My kids were given a copy of the really odd game, Ring Around the Nosy. It led to some amusing dinner table conversation between Carly and I. We are grateful for that, not too much has been amusing lately. Unfortunately, I can't really repeat any of it. Partly because it was a "you had to be there" moment, but mostly because it was super-saucy.
Despite that, I thought it could be used to make one of Tobias' character pictures, but not with the ridiculous elephant nose. It reminded me a bit of the little character in Fifth Element, so I started to think a bit sci fi. Tobias was playing with Pirates when I was thinking through this so I mixed the ideas together.
We may revisit this idea later. To me this looks like my idea accidentally channeled a bit Eminem. Besides, I'm thinking a space pirate needs a mechanical hook hand with a frickin laser beam attached.
