So I was lurking around the mock go-gaia page and found an item grant link for a "moobie" (gaia's version of a hamster?)

User Image This guy.

and there's also one of those guys in the header you can click to get to the event page faster. User Image

and it got me thinking....what exactly was this creature to Gaia? was he some sort of mascot?
i always figured maybe rock puppy was the only animal type mascot on gaia but this moobie guy surprises me. i mean, i know there's that Hammy hat...but that's the only time i've seen this guy around. User Image

moobie vs rock puppy...who would win?

moobie rhymes with...?

if you were around when gaia started out, what are your recollections about this guy? what is his significance?

should we worship this little dude too? *builds a shrine*

personally i don't know much about the guy. moobie to me is gaia's version of a hamster but i could be totally wrong. i bet underneath that fur and beady black eyes is the mind of an evil genius.

who is moobie to you?

add: Behold, the origin of Moobie:
omg stfu rock puppy

i remember when i bought one haha
Lol I thought it was a cuter term for manboobs. rofl

I have no idea what this creature is...but I wonder if it can even walk with those small limbs and fat all stored up. Really.
But they should have put a rabbit. Rabbits are a billion times cuter .And still more original than cats emotion_awesome .

All I know about him and rock puppy is that they make some pretty bad MC's.

It means our place of origin, and how far we've come.

Yes, I'm basing this entirely on this Monty Python quote and the anniversary.

awww cute. fatty animal limbs are so cute. rabbits are cool but hamsters are cooler. i always wanted to get one, but then i read stories that some hamsters sometimes eat their own babies and that killed it for me.

I never knew the little guy had a name, always saw him around the site in one form or another but didn't question it at all.
