I guess I ought to join in this " My First Ascii Art " game because
someone requested it.

I tend to be a collector and diddler rather than a creative ascii-
artist but I have done a few originals and I think  " The Lamprey "
was my first ever original.


Someone was trying to create a new newsgroup named "alt.lampreys"
and opponents said the idea was stupid.

I had to find out what a lamprey actually was because it was being
said that lampreys liked biting cows. Anyway, here is my Very Own
Lamprey of mid-1993 vintage...


                          _,-,,__,- ~~~~~- _ _
        _,,,,           (                    ~~-_
     ,'''   O ',        '~',__   _ _,,,'''--_    -_
   _'_ _ _      ',            ''' '         ~-_    -

  ~"'"'"'"~  ',  /  ',                         _-   _'

                 ',                             _-   -cfbd-
      lamprey       '-,-,.,_.,_, _ ,,_ , -'-'-''


And the interpretation that Colin did of me as a response to
Joan's try...got to love this man :))
