    When does a scroll cease to be a scroll and just become a lump?


    Some of the scrolls remind me of elf shoes.

    These are ghastly! I'm going to have to go in for therapy, or medication, or both.

    You guys are pathetic. Then again, most elitists don't have much of a sense of humor.
    These instruments are like ugly puppies ... how can you not love 'em?

    The scariest thing about these is that I have to assume that the people building them were serious!
    I don't want to meet any of them.

    Of course they were "serious" ... they were doing their best with what they had.
    I hope I can say the same about my endeavors.

    I guess this thread would inspire the opposite of scroll envy.
