Just a picture of the engineer from Team Fortress 2 with a long-winded caption. Nowhere in the pic does it suggest that he's southern nor a genius. Motion to pull.
serial tweaker, sorry
As much as I love Engie, this is a pretty bad case of JAFAAC. Agree with the pull.
please don't capitalize my handle. I just don't like it.

[up][up] Exact sentiments I have. Love Team Fortress 2, don't think this image works.

No, the other one.
It doesn't show someone who either looks Southern or smart.
Check out my fanfiction!
Interestingly, the edit history shows that a different pic of the engineer was up before, got axed for JAFAAC, and then this one showed up and just sat there for 2 years.

Kill image.
Belief or disbelief rests with you.
In uffish thought
I have beaten the image off the page with a wrench.

Has eleven doctorates. Builds automated turrets, teleporters, and strength-enhancing prosthetic limbs with 1960s technology. Enjoys cornbread and cream gravy.
So, I think we can turn this into a fairly reasonable image.

EDIT: Like so

Kentucky-Fried-Chicken guy anyone? Can't spell his name, and spellcheck is no help.
serial tweaker, sorry
[up] Colonel Sanders? What about him says genius? I mean sure, he was good at marketing, but he's hardly famous for his genius (well, unless you count his culinary talent)

I stand corrected. The examples say that qualifies him. I still don't think he'd make a great image, though: when most people look at the Colonel they don't think "innovator of gastronomic sciences", they think "buckets of chicken".

No, the other one.
Those He Man actionfigures actually illustrate the trope, even if the image leaves some quality lacking.

petrie's image looks pretty good.

One or two more votes for that one and we can run with it.

The suggestion works well enough for me.

Good enough; it's up, potholed, and tagged. Caption or no? I was thinking something like "And as y'all can see, the smaller static co'fishint means this engine'll go lickety-split." or something like that.

Approved, lifted to page, tagged and potholed.

ETA: Oh, there was an edit collision.

I forgot to star this one...hearing nothing else, 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.
