Mine is an edit of the "Announcing..." one from Action Cat. I inserted a few extra frames specific to DC.

App wins, hands down! (Though you should verify that those images that cat is Googling are SFW before handing it to her.)
Tuna.

Yes, the toilet paper cat came from that site, too.

I can't get off my head the thought that "That scary taskbar girl" is something I said too ;)

Everybody says that, except my dad & my daughter...but they both have taskbars just like mine.  ;D

Michael Rainey has an avatar of a famous singer, but I don't know who it is:

My mother absolutely loved the singing from that kid...and I'm still traumatized by it, mainly because his songs were played a lot in the house where I spent my very early childhood. Didn't he become a 'schl├Ąger' singer (Heino) after his throat grew a beard?

Anywayz, thanks for a nasty flashback  :(

Ha! Sorry about that. But it's a dead match. All that hair. His shampoo costs must have been extraordinary.

My last 3 avatars have followed an evolving theme...
Started with the gkak meme:

next:
domothumb.jpg
and now:
avatar_209.png

Do I win if the next one continues the evolution?

marvellous, Cody will be glad to know his antics are appreciated.

i think i'll have to nominate p3lb0x's avatar too - but then i may be biased on that one.

I'm noticing a number of new avatars around here lately.

Could this topic have anything to do with it? ;) ;D

Not at all. Like, totally, not at all. Seriously.
... Allright, you got me. But as a matter of fact, my previous avatar was outdated, and i thought i might as well update. ;)

Not knocking it. Change is good. Plus, it's always fun to see what people come up with. I've got a fairly boring and obvious avatar. Glad to see there are much more creative types than me here! ;D

I'm normally not a fan of animated gifs - they usually just too fast and fidgety for my taste
but I liked this one

I find it hard to "judge" the ones I see daily/very often - I still like most of them which is great praise really (honestly :p)
