    I had no idea Odie’s first name was Mike and that the “Odie” came from his last name. Funny. Much like people think my name is actually Mango.

  • JakeDurling

    If I send in an application as Michael “Odie” Oetken, can we make Odie stay?

  • Killer

    Not happy about this Odie! It will be a different place without you. :(
    And my first name really is Killer.
