My sig definitely says more than my avatar. My avatar is a (small) pic of LAdy Pendragon. A GREAT comic that fell off the map. The sig is the meanest hitter in hockey, Scott Stevens, captain of the three time Cup champion New Jersey Devils. :D

But that Sho-nuff avatar is god damn hysterical. Somebody needs to get a Bruce Leeroy one now...

Sometimes, but not usually.

When someone's avatar is really cool, I'm sure to let them know.

I know this may sound like a cop-out... oh hell, it is, but it should be up to you.
