The Physics of Crossing the Road V2

I decided to resub, now with a "cheering" section for the armadillo. Thanks for any revotes!

Thanks! And thanks to Nevetnod for suggesting that the bird in the back might be a baby vulture. I decided that it should definitely be a full grown vulture enjoying the show.

I think most of today was a blur, so Im not sure what all has changed, but I still like this +1.

Armadillos are so neat. We used to have one that would waddle around the grass in our parking lot at my old place. Sooo cute! In a weird way...

It's cute, but a rocket chicken crossing the road would garner a lot more votes.

Most people don't live near, nor have ever actually seen an armadillo, and are unaware of the large number of flat ones on the roads.

Vultures rock.

Surprised this one is still lacking in votes; the textures are amazing.

Agree with a poster above, I know this has been resubbed, but a chicken probably would have been good for more votes; of course, I'd still buy are armadillo!

I thought armadillos were pretty well known as roadkill, but I guess it is just a southern/southwestern thing. Maybe a rocket deer would have hit that more universal sweet spot... hmmm...

I'll just have to do my best to fix that.

(Ex-dillos are depressingly common here in Florida. Non-ex-dillos are SO CUTE. Before I moved here, I'd never before wished I could hug something that had claws quite that big.)

It looks enough like any number of critters that the concept is still sound. this thing doesn't want to be roadkill. Whether you know it's an armadillo or think it's a possum or something, it's clear.

That said, a rocket chicken would be horrible. Yes, it might bring in the votes, but it would make the piece pointless and trite. Pointless and trite is never worth a higher chance at a grand. It amazes me how often people actually WANT the obvious joke instead.
