I second (third) the suggestion that this magnificent picture be signed and dated by each person who recieves it.

But instead of limiting it to only Secret Santa - can it be sent at random to other unsuspecting NA Members?
Hold onto it for a few months... then ship it to another "Holder of the Photo" at random.

Even better...

Whomever gets this photo in their possession, posts a picture of it on NA as proof and gets an icon award for it.

+1 it would be cool to see this circulate throughout the year and maybe send it back to Mr. Bueller next year for Christmas. New androgynous photo every year? I love the picture frame bro, how did the frame shop react to that?

Heck yeah, I'd sign it and ship it off after a few months, that way:
 
1) doesn't have to be in your house a year, I mean, that's a long time
2) The joy of owning it should be shared more than once a year
3) I want an icon.

This is so brilliant! Wish I'd signed up. I love the icon idea, but I think this should be a Christmas tradition, as in once a year.

I get the feeling that 1 of the folks who gets it next well be fapping to it while holding the picture. God knows what places this thing well be placed on or in every year.


EDIT: seriously if this is going to be a thing now. Then please make a list of people who aren't interested in being part of this.

It should also be a rule that you take a picture of yourself while holding it in your hand and showing it off (like what you did). Then we can create a sort of "Hall of Fame" where every new owner gets their picture immortalized in the Hall of Fame next to the previous owners.

Towards the bottom of my orignal post I said I would be including a sheet on the back. I might even go get some trophy place to get me a really nice award type thing done. Really up the resale value on it, you know? Either way, it will have spots for those who have been given the item a place to sign it. I think where they live, date, and how they got it might be cool, so it is like a log. Something like...

I was kinda thinking along the same lines. I was worried that if we only did Secret Santa, it might only change hands a dozen times before possibly being forgotten. Maybe every three to six months? And it should be for like birthdays, or really nonsensensical celebrations, like No Pants Day or Arbor Day.

I tried to pick out a frame that resembled the grain of the dresser in the background. They did ask when I went to pick up, probably due to the plaque, so I told them a little bit about it. It was some old ladies, so I think it went over their head. They just nodded.

-------------------------

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at the Let's Play Gaming Expo last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

Oh, my WTB thread is very popular. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, Richard craniums - they all adore it. They think it's a righteous thread.
I'd also like to add that I've got my father's gun and a *scorching* price guide for aftermarket Nintendo games.
Between Dragon Warriors and nothing... I'll take Dragon Warriors - for any of my FT/FS/FO items.

This is great, I was laughing pretty good.

So of course I checked out the auction, while doing so Ebay lists similar auctions this was one of them.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/COLOR-POL...

Just as creepy. There should be some rules on Ebay about this.

Same here.

Shit's downright creepy to have a pic of some unknown kid in your place of residence, to pose with it, put it online, all with a caption that reads "Cute girl or Feminine boy."

If I were to get this at any point, it would be destroyed.

Haha, wow, that is pretty funny and the swapping concept is brilliant! It can be an NA Secret Santa mainstay.

Speaking of meeting people in pictures, I was thinking about the guy who wanted to recreate the old NES advertisement the other day. That's still a genius idea. Don't know if he really pursued it. I offered to help, and was even willing to fly to the shoot and film the day for posterity... and because I think it's hilarious.

If I don't see any movement on that by the end of the year, that may be my project for 2014.
