I’ve only had one brief conversation about Tom Otterness irl. It ended like this, “wasn’t he that idiot that bought and shot a dog?” Also, somebody needs to start exploiting the available images from!

Deja vu re: Otterness. The last time I saw him mentioned was in another of your links posts, and it was basically the same story.

Also why are you making me relive the horror of bearforce 1?
