Girtarzan vs x136

Is it just me or does Girtarzan's new avatar look like an angrier clean shaven version of x136? Is it possible to be angrier than x136?

Discus or shotput?

I think x136 might be from an eastern-bloc country.

Some guy at a drive up pharmacy window saw me and started laughing at me.
He said I looked like that guy on Comedy Central.
I didn't know if he meant Cartman or Carlos.
He said that black guy.
I said what?
He said his last name was Black.
I said, you mean Lewis Black?
He said YES! Lewis Black! you look just like him, except your language is not dirty.
I said I can do that... He asked me not to.

Anyway, I've been sick for over a week, and now I'm feeling dizzy, a little crazy and ready to fight. I think I OD'd on cough syrup. So I was chuckling about the what the pharmacist said and looked up some vids on Lewis Black and saw that picture. It's pretty much how I feel about 80% of the time that last few days.

I guess kinda look like Lewis Black, in an overweight, middle aged white guy with glasses kind of way. Right now I need a haircut, so my hair is curling around like his.

I could be worse. I used to be a good bit heavier, had curlier hair and wore a tweed jacket in the late 80s. Every time I walked into work, the whole office would holler, NORM!.

So how close do you think you are to totally losing it and snapping these days?

I came pretty close a couple times.

Another explanation, My pituitary is non functioning and I take several hormone replacements. I wonder if this infection or the drugs prescribed for it are altering my balances. It kinda feels like 'roid rage and I do take 'roids, per my endocrinologist.

Anyway, If I suddenly stop posting here, you can write to me in jail.

There is symbolism in x136's icon. A hidden sexual message. Very, very discreet.

Or you're clinging to the front door of the pharmacy, waiting for them to open back up for the day.
