#1 (ril)

In my ignorance, I have no idea what this is a reference to, but I love the dinky graphics.

How easily might I be conned into actually reading/buying this?

ril, good job, but dang that is a scarey morph. Then again, I have an affinity to pigs.

WO, you seem pretty easy...

Plus, we have pictures to blackmail you with.

This is the scariest one, to me.

It reminds me of that Island of Dr. Moreau thing, AND it reminds me of
a chapter in the Christopher Hitchens book I just read (it came out last year, but I was late reading it), in which he talked about pig flesh tasting like human flesh, and about how smart pigs are.

I haven't eaten bacon since I read that chapter in his book.

The pig person in your picture looks like he's looking at me. Good Lord.

I love the look of this one. I could actually see it on a bookstore shelf. And the eyes DO follow one... *tiptoeing away now*

WO, I think the reference is one where putting lipstick on a pig is rather like the saying gilding the lily.

Oh man, this phrase brings back memories. When I used to work a long time ago, before I found a sugar daddy (HA!), we used to call those last-minutes fixes on software 'putting lipstick on a pig.' To think our clients were Fortune 500 companies. AHAHHAHAHAHA!

Thanks for the stroll down memory lane.

Such chubby cheeks and deep red lipstick painted will over the lip line! Giggle.

This one kinda creeped me out. It reminded me of that Twilight Zone where everybody looks like your cover (except TZ was in B&W). The full-color eyes/lips contrast here is quite startling! Good job.
