TARBOT: I’m going to state the obvious here
I think we now know the answer to the age-old question

CROE: and now i have my mother’s day card for next year

TARBOT: hahaha

CROE: how lazy of the artist to show us the back of the egg, so we have to do all the work and imagine a facial expression

TARBOT: on one hand
but on the other … he did cook an entire chicken

CROE: or he bought it from boston market
i’m having a difficult time believing that the egg has enough dexterity to write “to mother” with the hands that the artist has given him


TARBOT: great handwriting at that

CROE: clipwriting?

TARBOT: well … he’s got clips for hands…

CROE: i do like the choice of the wall color behind the scene
the color is egg yolk
it’s like, if for us, the color of the wall was blood

TARBOT: that’s fantastic.
well done, mr. Atoyan
well done
… um, no pun intended!

CROE: oyy
