Poor Image: Entry Pimp get usage counts

This is a title.
No problems with the picture in and of itself, but it's kinda small. Could it be replaced with a bigger version?

The madness is catching.

I don't get the image at all beyond the added necklace apparently making him a "pimp". I guess that's the joke, but it's kind of weak.

[up] If there's some other layer to this besides that, I'm not getting it either...I'm tempted to just say cut it.

EDIT: Did some research, and the guy in the pic isn't connected to the concept in any way...definitely not helping the page in any way.

Motion to pull

Fails as a joke, adds nothing to the page.

Replaced with that (shrunk to 350 px tall); don't object to it being pulled anyway, though.

Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.

[up][up]Seconded.

It's really tempting to suggest a character from some random work and state in the caption that the work is being Entry Pimped and the character has nothing to do with the page. I doubt it'd work, however (being an extreme case of JAFAAC, though that would be the whole point), and of course someone else would want a different character.

^ Do you mean like the page image for Just a Face and a Caption? Hm...
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.

What if we had a screenshot of the related to page of a Trope Overdosed work. We can crop the part the says:

[[orange:Namespace/Work]] found in [[orange:x]] articles, excluding discussions

Being a Whovian, might I suggest Doctor Who? There are currently over 9000 wicks. The caption can be something like "Entry Pimps at work".

I know that having a ton of wicks doesn't necessarily equal Entry Pimp but it can. A couple of tropers couldn't have added 9000 wicks by themselves but if that image doesn't communicate the idea, then at the very least pull the current image.
EDIT: Ah ha! I got it! I got it! I think.... Here. A Cracked.com article. Look at the Buffy Board example. Could we use one of those pictures of that crazy poster? Maybe? Hmm, thinking about it now, it's a so-so idea...

Momentum, a function of mass and velocity, is conserved between portals. In layman's terms: speedy thing goes in, speedy thing comes out.
[up][up][up] Entry Pimping is not bad, for the record. Crosswicking is something you are supposed to do. tongue
Rhymes with "Protracted."

Clock's up; locking for inactivity/lack of consensus. No further action is to be taken based on this thread.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
