Everyone Gets Atrophy, part II

Yesterday I received the following email from my friend Andrea. The show she is referring to is an amateur art exhibition in Lancaster county, PA. I wrote about last year's edition here.

I thought I would send you my favorite titles from this year's "If you pay your entry fee your painting is in" show that we took you to last year.

"Untitled Little Boy" (Not exactly untitled then, is it?)
"Lady in Cage"
"Latte Conversation" (A painting of two ladies talking, because ladies love lattes almost as much as being in cages)
"Oscar Wilde Twice"
"Nurturing Earth Mother, She's All We've Got"
"Stacking the Lobsters"
"The Nose Licker!" (My favorite)
Thank you, Andrea.

It's hard to pick a favorite, but this morning I'm leaning towards "Stacking the Lobsters."

I'm voting for the Nose Licker. Is it someone with an extremely flexible tongue such that they can lick their own nose? Is it someone with a nose fetish who goes around licking other people's noses?

or is it simply a dog?

(C) is correct but I like your second guess better.

You know, if I ever start a band, I'm going to call them Stacking the Lobsters, and our first album will be I Am Vindicated, Things I've Stolen.

It just has a nice ring to it.
