I voted "yes" because of what Humphrey said. I am on here all the time at work (which would be with Kindergarteners, 1st and 2nd graders). Luckily they haven't seen it yet, but I always have to scroll really fast when they're around. They already look over my shoulder sometimes and yell...

"BATMANNNNN!!!"

"SIMPSONS!!!!!"


Lord knows what they'd yell if they saw Crewhill's! :D
"Do you think people will vote for me?"
"Heck Yes! I'd vote for you."

Heh.... you remind me of my sister, but she works with middle schoolers, so when they over look her shoulder, they REALLY give some proper shout-outs.

Oh, and I didn't vote... but I think if you feel motivated to put a poll like this on here, you might as well have gone ahead and changed the av... because you already know the answer.

Yeah, I think there's nothing wrong with a sexy picture as an avatar (lord knows I've picked some sexy ones) but there's definitely a line. I don't personally find it offensive, but the fact that a number of people on here do is a sign that maybe you should change it. Not necessarily a need to change it, but it might be a courtesy.
Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.

Gollum? Who's that?
Do you like Gollum? I've been a big Gollum fan ever since the release of The Hobbit. Before that, I really didn't understand fantasy work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was in The Fellowship of the Ring where Gollum's presence became more apparent. I think Return of the King was the series' undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepened and enriched the meaning of the preceding three novels. Merry, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble work of Samwise, Frodo and Gollum. You can practically hear every nuance of every line. Pippin, remove your robe. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer screenwriting, this movie hits a new peak of professionalism. Pippin, why don't you, uh, dance a little. The Two Towers was the most moving movie of 2002, about monogamy and commitment. The film is extremely uplifting. The dialogue is as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in cinema. Merry, get down on your knees so Pippin can see your asshole. Gollum's solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially his appearance on the 2003 MTV Movie Awards. Pippin, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Gollum works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is King Kong, a great, great movie, a personal favorite.

A-ha. So Merry and Pippin are into each other (in more ways than one).

I thinkI would have chosen from one of the two greatest movies ever made... so either War of the World or Mr. and Miss Smith.

In that case, I guess that The 40 Year Old Virgin doesn't stand any chance.
