English Muffin

A little mood music for the occasion:

Oh, do you know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man,
Oh, do you know the muffin man,
That lives on Drury Lane?

Second Verse:
Oh, yes, I know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man,
Oh, yes, I know the muffin man,
That lives on Drury Lane.

yea… that is not an english muffin, joke fail
also English muffins aren’t from england… they were invented in New York City

Uhm, anyone else see a butt on the chin?

The adorable design quota has been met.

Congrats on the print! This was one of the few designs I really liked from this derby.

Ahhhhhh I can’t unsee that now! Poor muffin.

Yes, because this design just screams “I’m serious! Analyze me!” not “I’m adorable and funny.”

:frowning: why is he smiling i though the thing about royal guards and the english in general was the whole stiff upper lip stern expression thingy

Uh, it’s not a joke fail. You just failed to get the joke.

The whole point of the joke is that putting a beefeater on a regular muffin and giving it a bayonette-tipped rifle will turn it into an English muffin.

If it was already an English muffin, it wouldn’t need the beefeater and rifle.

I would have guessed Walzaman. Oh well. If you can’t beat 'em, join 'em. Yay?

I had the order wrong but not by much. :slight_smile:

Ah, shucks! Thanks Spiritgreen!
I really am honored that you would choose my design. And I hope to see your entries again soon.

Now, in honor of the occasion, I’m going to eat a pudding stoically.

He’s got a Peter Griffinly obscene chin, and Mr. Crab’s legs.

ok one that hat isnt called a “beefeater” nor is that the type of guard/soldier that wears that hat

the hat is a Bearskin, which are worn by the queen’s guard (but was worn by other country’s guards too
A Beefeater is slang for a Yeomen Warders

The More You Know /shooting star

anyways my point was it would have work just as well and easily with an English muffin (which aren’t English anyways) rather than a cupcake style muffin, in fact at first glance i was like “ok cupcake guards? oh muffin, english muffin har har” this is the type of lame pun but not lame enough to be a funny lame pun design you see on 2nd or 3rd rate shirt sites not woot, or at least what woot use to be.

A top hit in the early 20th century. Maybe we could turn it into RAP !

So stinkin’ cute!

I thought these guys weren’t supposed to smile?

This muffin is undeniably chunky 'n cute and he makes a convincing Palace Guard, but what especially brings it alive for me are Radscoolian’s textures and subtle lighting.

And ain’t it the perfect souvenir to take home after two weeks of the London Olympics? :slight_smile:

So cute I just wanna pinch those little nooks and crannies!

In the words of the great Frank Zappa (RIP):

The muffin man is seated at the table in the laboratory of the utility muffin
Research kitchen… reaching for an oversized chrome spoon he gathers an
Intimate quantity of dried muffin remnants and brushing his scapular aside
Procceds to dump these inside of his shirt…
He turns to us and speaks:

Some people like cupcakes better. I for one care less for them!
