Great stuff! I think were I a man, though, I'd get stage fright... that eye one is creeeeepy.

The eye reminds me of Sauron (Lord of the Rings). (Thunder Bowl - One bowl to rule them all.)

Other guys are free to disagree with me, but personally I think the eye is great. One needs a target. (I'm no engineer or hydrologist, but I think that the eye/target could be the secret to the purported anti-spalsh properties of the thunder bowl.)
