    That’s a load of old pony.

    Those arms just don’t fit with the rest of his body.

    What’s Asymmetry Girl looking at? Has someone shown up to fix the Chrysler? Or is it just a few girl scouts with marshmallows?

    Dude is rockin’ those mom jeans.

    @Tat – The logo on the grille tells me that’s a Burning Benz

    The wolf on the right looks like it got smacked in the face with a cinderblock and has been a little bit silly every since.

    I’ve never been a fan of blood opera.

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    @Raoul: sorry, I couldn’t see the Merc for the murk.

    @Tor: He looks more of a free jazz aficionado.

    @fred—that neck doesn’t go with that head either.

    @Tor M—GSS! I once had a cat, sweetest thing, who slid uncontrollably across a hardwood floor at full speed chasing a toy and smacked head-first into the baseboard. She spent the rest of her long life with that same expression on her face. 😉

    @BC: Cute story! 🙂

    Methinks that guy is just a little too happy that he escaped the burning Schnorsedes. Maybe he torched it for the insurance money to feed the woles and Asymmetric Woman….

    If that title was written on a piece of cardboard, this would be a public protest scene.

    Or the movie , ‘Say Anthying’.

    Ponytail guy: “Werewolves rule! Vampires drool! Whooo!”

    Gothic Chick: “Most guys don’t respond by setting the car on fire when their girlfriend suggests they go meet her parents, _Chris_.”

    So a major publisher put this out decades ago for a well-known author, and still it looks like something on a self-published book from a recent year. Except for his hairdon’t

    Ponytail guy’s body language doesn’t match the look on his face, particularly around the eyes. However, said look is appropriate for someone who’s just ruined an expensive German car. And has odd body proportions.

    Is Asymmetric Woman, in fact, a woman? Or a mannequin? I guess we’d find out if the wind shifts and she catches on fire and melts.

    @BC: Poor kitty but I guess she didn’t suffer from it. I knew a cat who fell and hit her head once, and forever after, she had one blown pupil. No other damage.

    The YMCA sing-a-long was a disappointment.

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @ARY: Well, of course it was. A car fire and a couple of deadly predators don’t say “fun sing-along experience” to most anyone.

    And Asymmetric Woman’s too busy looking at the burning. Maybe it was her car and she’s in no mood to have campy disco fun.

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @GSSxn—Same with my cat. In fact, she became a sort of idiot savant, able to figure out complex things like opening cupboards, but unable, often, to tell if she was inside the house or outside.

  19. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @BC: Sadly, even before the accident, that kitty was minus the “savant” part. Stupidest cat I’ve ever met, but such a sweetie and beautiful. She didn’t need brains. But I like the story of your Rain Cat.

    @Ray P: It does have that music video look to it, doesn’t it?
