Only the Canadians dare name things after the mighty beaver anymore. The Americans have corrupted the name. I remember telling an American friend, when I was a teenager, that it was our national animal, and showing him the nickel to prove it. He wouldn't tell me why he was laughing so hard, and it took me years to discover why.

The Hep Cat is all yours.
