Nyac the otter has passed away, you guys. He’s most famous for holding hands with another otter, Milo, and floating around. Although, as a survivor of the Exxon Valdez oil spill, he should probably be most famous for that. Being most famous for holding hands with another otter when you are a survivor of the Exxon Valdez oil spill is like being famous for eating ice cream after surviving the Holocaust, at least in the otter community. SAME DIFF. In any case, here is a tribute to the brave otter Nyac, who succumbed to chronic lymphocytic leukemia yesterday, which is a thing I did not know otters could succumb to.
Goodbye, sweet Nyac. You’re up in otter heaven now, holding hands with the angels and floating around.
