What to say? I had a lot of trouble coming up with an image for this topic - but when the idea finally found me, I liked it.
A little inspiration came from the legendary Raymond Brigg's equally legendary Fungus the Bogeyman.

Here is my image for IF's topic 'Pretend'.
I'm not sure really where this image came from. It started out as the idea of a squirrel dressed up as a duck (with flippers and a tied-on beak), stood amidst a crowd of unsuspecting ducks and grinning. Then, the duck-dressed squirrel standing ankle-deep in a pond with a single, sceptical duck - the caption for the squirrel being simply 'Quack?'.
Then I put the squirrel in a tree, still dressed as a duck. Which made no sense - so i dressed him as a monster, and had him startling another squirrel. Because squirrels are so skittish, i thought it would be funnier if the other squirrel was simply bored.
And then it seemed funny if the monster costume was removed altogether. Apart from the feet.
And I was more-or-less left with the above image. Which i still find funny, although now I'm really far from sure what the joke is.....
The squirrel pretending is called Gary in tribute to Gary Larson.
