(Laughing...) Absolutely wonderful! I had some good laughs, and was surprised over how sweet people really look when they are smiling. Even when not the prettiest in the bunch (Laughing...)

Some of the pics are definitely photo-shopped.

No?

Maybe. But some of them definitely SHOULD be.

I'm still trying to rub my eyes, and make sure I'm not seeing it wrong. I even double checked that my monitor wasn't acting up....

Talk about "unfortunate" lighting, in some to those. (Laughing...)

I mean, Hakurozan (bless him) looks like one those "If they mated" things on Conan O'brien. That one has got to be messed with, doesn't it? Otherwise he should sue the photographer for slander.

I'm not making fun either, but...come on, that's just not right.

they don't look photoshoped to me ....

note that these are snapshots from a book so don't be very critical of the result. I didn't use a scanner (because i don't have one), so i just took pics of the pics .... (Blushing...)

(Blushing...) A really fun bunch. Iwakiyama suitable for framing. Wakanosato had more hair then. I notice things like that. Bet you can't find one of Rijicho Kitanoumi.

You know, we all like to crack jokes about him, but to be honest, Iwakiyama has one of the most interesting faces I have ever seen in my life. I think I will do a painting.

I haven't cracked any jokes but I know what you mean - he IS funny looking.

I think it's obvious that I agree about his interesting face (see avatar).

If you do a painting, I will be very pleased to see it.

Homasho inspired Komanchero talk grew a lot, and so moved to its own topic here.

A bit ;-)

He looks a bit like people who have cleft lip and/or palate. Almost lacking bonestructure for the nose, and I think I can see a bit of a scar on his right lip. Does anyone know if that is the case?
