Let's do this. What with the DramaLlama being out in full force, I think it's time to take a breather and bring the funny back. To wit: I propose the Santification of your gravatars till after the new year. Some of us have already gotten started. You can use the image as your baseline.

A good attempt, sir. And yet your gravatar remains shockingly boring –  Holocryptic Dec 18 '11 at 21:50
