Ordinarily we leave this sort of thing to the pros, but as you can see this is an extraordinary case.

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

Geez Jim, you might want to get that looked at! These things tend to take on a life of they're own, if not checked out in the early stages.

I can't help but think my dog would love to chew on that stuff.

Might do some good, even.

He probably can't get many chicks with those mitts.

Or even jerk off, the poor sap!

Sad as it may be, I find it fascinating and hard to stop looking at.

So, yeah, I saw this image on Boing Boing, and my first reaction was the same one that I feel when I see anyone with some obvious deformity: it scares the shit out of me. Not because I'm frightened of THEM, but because there's a part of me that is afraid that somehow I could end up like them. It's a totally egocentric and irrational reaction, but there it is. Then curiosity, then pity. It must be really really hard to be this guy. I think if I met him I might be able to graduate to sympathy or empathy, but from this safe distance, pity is all I can muster.

This is such a rare condition, that when people see it there's nothing to compare it to, it's just completely alien to their experience. It freaks them out. And that's the way pretty much EVERYONE reacts to you if you have something like this. And that's without mentioning the sheer difficulty of day to day life trying simply to pick stuff up.

And yes, as has probably occurred to many, this looks vaguely like a Jim sort of thing. Like something out of one of his more collagey black and white landscapes.

So, you know, if you get a chance, Jim, I wouldn't mind hearing your thoughts about this, outside of the usual (and often entertaining) enigmatic non-sequiters that are favored here at the Woodring Monitor. what exactly inspired you to post this? What does this make you think about?

i'll remember this image the next time i'm enjoying a hearty piece of the Colonel's Extra Crispy Fried Chicken. I hope you all will, too.

Thanks, Jim.
