gayer than the gayest gay that ever gaye

Okay so I'm using this icon for the context

I watched the Star Trek movie this evening. A: I rather enjoyed it. B: The first moment we met Sulu in the movie, I whipped out my best George Takei imitation and said 'Oh my'.
I do a very good George Takei imitation, it bears note.

okay, you want to commission this person.

So about a year ago, I told a friend 'oh no! your cat's sick! I'll throw money at making sure she gets better, because I like you and I can afford to cover her vet bills!'
Shortly after, he said 'right, I need money, so tell me what you'd like in an original artwork!' And I said 'I got canned from my job, but how about this- and the money I spent to make sure your beloved cat was OK? Call that the commission fee.'

His response was this.

He was also kind enough to mail it to me on his own dime, since I'm going 'AAAAH WHERE IS MY INCOME AAAAAH'. I got it earlier today.

So he's djinni. Why haven't you asked him for a commission? Me, I'm stunningly happy with the commission I threw him.
