The Lesser Kiki?
The illustration shown above was the winner in a monster-drawing contest sponsored by the UK's Guardian newspaper. The creature depicted is known as the "Lesser Kiki." According to its creator, the beast "attaches itself to a banana tree and waits for a human/animal to pluck and eat one of the bananas on its back. When this happens, the creature’s energy is drained away for the rest of the day and cannot move. And another two bananas grow on its back."
Should we be offended? Flattered? Confused?
