Other weirdness
« on: July 05, 2011, 12:37:54 PM »
Probably no one will get the Messi reference in the three word story, but it refers to a TV commercial which always struck me as odd...

What I want to know is, who has been tasting his feet?

Well that was certainly interesting.  I guess they didn't know that tasting people's feet was weird.

LOL
Hmm, I've never seen that commercial. That is interesting.
My grand nephew (who is only 11 months old) will taste your toes if you let him. So will one of my cats.  ::)

Commercials like that bug me when I can't tell what they are trying to sell. My best guess here is either shoes or a lighter.

Selling shoes (Adidas) - Maybe they have a foot fetish which might explain why they did not see anything strange in talking about the taste of someone's feet.  Maybe a lot of weird foot fetish types work for shoe companies.  I can imagine an interesting fictional character with a quirky desire to taste peoples feet and a lifelong dream of running a shoe company.

Hmm, that's an idea!  Put that character in space and Falling Whale just might be able to use him in her next story! Match him up with a pink talking unicorn and I'll put him in mine!  :D

P.S. - totally off topic- Falling Whale, do you want an icon picture? A little whale or something? I host mine on my photobucket. I found it on the web and modified it. If you don't have a photobucket you can use mine.

Regarding Avatars - you can also upload the avatar directly to the towelday site without needing 3rd party storage.  This is what most of us are doing (at least me, Lewot & VogonGirl).

To directly upload an avatar:

1) Go to the Profile tab
2) Choose "Forum Profile Information" from the options on the left
3) Select "I will upload my own picture" and click browse to tell it where to find the avatar on your computer.

I foresee some time playing with photoshop in my future. :)
Or I could steal this picture:

I'd like a shirt like that one day.

The shirt was so little it was hard to see the whale part, but I found this other one. Bowl of petunias and all!

Yes, very good!  I'm a bit envious.
