My Mad Men Avatar Is Awkward And Drunk

In honor of Season 3 of Mad Men, AMC has just launched one of those "make your own avatar" applications. I did it, with some unintentionally amusing results.

At the end, the application lets you choose from a variety of settings and unceremoniously plops you into them.
