Jake Dowd was getting ready to start a fire at his home in West Yorkshire when he happened to notice the face of E.T. staring at him from the base of a log. Lucky for us, he decided not to burn the extra terrestrial wood, and instead, shared it with the world on the internets! We wonder if the log let out a groaning, "Ooouuch..." as it was first set on the fire. Probably.
E.T. the walrus was a starving orphan pup when he was discovered by Prudhoe Bay oil workers in 1982. Tacoma's Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium decided to adopt him, naming him E.T. because of a certain resemblance to the early '80s movie star.
E.T., who now weighs about 3,500 pounds, just celebrated his 30th birthday.
