11 March 2008

A very cute little elephant head just manifested in my French press (pre-pressing). I'm kinda bummed I can't sell it for a few thousand on eBay. [More:]

This may or may not be Ganesh the elephant god making a sign that he loves me more than most people, or that he really just loves coffee. Anyway, I feel special.

That's awesome. He's cute. It's too bad you can't keep him.

At first, all I saw was the Flying Spaghetti Monster. But now, I see Ganesh. I'm feeling really fucking holy right about now.

Once again, god has chosen to hide from me.

Oh, wait! I see Ganesh now! Yay!

Sell the picture on ebay. Will get as much as a crappy 70's t-shirt I'm sure.

For people who can't see it, li'l elephant is facing you head on with a wide-eyed expression, and he's saying "Hey, I want to be your friend!"

At least that's how it looks to me.

i like it. It's ours.
My coffee didn't have any animals in it.
But i do have a big spoon that my cat rubbed against her butt.

I only see a squirrel, facing to the right.

I love modern technomology. Imagine last century if people'd told me I'd be looking for elephants in the arrangement of coffee grinds on the other side of the world. Just because.

I'd've told them that I'd have far more important things to do. Ha me!

heehee. It's funny because it's true.

Jan, if the baby Ganesh will not reveal, even with meditation and peanut sacrifices, I'll outline him for you... let me know. All should partake of the miracle of the coffee elephant.

Yes, please do taz. I can't see him. But please do not kill the squirrel in the process.
posted by essexjan 11 March | 04:35
Well, I tried to do the outliney and once he came out looking like a golden retriever, and once he came out looking like Eeyore - so try this.

I see an efelant looking over his right shoulder. Can I drink the coffee now, please, Taz, purty please??

Wow, I hadn't seen your new pic yet, that's brill!

*gives coffee. and blessings.*

I see the thing from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. I've only seen the commercials, but it's some kind of manbeast thingy with tentacles (or something like tentacles) on his face. Except that the thing in the coffee is cute, and this guy is not!

That's funny, because i was thinking about doing a comic about an elephant and an octopus, best friends kept apart by enviro/mental circumstances.
posted by ethylene 11 March | 08:42
I totes thought it was a squirrel at first too.
posted by sperose 11 March | 08:52
I think your comic sounds sweet and funny, eth. I love elephants and I love octo whatevers.

Coffee-Ganesh, the remover of morning obstacles!

Why, why, must god always hide herself/himself from me!?!?

I feel like Mother Teresa here. Good works all through the day, a miracle here and there, but all I see is a fucking cup of coffee.

And, this being the Internet, I can't get my hands on even it, in its plain non-glory.

Have I told you lately that I love you, taz? Because I totally do.

wheeeee *loves jrossi vewy, vewy much too*

Are you talking about the top right, Atom Eyes? We can only put posts in that section... But Ganesh has noted your enthusiasm, and indicates good things just might be on the way for you. :)

Still no joy. Put me in the squirrel pile. Does that sound dirty, or is it just me?
posted by Fuzzbean 11 March | 12:21
Did you click the reveal, fuzzy one? Not that I want to take you out of the squirrel pile, mind you; I know how fun that pile can be.
posted by taz 11 March | 12:38
I'm not seeing it. I mean, I can see what you are saying is an elephant, but I only recognize it as such cuz you told me.

I want something like this:
