This is a bit of a squick topic to begin with, and the picture isn't horrifying or anything, but I'm not sure if it's the best choice. I can't quite say why, though. It's also a bit hard to tell that the guy on the left is a guy.

Or I am dumb. CHOOSE.
The trope is about pregnant males, which is unusual for most species of animal. It is called Mr. Seahorse because male seahorses do sort of get pregnant. I don't think it is common knowledge that seahorse eggs gestate in a pouch in an adult seahorse male, or that it produces milk to feed the young.

I think it would help the overall clarity of the page if the image was of a male human (or something) being pregnant, and not a seahorse at all.

I thought the male human seahorse was pregnant though. I'm also not quite sure how "squicky" really applies to the image either.

It was breifly changed to this picture before being changed back.

How about the poster from "Junior"?

This is what's on the page currently btw:

Boxer Hockey could probably provide some good images (storyline continues from this strip).
What's precedent ever done for us?

Hiiiiiii!~
I'd rather have Junior over Kingdom Hearts Pregger Slash-fic fanart... That's just wrong...

I, too, like the Junior picture. It helps a lot that it's from a professional medium.

Though, if the objection to the picture is simply the depiction of a pregnant man, we could always go with this, from the examples section.
Belief or disbelief rests with you.

The fact that it's the Governator is hilarious. I vote for Junior.

Definitely the Junior pic.

Junior works.
Mr. Dr.
I like Junior too, the Face Fault of Arnold is hilarious! My only concern about using it, though, is that the exact same used on the article page for Junior- perhaps we could find another picture from that film?

Use the one Foxxy Mod suggested for this one, crop out the title if need be, and then use the one that was on there before for Film.Junior.
A lil' bentô ?
Add my vote for the Junior pic.

F Ine Junior.

This might be an extremely rare case of the same image being the best known choice for two pages.

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

I believe works and tropes are okay with duplicate images.
Oh no! The ass is gone :(

I liked the Kingdom Hearts one, though? And it goes great with the title, in an Incredibly Lame Pun way.

Yeah, but it's full of squicky Fridge Logic. If you try to reason it out logically, then either Sora's a girl, or it was possibly Kairi (or Ariel) that mer-seahorse-Riku slept with. (Ho Yay couldn't do that to him. It just ... couldn't.)

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
