Drawn out gag

I struggled with the name for the horse artist. When I looked up horse breeds I saw one called Paint, but I’d never heard of it before. Clyde Clydesdale reminds me of two things. One is the fantasy artist, Clyde Caldwell who painted a bunch of the Dungeons & Dragons art I saw as a teen. The other is Clive Craven, a name I made up for a D&D character. My friends all knew exactly where I got the name from… Cheers character Cliff Claven! Grugh. Actually, that was not what I meant at all. Rather than comic relief, I was trying for a kind of creepy name combining two masters of horror, Clive Barker and Wes Craven. Fail.

    Haha, great stuff! The expected “misinterpretation” joke, the unexpected joke about purposeful misinterpretation, a rather fetching Christi and an awesome “reclining” pose for the snowman. 😀

    Well it’s not as if painted horses are running free across the hills of Canada…

    The snowman is kind of a paint to deal with
