    They’re not nearly as evil as the ones that start out flat and drive you gaga when you try to assemble them.

      Did read blog if you mean Richard’s-still loved your photo-reminded me of my dear departed very special(according to all) cat. Sorry I don’t belong to your group & old computer prevents me from looking at much more. Best wishes.

    • Yeah, but once you HAVE assembled them, they clearly turn EVIL. It is the calssic story of maker creates useful helper, and said helper then turns on maker in order to be free and be their own person. We’ve seen it everything from Fantasy Lord of the Rings right through to Tron Legacy! I just never thought it would happen with boxes… man and van movers beware! Your time has finally come! Mwa Ha ha ha ha!!!

    Ah yes, TNT, Fedex, Dhl .. they are all scared of those .. always very suspicious about those .. and therefor being handled with the utmost care .. They seem to hang around at airports too … managed to get on flights ..

    The one on the left made me think of Mr Burns from The Simpsons! No idea why, though!

    They look like they can be trusted for the right price…

    • David Mathew says:

      They have names like Vinny or Louigi or Benny. They have meetings in pizza houses and second homes on ‘Lorn Guyland’. Or am I projecting too much onto this? 🙂

    After lunch at their club, Sir Humphrey and the Right Honourable Lord Gideon of Pibble discuss their pensions.

    One needs a fat, white, long-haired cat…

    Oh, I like this one, Richard; thanks for another delightful image 😀 Even the smaller flaps look like hands, as if they’re sitting there, fat and satisfied, plotting sinisterly. It’s amazing the stories the mind can form around completely abstract objects 😀

    • Eddie says:

      First one to mention the hands.

    • Ian says:

      Cheers, Eddie 🙂 Yeah, the hands add to their expressiveness: I can see them patiently gesturing and slowly drumming their squared fingers on their portly stomachs as they box clever and quietly plot world domination 🙂

    The one on the left looks uncannily like Richard Dawkins whereas the one on the right reminds me of his imaginary friend Phillip Pulltheotheroneman.

    Brilliant. Just brilliant!

    Maybe Dr. Honeydew needed cheap replacements for Beaker.

  14. Lisa says:

    Yeah, I’d be afraid to go into that room.

    They will hunt us again as January 2013 reaches its 29th day.
