MARCO? by Diana-Huang MARCO? by Diana-Huang
GO WORLD!!! Jia Yeo!! (Go go go! in Chinese) the audience has been yelling that in all the games for all the countries.

Been following the Olympics everyday...online and on TV.

Watching Micheal Phelps victories as they unfolded. He is insane! This painting is for him! Been working on it since Thursday...oh about 28 hours.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
This idea initially planted with the Jeff Foxworthy song "Redneck Games": [link]

It was released before the Atlanta Summer Games. It joked about how the rednecks were going to screw it up. One of them was: "having to cancel water polo after the first couple of horses drown."

I am going to go swimming at the pool tomorrow again. I love the water. Water polo is another game that is worthy of greater respect. It is intense and brutal at times.

I love me some swimming centaur. Man, everyone says centaur can't swim, or bend or move. But we, we make it possible. Frankly, because centaur aren't horses, they move and are flexible like humans...

Awesome part is they're in different colors. Just like humans..

Kudos to you...

Thank you very much! Yeah... the human imagination is pretty limited for most people... they stick to the old myths and ideas too firmly... makes no room for new ideas.

Tell me about it. I Roleplay in a Mud (Ateraan). Guess what race I am?

Also guess how many stupid questions I have to anwser? How do you sit? Can you swim? Tis endless my friend. But I appreciate the inspiration. Now I too may aspire fast, limber, swimming hoofed (as well as pawed) quadrupeds...

Merci... :sushi:

Sugar (Marilyn Monroe): Water polo?
Isn't that terribly dangerous?

Junior (Tony Curtis): I'll say. I had
two ponies drowned under me.


~ "Some Like It Hot," 1959

(Can't believe nobody else has quoted that movie here in over a year and a half {g})

I would really love to see your version of this event at the Olympics! Have to wonder if they'd pass the genetic tests ... Hilarious and perfectly executed.

Heh...how strange to find this! I wrote a story about an OC of mine who turned into a centaur (careful what you wish for!) and two centaur friends and a woman played "Marco Polo" in a water-filled quarry called "Norton's Folly". It just wasn't WATER POLO, but this reminded me of it. Three taurians and a human "horsing around" :lol:

awesome-how imaginative! they look so human on top, but it's so cool to see that they're centaurs underneath, and so alive and realistic! maybe their legs would paddle better if all four were human instead of hooved-but that would be taking it a step, actually four steps, further. beautifully done!

1. Phelps is insane! I saw into the future and he gets even crazier!
2. I have always wondered how a centaur would swim.
3. sure it can be brutal. You should see the photo of my buddy in the yearbook, swimming for the ball with blood pouring out his nose.
