Avatars: What went into your decision?

So I want to hear stories of how other people here decided upon their current avatars. Just like there is a thread to post your picture of their actual body which we have only some control over it would be very interesting to read about people's choices for the avatar which they have total control over.

Please don't hijack this thread to rant about how you hate **** or turn this into politics.
Thankyou...

In real life I'm a very colourful person. My avatar compensates this.

This anime version of an endangered Japanese wildcat symbolizes the fight against capitalism and Christian morality.

Damn, I forgot.
Mine symbolizes the blending of all religions and races, we are all living towards the single big light, the One who will accept you for whoever you are.



Actually I had no clue what I did, oh well... Sounds better than an animated eastern pussy ;p

I found it on an avatar site when I joined.

And I have never changed it, not even once.

A saw a picture of another forum member somewhere... and I thought, "hey, I wonder what I can do to that in Photoshop? ... after fucking around with the contrast, basically, I said "hey, that'd make a cool avatar."

Currently you see the evil monkey from the show family guy, which has succeeded the fax machine murder from the movie office space. Why?, I don’t know, I suppose the pop culture references bring a smile to my face and I hope others can identify and derive similar enjoyment from them.

@Vie excellent video indeed, created by the man who created spawn.

Mine can only be seen after taking strong hallucinogens, but it's pretty kikass.

I wondered if someone would point that out. The proportion doesn't work as well with all four colours, and it's just inspired-by, rather than an actual copy.

My avatar immediately before this one was part of a Spectrum keyboard, for what it's worth.

Best I can remember, they taste like any other mushroom I suppose.
It's been 20 years since I ate any.
Maybe a hint of cow manure

I alternate between various beautiful women, who are generally semi-obscure celebrities.

This month it's Piper Perabo. It was last month too. I don't know when I'll change. I might use Eva Habermann next. Or me in a wig.

I'm a psychosomatic sister running around without a leash.

eh, I've been somewhat known as a mediator between warring factions before (though not necessarily on these forums). As such I've found it appropriate to use the visage of Roger Smith, from the anime series Big O!, who is "The Negotiator." Although my avatar on another forum is Colonel Klink.

<---- its a cat in a frog suit.

i could make up all kinds of bs about how it expresses how i can be weird and endearing, unfazed by judgements, or how i sometimes fail to make sense at times by leaving out or trying to include too many ideas or words in my posts due to my inabillity to appropiatly express myself or my careless typing.

but the truth is i just think its cute. indeed penguins do rock.
