Screenshot a Day – 9

As part of Tycertank’s screenshot challenge, we’ve been tasked with posting a screenshot a day based on a series of predefined topics spanning the entire month of August.

Day 9: 2 o’clock

Ferdinand

Siesta time

I wasn’t quite sure what to do for this one until the image of Ferdinand popped into my head. As one of the rares in the Jade Forest, he always looks so calm and peaceful relaxing under one of two trees around the Arboretum. In fact, my rare tracker goes off pretty often as I pass though the area so I always check to see whether he’s still alive or not. I’m happy to say that he generally is, which puts a smile on my face. However, I will admit I didn’t really know what his game reference was until I saw the Blind Side. A great movie by the way.

Now it’s been a while since I’ve been in combat with him (for the achievement) but he supposedly says:

Gonna bash you into pretty flower food!

You tell ’em Ferdinand!

  1. You haven’t heard the story of Ferdinand the bull? It’s a children’s book about the bull Ferdinand who would rather smell the flowers than fight in bullfights. Disney made a short film of it which is part of the annual Disney christmas show To All of You From All of Us which. It’s been on TV every christmas eve as long as I can remember (in Norway, Sweden and Denmark) :P

    • Since then I’ve heard the basic story and I was tempted to buy the book for my niece but I didn’t know there was a short film about it.

      I’ll have to catch the film sometime. :P

  3. It’s nice that now that people have done the achievement Ferdinand is getting a chance to smell flowers instead of laying there dead, poor guy.

  4. Yea I remember the Disney Ferdinand, as a kid dad even named our calf after him. Makes me sad though – we had to calf to butcher eventually :( I try not to kill him in game either :)
