Rather strange. Are they used in psychological testing?

I'm convinced these people (shrinks, et al) make this stuff up as they go along. I'm supposed to buy into the "one size fits all" idea?

You're absolutely right honey. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. :cheese:

And sometimes a cigar is the fulfillment of a desire to bite and light a phallic shaped object

@FBS: That editorial exercise lumbered me up.

How the heck is a puppy sitting between 2 empty 'parental' dog houses anal sadism?

Because it costs more than the simple desire to own a puppy.

@aruvcan: I say it as Blacky digging his own little spot between the parent houses, but the title makes me think it's Blacky kicking dirt on the pile after taking a dump between the houses. I think these are closer to Rorschach tests where you see whatever you want in the images.

For me the 9th image is Blacky realizing that religion is all stick and no carrot when he recognizes the "angel" as being more like a demon than anything saintly. The 6th image is obviously about how blind faith in authority leads to horrible betrayal. The others just seem to show why being an adolescent sucks.

Would someone pay for a set of authentic Blacky Cards?
