Jus' lookit all that stuff a-bubblin' up from the unconscious. Coolio, man, cool.

the large mouthed guy looks like a character from the Nogin show Obie. It's a really low budget show using peoples hands with little eyes attached to them as puppets. The dialog is apparently written by cavemen, they say things like "Obie, dance. Granpu Obie watch" I can't figure out if they are trying to show kids the wrong way to talk or if it's for retarded kids, so that they don't feel intimidated by proper english.

The big difference is that in your drawing the character is compelling, where as the Obie "PUPPETS" are just ugly and lazy designs.

BTW: Why the hell do i need to type in a word verification just to post a comment. Is there vital info being exchanged that I'm not aware of?

Becky: Yes, the ol' unconscious.

JB: I hate that Obie shit. Hands with eyes glued to them: Weak.
As for the word-verification, it keeps the spambots out.

Which one is the leader of the Group?

I'm betting on the big-mouthed guy.

Looks like a Chinese banquet.

Dom: I'm not sure that there is a leader, though folks tend to congregate around people with haloes. I wouldn't count out whoever's arm that is, though.

David: Thanks! The double headed gator made me think of Janus: an ancient Roman god of doorways, of beginnings, and of the rising and setting of the sun, usually represented as having one head with two bearded faces back to back, looking in opposite directions. (dictionary.com)

Sharon: I'll have to go to one if they look like that!
