The Rhino's Curse

The humble Nano Rhino all but stampeded the Typewriter Brigade last year, helped in no small part by Ledeaux at Dante's Wardrobe and her near-bottomless supply of themed clip art. All I can bring to the table is my cheap plastic toy Rhino that I found at a local clearance outlet: the kind of place where "ambiance" means "open boxes on top of shipping pallets." The little guy turned out to be pretty photogenic, though, and has become my writing mascot, and by extension, I've subjected the Brigade to all manner of Ceratomorphic shenanigans.

I'd like to pretend that 2012 will be different, but let's face it: there's no joke like a recurring joke, and the memeification of this little toy provides hours of entertainment when I should be doing something else. Anything else...

Never let it be said that I don't share, though. If you'd like to roll your own, I've uploaded a pair of blanks for your own use. I just recently discovered that the "standard" font for memes is Microsoft's "Impact" which satisfied my typographic OCD. Feel free to have at it, and maybe join up with the Brigade while you're at it? We could use procrastinators like you.

So, a "cheap plastic toy Rhino" - found you say? Cameron's got one too. It's the farging Rhino Apocalypse!

By no small coincidence! Cameron lives relatively close by, and I might have picked up more than one toy.

Yes, it's true.

Mike Clemens' Rhino has a brother.

Mike kindly sent him to me just before last year's NaNo.

Ever since, The Rhino in The Woods has occupied a prominent place on a shelf above my typing table -- reminding me that there is always a NaNo in my future.

I have resisted this at times, but the Rhino always prevails!

Thor has a brother too, Loki. One good, one bad. Just sayin' ;-)

Nothing quite like brotherly love.
