    Joke one: “You…. want me to get in THAT? But it’s gonna be cold!”

    Joke two: “Oh, hi there! I made you some ice for your party!”

  7. R. Moore says:

    I love the little paw pointing at the ice.

    I just love otters, though. And it’s hot out, so the ice is pretty appealing, too.

  8. Oh my god! How cute!!

    I LOVE the TX state aquarium!!

    Such an expressive face!

  18. donutbill says:

    mmm…tub ‘o cocktails…

  19. He’s adorable alright, but he looks kind of rubbery to me. Maybe that’s just ’cause he’s little and doesn’t have his full coat yet? I still wanna hold him and squeeze him and pet him….

  20. Shannon Johnson says:

    I otter get you good for making me squeal *squeal* with delight at seeing the otter.

  21. a cutie by any otter name would be just as cute.

  22. this many comments in and no one’s made an otter pop (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otter_Pops) reference yet?

  23. michellemybelle says:

    I love this term from the article: “howdy era.” I hope Odie and Gwynivere fall madly in otter love!

  24. Absolut Otter.

  25. I believe the otter is trying to get us all drunk so he can take advantage of us with his evil plans

    don’t drink it, who knows what he put in the drink!!!

  26. Yitzysmommie says:

    YM runs in, plants a kees on that superb nosicle and runs out again giggling.

  27. Catherine says:

    When someone asks about “bleen”, why doesn’t someone answer? Doesn’t anyone know? Someone said it and we sheep follow along?

  28. NYgirly says:

    *removes floofy sock from dresser drawer*

    *snips into sock to make a neck hole and two arm holes*

    *[ever-so-gently] slides supah-stylin’, way-cOuture sock onto ottey-O and sneaks him into bed

    …on mah pillow ^^*

  29. Odie is so cute! I’m glad that family didn’t just leave him there.

  30. acelightning says:

    I had a friend a long time ago who was “otterly” mad about otters. In fact, that expression looks sort of familiar… Marjie, did you finally manage to come back as an otter after all?

  31. fish eye no miko says:

    firefinch said: “Hermione’s Patronus!”

    I almost mentioned that, myself…
    So what’s he doing, protecting her from the ice? ^_^

  32. Catherine–maaaaa.

    (pit-pat of wet feet)
    Oim an owtah, wiv a Bwitish accent, dontchano.

  42. Catherine–no apologies needed, I was just being sheepish!

  43. Catherine says:

    hahahaha, ewe are funny!

  44. Tears in my eyes – he’s too cute.

  45. Late July Ad Campaign: Getter ‘otter? Call an otter!

  46. Behold…the disapproving otter.

  47. “And see, here is where they mixed up the drinkie-poos, but I thought I was s’posed to swim in thar! I stuck my paw in and it’s REALLY cold, dewd!! So where am I s’posed ta’ swim then, huh? *looks to the left, looks to the right, looks straight at camera* Otter-tini’s? You want me to DRINK that stuff?? My Momma wouldn’t-a-liked ‘dis!”

  48. Valerie J. says:

    OMG! I feel like a rock star! When I submitted it I was thinking more like, “Hey Guys, I bought a whole 24 pack of Pabst and I never got to drink ONE!!” But Otter-tinis are so much more sophisticated! :)

  49. bats :[ says:

    Otter noses just slay me…

  50. Shaken, not gyrated please. Please, I’m begging you, don’t let a few martinis lead to the otter bump n grind.

  51. Odie, you are too cute! I am very glad you were rescued.

    Plus you can shake it better than most people I know!

  52. Allo, moi noim iz Hairy P. Otter, an’ apparently, Oi am Hermione’s Patronus!

  53. Isn’t he too young to be mixing up the Ottertinis?

    Well, with that moist nosicle and those whiskers… go ahead!

  54. Catherine no one answered cause it was Meg the one and only. she was being funny.

    anyway Bleen is cause Theo our beloved moderator hates when you say first on the first post. so we all go bleen instead and if you say first he will change it to say bleen unless you make a very witty post incorporating the word first. of course this is difficult to do as you are trying to beat everyone else who is trying to be the first post.

    Snicker… and it makes for some way more interesting first posts.

  55. gin and otter pops

  64. People,
    Thanks to a 47-page email fro Theo (bless hees heart) I think I fully understand what “Bleen” means—I swear I wasn’t sure!!! Theo has a great explanation, and I feel like I’m one of the crowd again. Now, if ONLY I could get him to post his explanation on the Glossary!?

    XO,
    Meg

  68. ka9q's wife says:

    Is my memory going because of advanced old age but can’t ice water be colder than just plain ice? Or does it just seem colder or Did I just do too many drugs back in the hippy days. Wait I was a punker not a hippy. Back in the punker days.

  78. Hellooooooooooo.
    I asked for pina colada flavor in here. Is that so hard to do?? *puts otter hands on otter hips and walks away muttering*

  79. Spryte808 says:

    Don’tcha knowit, the Otter eez also on Icanhascheezburger!! Double the Paparazzi!

    http://www.icanhascheezburger.com

    I bet the Otter is looking fer hees cheezburger.

  80. What a cutie. He can fix me a drink anytime……..

  81. divine ms k says:

    aww. *snif*

    “Odie was found in February by a family in Tyler [TX] as he nestled against his dead mother.”

    *WAAAAAAAH* Poor lil’ otter!!

  82. pat_the_bunny says:

    That shiny, black, and rather prominent nosicle,

    I must beep eet.

    *beep!*

  83. ThreeCatNight says:

    Otterly sweet, but an underage drinker!

  84. pat_the_bunny says:

    His expression, his lil human like pose! I can’t stand it!

    Must . . . look . . . away . . . before . . . brain

    *ker-splode!*

  85. am i the only one who has a taste for an otter-pop?

  86. guineapiggin9 says:

    I love the look on his face. It seems to say “Lookee wat I got…I got ice…U want some??”

  87. Awwwww!
    He’s otterly adorable. He’s all like “huh?”
    And such a sad little story. I’m so glad he got rescued.

  88. Barkeep – skip the olive juice – make mine with otter, thanks!

  89. Catherine says:

    I’ll pass on the drink; perhaps anotter time, anotter place.

  90. Or I should say “utterly ottorable”

  91. Posh Tater says:

    Pyrit, your Otter appears to have a Brooklyn accent, surely?!!! Either that or he’s as British as Dick van Dyke!

    (I can see the British thing in the posture though, don’t get me wrong…. waiting for the 8.02 to Waterloo, The Times tucked under one arm, bowler hat in hand…)

  92. Candace says:

    ooooooo! Otter’s aren’t evil! They are adorable and know how to make lovely martinis.

  93. Candace says:

    Oh! I just read his story! So sad! I like the part about him having sleep overs with the staff. Poor little dude. I want to kiss his little nose and make it all better.

  94. a different Laura says:

    I wonder if they made popcorn and told ghost stories and played truth-or-dare at the otter sleepovers.

  95. Cutest dang thing I’ve EVER seen.

  96. at the texas state aquarium i got to meet odie!!! i just thought odie was so cute when i first saw him. We heard his story at sea camp and we all felt sooo bad for him. I saw him on this website and thought OMG this is odie!!!

  97. He looks to me like he is saying, “Surely you don’t want me to get in there? It looks cold!”

  98. you expect me to jump in that? hell no.

  99. Patrick says:

    Otters are my favorite animals in general (with honorable mentions to dogs, prairie dogs, squirrels, hedgehogs, and other critters with moist nosicles).

    Odie is the cutest creature ever featured on this site. I have forwarded him all over the place now.

    I too was thrilled to learn in HP a while back that Hermione’s Patronus was an otter. I believe JKR said in an interview that her patronus would be an otter, and that’s why Hermione’s is.

    And if Odie were willing, I think he could star in an all-animal version of Hairy Otter and the Bucket of Ice.

  100. sunnymum says:

    OMG they found him “nestled against his dead mother.” Sad start for the guy. But soon this cutie patootie will be swimmin’ with Gwynivere, a nice female otter at the same place! The ear to head ratio and the mouf are killing me!

  101. HeidStar says:

    Actually Step Four would appear to be what the curator of marine mammals and birds at the Texas State Aquarium euphemistically (and VERY amusingly) calls “the howdy era with Gwynivere.” *hic*

  102. That picture is so cute I literally sqealed.

  103. Oh my, an ottertini! Shaken, not stirred, on the rocks. Hehe.

  104. Snowpea says:

    He’s saying, “I can has ice?”

    [I HAS A IEC BUKKIT! - Ed.]

    [NOOOOOO -- DEY BE TAKIN DER WIKSEY NEAT! - Ed.again]

  105. “Excuse me, but I believe that I ordered my bath water to be gently steaming, and I wanted it to be lilac scented, not freesia. If you do not get my bath water correct very soon, then I shall be late to the opera and, Wilkins, I shall be most displeased.”

  106. He’s like a little, living cartoon character. I love it!

  107. Somehow this picture makes me taste oysters…

  108. The way he’s holding both arms (flippers?) out like that looks more like “I can has hug?”

  109. Who durnk all ze burrzzz????
