Change my Gravatar, Please!

When I started my blog, I chose a gravatar to represent an old, grouchy curmudgeon.   Statler the Muppet seemed a good choice.  Now I wonder if my image as a Curmudgeon-at-Large needs an update.  But what should I choose?

Here are some possibilities concocted after a late night of heavy medication:

In order, they are:

Chad the Chippendale?, William Powell,
Caligula, Walter Brennan,
Fulgencio Batista, High School nerd,
William Henry Harrison, Tiny Tim,
Vlad the Impaler, Vlad the Impaler?! (Honest, this image came up when Googling Vlad the Impaler),
Jude81 (justmakingconvo’s boyfriend), Jude the Obscure,
BK Bacchus, Gangster Bacchus,
Grade B movie warrior (from veggie macabre), Gomer Pyle

What do you think?  I am open to suggestions.

In the meantime, I’ll stick with Statler   …or me with a paper bag over my head.

  1. I’m a big fan of Statler and Waldorf, so I say stick with them. Other famous curmudgeons… Groucho Marx, Woody Allen…How about Winston Churchill or a somber photo of Col. Sherman T Potter ( of MASH fame)

  2. I think of you as Edward Asner (when he was on the Mary Tyler Moore Show). I think of you as Carl in the animated movie Up! Maybe a bit old, maybe a bit grouchy, but with a sense of humour and a marshmallow centre.

  3. If you choose Tiny Tim I am out of here!

  4. How about the great and powerful Oz? That green projection on the wall? He seems kind of cranky, impatient and mean…? Could be a good back-up.

  5. Yeesh! I’m still shuddering over Tiny Tim. I vote for Statler – he’s exactly the right combination of crusty and cuddly (but don’t tell him I said so).

  6. While I enjoyed all the new options mightily, I sure do like the gravatar that you already have.

  7. Oh, please don’t change … frankly I can only see you as Statler. It’s an image made for a curmudgeon.

  8. Caligula or Vlad would be a nice tip o’ the hat to historical menaces, but they all have possibilities, really. Except maybe that weird high school guy.

  9. What if you were your own gravatar?

  10. Whatever you do, don’t choose Tiny Tim. You’ll scare everybody away…

  11. CaL,
    The way I see it: none of the above. For branding purposes, as I’m somewhat obsessed on the topic, why not have one that is made just for you? Like a little purring kitten?
    Le Clown

  12. William Powell, because both of you are suave.
