hey, he's using the old "forced perspective" trick to make his fish look bigger. He's much shorter than I remember, as well.

Jenn: found it at the 99c dream store.

Graymalkin: he had to make a second set of all his props to keep the perspective right.

Lorena: adorable? tell that to the fish.

J: that's what I thought. I went through a whole box of old family photos, and there were some other good ones, but this one really jumped out. the composition, the ambiguous expression on his face, the perspective... it's art.

Mysfit: I agree the car is really the icing on the cake.
