Is it me, or every time that I see US ice dance skater Meryl Davis, I think that the Avatar animators stole her looks for the Na’vi creatures in the movie?

Sure looks like a little nose job, war paint and dreadlocks could have made Meryl the sister of Neyteri! The TV pictures are even better, and I wish Neyteri would have smiled for a picture or two! But maybe if Meryl had shown up in the crazy blue jump suits worn by Ukrainian pairs skaters Tatiana Volosozhar and Stanislav Morozov at these same Olympics, it might have convinced you!

Hey, isn’t there a gala show or something after the competition is over? Meryl should maybe come out in that get up and a little blue face paint! She and skating partner Charlie White could do an Avatar epic!
Or maybe do one for the World Championship in Turin next month? Probably too soon but certainly not for next winter! I think they’d have the crowd behind them!
But listen, Meryl, Avatar made a ton of money! There’s no reason a little of it couldn’t be yours! I think you’ve got a great case they stole your beauty for those creatures in that mega-hit movie!
Maybe even better, ask for a starring role in the sequel! When the avatar comes out into the real world!
And takes up ice dancing! No, just kidding! 🙂
Congrats on the silver medal at the ice dance in the Olympics, Meryl and Charlie.
Fantastic show, but Virtue & Moir were just a tad better.
These 73 avatars and buddy icons are of penguins. They are square, at 96×96 pixels each, and should be usable for many, if not most applications allowing avatars and buddy icons. They were as big as I could generally find them
These graphics came from the original files I collected in making the Penguins Facebook friends tagging meme poster, separating out the Penguins posters, along with some additional pics not used. To get the icons, please:

Here are some more Facebook tagging meme pictures I haven’t been able to find anywhere else easily, so I’ve put them on my blog. I created the Family Guy version, with relatively few characters compared to others I created thus far. However, I was only able to find graphics of those 8 characters with white backgrounds and that’s enough work to assemble them, label them and such for me on one post. It’s for the Family Guy fans, which I don’t think are quite at the level of the other meme themes (see links below), but I’ll let the download stats speak for themselves. It’s also for people who don’t have time to tag 25 people, or daring ones who not only have their family as friends, particular Parents, but will also tag them! This is also the first time I created a pictorial Facebook meme with personality traits rather than straight character names.
The other two meme pictures here are Disney characters and Penguins (somebody need to enlighten me on the cartoon franchise from which they came). The first penguins version I created. The others I only slightly optimized ratios and edited out one extreme expletive that was simply gratuitous, and it wasn’t even funny. I’m glad someone did the personality labeling for Disney characters because I sure didn’t want to try. I had thought about a Disney set but passed it up due to too many characters without prominent distinguishing personality traits. As for the Penguins set, not knowing anything about it really, it’s just included. Here’s how you get any of these graphics for Facebook:
