Crying Raisins

CraftZine recently featured this banner with slogan "No Theory, No Cry" (for which I have no explanation for unless it's about not having to write theory and being happy about it?  Meh.) Reader Jen can only see one thing: "It looks like the girl is crying raisins." I'm not sure how one would go about crying raisins unless they had some sort of fruit drying machine made with sunshine behind their eyes but then wouldn't the sunshine hurt your eyes? I mean, even if you wore sunglasses the sun would bounce off the inside of your sunglasses and back into your eyes, especially if they were the super cheap kind of sunglasses made by little kids in China, but if they were the good kind made wherever good stuff is made then you would be protecting everyone else.  In which case, you would be a hero.  This is a lot like that drunk conversation my husband had with his best friend when we were at a pool bar in Mexico and the two of them planned to buy all of Mexico and put a dome over top of it and that way no one would have to worry about sunscreen anymore.* Of course according to my great-grandmother (may God rest her soul): "There was no problem with that ozone layer until the astronauts went up there and broke the damn sky!" notheorynocry Thanks Jen! {source} {photo source} *They also planned on moving the Dallas Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins there to play against each other live, every day.  Silly boys.

    First, crying raisins would hurt like a mofo unless you had enormous tear ducts!
    Second, wtf is up with the girl’s nose, or lack thereof? Eep.

    I’m just going to say that “raisins” are also code for small rodent poop. Which looks to be pretty accurate.

    I’m in a film theory class right now and I think that picture is a fairly accurate representation of how it makes me feel… ; )
