    I’m glad we finally got to the leaf, the 800 pound gorilla in the room.

    Erotic and tantalizing!

    haha! Thanks. Yeah, this is pretty erotic stuff!

    that leaf… yes, it IS the 800 pound gorilla, I agree. I just reread your comment and laughed twice.

    “A vixen with squatting skills. Woot!”

    “Does your leaf change colors in the fall?”

    Hilarious.

    Part of me wants the gal in red to see that the fig leaf guy is a nincompoop and then the other part of me can absolutely see why she’s falling for him. The strange little man has an odd charm. It must be the dancing.

    I love these two. 🙂

      Thankyou, Gloria! Ha. Yes, i don’t know this whole thing has taken over my brain. And I agree, I’m both delighted by and disgusted by the dancing dude. It reminds me of a line from (I believe) a Woody Allen film “I am both attracted and repelled by the male organ.”

      He is like a talking, dancing penis. He is a grotesque, a perverted clown. So much fun to make these. It feels illegally fun. Thanks so much for your comments.
