About Otto

October 5, 2012

I think I’ve mentioned my 30th birthday a few times, but I haven’t reported the thing that crowned my party.

When most of the guests had arrived, I was given a short speech, in which it was assumed (correctly) that if there ever was a zombie apocalypse, I had a weapon of choice. I was asked to go get said weapon – a clawhammer – which I did. I was then blindfolded and spun around repeatedly, and the blindfold was removed.

I met Otto, who I proceeded to batter to further death with my hammer, for this here is Otto:

Yes, my amazing friends had built me a zombie piñata. After some spirited hammering, I was rewarded with a shower of money, candy and other assorted gifts. I just couldn’t stop laughing, it was insanely awesome.

I promised I’d give due credit to not only those who conceived the idea, but also the actual builders, Satu and Taape, so here are the two artisans (who luckily documented Otto’s creation) in their glory:

Trivia: Otto was named after the lead character from the staggeringly horrible zombie/gay porn flick Otto, or up with dead people.

As proof of my zombie slaying expertise, here’s Otto in his current state:

At the risk of sounding sappy: I love my friends, thanks everyone.
