The lobster's name is Plasty (one of his antennae broke and we fixed it with a band-aid, hence the name.)
Favourite Visual Artist
Bill Watterson, Winston Rowntree of Subnormality, Andrew Hussie, and a lot of the people who do MTG's card art.
Favourite TV Shows
I avoid television, so none come to mind.
