THAT is a serious case of BEF, Brinke and photo-taker extraordinaire Heribert P. ;)


[it's PUFF!  MuzzlePUFF! ...why u do dis?? - Ed.]

Look. [nervous laugh] You got it all wrong.

Look, I hear you, OK?

You read this silly website, and you’re convinced that all otters are evil, right?

So called...

You’ve heard that we lie on our backs in the water all day, hatching ridiculous [holds paws up, does invisible quote marks] "evil" schemes, pretending we’re friends, etc. Right? [Scratches head in disbelief]

I can't believe we're even having this conversation

[Sighs] I don’t know what to tell you. It’s simply [wipes eye nervously] not true.

You feel me on this?

All right? Otters are not always making evil plans—that’s… ridiculous!

Look, I’m glad we’re on the same page here. [Paws behind head in 'we're done' motion]

[clapping hands together in 'finished!' motion]

I got shells to crack and really don’t want to try and convince you again, Erin E.
