Re: Avatars - Who else uses a real picture of themselves?

hmm, mine is me.. well, with different lighting and beard grooming conditions..
but it is not really funny..

'mine is me', is that correct? 'mine is I', maybe? hmm, 'my avatar is my real picture', so 'mine is mine'?

maybe i shouldn't have posted... oops, i already positioned the cursor on 'submit reply' button...

Re: Avatars - Who else uses a real picture of themselves?

Mine is of me...

I had some plastic surgery a while back so that I could go live among Muppets and "blend in" while secretly studying their sexual habits.
