Just Because

Can we just talk for a second about how weird platypuses (platypi?) are? They are SO weird.

A team of scientists is doing some serious research into the genetic make-up of the duck-billed platypus, figuring out just what makes this creature a freaky mammalian-reptilian specimen.

That's all well and good, but I personally like Disney's take on the creature: Perry the Platypus, international figure of espionage who makes the best sound an animal can make. Compare with the orange player below--it's scarily accurate.
