Tanuki

This little guy is both a real Japanese animal as well as a mythical character.  He is most often seen with a bottle of sake in one hand and an unpaid bill in the other. Individuals of the breed can be recognized by their personal trait of being well endowed in the family jewels department with ginormousbigjigglyballs, which he was known for drumming on merrily.

Ever play Super Mario 3?  That's the same thing, minus the primary identifying feature(s).  

I am recruiting him as a symbol of the those who must keep their spirits up and trying hard, like the brave (if impetuous) Tanuki, who perseveres through inane and pointless hardship, to keep beating himself in the nuts, despite the tears.
