It's Horst again. He lost his balloon... his only friend.

When Horst was a little boy he wanted to become a famous handball star. In his opinion that was the most exciting sport of all... or maybe it was just because of the sweating guys in short trousers.
However... one day he was on a field trip with the boy scouts and he found a helpless frightened squirrel in the middle of the road... it seemed to be hurt, so he decided to take the little fella to the veterinarian
...the only problem was that the squirrel had rabies. It bit him and the doctor had to amputate his finger because Horst wasn't inoculated... oh, he also was in a coma for about 3 months after that accident.
Well, shit happens.
Anyway, his dreams to become a famous handball player pretty much died at that time. Or have you ever seen a professional handball player with 9 fingers?

Maybe you ask yourself: What does that have to do with the picture?

good question

PS: I wanted the pic to look kinda old, bleached and dirty... I think it workes.

Okay so your picture not only brought me vast, vast amounts of joy, what with the bunny suit and the balloon and the grittiness and the transparent text in the background, but the story. THE STORY was like - as if someone handed me twenty dollars and then was like, "whoops, should give you fifty more." Best ever. Must favourite.

I like how small the facial opening is. Horst seems odd and interesting enough for me. He can get another balloon. There's always more balloons. :)

schöner still. und wenn das bild einen nicht zum lachen bringt, dann die geschichte...

hat das 'everyday its getting better and better' etwas zu sagen, oder ist es 'nur' hintergrund?

Danke. :)

"Every day in every way, it's getting better and better" ist aus John Lennons "Beautiful Boy"... aber I'm Grunde steht es in keinerlei Zusammenhang mit dem Bild. Es ist nur Zierde.
