For anyone interested, I have 3 new works in my "Ocean Invasion" series up over at my Laughing Mantis Studio website.
Here's a good laugh for your monday: a redneck child (me) in Hooks, Texas. Yes - we ate them squirrels.
While I somehow managed to escape true redneckdom, I still have very strong "country boy" roots. Mitch still remains fairly redneck. Sorry bro, you know it's true (though he has outgrown some of it in the past few years).
I find this funny because you can clearly see my more animal-friendly biologist tendencies already on display in the manner in which I hold the squirrel.
Here's a challenge - how many hilarious details can YOU spot in this image? There are quite a few.
All that's missing is the rat-tail that only came a few years later...
