And Carlson steals Anad's crown
good job ^O^
The tiger tail is still sticking in the mouth of the croc. funny.
Someday there would be a cartoon that depicts a computer swallowing a croc.
And an alien swallowing a computer.
I also get it it still looks dumb
Ah very nice! It makes sense now. :cheers:
"If you could be an animal, which animal would you be?"
"It seems to have a good life. A crocodile just lies there and relaxes... and it can more or less kill any other animal... Crocodile, without any doubt."
True story - a few years ago a journalist asked Carlsen if he had to, what animal would he choose to be, and he replied Crocodile - "it just sits there waiting for the next victim to show up"
I've read a lot of coverage of Carlsen and I didn't know that his nickname was "The Crocodile."
Where did he pick that up? Doesn't make sense for a Norwegian. And if his nickname isn't "The Crocodile" then why not just stick with a Viking? Surely would have been more direct.
Especially since tigers have been known to attack, kill, and eat crocodiles.
@Cannman: Because of Norway. There are plenty of crocs in Norway.
Can someone help me understand why Magnus is a crocodile?
OMG! MAGNUS CARLSEN ATE HOBBES!!!
If it the croc was simply taking away the crown - it would be funny. But now it's simply dumb.
Well said MrMars
oh god...dying....too creative even with the croc face looking like carlsen.
Personally liked the Thor and Ganesh representations of the two.
no i get it, i still find it dumb
Dude, don't you get it? Carlsen, the croc, eats the tiger, Anand. Hinted by Indian guards wearing turbans.
