    What's wrong? Also, Ice VI is the most common form of solidified water on the planet, which the winter season is characterized throughout the free world.

    :rofl: That's exactly the first thing that came to my mind too when I saw them...chromosomes! :rofl: I wonder how much they paid an artist to come up with those characters? But, hey, it takes guts to call a stick figure a mascot! :biggrin:

    These figures were not created by a child ?

    Would you like a nuke, firebomb or just plain old saturation bombing? $10 million apiece, in cash with half up front.

    Nope, apparently the creator is a 38-yr old. I wonder what the other entries looked like if this was the winner of the competition? (I hadn't followed the link before to see that it was a competition.)

    If it was a contest among school children, I'd understand and consider it more sweet than lame, but since it was not done by children...:rolleyes:

    how can we be certain that you actually can execute this job ? What are your credentials ?

    Well...as for credentials you'll have to take my word for it. They revoked my security clearence after I used a nuclear warhead to keep my pizza warm. As such I no longer have acess to the necessary documents to prove it. Trust me, Torino will burn if you pay me the $10 million :devil: HAHAHAHAHAAAA

    Darned it we need a PENGUIN as the mascot for the Olympics.

    Just hold on a while. Ok, forget about the credentials. Tell me, what was your latest score ? At what age did you begin "bombing" ? Why did you chose this line of work ? I want a complete psychological overview.

    My bombing career began when I saw Dr. Strangelove at nineteen years old. I immediatly joined the Air Forces's nuclear weapons division as a satteliete systems operator. Over time I was transferred to transportation and testing. Shortly after that they found me using the warhead to keep pizza warm and gave me a dishonourable discharge. Ever since then I've taken up the hobby of collecting different types of bombs. It's just a hobby, but I figured I might put some of my more redundant pieces to work. Sure, it's an expensive hobby but I've managed to get funding from various groups. I'm not sure who they are, I think they're charities that fund various collecters. They're nice, generous people.

    They make a big deal about the artist and his inspiration..

    Oh let's be realistic. It is obvious this masterpiece was inspired by such greats as Da Vinci and his works. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
