This is a tardigrade, also known as a”water bear” or “moss piglet.” It is probably the coolest fucking microscopic life form that you’ve never heard of. Besides looking like miniature, animatronic gummy bears, tardigrades can live at temperatures close to absolute zero. Before you Google what absolute zero is, it’s -459.67 degrees Fahrenheit (lol no parenthetical Celsius conversion for the rest of the world haha). That’s pretty fucking cold. Anyways, tardigrades are tiny little living things that eat shit inside of mosses and whatnot. They can survive in any environment (including outer space), are able to go without water for up to 10 years, and are like a million bajillion years old (they originated in the Cretaceous period for you kids that understand whatever that means).
AND BAM! this drawing is suddenly relevant again.
I was talking to my sister today about POKEDDEX, and I asked her what fighting-type pokemon was her favorite, and she told me she liked Timburr/Gurdurr best.
She even named it “Irnbru” after Barr’s iron-enriched drink, which has been an ongoing joke between us, due to the motto of old Irn Bru advertisments.
So I slapped this together just for fun, even though I already posted my favorite today.
*Oh, and I’d just like to say Hi to anyone from Scotland who’s participating in POKEDDEX*
The old design for GLaDOS is what I used here.
You know, it’s odd, but I haven’t actually seen this particular joke on the internet yet. (mind you, I haven’t been actively looking for it either)
That episode, from way back in 2005. All I could think of was the dalek inhaling the internet for breakfast.
I’ve discovered that biking downhill is almost as good a skiing downhill (incidentally, biking uphill is just as much effort as climbing uphill on skis).
And if I remember correctly, the vikings came up with skiing, so there! Either way, I feel like a viking when I’m speeding downhill.
Yes, I believe a viking would have streamers on his handlebars.

What does Psyduck say when it’s told to swab the deck?
