What is your avatar and why do you choose it?

I've seen a lot of interesting avatars on this site and I'm just curious what your avatars are and why you choose them.

I choose the shark because it has many admirable qualities, some of which I can relate to my car:

swift - fast
movement is precise - good handling
body is streamlined - low coefficient of drag
survive this world for eons with minimal evolutionary changes - classic vehicle

I hope you don't mind sharing your avatars and your thoughts on them.



Regards,
JB

My avatar was the first pic I had on my computer, so I just threw it on and decided to keep it...and the gingerbread man is fast, just like my car, sort of...

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

Hi Syracuse315,

Your gingerbread man looks SOOOOOO sad or surprised? But I like it. It's cute.
