Godspeed, Chompy

On this beautiful summer day, let us pause for a moment to give thanks for the time we had with Chompy, who quietly returned this weekend to the mysterious land of giant inflatable animals from whence he came. I think it is fair to say that during his all-to-brief return visit this year, we were all touched by the fin of Chompie in one way or another.


Let us pray that an appearance by Chompy does not remain a quadrennial event, and that Discovery won't instead opt to have an inflatable Sarah Palin protruding from their headquarters for their next promotion.

Flashback: "Smile, You Son of a Bitch"

UPDATE: Beyond DC points out that Chompy still lives in Google Maps.

I thought you would be pleased to know that while our family informally refers to him as "Chompie," my son has made it clear that Chompie is just a nickname and his real name is "Sir Chomps-a-lot"

They should make action figures.
