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!

Artist ?

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. 7. Feb 9, 2006 ### Moonbear Staff Emeritus 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... 8. Feb 9, 2006 ### marlon how can we be certain that you actually can execute this job ? What are your credentials ? marlon 9. Feb 9, 2006 ### Dawguard 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 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.

OK, those are totally chromosomes. And they are crossing over!!

They make a big deal about the artist and his inspiration..
.. but then Pedro said, "meh", got drunk, and drew the logo.

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:
