No, it's not a sketch of Ethel Merman...

... it's a sketch of Mer-Man--Ocean Warlord, and minion of Skeletor! As usual, this was posted on the He-Man.org fan-art forums. My post is here, the entire thread (including my Skeletor sketch) is here.

Of my posts so far, this sketch is probably the... sketchiest. The pose is ten kinds of awkward, and the body is just a shade too squat, even by the uber-buffed standards of He-Man action figures. On the other hand, the face turned out the way I wanted it too, and I'm pretty satisfied with the colors... Well, they can't all be winners.

That's about all I have to say about that. So now, to fill space as my system experiences a catastrophic crash from a carb and sugar high brought on by my dark lord, Jack In The Box, I will list the sinister contents of my disastrous lunch:
  1. Steak and Cheddar Ciabatta Sandwich (roughly the size of a premature baby)
  2. Miniature trough full of Cheese and Bacon Potato Wedges
  3. Large Order of Curly Fries (I only finished two-thirds of it)
  4. A bucket full of Orange Fanta.
It should go without saying that I skipped dinner.

I can't stand it anymore! Tell me what happened to the last third of curly fries!!?! What??!!!? Whaaaaaaaaattt?? Did they drown in the bucket of Fanta? Did the premature baby that you compared to the sandwich eat them!? The suspense is killing me! Maybe they joined the uneaten pancakes you couldn't finish all those years ago? ...

ren: it was chewy on the outside and crunchy on the inside.

annonymous: i ate the rest of the curly fries for breakfast the next morning. those pancakes, however, will forever be a badge of shame. i wear them like medals on formal occasions.

aside from the delish curly fries...for even more on Ethel merman...I just did a post on my favorite female vocalists (Ethel made it). Last Saturday I did a post on the top male crooners too. Interested in your opinions. stop by and say hi sometime.
