Were there monkeys?
Apparently my birthfamily's family crest should say Don't Forget the Balls.

Nature > Nurture.


Also it is always time for wine.

EDIT: scifantasy informs me that that should be "Ne obliviscaris testes." Anyone wanna design us a coat of arms? I WANT THIS ON COFFEE MUGS.

What else might appear on this coat of arms?

Okay, here's what I whipped up on short notice. Everything on here was either mentioned in recent posts (cats, wine) or is something associated with 'song (writing, books). Two roundels to create the balls, although the cats are also playing with some balls. (You can decide if they are anatomical or not.)

And if anyone wants to try scribbling up their own. :)

This is *brilliant* and everyone is thrilled! We'll confer about additions/substitutions.

I have an illustrator file of this (and the base empty one) so if you have access to Photoshop, you can just open it up in PS at any size you need to colour it or alter it.

Brilliant, though I am now wondering about colors and tinctures....

I'm wondering about the blazon.

Shouldn't the visual be the Medici bezants that evolved into the pawnshop signifier of three gold balls?

(Sneaky Medievalist Dodges, I can haz them too!)

Ah, But that gets too close to being 'Slot Machine'....

Pretty please the conversation that led to this awesome discovery? =:o}
