Fire Up Again

A certain zombie insisted in comments on my earlier masterpiece of photoshoopery that it was deficient because the bassoon's mouthpiece was being used as a trigger and not being blown into as it should.

  3. that orange glow was supposed to be fire? I thought it was artsy-fartsiness.

  4. Wow, you're cranky. I recall that I added the wisp of smoke with MUCH less grumping. Even if it now looks like a 5 foot tall bong, rather than a bassoon.

    1. I'm not cranky. And looking like a bong is a feature, not a bug, man.
