I should have taken this out in a field but I thought of that too late.

I am not sure if this will make any sense but at least it's got a spatula!

Hopefully Derek will chime in at some point and explain his name :D

Cheers!

excellent representation and great description derek. 5.8 was a really low score for a perfect characterization as this, too bad. but so cool.

I liiiiiiike it! Very much! It's so hard to get those beautiful light rays without totally blowing out everything around it. To me... it looks like a very spiritual spatula to me!

One of my favorite entries, Michelle. Wonderfully quirky.

lol
I was wondering who did this and awaiting the end. I had long thought of doing my own in both this challenge and the previous username one, but thought I shouldn't do my own. Maybe I will later. I did get a good laugh out of seeing it, once voting started; made my day :)
Anyway... for the explanation-

"Honestly, I'm spiritualspatula ALL over the place on the web. It was a googlesmack when I chose it, which means I can unify an identity. It's somewhat of a joke, too, me being an atheist and all, on iconography and whatnot. Symbols are what we make of them, nothing inherently sacred about the symbol or item, it's the ideology and thought we put behind it, so why not a spatula? It conjures up amusing images and absurdity. It's silly, it's specific, it's alliterative, but easily remembered by people for it's oddness. Way back when I went as angrycheese for some communities (suitably odd and very very rare initially... but that one got more popular and I stopped using it).
It's very rare indeed for people to not laugh when I give them my e-mail address/handle, and I like that aspect, as well.

So there ya have it :)"

Ha, I had a similar idea for that name. I'm glad you went with it, it's a fun image.

Funny, I originally had the same idea.

"and as he raised the kitchen utensil, the sky opened and the giant pancake arrived. The cemetary filled with sunlight and they all rejoiced, and did their morning pilates routine, al fresco."
