Well I guess I got a reason to get a decent avatar. Wanted an animated version of this but the avatar server is shitting the bed, and the gif was like 3 MBs.
You have been visited by the Foot of Shame, an arbitrary profile restriction earned by users who do not select an avatar for themselves. The restriction on setting your own avatar lasts for one month, after which, you need to private message @yawning sneasel to receive the privilege to change your avatar again. The privilege will not be returned without asking.
