All hail the hodag

Brandi Allen | Wednesday, October 14, 2009

Dear people who make the mythical creatures bracket:

Seriously? You had the werewolf beating the hodag? There wasn’t even a full moon. The last full moon was Oct. 4, prior to that matchup. Get your facts straight. Which means that the hodag, the incredibly cunning little beast that does in fact roam the woods of Northern Wisconsin, would’ve just been fighting some guy. And I’m pretty sure that some random dude would lose to a stealthy creature with claws and a spiky dinosaur tail, not to mention tusks.

You guys obviously do not understand the majesty that is the hodag. Tell me, is there a radio station named after the werewolf? A festival? Do werewolves have commercials talking about how awesome they are? Let me think … no. They don’t. And what does? Oh, that’s right, a hodag. And saying it shames the entire state of Wisconsin? Really? At least we Wisconsinites don’t play Duck, Duck, Grey Duck.
