a few on the cheeks, plus the eyebrows sticking up. And a few on the back of the wrists too. Don't know about dogs-- don't have one handy.

Sam-- so I'm guessing there's not a lot to do or visit in MN and ND...?

Tina Rhea
 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 08:01 PM

Sam, that WAS meant as a joke.

Tina Rhea
 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 08:02 PM

All we have is the world's largest ball of twine.

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 08:28 PM

Patty -- a'HEM

(OK OK, we *both* have the biggest twineball, depending...)

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 08:40 PM

Yay, Teho! You show that fake otter who is boss!

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 09:32 PM

Ah yes, the Blue Bear...

We also have this ridiculous eyesore:


 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 10:48 PM

Theo-you look as funny as you sound.
No wait, that came out wrong!!

Martha in Washington
 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 10:58 PM

::wide eyes::

ZOMG! As if the Guthrie Theatre wasn't reason enough. I must visit thees place!

 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 11:24 PM

Pardon my ignorance but the twin cities are Minnesota and ?
Theo: Come now, that's not dignified for a man of your age, supposing the neighbours veiw CO. :o}

Hon Glad
 |  Aug 04, 2008 at 11:57 PM

Wait. Giant otterz AND the illustrious Theo and Jaye? CO double whammy!! You guys are as cute as the otter! (Although granted, I don't want to beep either of your noses. Is it weird that I still kinda wanna beep the giant fake otter's nose?)

Sadly, I don't live anywhere near any giant stuff. Things here are more on the "wee" end of the spectrum.

 |  Aug 05, 2008 at 01:49 AM

Isn't there somewhere with big dinosaurs too? Near Mesa Verde, perhaps? I can't quite remember the name, I was 10 at the time and now I'm mumblemumble years older.

 |  Aug 05, 2008 at 03:05 AM

THIS is a perfect example of why I love road trips! All this funk you inevitably pass along the way, that tickles your imagination ;D

 |  Aug 05, 2008 at 03:09 AM

@Hon Glad: The Twin Cities are Minneapolis and Saint Paul.

Gail (the first one)
 |  Aug 05, 2008 at 03:27 AM

It should be CuteOtterload!

Amirite? XD

 |  Aug 05, 2008 at 04:04 AM

Huh, never thought our little podunk Fergus would get on the map! Check out Rothsay, with the world's largest Prairie Chicken, or Vergus, with the world's largest Loon (the bird, not the residents!!!) We Minnesooodans are well known for our giant animals!

 |  Aug 05, 2008 at 04:07 AM

Yup, they grow 'em big up north.

I live about a hundred miles from the BIG DUCK!:

 |  Aug 05, 2008 at 04:38 AM

Tia- Testify girl, testify!

See how well your Otterdom (Otterhood?)has prepared you for this?!

I for one, would love to see the giant prarie chicken-is it inflated or flat chested? Oh, maybe those are Guinea Fowl.... hmmm SQUAWK!!!!

 |  Aug 05, 2008 at 04:45 AM

Aww Theo thanks for sharing! I can only imagine Jaye must have the wickidest of humor senses to hang with you on a daily, eh? *giggles*

 |  Aug 05, 2008 at 04:48 AM

I am proud beyond belief to have contributed to the Otter-mania and badgering http://www.weebls-stuff.com/toons/badgers/ of Teho into posting his vacation pics.
