"Hi, everybody!  It's just me, Uncle Eddie!"

"This isn't my room, it's my son's. He's a baseball guy and a philosophy major."

"He's a stoic, so the decoration in the room is pretty minimal.  I begged him to let me decorate it! I'm an artist...think of what I could have done with it! We could have been in the LA Times! In Architectural Digest!!! This could have been a big deal!!!!!"

"But like I said, he's a stoic.  He likes Heidegger too. I can't stand Heiddeger!  At least he's not an existentialist.  That's such a shallow philosophy."

"Good Grief!!! My hand turned white!!!!!"

"Hmmm, can't go around with white hands! You know what I'm gonna do about that?"

"Yes sir... I'll tell you what I'm gonna do about that....I got the solution right here.  Lemme see....yeah, here it"


Sniff! Sniff!

"Good Lord and Tarnation!!!!!!!!!!"

"That was gross! Sorry! I kid! I kid!"

Those look like some comfortable shoes you got there. I wish my dad would come in my room and act out funny picture stories. All he ever did was steal my dirty magazines when I was at school. The dirty bum.

You know, you should put a book together - Uncle Eddie's Cartoon Expressions. It could be a real life reference for artists, cartoonists, doodlers and just about anyone who likes, well, faces. It could be invaluable - seriously.

That said, if you past me in the street and you weren't pulling a face, I don't think I'd recognise you. I have no idea what you look like 'relaxed'.

Eddie Foometie. Loving it.

"He likes Heidegger too. I can't stand Heiddeger!" Young people seem to love existentialism, for some reason that I've never understood. It's not exactly a warm and fuzzy philosophy. Fuzzy yes, but not warm. Maybe they like the individualism of it.

That Ren doll is hilarious and ugly. I couldn't stop laughing. And you're funny too, Eddie.

Bravo!! Serendipitous story telling at its best. Way to make those photos work for you even when they dont come out as planned (ie. the white hand).

I think you should just take a bunch of random pics pulling faces, cleaning toilets, doing laundry, or whatever and create a story out of it. Much like what you have done but with even less structure initially. I swear you can create some bizarre story out of any thing you do, Eddie!
I like the less predictable stuff like this one.
Alas, you have found your calling.
Great stuff, Eddie!!!

Dang you vamp so funny. You should do some stuff for YouTube, either as a video, or a slideshow with title cards and music and sfx.
BTW, seriously, set up an appointment for Mac/Leopard classes.
