How Mark greets me when I mouse over emails from him in Gmail:
It disturbs me too, but my 10 y/o niece suggested the pic for me via GMail. It was a cool, self initiated use of her first digital camera with a sprinkle of social networking, so I accepted the psychopath pic to serve as encouragement for her. More on how to suggest pics here: http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=35528&query=Gmail+picture&topic=0&type=f
I think it’s totally appropriate, both a surprise for me, and a surprise on your face.
This is hilarious!
