  1. I left X'ed out on the table at home and when I came back my 9 year old had placed this Tin Tin comic next to it. I thought it was a good observation too. Not just the 'egg' pattern, but the single figure looking at it.

    In the Tin Tin story Tin Tin thinks the mushroom is an egg when it first starts to grow.
