People, you must stop what you’re doing and watch this. Here’s this dude living in Finland, lotsa your standard snow and ice and, um, AN OTTER LIVING IN HIS FRONT YARD. There’s a little hole in the ice snow ground and Iivari The Otter just pops right up.

Aaand, this is when Cute Overload becomes Cute Ovarysplode. Fine. Best to just go with it. Resistance is futile.

We Pick Eddie the Otter to Win!

Don’t look now but March Madness is starting early! OK, suffice it to say, I don’t even know what March Madness is except it has a basketball and a hoop. Does it involve otters? Because Eddie the Otter is a Hoophead!

“He can swim with the ball, take aim and even do slam dunks – and rarely misses a shot.”

To top it all off, Eddie the otter is 16 years old! That is the Golden Age for otters. Ever since being rescued off the California coast as an abandoned pup, Eddie has been taken care of at the The Oregon Zoo. Training Eddie to play basketball is more than fun, it is helping Eddie exercise away the otter-itis in his otter elbows.

Eddie’s starting a March Madness office “pool”. You in?
