World's simplest puzzle

I was going to title this "His 'n' Hers" but that sounded a bit lewd. It's just nice when things fit together, and the temporary satisfaction of completion is achieved. Jeez, now I'm getting clinical. Anyway, go in one puzzle piece and come out the other, and you're done. No subtext here. Really.

More junk food inspired art

This started while I was eating a rare (I swear!) meal at KFC last Monday. Drew the shape of the plate freehand (a bit carelessly, I admit), then started designing a pattern around and behind it. I don't know if "Life Tastes Better" with KFC, but I kinda like this result.

Right up the road, I saw...a donut shop! When the cosmos speaks, it's good to listen. Tastes pretty good, too.

Highly recommended; friendly service:

"If you have only two alternatives, choose the third."

I read a very interesting article (pamphlet? manifesto?) online this morning, currently titled "The Revolutionary Pleasure of Thinking for Yourself" (http://deoxy.org/rst.htm) which got me thinking along these lines:
