Hi all.

I love AW, in particular, the Avatars you crazy wacky wasks come up with.

So, in that vein, I am hosting a contest for who has the funniest Avatar. So rifle through your pics, grab your favorite avatar, and reply in this thread. Or, send a message to a friend who has a funny Avatar and have them reply to this thread.

Based on the results, I will tally up a top 6 list, then hold a poll to see who is the winner.

The winner will get One Million Dollars*.

Let the fun begin.

Mel...

*Dollars are in Mel dollars, redeemable only at AW in the form of one critique whenever you need it.

I've been asked if that image could be used to promote erectile dysfunction medication, so in that sense, it's hilarious.

It really is funny how many times something similar has been pointed out to me. Even when I make an innocent reference to something long and hard and thick, up pops a rep comment with comments like, "LOL! With an avatar like that, of course you'd know about such things."

For the longest time, I had no idea what people were talking about.

It was so hard for me to figure out that I felt thick, as if a throbbing vein were impeding the blood flow to my head.

Then finally, I understood what it all meant: Jumping fish equates to male anatomy! You could've slapped me with a tuna, and I wouldn't have been more surprised by that realization.

What piece of work is a man! how noble in reason!
how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how
express and admirable! in motion how like an angel!
in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the
world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me,
what is this quintessence of dust? man delights not
me: no, nor woman neither, though by your smiling

So your Smexy Time Camel is named Humphrey?

You know which one I REALLY miss, Scarlet, it's the one of your mouse. Did you do that pic yourself? Really creative use of ordinary elements. It deserves some art award. I don't think it lasted 24 hours, I regret not saving it the moment I saw it, and I kinda suspect you were 'asked' to remove it. But I thought it was great. Do you still have it? I'd love to get a copy in a PM. I'd give you rep points 4ever.

That makes two of us. And the image was originally selected with such innocence that's it's pretty strange to see it reach such phallic proportions.

It's really just a fish, though, a shot I took myself with no ulterior motives other than to capture a difficult scene that lasts less than a second or two.

It even comes with a story ... a friend was giving a presentation to an important person. For a little levity, he inserted a slide with that ostrich photo on it at the end of the presentation. Next thing I know, he's in a panic, trying to remove that slide. Seems he got hold of a picture of the person he was presenting to, and the fellow looked an awful lot like an ostrich!

I liked Chaos Titans' "typing puppet" avatar better. The one that looks like the pre-eat-after-midnight gremlin.

But alas, we'll use the freaky looking lizard cat. BTW Is that a real cat?

I think it's a cat. ;) I can change my pic to the gremlin kitty, if you'd prefer....told you I had a hard time deciding.

Oh, c'mon, I gotta PICK? :D

I like the one at the desk, I think. Close second is the top one with the sword, though.

I lurves that episode...some of Whedon's funniest stuff, imo.

Joss is brilliant. I wanna be him when I grow up. :D No one else can turn a vampire into a puppet and make it both hilarious and poignant.
