    Eric has become so popular, that his owner Sharon Curle decided to make a Facebook page dedicated to him. It now has almost 10,000 members, where people can watch a number of videos of Eric and his foul mouth.

    Yep, he's fast becoming an Aussie legend.

    Speaking to BuzzFeed News, Eric's owner, Sharon, said that Eric picked up the swearing from her husband who is an avid Carlton supporter. Since the Blues aren't performing too well this season, there has been a lot of swearing at the TV.

    However, Sharon says that the times where Eric refers to himself as a "fucking legend", has come from her son, who is a North Melbourne supporter.
