I need to enlist the help of a hardcore fan...

So, I'm doing this presentation for a cognitive psychology class about an experiment I had to conduct where people tried to identify abstract figures from a partner's description. The descriptions ended up being super stange and interesting. I'm working on the powerpoint now and I'm looking for a comic to put on the first slide--

I imagined that somewhere within the catacombs of PA jpegs there might be something fitting..
Maybe something about old NES games and the weird bad guys and settings due to such low graphical capabilities?

Obviously, thats super specific-- anything semi-relevant to abstract interpretation would be helpful, even if it's not PA.

Any suggestions?

    So basically you're deconstructing the $100,000 Pyramid?

    Sounds like that right there is your first slide candidate.

    Not sure exactly what you are looking for, but do either of these Calvin and Hobbes strips fit the bill?

    if you want more examples the TV game show $25,000 Pyramid has lots of clips on youtube and such (it was back when $25,000 was the amount of money you could have as a prize to make people excited)

    Nah, gotta go OG with the $10,000 Pyramid! Tbh I went with the 100k title since it's probably the one most people these days remember.

    I'm reminded of this article from Cracked.
    Don't know if it's quite what you're looking for though.
