Tiny Narwhal

I’ve had unicorns on the brain lately, and that inevitably led to knitting a tiny narwhal this week!


Let’s have a tiny narwhal caption contest! Of course my question has to be be: what does he use that awesome horn for??

Leave your answer in the comments (one per person), and we’ll choose our favorite on Monday to win…

  1. If you mistake me for a tiny whale
    with my horn I will impale
    and you’ll turn quite pale

  2. Reginald used to have it all. Mansion on a hill, super model wife, three and a half kids, and a six figure salary. Then on one dark and stormy evening, Reginald was cursed by an evil gypsy chihuahua. He was turned into a small fibrous narwhal, and lost everything to his name. He has a deathly fear of water, as he believes he will felt. Now he wanders the streets looking for a pretty lady, half a kid, and six stalks of celery. He has begun performing on the streets, a pitiful profession. He uses his horn to joust, knit, swordfight, hold coats, and be a lady’s jewelry stand. This is, of course, to get closer to his dreams of what he used to have. Sadly, last month he proposed to a beautiful damsel, and she ran away screaming. He spent the last month holed up (literally) in a dirty hovel, knitting half sweaters, gowns, celery cozies, (six of them) and other miscellany. Reginald needs mental help, and a pretty lady. Or a celery patch. And to live in a desert. Please give Reginald a hand if you ever see him, and drop some coins into his hat. He dances in a top hat and monicle!

  3. Gnarly the Narwhal always came first in the undersea fencing tournaments. He owned all the silverware it was possible to win, but all he ever wanted was a congratulatory hug.

  4. I made a wee narwhal for my kids’ advent Mini-stockings last Christmas-yours is cuter :)
    And my kids will tell you that, although it is a little known fact, narwhal horns are without a doubt, the source of all candy canes.

  5. To skewer the bacon of course! Well, “the most broadly accepted theory for the role of the tusk is as a secondary sexual characteristic, similar to the mane of a lion or the tail feathers of a peacock. … and for braking sea ice in their Arctic habitat.” info taken from wikipedia.

  6. I use my horn to rescue penguins,
    Stranded on the ice.
    I break right through
    And lead them home
    To all their penguin wives!

  13. I have to point out that Wikipedia is wrong about narwhals. The tusk is actually a tooth. True story. A dentist figured it out. It’s the left front tooth and it’s super sensitive and narwhals can use it to determine water temperature and salinity and it helps them navigate the ocean and find food.

    Who has a tiny horn.

    But no matter what they say,
    His trusty horn will lead him home
    No matter where he strays!
