my life summed up in a photo

For the past 30-some years I’ve been searching for the perfect analogy to describe my time here on earth. Well, I think I may have finally found it.

    And I, of course, in this analogy, would be the eagle… Just in case there was any question about that.

    Although a good picture, the strategy is stupid. Do they think that the eagle being pecked on is going to call his buddies on his cel and warn them?

    For what it’s worth, it worked on me. Once I leave this life, I’m never coming back.

    I’m not sure what it means, but I think I can make out the reflection of Rick Astley in the bird’s eye.

    I always imagined you to be more like the small fish in this classic photo:

    Any idiot can make a corporal punishment allusion joke here.

    All this idiot can say is that’s a wonderful picture.

    Mark, you’ll always be a pecker to me…

    I know you’re talking, Ubu, but all I hear is a chicken pecking at an eagle.

    Have you learned your lesson about attacking chickens yet, young man?

    I love that photo NCMB. It’s definitely right up there with this one in terms of relating how I feel.

    So… who’s the chicken?

    I thought it was established that Ubu was the chicken.

    Who are all the other chickens milling around in the background?

    The ones in the background are called lurkers.

    It’s true. Every time I’ve seen Mark around town he’s had that look on his face, exactly like the one the eagle has in the picture. Each time, I sort of imagined him tied up with a chicken pecking at him. I never understood it and thought I was hallucinating.
