But what is that toaster-like monster with the two eyes and the long "stick" nose that is positioned above the word "Lucy"?

So that's what a War Drobe looks like, eh? Are they related to War Droids, I wonder?

With the quality being what is, I would think you could call it a What Drobe?

The War Drobe looks as though he (she?) is getting ready to eat Lucy. Which suddenly makes think (on a semi-serious point now) of a fanciful idea: what about the symbolic image of Lucy as sort of Jonah-like character being swallowed by the Whaledrobe, only this time when the Whaledrobe spat her back out to her brothers and sister, they did not, like Nineveh with Jonah, believe her. One can even think of the rain that kept the children indoors at the beginning as not unlike the storm that resulted in Jonah being cast overboard. And perhaps Lucy's gourd and worm were the joyful discovery and subsequent betrayal of her brother Edmund's entry into Narnia when he denied it to Susan and Peter?

Well, now I'm pushing this waaay too far, but it is fun to think about anyway.

Either that or it is indeed a toaster offering us more philosophical "bread" to chew on. ;)

I probably need to point out that my original post about the drawing was meant to be a self-mocking dig at myself (I hope in perhaps the same tone you intended with your drawing in the first place), implying that in relation to the simplistic style of the drawing, I simplistically also was too dim to realize what was being portrayed. But of course it was perfectly clear all along what the drawing was meant to be. Just me failing to resist temptation.

I quite enjoyed the drawing in its minimalist manner actually! (which is why I took the time to play with it in my replies:-)

How about something with a little more oomph (not to mention soul, and oldies appeal for the likes of CW Butch and me):

Hey, if you want to write something else, you are more than welcome to it. I was just following suggestion (and copying a song that I actually happened to know...). Besides, you have to love the cheesy 80s beat and the terrible lyrics. :D

Brand new member of the club! I never really thought the reading order mattered much. However, last night I was talking to a bunch of the students about the new movie, and the vast majority of them had never read CoN. A few of them had tried to plow through MN first, and had gotten hopelessly bogged down.

I advised them all to read LWW, and decided that, yes, it matters what order you read the books in!
People flock in, nevertheless, in search of answers to those questions only librarians are considered to be able to answer, such as "Is this the laundry?" "How do you spell surreptitious?" and, on a regular basis, "Do you have a book I remember reading once? It had a red cover and it turned out they were twins." ~Terry Pratchett, about libraries
And we shall reach zero at some point. :)

John is the only forum administrator I know that endorses the starting of threads about absolutely nothing. :lol: All the other forums I know have admins that rant and rave when a pointless thread is created. It usually involves the mods cracking down and and a global sticky telling everyone to re-read the forum rules.
