A bill to make the giant beaver the state fossil was introduced in the 1988 legislature, but it failed to pass.

Let me pass along some advice that my dad gave me, legislators: stop holding out for a smaller beaver, take what you get when you can get it.  They're all going to seem huge to you, given your shortcomings.

/that last bit may just apply to me, but who knows?

Ohio's state fossil is Mike DeWine.

Finally a mom joke that is kinda accurate. My mom was a rather large woman and she's been dead for quite a long time now. Not sure about fossilized. But certainly dead.

Larry enters the drug store and is r loved to see it's empty.  Just him and the man behind the counter.  "What can I get you," asks the man behind the counter.
I want a beaver.
Modern or prehistoric?
Prehistoric
Massive or normal?
Massive
Hairy or shaved?
Hairy
DO WE HAVE ANY PREHISTORIC MASSIVE HAIRY BEAVERS?

As much as everyone appreciates beaver jokes, I would be remiss not to mention that Castoroides was not a close relative of the modern beaver.

It may have been a giant beaver, but, was it a tight beaver?

Minnesota does have a Fleet Week.  It ended about two weeks ago.  Headline checks out.
 
2021-10-26 7:47:29 PM  
And there are a lot of moms out there who would be offended at being called prehistoric.

The beaver is soon to be endangered and rarely seen in Texas too.

Considering Metasequoia is alive and well in cities throughout the world after having been discovered alive in China during WW2, it really does come alive.

/Several within a few blocks of where I live
//Nice foliage
