Happy Otter Juggles Rocks In Excitement

December 13, 2017

This is a video from the Adelaide Zoo in South Australia of an Asian small-clawed otter happily jugging some rocks on its belly, complete with running zoogoer commentary. Personally, I thought he was trying to solve a primitive Rubik's Cube. In the videographer's own words:

In the wild, otters smash stones against the hard shells of their food to break it open. As it was nearly mealtime when I shot this it is quite possible this little fellow was showing his excitement!

Getting excited about mealtime -- now that's something I can relate to. My whole day kind of revolves around eating and working, then sleeping poorly and waking up tired to do it all over again. "That's called life." But am I really living? "Absolutely not." Cool, just checking.

Keep going for the video while I look at fast food menus online.

Thanks to Lisa D, who informed me 'happier than an otter juggling rocks' is the new 'happier than a pig in slop.' Good to know, I added a phone alert so it reminds me every day.

    "I'm as happy as an otter juggling rocks." I wonder if we can make that into a saying?

  • Bling Nye

    I imagine that's how I'd spend a lot of my time if I were a woman with boobs, if that were a woman with boobs instead of an otter with rocks.

  • Quite a few men I know do something similar with their testicles.

  • Bling Nye

    Oh, we all do, practically all the time.

    Since we're trying to coin phrases I'd like to replace the "double-edged sword" with "double ended dildo"... Because a double edged sword is double edged to improve stabbing and you can't use both edges at the same time. But with a double ended dildo, both ends get fucked.

  • Meh

    If only these beasts weren't so vicious. They are super cute though, imagine having one and taking a bath together (a non biting one that is).

    Candles, a little wine, see where the night takes you.

    Why have otters not been massively domesticated as pets yet???

    Then stop kissing them on the mouth.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    Because they are vicious, sadistic, cute little monsters?

  • Bling Nye
  • MustacheHam

    So are cats...and human children. Seems okay.

  • Bling Nye

    Cats, that I'm aware of, haven't raped a dog to death.

    Human children though, definitely capable of vicious sadism. They're humans after all.

  • Megatron Jenkins

    I've never heard of a human child raping a dog to death, what part of the world do YOU live in?

  • Frédéric Purenne

    Humans babies and children are CERTAINLY not cute.
