    Gee, I don't know. I stand in wonder of such creative thoughts!

    For some reason, though, I'm getting a They Might Be Giants earworm–ya know that song, Particle Man?

    Particle man, particle man
    Doing the things a particle can
    Whats he like? its not important
    Particle man

    Is he a dot, or is he a speck?
    When hes underwater does he get wet?
    Or does the water get him instead?
    Nobody knows, particle man

    Triangle man, triangle man
    Triangle man hates particle man
    They have a fight, triangle wins
    Triangle man

    Universe man, universe man
    Size of the entire universe man
    Usually kind to smaller man
    Universe man

    Hes got a watch with a minute hand,
    Millenium hand and an eon hand
    When they meet its a happy land
    Powerful man, universe man

    Person man, person man
    Hit on the head with a frying pan
    Lives his life in a garbage can
    Person man

    Is he depressed or is he a mess?
    Does he feel totally worthless?
    Who came up with person man?
    Degraded man, person man

    Triangle man, triangle man
    Triangle man hates person man
    They have a fight, triangle wins
    Triangle man

    Perhaps it would be fun to illustrate that song…

    I apologize. BUI again…

    I think this is the Idea-of-a-Lifetime for new state-of-the-art bathroom decor. By 2012, no bathroom will be without whiteboard somewhere in the vicinity of the WC. Just wondering, though, what happens when you shower? Has no one yet showered long enough to cause Pyramid Man to sag or drip? This is a mystery to me.

    Hey, I thought of the same song Actonbell did, but I couldn't remember who sang it. Behold, the awesome that is Actonbell!

    I love easels, I wish I could have one in every room.

    Thing Two said he thought the phone would ring next, and the History channel is calling to invite pyramid man to star in a show, but of course, he can't get to the phone.

    I can only imagine he's thinking, "Man… something sphinx in there!"

    Holy crap (no pun intended this time)… but I just realized you live in Duluth. I was born and raised there and the rest of my family still lives there. We're gonna need to chat. For reals.

    Actonbell screwed my brain for a coherent comment, submit your complaints accordingly

    I can't believe someone else also had a They Might Be Giants moment. This post made me smile.

    "If he's underwater, does he get wet, or does the water get him instead? Nobody knows, particle man."

    And there you have the soundtrack of my senior year of college.

    Hi Jocelyn! Wow.Pyramid Man the Bathroom Reject.Life's tough when you can't shape up.I used to play school with the easel too, and, I mean this, the excitement used to send me to the toilet. Now that Im all grown and a teacher in real life, it still gives me the s…s.!

  9. Prefers Her Fantasy Life says:

    I love the idea!! Think of the Haiku that could be inspired and written in the bathroom.

  10. Jazz says:

    I'd have pyramid man cut open the door and enter the house for all new and improved adventures.

  11. phd in yogurtry says:

    Pyramid Man's hot, buff girlfriend, Ms. Isosceles, saunters across the carpet. "I ordered the carpet, Pyramid Man. Now whatchoo gonna do about it?"

  12. Green Girl in Wisconsin says:

    Oh now that is truly brilliantly wonderful! I'm inspired to put up a drawing board in our bathroom now…or paint one wall with chalkboard paint.

  13. secret agent woman says:

    That's very cute. But I'm wondering if your husband is spending a little too much time in the bathroom?

  14. lime says:

    i think the next dilemma would be the shock mr pyramid feels when he notices a new piece of artwork has been hung on that bare wall. dammit, mr. pyramid hates baroque art! what's wrong with a nice bit of cubism?

  15. heartinsanfrancisco says:

    Can't say for sure since I've never met the dude but taking a wild guess, Pyramid Man might be vexed at all the shit he has to take in that room.

    I once created a cartoon superhero named Assman but then, being a girl, wasn't sure where to go from there.

  16. Lisa @ Boondock Ramblings says:

    INside the room is Mrs. Triangle with Mr. Square and Mr. Triangle can't figure out how they got in there first of all and what Mrs. Triangle sees in Mr. Square.

    After all. . . he's a FREAKING SQUARE!

  17. Michelle Wells Grant says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh dear, my sides ache! Me thinks Pyramid Man should call up buddy, Pyramid Drywall Man, grab a beer or few, and talk him into knocking out a pyramid shaped doorway.

  18. Patois says:

    In his next adventure, he wonders how to board a plane to go to Egypt to search for his roots.

  19. chelle says:

    hehehe this is awesome! You should market a bathroom easel! You would be rich! Rich I tell you rich!

  20. Midlife Jobhunter says:

    What a grand idea. An easel in the bathroom. Can I steal that? Where was that idea when I was potty training three boys?

    Pyramid Man's Next Scenario? How about having him teach everyone how to clean the bathroom? Boring, I know.

    Not very creative at the moment.

  21. ds says:

    Love this!! Will definitely be back to check on the Adventures of Pyramid Man.

  22. Stephanie says:

    Ooooh, mayhaps a picture of pyramid man on the can, drawing a picture of rectangle man puzzling out a triangle door. And snickering. Would he pool boxers or briefs at his ankles is the REAL question.
