Evil Ottertude


Don’t worry, I forgive you *wink of death*

I didn’t realize they were so evil at such a young age, Alexa G.



  1. Elizabeth says:

    Why I otter… *grumble*

  2. it looks like Popeye, the sailor otter!

  3. fish eye no miko says:

    Aw.. how can something so cute manage to look so evil?

  4. I didn’t realise it either but this little guy’s facial expression matches my inner feelings perfectly this cold Wednesday morning. I mean, how can it be COLD in AUGUST!??? Bloddy London….. *grumble* *grumble*

  5. warrior rabbit says:

    Boy, that LOOK. So grumpy! I guess I’d be annoyed if someone took pictures of me on the scale, too. It’s such a private moment… of shame.

  6. warrior rabbit says:

    Moderation… for what?!

  7. (The Original) Mel says:

    I lof heem. I will not kees heem because he ees too ebil. Don’t speak leetle otter. I weel lof you from far away.

  8. I’m so happy it’s cold and rainy here in Seattle, Kasia. It’s been insanely hot this summer, and I very much prefer the cold. 😀

  9. Whoa, what a badass! I’m so skeert!

    If we had otters here in New York, that is just what they would be like. WHATCHOOLOOKINAT? 😯

  10. I think this post needs an Impending Doom tag toute de suite!

  11. Mary (the first) says:

    But of course you can subtract at least 35 grams for the hay or straw or whatever. I always subtract at least 10 lbs. for clothes when I weigh myself. So really, he’s probably quite svelte! (p.s. @Kasia and Faye, I am enjoying cool weather here in US Northwest. I’m ready for cold and rainy! YAY)

  12. Adorableeeee. Great start to my morning x

  13. How dare you weigh me wif dees grasses…HOW DARE YOU!

  14. He’s 458 grams – of ATTITUDE!

  15. Perfecto muzzel pouch.

  16. “Welcome back, Otter!”

  17. BatBlaster says:

    But he still looks so otterly adoable…
    “Hey, I’m not cute. I’m a little ball of fur and action, You take that back (starts punching my leg)”

  18. Grump grump grump grump grump. Keep on grumpin’, lil’ guy, ’cause it is ANERABLE.

  19. Darth Otter: “Cute, I am your Otter.”

  20. @ Pyrit – You are keeling me!!! LOL

    As for weather, it’s nice and cool here in South Carolina, but it’ll be back to hot and muggy by this afternoon… So I’ll enjoy the cool while it’s here… Can you send some of that Seattle weather down here, pweeeze?

  21. Emmberrann says:

    Bebeh Otter: I otterly disapprove. You may return me to my Motter (Mother Otter). Now.

  22. Heat wave in Toronto! Take me away! By the 1st of September, it otter be cooler here than it is.

  23. Otter: if you call me fat, I’ll keel you!

    Vet: hey, you gained a whole 30g buddy!

    Otter: you asked for it *engage eye laser*

  24. Iz grouchy

  25. I wont clam up until you bring more otter sauce.

  26. Oh, now, now. Otters aren’t evil; SQUIRRELS are evil. Evil, I tell you, EVIL!

  27. I had a terribly sleepless night. Thanks for the cute-fix !

  28. @Theresa: Actually, we do have otters here in New York. They’re river otters, and they can be just as disapproving as our grouchy friend. I think they are the same species.

    Did anyone else have the urge to push the “Mode” and “Tare” buttons on that scale and get the otter’s weight in American numbers?

  29. I hope it’s feeling OK. Maybe it needs a sickottery blanket.

  30. That otter looks more disapproving than the disapprovingest of bunnehs.

  31. Get otter here with that camera….grrrrrrr

  32. “I’m not fat, I’m just retaining wotter!”

  33. Fleurdamour says:

    It’s the Illuminotter sign of the all-seeing eye.

  34. Meg, your captions are genius as always. Thanks for the laughs!

  35. Oh, bebe ottahs, the paparazzi are merciless!

  36. Looks kinda like, a grudge over troubled otter …

  37. Ahhh I see this is going to be an otterly punny day in the comments section

    @ Pyrit. as always you rule. HEheheh

  38. The Cat Foundation says:

    Oh, I’m afraid…. I’m REALLY afraid…. 😦

  39. All 458 grams of disapproval.

  40. Desperotter! Why don’t you come to your senses …

    ok I’ll stop.



  41. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    @ Elizabeth: 🙂 🙂

    (ps: Hi, Pyrit!! *waves*)

  42. go play with your brothers and sisters 🙂 maybe that will make you feel better. and if they don’t want to play with you, i will!

  43. This goes far beyond disapproval. This is pure, cold disdain, and no, he will NEVER forgive you for weighing him. 🙂

  44. OMG! good morning sea puppy!!

    Hilarious that this otter looks so disapproving now – they’re so smiley as adults!

  45. @Kathyp, I meant NYC, being typically NYC-centrically obnoxious. 😉 Or are there really river otters in NYC???!! I must see them NOW.

  46. @Pyrit: ow, ow, ow, OUCH!!!

  47. I see him as a Daniel Day-Lewis-type character. “I roll in your seaweed!”

  48. Pic 2: “I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart.”

  49. Wowsers!!! If the teeney-tineey bebbeh otter looks so disapproving right now, what’s he going to look like later on when he’s all grown up;
    (by then, the skepticsm will really have had a chance to develop) 🙄

  50. How can something be both so adorabuls and so grumbly at the same time?

    *head asplode*

  51. You can see the attitudinous family resemblance to the Voting Stoat.

  52. Cute Otterload

  53. For those of you who did not have to learn your conversions for weights and measures, 454 grams = 16 ounces = 1 pound. That means our little friend here is just over a pound–tiny! And yet, there is a huge amount of disapproval radiating from our little friend.

  54. @KittyAdventures: yep, i am fond of otterly bad puns. wait whatdoes the tare button do again? How is it different than zeroing it.
    Yep, just a lil over a pound of bad ottertude.
    where was this taken

  55. @kathyp In “American numbers” 458 grams is just a few whiskers over 1 lb.

  56. @Berg: FYI, i did not see your comment when i said that, i thought the most recent post was oakley. GET OFF MY KEYBOARD ANT

  57. I came back to look at this bite-sized morsel, and bust out laughing until I shed tears. What a farbissiner punim!

  58. Poor little otters all like, “What the hay!”

    …how does so much attitude/disapproval fit into such a tiny little fuzzball!? 🙂

  59. @O NO–I know it’s not as punny as 260O, but it was the first thing that popped into my head. 🙂

  60. Fleurdamour says:

    Wotter you want? Don’t botter me.

  61. Wait now! That reading is far from accurate! What with the hay and ‘otter’ unmentionable things that may be found between the hay and the bebbeh, not speaking of the container itself… I’d say it isn’t anymore than a relatively slim 200 grams. No wonder there is disapproval. –
    If he had a blanket instead of hay, he’d be an “otter” Garfield.

  62. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    @ Elizabeth: well, y’know, 260o needs some rest, sometimes, anyhow!! 🙂

  63. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    @ Berg:

    1) Thank you for the considerate #/crunchingks!!!
    2) ….”say hello , to my leetle freh-yund!!!:)”

  64. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    (stupid computer keyboard)

    prior comment was s’posed to end with this: 🙂

  65. PS, Apropos of nothing but my lunch: Roasted red pepper hummus. Mmmmmmmmmm!

  66. so cuteeee how can something this cute can manage to look so evil?

  67. wee

  68. Oh, he’s a grouch. An adorable grouch, but still …

  69. I just can’t handle the *scale* of disapproval! 😉

  70. Bwa! Lookit the scale, “Wedderburn”. Yeah it’s hot alright.
    This summer the Wedderburn in Minnasotter, eh?

  71. For some reason, in the first picture he reminds me of John Malkovich.

  72. @Pyrit, now cut that out, you’ll get us all in trouble!

  73. lawyergirl77 says:

    This picture is scientific proof that being weighed sucks, no matter the species.

    I feel your pain, leetle otter. I feel your pain…

    @pyrit – your comments have killed me ded. DED I tell you!!

  74. Eat lotsa clams, or you’ll get clogged otteries!

  75. Queen Zola says:

    Is it just me, or does the otter in the second pic look like he’s thinking, “Yaaarrr, be gettin’ your hands off me bootah?”

  76. aaaaaaaaaaawWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

  77. knittinkitten says:

    This leetle guy certainly has a chip on his leetle shoulder. perhaps he would like a nose beep and a treat?

  78. eek! heeem so cute!

  79. Does that scale measure in BTU’s (Blorp Tastic Units)?

  80. If I for any odd reason doubted Theresa’s NYC cred she proved it by using Yiddish! That girl she’s a mensch and a shayna maidel as well I bet! And that otter he looks mishegas!

    Not bad for a shiksa huh?

  81. I think somebody just woke him up.

  82. I saw this on fb first for once, and I was like, :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! I couldn’t even get the Ahn! out, I was so speechless.

  83. Well what zoo is this from and is that a healthy weight for his age. And what species

  84. To Lillith from another shiksa: You mean he looks meshuga (crazy). Mishagas = craziness. Meshugana = crazy person (I think that, at least technically, there’d be a different ending depending on whether said crazy person was male or female. Maybe some real Yiddish expert will weigh in on that. And any other corrections I may need.)

  85. O NO He/She/It DI-unt!!! says:

    @ Juno: …
    .”home of the Michiganah”!!! BWA HA AND HA!!! 🙂

    Wonderful wordsmithing!!

  86. BatBlaster says:

    So is it a river otter, a sea otter or what

  87. BatBlaster, maybe it’s an almam-otter.

  88. @brinnann: 😆 😆 😆

  89. Well, I must say…. I had been realllly down. I had to my house on the market today.
    But these were wonderfully funny and the laughter helped with the endorphins.

    @260oakley.. You’re on a roll. I am ahem…Otterly grateful.

  90. OMG the disapproval (plus scrunchface!)

    I am so ded.

  91. “This goes far beyond disapproval. This is pure, cold disdain”


    Loving this thread…

  92. Brinnan – Bwa ha! From the University of Minnesotter!

  93. Otters>cats!

  94. BatBlaster says:

    I otter say this, I can’t hold still okay. So thats why you are annoying me.

  95. BatBlaster – Sorry, sometimes, we get a little otter control.

    It’s Weigh In Time at Camp OtterTock and Benny Is Insulted By The Video Cameras:

    Benny Also Wonders If His Parents Got Sent to Fat Camp.

    (River Otters are extremely cute, although it is my understanding they bite like angry dogs. :sad:)
