New Spirit Animal

After seeing this amazing photograph, it is official: My spirit animal is no longer the pink fairy armadillo. It is the narwhal. No doubt about it.


Narwhals are as fantastical as unicorns, except they are real. They have a gigantic sword tooth protruding from a hole in their lip. They are carnivorous. After feasting on their neighbors, they have sword fights with each other. Also, they are quite handsome, for being whales.

  2. narwhals are so obviously the cool animal. plus their horns washed up on beaches apparently inspired people to believe in unicorns. no joke!

    ps we went to depeche mode bar tonight, possibly for the last time. that place... what a sad tale. we will find some where new for you.

    which is to say, we really ENJOYED THE SILENCE, har har har.
