Warning- This post contains violent, comic book images rendered in stuffie form. Just thought you should know in case you're squeamish about that sort of thing.
This is my little brother. Not Tommy, the one I've mentioned before, but his twin, Matthew.
In this picture, he is using my sewing machine to make a birthday present for his girlfriend's daughter, Raven.
Raven loves a comic book that, frankly, scares the crap out of me. It's called Johnny the Homicidal Maniac and was created by Jhonen Vasquex Vasquez, the same guy who did Invader Zim.
If it strikes you as odd that a kid who could write such beautiful and tear-jerking poetry would also love such a twisted story, it shouldn't. Raven is bizarrely creative. And that's what we love most about her. I once watched her play a song using our wall as an instrument.
So without further ado, may I introduce you to Nailbunny, complete with abdomen hole and removable nail.
Click here for a ginormous version of the picture to see this guy up close and check out the awesome nail channel that I helped Matthew engineer.
(Huhm, it says that my spelling of 'ginormous' is an actual word. Who knew.)
And I'm not sure who is top of the weirdo list for this post, the kid who loves a comic book with a dead bunny nailed to the wall (and who also happens to be a vegetarian because cows and pigs are cute) or the grown man who decided that a dead bunny nailed to the wall would make the perfect stuffed animal for a 12 year old girl.
I guess you can decide for yourself.
