My joke fell flat with you, nesgirl, but I think others got it. (I was making fun of how guys see sex in everything. I was making fun of that, not your picture at all.
Anyway, I'll tell the story about my avatar picture. The INCREDIBLE artist who mastered 3rd grade finger painting who made this was, me!

Close. That was why I made this thread, but not why I made the picture.
My brother gave me a paint set for my birthday to play with and I didn't know what to do with it, so I decided to try and paint an image I saw during a hypnopompic dream I had. It was after a dream, and still had my eyes closed and I saw a simple image I can't forget. It was several years ago, and yet still remember it.
There's no way my artistic ability would do it justice, but I tried anyway, and it sort of works in it's simplicity. The actual vision I had was much dimmer and there was a vague image of a long shelf with one end vertical as though it was a book end, and the rest of the shelf was devoid of books. But drooping off the edge was a vibrant, glowing, green blob. But when I saw it, I had the undeniable feeling that the green thing was alive.
Then I woke up.
It was short, but made me wonder why some objects in dreams, even though I have never seen them before, and are nothing like any other living organism I know of, feel
alive. (That could be another whole topic).
As for the painting: I wanted the green blob to be the 'light source' of the painting and make it glow, and reflect off that 'shelf' as I call it, but that is very hard. (Beyond my ability). So I added a curl at the end of it to make it seem like it's not falling due to gravity, but rising up again to give a hint that it has control, hence alive. So that's the meaning.
I wanted to see if others detected any 'life' in this even though it's just a few simple shapes. As it turns out, you all did! Vonazar got it:

Sperm on a couch or even jizz from another world is also alive. (dead, but animated?... don't know how ghosts procreate
), but it does look like a flagellum doesn't it? I didn't notice that before. nesgirl got it:
Add a tail to the ball, and it makes a simple shape seem alive doesn't it?Snaggle got it:
That entity that 'body snatched' President Bush and made him act stupid and say all those crazy things has now jumped ship and is inhabiting Barrack Obama like a puppet master, and it too is green. It's a monster called, Money!
