The Greatest Christmas Picture Ever?

December 16, 2010

I've already switched my Facebook profile picture to reflect my esteemed opinion of this photo. I don't know how they could make this better or more Christmas Card worthy. Maybe put a Santa Hat on the walrus? A Christmas tree in the background? Mistletoe over his head?

I don't know, but I applaud the people who did this. It's comedy gold. It works on so many levels. It's genius.

Okay, it's a walrus eating the hell out of some cake in the shape of a Christmas tree. I think it's made funnier by a) it being a walrus, an animal with a name just as silly as its appearance and b) the fact that the walrus has no thumbs, and therefore must dive face-first into his snack.

How I long to be the walrus...

If I had time, I'd print this out and slap a Merry Christmas on it and send it out as a Christmas card. At the very least, it's a helluva lot better than a cartoon drawing of a puma fist pumping his excitement over my birthday.

Screw the snowy chapel picture, Saint Joe. Next year, I want funny walrus pictures in my electronic in-box.

Or, better yet, funny walrus movies...

Maybe you can get those cards printed out while enjoying some Extreme Walrus Juice?

Hey, is that Adam Lambert leaving comments on your blog?

Wilford the Walrus says 'Eat cake, it's the right thing to do.'

At first glance I thought that was Jamie Hyneman from Mythbusters eating cake.

@ Beckeye: As perfidious as this sounds, no, Adam L. is much more awesome than Adam Lambert.

@ Eric: Wilford is a wise, wise walrus. We should all listen to his...whatever noise a walrus makes.

@ SkyDad: The lack of beret is the only thing that prevented me from making the same mistake.

What, you don't dive head first into your snacks? I thought everyone did.

@ BigSis: My wife is a Suthun Lady, and she has curbed--often violently, I might add--my habit of sticking my face into a place of cake and eating my way out of it.
