Since FM's amateur night went over so well, but seems to have run its course, I thought it was about time for a pale imitation contrived to serve an identical purpose.
I'll kick it off with another silly anecdote.
Way back in my (later) college daze, I was into CGI animation a bit. I was playing around with a character animation of a hot dog, with hat and cane, dancing a little Vaudeville number. I was trying to decide between a couple character designs, so I rendered a couple stills, put them on my web server, and emailed my sister links to the images to get her opinion.
She really liked the character and got pretty excited about it. A few days later she was talking to my mom on the phone, and in the middle of the conversation, she suddenly interjected with, "Oh, Mom! You have to see Marty's wiener on the internet!" From what I've been told, there was at least a full ten seconds of silence following.
(And yes, my real name is Marty. My super-secret Martoon identity has been blown.)
