TBT: Woody...

Nathan brought this to me the other day. I had no idea he had it. He wanted me to have it back because he knew it was mine when I was a kid. 

It’s my old Woody Woodpecker plush toy!

When I was young, I couldn’t pronounce “Woody Woodpecker,” and I supposedly used the alternate pronunciation of “OOOOH-knee COCK-err.” I have no idea how that’s even close.

Ah, Woody. Good times.

You were given Ooohneekocker when you were in the hospital for the repair of a lingual hernia (undescended testicle). You latched on to that little guy for years!

I thought it was just a standard hernia operation. Who knew?
