Question Who is your avatar?

Who is your avatar? Inquiring minds want to know!

Or if not a person-picture, what is your avatar and why did you choose it?

Mine is Socrates of course, but you all knew that already!

Mine is a painting by the Dutch artist Poen de Wijs (http://www.poendewijs.nl/).
It's supposed to represent global cultural diversity.

I'm particularly curious about partofme's avatar :laugh:

The original picture is actually a popular picture on the internet. I can't remember exactly who the guy is but I know he is a European political appointee that was captured giving the funniest look of shock on his face at a meeting. It's a popular meme on image boards. The picture I posted is of a altered version in which the guys nose is removed and the top and bottom parts of his face are fused together without it. I just think it's funny and very odd looking. No big story beyond that really.

I guess I need to find another one!


Edit: until then, I'll have to suffice.

Wow... I thought that was a picture of a young Che!

And at least you have a nose! (unlike some avatars...)

He looks like a kid who goes to my school. He played an older guy in a play recently so was rockin' the stache.
