    Both are excellent, thanks very much for the links.

    Oh I wish I could have used the T-Rex one for the Tusoteuthis article. My money is on the tyrannosaur though!

    Actually,

    not convinced.

    Well, the painting just looks like a giant squid, a dinosaur and a sperm whale engaged in as huge scrap to me. Oh I never understood art....is Mr Bird truly taking the mick, or is he being utterly pretentious?

    I think if you explore the sight, the answer to that will come to you pretty quick. Check out the Raphaelish Deep Space Nine scene.

    I see what you mean. That Death of Jennifer Sisko was one of the funniest things I've seen for ages, I burst out laughing. Talk about mixing the sublime with the ridiculous.

    This is great stuff, anyone who paints pictures of Mr T confronting the Greek gods is worthy of a stout handshake or two.

    Uh...ok. Seems reasonable to me. No really.

    Quite a coincidence I'd say ... I'm convinced that there's an extra hair on the chaps right leg, just above the knee in the photo!

    Clem, should you happen upon a photograph of a T. rex chomping down on a sperm whale, chomping down on a giant squid, please do post online!
