Does Not Illustrate: Mickey Mousing get usage counts

Would like to arrest precedent and say "if the image is really good, we might overlook the fact that it's not actually an example." The Snoopy images are really good.

^Going to agree with that here. Only a minority of people will know that.

Personally, I'd take the images in 24 and flip the order. Slow -> fast, juxtaposed against one another, like below.

Not sure which I'd choose if I had to pick one over the other, though.

I like both. Didn't "see it" before the swap.

Combined (and resized second slightly, so it matches first): [1]

[up][up] Yep, like that.

serial tweaker, sorry
Not to be too nitpicky, but what happened there? The original strips all seem clearer to me than the uploaded images.

Here's another version of Rodney's (second Snoopy resized to match the first, flipped order) that I made straight from the strips: [1]

Though I'm fine with Rodney's image in 29, I like this one a little better visually.

([down] to clarify, what I meant by clearer was 'not as pixelated', not clearer content-wise. I get that we had to crop them because they're single-panels. Sorry about the confusion)

please don't capitalize my handle. I just don't like it.

[up]The original ones were single-panel, so we had to crop out the majority in order to maintain Fair Use. The two segments from different cartoons have been combined since they do sort of work together. Thanks for the cleaner version.

I am also happy that if an image doesn't have to be an example if it still illustrates the trope better than alternatives if there are any. This has bugged me for some time.

[down]Of course; it is still an important consideration. It is not, however, a dealbreaker should there be no other image.

Totally, just don't want that to turn into "it doesn't matter if it's not an example", because that isn't true.

Bump...are we going with 29 or 32?
 36 jkbeta, Thu, 30th Aug '12 6:39:58 AM from right behind you Relationship Status: You cannot grasp the true form
Either works for me. 32 seemed to have slightly better image quality, though.

No, the other one.
32.

I lean toward 32 myself.

I'd vote for 32

Yup, 32.

This one's lagged long enough; if someone will put up 32, that'd be appreciated. Caption or no?
In uffish thought
Added. Vague caption idea: "Does he go trampolining when they play the Colonel Bogey March?"

With no consensus on a caption, let's lock up and move on.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
