Icon Squee Meme

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your userpics.
2. Make a post and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee.

(I actually like this meme 'cause I always wonder about people's icons.)

I picked it up from kinkyturtle. He asked me about:

This is Boo the Hamster from the comic MegaTokyo. Boo was sent down as a conscience for Largo (they ran out of seraphim, evidently); his angel wings are strapped on. I have a plush Boo in my cube at work.

I use this icon specifically when I'm being sincere. Boo is a really sweet character and this was his appeal to someone. (He didn't talk, just squeaked. So he needed a sign.)
This is taken from a picture on Worth1000, a Photoshop contest site (with good standards). Sadly, I didn't grab info or attribution when I made the icon. Bad me.

I tend to use this icon when I need something surreal. Or when there's ominous signs (this sign being pretty ominous).
A rat picture I found in a file archive way back. I use it when medical topics come up, which they do more often than I'd like sometimes.

I also have a thing about needles. (That's "trypanophobia" for you logophiles.) So this icon captures the icky side of medical procedures in my world.
This is an icon I put together myself. It's from back when the comic Sinfest did a weekly arc about Slick possibly being furry. It actually came about because Slick had been putting off going to the laundromat until he had only a single wearable thing left in his closet... a bunny suit. No real explanation was ever given but the icon gives you an idea of the cover story he gave.

Edit: Found it. start here.
This is Tardy Turtle from the TV series Greg the Bunny. It's a bizarre show about the lives of the people and puppets behind a kids' TV show... in a world where the puppets are all real. It manages to be both witty and crass. I recommend you check it out.

This icon is lovable (but slow) Tardy Turtle. I added the caption (which has nothing to do with what's in the actual scene). I use this icon when I'm talking about writing but I'm feeling slow or bemoaning my unpolished prose.

So there ya go! Leave me a comment if you want me to pick five icons of yours.

Alternately, leave a comment if there's some other icon of mine you want to hear about. That works too. It's an easy-going meme. :)
