Would rather look like Bob. Not into cheesy unless it smells great.
...and of all people I wouldn't have thought that you were a sworn member of the irony police.
However, yes I stand guilty. I admit it.
I can send a sworn statement and make amends, but, you are going to be really disappointed when you see my picture and i am sure that you will then request that an empty Bob be returned to my profile image.

I have a very similar story, finding this site around 12 years ago via Google and joining for the newsletters. (Thanks Kent for the daily zingers! )
Also like you, I spend the vast majority of my time here in the Lounge enjoying the wit, sarcasm, and mostly interesting conversations, thoughts, and rants of the cast here. There are some really smart and witty people here!
