    The Walrus Magazine

  • But if he did wave an oosik around, his was bigger than Don's.

  • Beaver Cleaver! *snort* *cringe* *snort*

  • I still ♥ this page.

  • Jeez, a person goes away for a few hours to get some work done and all hell breaks loose here.

    Nice job, everyone. :-)

  • Sorry, U--just think Ozzie and Harriet.

    October 17, 2007

  • I love this page.

    October 17, 2007

  • Well there goes that happy childhood memory...

    October 17, 2007

  • Beaver Cleaver is the scariest name I have ever heard.

    October 17, 2007

  • I don't know what's worse, the inappropriate irony of your joke, or the invocation of TV's second biggest nerd (following Wil Wheaton, of course).

    October 17, 2007

  • Well, I wasn't going to say that, but I'm glad you did.

    October 17, 2007

  • Wait, wait... that's so ironic, isn't it? Beavers with baculums? Bacula? (Scott?) Really? I mean... beavers?

    October 17, 2007

  • Yes, c_b, it's true. The beaver also has a baculum.

    Sounds like a list to me...

    October 17, 2007

  • No knees? This is all very dubious.

    October 17, 2007

  • ...Wow... *marvels*

    You know, I'm going to open a can of worms here, but I really want to know: what about beavers?

    October 17, 2007

  • C_B--so do minks, raccoons, and otters. Hmmm...all animals that spend time around water. COLD water...

    October 17, 2007

  • Not likely, yarb, since they don't have knees.

    October 17, 2007

  • Like a frightened turtle, reesetee...

    October 16, 2007

  • Walruses have penis bones. But do they have kneecaps?

    October 16, 2007

  • You mean...shrinkage?

    October 16, 2007

  • My theory is that it's an evolutionary adaptation. Walruses spend a lot of time in cold water, and cold water...ummm...makes things...you know...shrink.

  • The typical one is about two feet long. Really.

    October 16, 2007

  • If I had a "Do Not Need to Know" list, this would be on it.

    October 16, 2007

  • It has a bone?!

    October 16, 2007

  • The baculum (penis bone) of a walrus. There is also a ski race near Talkeetna, Alaska, called the Oosik Classic. Don't know why--there isn't a walrus within 700 miles of Talkeetna.
