I remember reading an interview with John Byrne where he specifically references this issue, pointing out that the idea of a monstrous Thing is, by definition, ridiculous, because the Thing's supposed to be a monster (at least in appearance), and that by this point, he'd been rendered more and more like a big orange teddy bear!
I have been a Navy journalist, word processor, graphic designer, medical assisting student, cook, and truck driver, and am currently an eBay seller as well as an employee at a big retail store. I have been and always will be into comics, sf, tv, cartoons, monsters, oldies rock, and lots of other stuff.
