Oooh, can we extend this Freudian analysis to avatars? :evilgrin:


I suppose, but what does the penguin represent? (And does it have anything to do with the gay penguins in the zoos everyone's always on about?) Otherwise, your avvie says that you are a chemist, quite right I do believe.

(Before anything about crabs is mentioned, I would like to point out that Zoidberg is much more like a lobster!)

Well, your avatar suggests you don't fit in with your adopted country, you like sandals and sardines and you pretend to be a doctor. Am I close? (apart from the doctor thing, that was just silly).

Ze pengvin represents my use of free software and my strokable head. Apparently my hair feels like a squirrel's. No, I have no idea how anyone came by that knowledge either.

Also, if I hadn't lost the picture my banana would be back. I may have to redo it.

Adopted country, check.
Sandals, check. (Though not of the Jesus variety)
Sarnines, nar!
Doctoring when I shouldn't be? Check.
if you count yelling "swine flu!" as often as possible as doctoring
3 out of 4, not too shabby.

Perhaps they were referring to the squirrel that is often found in paint brushes? Or they have a hypnotic effect on animals...

No, black and white and red all over. You're a newspaper (since DB is obviously the sunburnt penguin).

Black Bart obviously has much internal conflict and shifting personality since he frequently messes with avatar (at least he used to, I don't know how much of that he does now.)

I belive I have mentioned demon kitty on the epic roleplaying battle thread, but that was quite some time ago.
I think three different pictures went into creating this, it's blurry because one of those pictures was blurry and I had to make this stuff match.
