On pictures and words

If 1 picture > 1000 words, could you watch 473 pictures and say you've read The Lord of the Rings?

Could you take 50 snapshots, and claim to have "won" NaNoWriMo? 

Could you query an agent, pretending that you only took 80 pictures, while you actually sneaked (sorry, Tami, snuck) an additional 12 into the album?

I think not. Though sometimes a picture is worth quite a lot of words. Like this one: 

By my count, it is worth 179 words. 

You'll have to swing by Burrowers, Books & (today more than ever) Balderdash to find out which words.

Clever thought, Cruella! I just need a few more pictures and I'm done...

*stands sternly*
*sees 'snuck'*
*breathes easier*

I'm pretty darned sure my pictures are only worth a few dozen words... I will stick with writing or other people's art.

Hmmm...I'll have to think about this one. :)
