Showed me an ink-blot \ Looked just like a hornets' nest

I agree that the graphic style of the images in the Thematic Apperception Test have dated badly and have that "self-taught artist stuck in the 1930s" look. I will further concede that there is probably a market for a new series of projective psych. test images, drawn in a more timeless style, for discriminating connoisseurs.

Another Kiwi assured me that it would all be ink-blots that look like beautiful butterflies. "And pairs of dancers," tigris added.

I am beginning to regret letting them talk me into posing.

Also I cannot see what any of these tests have to do with maintaining and operating cinema equipment.

Well it looks like the doppelganger's trick of cutting off his own head while stabbing himself in the leg has worked to perfection in distracting the mark.

The force is strong here obliquan.
The people at posn. E show just how vital awareness is in the Outback. Whilst they play a roughlove game of "The Native and His Boomerang", Sammy Snake has had it away with their emu egg dessert and has found the surprise skull, and thus gets to make a wish.
You can't relax out there, people, it will hurt you.

I am not sure quite what is happening up at F but the general intention seems to be to advertise Viagra.

That kid totally wants to have sex with that violin. It's not weird to think that, right?

"Devil lady," sheesh. Her name is Doloris, it tells you right there.

I'm pleased to see our reptilian maraca delivery service("Rattle Snakes") seems to be working out.

Is your first image from such a test? - shirley not, I would think... it's ambiguous but way too artistic. - the old crone is lined like a baboon, I'd love to see the colours in the original - and the hero is of unassigned gender, knows something's up but looks for it in the wrong direction... am I close?

Oh no. We cannot divulge the sources of our allegorical woodcuts and emblemata and so forth. That information is all on a need-to-know basis.

This is not the first time we have used this particular source and it probably will not be the last.

But yes indeedy, that top image is yoinked from the Thematic Apperception Test. The others were all TOO FECKIN' DEPRESSING.

I think the originals are all black-&-white.
