My Avatar - an explanation.....

    Recommended Posts

    Guest Guest75

    I've been asked several times now about why I chose this picture for my avatar.

     

    I can say there is nothing serious in it at all.

     

    Bit of an "in joke" really.

     

    The picture is a still from the film "Chopper", played here by Mark Bana.

    He captured him well.

     

    To those of you who do not know "Chopper" Reid is a legendary criminal here, quite a character and to some a likable rogue.:smile:

    Just a joke between a few of us on my part.

     

    When I was a moderator it had different meanings......:goofy::arghh:

     

    As I have been asked a few times I now wonder if people find it offensive or offputting???

     

    If anyone does ,please say - here or by PM and I will change it.

    I used to wonder why you used this Avatar but I kind of think it is cute.....although I am not sure that this Chopper guy was a good guy in reality. But don't know enough about him. I definitely like Mark Bana...and not offended but I do like the other ones too.....variety and all that...

    I was sat in a lovely cafe in my little home town north of Adelaide a summer or two ago when my companions noticed chopper reid ( The real one) sat on the next table, they were quire excited but unfortunately had no idea who he was - i'm not sue he would go in the "likeable " basket however i believe he has done some good in and out of HMS - therfore I think your

    pic should stay :)

    Hmmn, guess it might fit you (she said, grudgingly) and it is soooo much better than an actual picture of you (:tongue:) which I think most people would find offensive AND off putting!

     

    Well, you did ask.......
