Able Design

It's no surprise that I love animal related things. Well, maybe it is. But anyway, I love these posters by Able Design. Their animals have names and adjectives, which is great because then I can make up little stories in my head about these guys and just HOPE that they'll have action figures one day to act things out.

So here's Humphrey. He's happy, but that's only because he's also too dumb to know any better. He's in love with a poacher's wife, even though she's been with half the jungle and has a lazy eye. But I guess he loves her anyway and you can't stand in the way of love. One day he received a letter in the mail and it told a story about an albino gorilla who was struck by lightning and would go out haunting and killing on the third moon of each month unless you sent the letter on to five friends with a jar of jelly. If they eat the jelly before the sun comes up then you'll be blessed with good fortune cookie fortunes and be lucky in love. So he sent the letter and jelly to his friends and waited. His next fortune cookie read "A fool knows when he's a beaten. A beaten fool is really beaten. A beaten egg is scrambled." So it's obvious how THAT ended for him.

Caesar is a friendly lion, but in an ironic way. So he's actually not friendly. It's sort of joke on the savannah. Like the antelopes will be at the ol' watering hole and say "Did you see what Caesar did to Joe? That shit be cold!" and another antelope will say "Man, he's a friendly mother fucker, ain't he?" and the antelopes will all be like "FOR REAL!" because it doesn't really make sense but they just need to say something to take their minds off poor Joe, bled out in the grass after this cold killer got him by the throat.

Edmund is so fucking passionate it's unreal. Here is a short list of things he's passionate about: adventure, actuarial math, anarchy, achieving the impossible, artichoke dip, afghan horses, Amazing Race, assassinations. That's just "A". There's still the rest of the alphabet, with all those other letters. I just used "A" as an example because it made sense to start with the first letter. He's passionate about alphabetizing also.
