Thank you for forgiving my anatomical drawing skills...I've decided to make the skull more human and less alien :)

I think it'd be great if he were smiling - the punchline is funny...so perhaps he should be laughing as well?!

Comment and suggestions always welcome! Is this funny or too creepy? Should the illustration be more stylized? or the type more playful?
