What does a giant, fire-breathing platypus have to do with anything? You silly, pathetic fool... it has everything to do with something! Er, anything to do with everything! Um... everything to do with everything? Yeah, that one.
The signs have been there since the beginning. Tedd's androgyny? Giant platypus. Grace's spontaneous love for Tedd? Giant platypus. Elliot's knight in shining armor complex? Giant platypus. Lesbians, transformation, prohibition? Giant platypus, giant platypus, giant platypus.
So, as you can see, this giant platypus defines not only the culmination of El Goonish Shive, but the culmination of mankind, the universe, and time as we know it.
That, or I had a headache and just scanned whatever looked nifty in an old sketchbook I found while cleaning. But I'm betting it's the whole culmination of all things dealie.
