If he can fight off the fatigue there's a chance that he'll find himself browsing through some old photographs – often from the millions available online through the Library of Congress.

Maybe it's an intelligent looking giraffe … or maybe an intelligent looking cowboy … (well, it COULD happen!). Somehow, that sleepy feeling is gone. He will start cutting and pasting bits and pieces of those images until a new composition emerges.
