    Simple.

    I am a Joy Divison/New Order fan, my avator is the cover sleeve of New Order's Blue Monday. The biggest selling 12" single of all time. (sold 3 millium copies).

    It was designed by Peter Saville and factory records lost 3p on every copy sold because it had cuts out like 5.25" floppy disk.

    Never underestimate the pig. They are more intelligent than dogs you know.
    *remembers your old avatars* They were weird. I thought you were a knife-weilding maniac with an enormous tongue. At least one of those I now know is not true

    The history of pig's avatars (like anyone gives a toss).

    Genesis: Fozzy from bonecruncher
    Exodus: bub from bubble bobble
    Leviticus: A buggered up Rubik's cube
    Numbers: Quina version 1
    Deuteronomy: Quina version 2

    EDIT that went wobbly, the big quina one was last.
    hahaha i remember those, i would look at the top one and the one on the far right and i couldnt for the life of me see anything except some sort of rabbit in them

    Does your current one make sense only if you're on acid?
    I dont think it ever makes sense, only some random colors

    my first Avatar was a little bottle of Dior Poison which is my fave perfume. My second was a Michael Kors advertisement, the one I have now is another Dior advertisement. Basically because im a hardcore Dior fan.
