One of my teachers at political science asked my class: "What is the opposite of an elephant?". One student replied: "A mouse". Another: "An Ant". I replied "A TOASTER!"

I'm about to start my 100-page masters dissertation, so I found it appropriate to buy this original drawing of "the opposite of an elephant". It's going to hang on my wall, and remind me to keep the sentences short and to discuss my subject with real persons - and not just my machines.

Mathias Schwartz Kirkegaard,


he did write really rambling sentences. good call, toaster

Marc Johns

Best of luck with your masters dissertation, Mathias! I'm so glad my little drawing can help out, in a tiny little way.

And yes, bliss, Mr. Kerouac had famously long sentences, didn't he? However I've enjoyed many of his books.


oh, yeah, as have i!


this is so funny, i like it.
