“I never saw a Purple Cow,
I never hope to see one,
But I can tell you, anyhow,
I’d rather see than be one!”

An 1890’s poem and a 1990’s cow.


“Your Tiny Pet Is Dead”

Because ghost poo makes me giggle.

I excel at procrastination. It’s a fine art I’ve honed since early childhood.

literally the most obscure thing I’ve ever made P:

Great job with X. :slight_smile: Great shirt.

This is likely way too niche- The REN AND STIMPY/TWIN PEAKS mashup you never knew you needed!

If you think about it, we are all living in the future of the past! Deep, huh? :blush:

i was about to submit my ren and twin peaks mash up too

Amazing. Brings back childhood trauma.

Mojo, baby, mojo! Groovy! Love the sport-shirt look too. You have my vote! :smile_cat:

I thought I knew my TNG but I don’t get what X or Y refer to.

love this man :slight_smile: one of the best parts of the 90s for sure!

A little Vanilla Ice

Riker, then a lieutenant, was once unknowingly copied in a transporter accident, creating two versions of him (hence ‘Xerox’, or copy). The TNG crew discovered the second Riker stranded on a planet where he’d lived for many years by himself. He ends up going by his middle name, Thomas, and even shows up on a DS9 episode.

Y is Youth, for Wesley Crusher.

Ha! No way! You ARE still subbing it, right?- we are apparently of the same niche!

This is adorable, but…
I look at the original NES as more of an 80’s thing. I had one around 1986.

Inspired by Lisa Frank and Xfiles

Thanks! X was definitely the toughest.
