If you don't know, Ouroboros is the name for a snake eating its own tail. I always thought the line in I Palindrome I was referring to this symbol, so I used it for the title. Thanx for looking!

Thanks!

In thinking about it further, that line probably refers to a caduceus. Either way, I want the Rejectionator to know that the title is frivolous. This design has nothing to do with TMBG in terms of pop culture.

Any reason for the avian/duck-like appearance of the snake's head?

It's meant to look like a medieval woodcut. Their sense of anatomy was sometimes lacking. Hope it didn't throw you off!

Do you feature Gummi Wyrm Orobourus on the menu, and is old one-eye still managing?

LOVE the look! I've always liked the woodcut/scratchboard stuff. Nice work!
