ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
must have t-shirt. please someone make t-shirt…..
that is obviously a beaver.
how could you confuse one of the world most industrious mammals and oregon state mascot with an internet protocol?
No… no explanation needed.
Don’t forget about the “poison barbs”… by my count that makes it either 1/3 spider or snake.
This wins for the best thing I’ve seen today.
Platypi are awesome. Keytars are awesome. Figures!
I think you mean platypodes. Or at least platypuses.
Does this mean that I can get this on a T-shirt? I can’t quite figure it out…
The Platypus has always been a musical animal. Here’s one that sings
If this isn’t already the new Oregon state flag, it should be.
If that was the Oregon state flag that would somehow link me to the ducks and that I can not abide.
Suddenly it all makes sense.
Love the image, but I feel that Richard Dawkins might disapprove. He wouldn’t want people to confuse the platypus with the evolutionary principle of a “common ancestor” that links ducks and gophers(is it a gopher? I’m an ignorant Australian!), with the pure mash-up genius of the keytar. Another reason to buy the t-shirt!
Good lord, man, that’s a beaver, not a gopher! You can tell by the broad, flat tail, the socialized medicine, and the fact that he’s playing a Tom Sawyer/New Orleans is Sinking/If I Had $1000000 medley.
Awesome! I especially approve of the Rush reference.
and, if you’re not canadian, then you rock even harder for posting this oh so canadian comment.
Love the image, but I feel that Richard Dawkins might disapprove. He wouldn’t want people to confuse the platypus with the evolutionary principle of a “common ancestor” …
Are you suggesting that the keytar is a common ancestor of both guitars and electronic keyboards?
Well sure, the keytar is obviously the common ancestor of both guitars and keyboards, Spore!
Keytars are the final instar of the offspring of an accordion and a ukulele (which are of course true primordial musical instrument forms). Keytars rarely breed true, so half their offspring are keyboards and half are guitars. Keyboards are mostly sterile, with the occasional exception producing harpsichords and glockenspiels, but guitars are prolific and randy little devils.
