The Rhinoceros snorted through its great dark nostrils and slowly shook its gnarled head this way and that. Its immense tank-like body tense with indecision, the Rhino met the girl’s gaze. She, a mere five feet away, looked into the virtually blind eyes hooded with heavy lids and felt a sense of awe faced with the powerful beast, an oversight of time and nature, a veritable pre-ice age throwback. Its horn was of regal maturity and the Rhino seemed to regard it and the girl with a knowing indifference. Again, the slow head shaking.

Then the Rhinoceros ordered a large Coke, jumbo fries, and two cheeseburgers to go.

“Thank you, sir! Have a nice day!”

I like that lead character..."an apathetic drunkard." It's always important to create characters that your audience can relate to.

"Pan's Labyrinth " should have been in that surreal video collage.

I don't do drugs of any kind, that s's for hippies. I do, however, believe pot should be legal--if you want to smoke away your life, the government shouldn't be able to impede that choice. Knock yourself out mother f-er!

And I did like the pot video, especially the naked blonde on the bud, Homer, and Jesus H (Hemp) Christ.

"Pan's Labyrinth" is super cool. Seen it a couple times.

"I don't do drugs of any kind, that s***'s for hippies."

snort You said "hippies." My parents used to use that word. ;)

"I do, however, believe pot should be legal..."

I KNOW! It's important to have SOMETHING to look forward to, isn't it? :D

"Jesus H (Hemp) Christ."

Aaaaaaahhhh, THAT's what it stands for!

(Yeah, the only thing better than the pic itself is the fact that's from the math department at Temple University. Long live "higher" education!)
