This is one of the greatest thread ideas ever!
Someone did this on a motorcycle forum once, and some hapless guy forgot to take down the shortcut icon labeled "SHEMALE VIDS".
Someone noticed, pointed it out, hilarity ensued for weeks, and that was the last post the poor guy ever made.

Here's mine. (Nothing omitted or deleted, BTW. haha)

Thanks, that is one of my photos I am most proud of. The pick on your desktop is cool. I understand, sometimes my desktop gets a lil more disorganized.

FYI, I did delete the shemale vids on my desktop before taking the screenshot...hahahahahaha

No it doesn't. My @$$ is much, much larger than that. I like that photo because it makes something truly colossal look miniscule.
But the image is admittedly squashed a little by the compulsory resizing. Here's the unsquashed version of my @$$ in its full majesty.

What's behind your Gimp2 icon there, Squirreli? Anything shameful?

Me too. I think it may be a little excessive for the Arkansas River though.
