Daily Deviation

Given 2006-01-10
At first sight, Staring Contest by ~Cyril Van Der Haegen is a winterly fantasy image of our old friend the Grim Reaper minding his cold business in the woods. Until the point you discover this little white bunny. This combination makes this artwork a hilarious mix of literally black humor and deadly seriousness. I for one am not sure who is going to win, but if they keep it up long enough, this staring contest in the freezing cold will never end...

Also viewable as our Print of the Day. ( Featured by MidnightExigent )

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!


Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.

Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.


Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im sorry

I met the real one..  It was almost identical, but black robe, and no blade, no hands nor face..  Seems it didn't need a blade..  it had extreme cosmic connections.. I stuck a claw to my head, and my brain started freezing solid..  I tossed a rock at it..  The rock didn't go through it..  I shouted Wait!"..  It waited..  I shouted "Now Go and Not Return!"..  It sank into the ground exactly at where my finger pointed to the ground..   Seems that demonic soul-eating monster can only kill you if you let it..   It's weird science...

Correction:  "It stuck a claw into my head"..  You had to have been there..  It's really weird to feel your brain turning to ice from the centre to outward..  I suppose it was feeding..?

That depends if Death has anything to peep with to start with.
If he has hollow eyesockets, the rabbit wins by default, because it would be like having a staring contest where on participant just keeps his eyes closed at all times.

So, Death has took a fools bargain.. and probably left this rabbit with his new title, The Rabbit of Caerbannog, for besting him in wits.

I tried to draw this this in pencil  when I was ten  but my skills were not very good.
This picture really impressed me then, and it took my breath away this time.
Great work.!!
I think I've fainted. +fav
