Tropeworthy? Motion To Discard
Walruses, they are one of the most majestic sea animals in the animal kingdom. The reason for this is because walruses' vibrissae look a lot like big bushy mustaches you'd expect to see on experienced, middle-aged men. In nearly every form of media, walruses are sometimes depicted as a distinguished but somewhat foolish gentleman, mainly because of their silly yet physically formidable appearance. Sometimes, in media, you can even expect to see them partnered up with penguins. Not to be confused with: The Walrus Was Paul
