You people need some culture!
As I hope you all know, I
do memes, but I thought I should share my desktop image:
This is what graces my desktop. It is a ratty adaptation of Da Vinci's The Last Supper, and quite a good one too if you compare it against the original:
Unfortunately, it was created to promote a rodenticide, whose name will remain forgotten. Someone posted it on their LJ. I was so struck by it that I sought it out online and found that the full-sized version was made for killing rats. When I pointed that out on their LJ another furry very kindly produced this version with the rodenticide logo photoshopped out. I put it up as my desktop and it's stuck ever since. ^_^
pointed out this wonderful bit of Da Vinci-themed ratty artwork:

Thanks for sharing.

wow..now that's seriously awesome!
A shame about the original intention it was made for, but it still is very well done.

How long have you had this?
For a while at least?
Definitely interesting, though obviously only based upon the original and not a 'rattified copy'.

I'm not sure if you saw this story but I think its to your interest.http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2009/09/17/2689105.htm
Though I can't help but think its an opening to a joke,
A roo walks into a psychologist's office.
Psychologist: How are you feeling?
Roo: ... Insert punchline here....

Some psychologists have all the luck!

And for the canines who read this LJ...

ankhorite: Rat DaVinci
Wow... the Last Supper and the circled-rat are really wonderfully well done.
Bwah-hah, I didn't catch that the rat Last Supper is set in suburbia! But that makes sense; just another update, I suppose. :)
Thanks for sharing these. And see my icon!

Oh, Ankhorite! Another killer icon!
Being set in suburbia adds to the theme of the advert: It's subliminally pointing out that these "vermin" live among you. Close.

I still really love that last supper one, so well done.
The Da Vinci piece is fantastic :)
