HA! I like this but I think it would be funnier if it was something more bizzare: like a shark or a dolphin or something... Great work though...

Re: Big gulp


You made a comment on the snake entry that you thought it represented gluttony rather than greed. How is this different?

I suspected that someone wouldn't read what I said closely enough to catch the distinction between the two.

NO, I specifically stated that it did NOT show gluttony. That saying relates to hunger, not gluttony. People don't look at a gourmet meal and say, I'm so hungry I could eat a horse. They only say that when they are really, really hungry. A gourmand would eat as much as a horse just to eat, just because they could, not because they were "so hungry I could eat a horse". Consequently, I think the design is off topic.

The pelican was meant to show gluttony- no way he can eat that, but he wanted it anyway.

Re: Big gulp


great design! it reminds me of all the times the sea gulls have taken off with our big bags of chips, sandwiches, etc. Birds might just be more greedy than squirrels. ;)

The thumbnail really doesn't do it justice, though, sadly.
