You know, avatars can be a very personal thing. What's wrong with Tom's new avatar? Placid, calm and understated... just like him!

Why would I want a yellow rodent for an avatar?

But I do feel sorry for the poor little thing.

I liked the helmet best... I got used to it and could spot his posts without seeing his name. Yet, the new one is calming, with those upright cyclists enjoying the countryside. I bet they are smiling and waving at people they pass. But, the man appears to be wearing just a pair of black shorts, while the woman is wearing a long-sleeve top and long pants. What's up with that?

It is NOT calming, it is alarming. That black background and the gray clouds just scream impending doom to those poor unsuspecting riders that Tom has somehow cast under his evil spell. The only things missing are the black cat and a clown in the sewer. I'm kind of afraid to even look at it before I go to sleep, BAD mojo there, BAD. I'd be much more comfortable with the volcano!

I have so* been trying to find his old avatar online so I could co-opt it and make him mad, but to no avail. This one was the closest I could find:

It was modified in three separate ways, in order to better conceal my identity.
