In this graffiti, your task is to create a 120 x 120 avatar for another Mechapixel member to use in the forums, if they choose to. Feel free to give another member some crap about something they've done or said in the forums at some point... or you could make a nice tribute av, or something playing off of their username. See this avatar slag for examples.
Animated GIFs: If you make an animated gif, be sure to check the box on the entry form, 'Is this an animated GIF?'. If you don't, your entry will run through the normal image optimizer and end up barfing all over itself.
Once this graf has ended, members who had an avatar made for them are encouraged to use it for a while, as a sign of appreciation to whoever took the time to create it.
Finally, please include the name of whom the avatar is for in the title or in the comments field, if it is not spelled out in the image.
This graffiti should be fun, and everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate!
Awesome! Thanks, man!
Twiggy: President Kennedy said in his famous speech in front of the Berlin city hall in '63 "Ich bin ein Berliner", "I am a guy from Berlin", basically. Thing is: A Berliner can also be that cake thing you see there (minus the teeth). (Rumours say that Jackie Kennedy said after her husband was shot: "Whoa, all that jelly. He really was a Berliner!")
Truth be told...it is the syntax of Kennedy's statement that was the issue. To say," I am a guy from Berlin," would be Ich bin Berliner. Being that a berliner is a name for a jelly doughnut, when you put the "ein" in the sentence, Ich bin ein berliner, you are saying, "I am a jelly doughnut."
