Charlie the Tortoise from Petropolis in Chesterfield appeared on Fox 2 this past Friday, reprising his Superbowl Pick from earlier in the week. Norm McDonald (SNL), famous comedian and actor, was in the studio to help explain the natural instinct of a giant tortoise, and their ability to choose Super Bowl Winners. This is a must see!
Referring to Charlie the Tortoise, Norm said “I was in town… specifically to see [a giant tortoise]. I went to the tortoise store, but they were all regular sized tortoises…” Tim Ezel asked him if the giant tortoise on the floor, in front of them, was big enough – and Norm jumped and said, “What The!? Good Lord…” Tim told Norm that Charlie was going to pick a Super Bowl 44 winner, and Norm replied “Actually, most giant tortoises can do that. That is what they’re known for. They’re known for a couple of things… they’re herbavores, and they’re very good handicappers.

This was a great segment, and Norm had a great stand-up show. I went to see it on Friday night, and had a great time. Norm is funnier than ever, and had the whole crowd laughing non-stop! If you ever get a chance to see him, don’t miss it! You will not regret it.
