I GIVE UP! What is RYU's Avatar???

For months, I have been baffled, and still continue to be... I have looked closely, studied carefully, tried to make sense of it - but I can't figure it out. WHAT IS RYU's Avatar? It looks like a monkey's face coming out of the side of the face of a camel with two or three bananas or misaligned tusks. WHAT the H-E-DOUBLE-HOCKEY-STICKS IS IT???

Looks like a monkey coming out of the back of ALF's neck. Maybe it's another creature from Melmac.

Making it bigger doesn't help.

I still don't think anyone really knows, except maybe RYU.

Re: I GIVE UP! What is RYU's Avatar???

Isn't it just an orangutan hanging upside-down (sideways-ish) with some bananas in its mouth?

Looks like a tormented white bird trying to get a banana. So maybe we got the banana part of the avatar?

Re: I GIVE UP! What is RYU's Avatar???

This is amusing. Some of you have great imaginations.

The photo was actually for sale, but I could get a small version for free.

I'll upload a 480 x 360 picture later.

So I guess the controversy continues.

Re: I GIVE UP! What is RYU's Avatar???

You're a bunch of dipshits.

It's obviously Alpha's cousin.







But really, it's a Orangutan with bananas in it's mouth.

Re: I GIVE UP! What is RYU's Avatar???

The mystery deepens. Even with the new large version of the photo, it looks like a monkey/chimp face embedded in some furry part of an unknown animal. I don't get the orientation of the face and how its associated with what it appears to be a part of or attached to. Too bad we can't get a zoom-out to see what is going on there. But, it definitely doesn't look like a baby orangutan haning off of a mother's back or something like that.

Re: I GIVE UP! What is RYU's Avatar???

Is it a reference to the low-hanging fruit that Ryu gorged on like a crazed orangutan?
