Yeah. Explain that little picture to the left of your posts.

Mine is a picture of myself with weird drawings on my hand with photoshopped eyes. Yay um... me.

We found the duck when we moved into this flat, and now it sits in our kitchen as a mascot. My old avatar was me with pirate hat and aviators on, and everyone seemed to notice the hat and glasses more than me. When I wanted to change avatar, the duck was the first funny picture I came across, and so that you could all still recognise me, I dressed him up in my attire.

EDIT: Back to the old avatar now. The duck was a bit of a fashion faux pas.

At the risk of creating some kind of infinite loop, I made mine because of this thread.

Years ago I found this animated gif of a cute tux typing away on his laptop. I forget where it came from. My main computer at home is a linux laptop, so it works (I'm not a penguin though.. really!)

Tux is probably sterile from the heat of the laptop though :cry:

It's holding my puppy above my head while she bites my hand. Some believe that it is my biting the hand of some guy who is holding me up. That belief probably stems from my last avatar that was just the pup:

By the way, her name is Sophie and she is 5 months old.

Yes, I approve.

In any event, mine is the thinger from SkiFree. I wanted a different avatar from my normal Trogdor one for this forum, just for fun. It was one of the first things I found.

Because I'm an outer god.

Same reason why Belial is clearly human. He's got a hat. I don't see what the question is here.

Mine is a tribute to Douglas Adams and The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. It's a picture of Earth with an asterisk, notating a disclaimer that Earth, is in fact, "mostly harmless".

I'm not too hot on the fine points of the mythos, but isn't Nyarlathotep the messenger of the Outer Gods?

Incidentally, my avatar is XKCD fanart(!) drawn by myself. It's the Black Hat guy, tipping his hat. The arms are different lengths because I couldn't be asked to fade it out.

Yes, but I'm also fairly certain he's counted among their number. Same as how Mercury is the messenger of the Greek gods, and is also a greek god himself.

I could Wiki it but I'm... supposed to be working.
