Raven like a writing desk by ~Everywhen is a wonderful illustration of a famous quote and riddle. A fine example of an image created purely out of letters. ( Suggested by 3wyl and Featured by pica-ae )

I can't read what it says lol but I know the answer to the question.
A writing desk would have a feather/quill on it and an ink bottle, for writing with. Raven's have feathers. Like, duh. lol way too obvious I knew that when I was like 5~

There is an answer. It was made by Lewis Carol as an afterthought, originally having no answer at all though

The answer is in the author's notes in Alice in Wonderland. "They both produce flat notes."

I thought it was because they both have bills and tales (tails).

*shugs* I don't know. I just read it in Lewis Carroll's note in the book. Apparently, that's the answer that Lewis thought was correct? But... did he make the riddle originally...?

The bills and tales one was good though. :)

well, on threadless are a lot of shirts with book, movie and game quotes or designs based on those, I don't think you would get in trouble. =)
this design is an example:
