    That’s a Mogwai, a fictional creature from the 80’s movie gremlins. You’re not supposed to get them wet or they multiply, and chaos eventually ensues. And they become evil gremlins if you feed them after midnight. So it’s a Vague 80’s pop culture reference alluding to the crazyness of the year 2020. Well, only vague if you’ve never seen gremlins...

    You shouldn't put water on Mogwais.
    Gremlins pop out of them.

    Kind of a "I give up, lets just blow it up " message.

    There is a movie (hoaky horror IMHO) Gremlins. The "Gremlins" were the monster if you will. They were multiplied by getting wet as I recall.
    The stuffed animal is a gremlin about to be put under the faucet presumably to get wet and multiply many times.
    Hope this helps.
    Peace,
    Jim

    Mogwai is also the name of a great band from Glasgow, Scotland.

    It's a curse, you have to forward it to 20 of your contacts or Bloody Mary will crawl from under your bed at midnight

    I’d like a few hundred of them. So I could start an AMC Gremlin Demolition Polo League. It’s a bucket list thing.
