Yes, I read too much Terry Pratchett.

However, I was thinking.

Based on the stories we believe as kids (Jack Frost, Easter Bunny, Santa, Death etc etc), which anthropomorphic personification would you like to be, and why?

I'd say Santa, 'cos then if I found something in that sack I wanted, I could just take it, and the little ****ty kid would never know.

Anthropomorphism I believe describes humanistic traits in non human entities, much like personification, but extended outside the literary realm.

There is a word for what you are describing, but I just can't think of it right now.

No such thing as reading too much Terry Pratchett.

Anthropomorphism is the assignment of a human like character to a phenomenon.

So Athropomorphic Personification is the actually solid realisation of this character.

And no, I guess there is no such thing as too much Pratchett!

You could be like Robot Santa, and just decide the kid had been naughty.

That is, of course, if you're comfortable with the whole massacaring people part of being Robot Santa.

So then hypothetically speaking, in what form would the anthropomorphism of mad nunchaku AND guitar skill materialize/realize?

Jolly good.
Anyway, as far as stories we believed as children... I was a gullible little git, so I have a pretty wide choice.

There isn't one, as it's not a widely held belief.

Many people believe in the idea of something like Death, and so it takes on a form in the human consciousness.

Something like you described is pretty much unique to you, so it will take the form you give it.

However, let's keep it to the obvious ones!

Hmmmmm...... So in essence, it is a statement that does not bring in any accreditation to justify his claim, disregards the views of others, and is universally ambiguous? Also disregards the existence of the only place to argue these issues and brings them to an unrelated thread? In other words, an attempt to be funny when, in fact, it's about as funny as saying "LOL GEORGE BUSH IS STUPID"?

OH I see what you did there.
