@Starr Shine? How do you come up with these avatars? Now you have the hand drawn version (in black-and-white and color) as well as my celebratory avatar and the Von Bontee avatar with a bite mark out of the apple! How Do You Do It?

That's awesome! Maybe some other things! Like on MMM's Rubber Soul avatar, we could create a version where the boys appear in reverse order (i.e. Paul on the left, then Ringo, then John, then George on the right)! What do you think?

Or maybe he could crop it, rotate it, stretch it, adjust the hues, and slap some stylized writing in the upper-left corner. Maybe the legend "Rubber Ball" in a completely spherical shape!

Hey @parlance I like that! Nice for a change to see a nonBeatlized avatar. Is this your first one without Paul? (I can't remember what you had before that hip-thrusting one, if any)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Thanks! But it is Paul! I made a gif from the video @Ahhh Girl posted in the Paul interviews thread.

I do seem to have a lot of Paul-centric avatars despite not having a favorite Beatle. It's his fault for being so photogenic, really. :-D

I log into the forum today and the first thing I see is @Starr Shine?'s new moustache avatar!! And I can't help but think, "That moustache is very long and droopy!!!!! How does she come up with all this?" It's mind boggling, but it's a great source of humor!!!!!

I'm glad you posted a larger picture of it. When I first saw the avatar, my first thought was "why is he pouring lighter fluid on a BBQ grill?". Now that I can see it, it's rather cool. Cooking up some type of veggie delight, no doubt.

I think it's supposed to be scrambled eggs, though. ;-)

That must be some type of vegetarian loophole - eat the egg before it becomes meat. ahdn_paul_02

It seems it's a good time to ask- Which came first- the chicken or the egg?

Well... seems fairly obvious what came first.
