I stole this forum game from the StraightDope.com message boards (apparently, it's gained quite a bit of traction there!). Basically, what you need to do is find and post an image in which each successive integer is visible -- for example, the person after me should post an image that somehow incorporates the number 2, the next person an image that incorporates a 3, and so on. Ideally, these images should also be amusing, small-medium in size and safe for work. Let's see how high we can count.

I'll start:

Can I do two in a row? I'll remove it if it's against the rules.

You can if they're good. Those are good.

Seems I'm the only one interested in this, which surprises me a bit. Ah well.

If nobody does the obvious 15, I think this thread can be closed.

By the way, why do Meakin's all appear as links to start with before turning into pictures?

Well, I mean you can't even manage one in a row, but you know what I mean.

Too right. And it needs to continue for at least a few more years so that you can point out that the image that I posted for "5234" was the same one that I posted for "963" five years previously, because you notice that sort of thing. Of course, I will respond that it was entirely my intention that the same image was used and in any case it's a different image, because of a small detail that you didn't notice (because I'll have edited it in afterwards).

Then after that we'll decide that it wasn't worth arguing about and get on our hoverboards and go to Mars or something, this being the future after all.
