Weekly What the Heck

Welcome to the fourth installment of my regular feature here at the Near TPK. With continuing apologies to one of my favorite blogs, the Daily WTF, I present... The Weekly What The Heck.

Each Saturday at 10 AM Central Time I'll post one of Jen's drawings of some kind of whacked-out creature, and ask my readers: "What the heck IS that?"

I hope my readers will approach the challenge in the spirit of "Yes, and ..." - building on previous responses so everyone's ideas can be used in the final writeup. Comments are now closed on last week's entry, and I hope to have the final writeup posted tonight. Comments will be accepted on this week's entry until I post next week's entry.

So... What the heck is that? What should it do? Why do its teeth point in opposite directions?

The teeth point in different directions because inside that innocent looking mouth is a swirling maw of toothy pain...it is rumored that this creature inspired the creation of the modern-day blender...

Its wings are vestigial; it travels by making huge, loping leaps with its powerful legs.

The creature is an attempt at Beholders to create a guardian for their lairs that looks like them, and caters to their self-aggrandizing vanity. The legs were a late addition, after attempts to make it fly failed.

Is a vegetable based life-form.
