    I know. We have this thread now and then, but it's the weekend and so it's time for a new one. Time to big up some of your current favorite avatars and perhaps tell us why you like them.

    Some I've been looking at recently:

    I like this one because I find the name funny, and there something retro yet clean-looking about it. I like the little red dots and being smaller than most avatars, it's just kinda simple and neat.

    Funny animals. I don't know where this one comes from but to see a husky (?) go WTF amuses me.

    Lau

    Hand-drawn, simple and so like her. :)

    Janey

    A classic. Moof!

    And finally, a brilliant one from someone who we haven't seen around for a while...

    I love Doctor Q's current one!

    There's someone else that has one too but that's the right avatar.

    Edit: Yeah it's Wild-Bill!

    Somewhere, I'm not entirely sure where, I think there might be an archive of them. Maybe he'll post some of them or someone else will.

    I have always enjoyed Dr. Q's avatars, mostly because of the theme. I'm always curious to see what he'll create next:

    I also rather like Knox's (gives me a good chuckle):

    jsw's is also good, although I'm highly biased towards anything astronomical.

    It's from the film, Blue Velvet, where Dorothy Vallens is fearfully and suspiciously opening the door to Jeffrey Beaumont, a young man who is obsessed with her.

    Didn't we just do this recently? :p

    I like edesignuk's latest one. Unlike the other similar ones, he moves slowly. Looks stoned if you ask me.

    One of the ones I like the most is the one with the Windows 98 start button and right bellow it says "getting frustrated."
    Does anybody remember who's that is?

    OMG. I was just about to say that.
    I love it!
    I also loved iBlue's previous avatar.

    There's one that has the background color of the forum and has a bug crawling around on it. I forget which user has it, but it is both my favorite, for its cleverness, and least favorite, for the confusion it's caused me.

    I am sure there are more, but that's all I could think of off the top of my head.

    I second edesignuk's avatar, it is one of my all time favorites, and I'm not even a cat person.

    As far as the crawling bug one goes, I forget who had it, though I have seen it on other forums.

    It was originally cleanup.
