Found via No-sword, the original pictures used in the wug test.
I’ve linked to the Wikipedia article above, but the short version is that these pictures were used to test whether children can apply grammatical rules to nonsense words: can they correctly form a plural (or past tense, or whatever) of a word they’ve never heard before.
I mainly posted it because I find the pictures incredibly charming. You can download them here.

Allow me to state, for the record, that I would like a NIZ. I would like TWO NIZZES.
I wish I knew how to BING.
Am I the only one who thought the past tense of BING would be BANG?
Ooh, interesting. I certainly didn’t think that, but it may well have been one of the things they were testing.
