“How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?” As kids, we learn to say all sorts of silly sayings like these. Maybe they help us with our diction, or they help relieve boredom. Who the heck knows? Alas, like with many things in kid-dom, this tongue twister holds no water, bears no fruit, et cetera and so forth.
Woodchucks may have the words ‘wood’ and ‘chuck’ in their name, but unlike beavers, they don’t gnaw on trees to make their homes, nor do they play cricket. We suppose a woodchuck immigrating to England might chuck wood, but that’s a bit of a stretch. And what about time traveling groundhogs? Bill Murray knows all about that. What? You’ve never seen Groundhog Day? Maybe it’s not a specific example of time travel, though Bill does relive the same day over and over again until he gets it right. If you were a woodchuck (or a groundhog, which is technically the same thing by a different name), that might get boring. Eat leaves, berries, whatever else you can find, dig a burrow, get fat for winter. Rinse, repeat. Oh wait…we’ve been informed that they do that already.
You might be wondering what all this has to do with Douglas’ own plushie Chuckwood. Not a whole lot, since like the real thing, he can’t see his shadow or manipulate Bill Murray’s life. But this pint-sized bruiser (okay, so he only actually ‘looks’ fierce, because of his big bushy coat) is as adorable as you could want. And coming from Douglas, you know this 11-inch tall plush animal will be as snuggly as he is memorable.
