Top 10 Wildest Animal Patches (A Tribute to My Brother) by Christian

 Introducing my brother: the platypus enthusiast

My brother’s idea of a relaxing time is building his own bonfire in the woods and howling at the moon. He is a bushwhacking, mud-flinging, cock-a-doodle-dooing wildman, who spends as much time in the great outdoors as possible. And he’s so crazy about animals that he is one! For a good while he had been fixed on the Japanese spider crab, until recently, when he found is new obsession of the week: the platypus. “They’re cute AND dangerous,” he raves, “With poisonous quills on their feet, almost like chicken spurs, you’ve gotta be careful!” He took out a matching pair of embroidered iron-on platypus patches, one for him and one for his son (my nephew). “Whoever designed the patch didn’t do much research. It seems to be lacking a tail, and its bill is three times too long.”
I dedicate this blog post to my brother. For his love of nature and wildlife, and for finding “a patch of common ground”.

The top 10 wildest animal patches:

#10 – “My Brother’s Prized Position” – Despite the unrealistic bill and missing tail, my brother agrees that platypuses do play a lot of baseball.

#9 – “Wolf Head” – I’d stay away from any human with this patch on their jacket, not to mention any wolf with a human head patched on.

#8 – “Eat Shoots First, Ask Questions Later” – Panda’s been on the endangered list for just one day too long.
