Is there any bandwagon I won't jump on?

Probably. Just not today.

Dale already has a cool Simpsonesque avatar. Fabulous Chicago author Amy Guth has recently been Simpsonized.

South side bureau chief Dena, source of many of my favorite freak stories, has also undergone the transmogrification.

Now it's my turn. I present to you the Simpsonized Bubs, complete with my mutt Duffy:

Duffy is much more handsome in real life, but I think I benefited from my cartoon makeover. I lost some weight and have apparently gotten some impressive dental work done. I'm pictured here, tiki drink in hand, doing some field investigative work.

Oh. It turns out that Simpsonizing might be a cure for Shy Avatar syndrome.

Dude, the Up With People bandwagon will be by for you later.

Barb and I were way too far ahead of the curve as usual.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

hahaha I'm still looking for that picture on my work computer, Just A!

Bubs, you have never looked hotter. The shirt really brings out your eyes.

Dino aka Katy said...

of course I had to go try it right away - turned out to be some baby

BeckEye said...

I've Simpsonized myself too...I actually made two and I can't decide which is more like me. I'll post it eventually.

Are you taking over for Sideshow Mel?

Mob said...

I keep meaning to do this for myself, but I'm also mulling over just a series of rotating chicken pics for avatars.

I wonder if they could Simpsonize a pic of a rooster?

Mines HAWT!!!

Bubs said...

Jin, how did you change the hair color? I seemed to miss that part.

Oh, nice barrel by the way...

mob, I'd give it a try. My kids think you have a cool avatar anyway.

Beckeye, when will we see the Simpsonized you? And, no, I'm not replacing Sideshow Mel. I'm probably serving a warrant on him. He is, after all, a clown.

Katy, let's see it!

Barbara, thanks. Like I said, I benefited from my cartoon makeover.

Coolcat, my hat's off to you, trendsetter.

Dr. MVM, ha ha ha. Clearly the picture does not capture my totally not-perky, not-suitable for up with people demeanor.

Jin and Coolcat (or anyone else) because, as you all know, I'm an html retard, can you explain to me how I can insert cool links in comment text like you guys did? Please?

jin said...

a href

insert web address here

insert your clickable text link here

ok...did that make sense? You type it in one whole line. No spaces anywhere except the ONE between the "a" and the "href".

Before old blogger went new blogger one could even get inside EACH comment (with a greasemonkey script) and make text bigger, smaller & add photos!
*collective Oooooh! Aaaaah!*
But I don't think it can be done in new blogger yet.

p.s. To change the hair colour you had to be in the 'hairstyle mode'. There was a little colour dropper to the left of that. You choose from the colour spectrum thingy.

Thank you!

Dale said...

You don't look Krusty at all Bubs, more like a dashing Tom Waits.

Are you going to make a gray haired version for your other look?
