Patrick the Wombat

Patrick the Wombat has turned 29, which is pretty old for a wombat, I guess.

I will admit that before today I had never heard of Patrick and I could not have told you with any accuracy what a wombat looked like.

But look at the size of this wombat.

Here's some video of Patrick, doing his thing in his wheelbarrow. One of the talking heads calls him "one peaced-out wombat."

More pictures of Patrick here. And his Facebook page.

It just makes me feel good to know that Patrick is out there, eating carrots and being huge.

Bonus: A wombat joey.


He looks very satisfied with himself!  What a player!
