Hamsteren!

Today I met this jolly fellow and had a little talk with him.
Dutch followers of my blog will recognise this huge hamster and also the the title of this blog post. This huge hamster is the mascot of a large chain of supermarkets over here. Hamsters are also called hamsters in dutch. 'Hamsteren' is a word that means to hoard lots of food, like hamsters do too.

A pig not as cool as a hamster?! I must strongly disagree I'm afraid ;-)

I do agree with the Ronals McDonald comment: clowns are scary...
