easybreathe: Breathe Easy

The best part of waking up isn’t Folgers in your cup, it’s not dying from sleep apnea.

Photoshop Disasters

Doing something about something that can kill you in your sleep is a fine and noble cause, but photoshopping  Bane masks on stock photos and claiming it will increase your sex appeal is just irresponsible advertising. You are selling a product that will literally save consumer lives. You don’t need to dress it up with chiseled abs and cleavage that threatens spill out at any moment.

home woot!: Puns about Monarchies

Cookings and Cookqueens should be on the lookout for the Tsar of Sloppy Photoshops and the Khans of Cut and Paste.

Photoshop Disasters

Okay, so we’re all clear on the fact that these kitchen appliances have been sloppily photoshopped onto this counter. But why does the copy here state that the food of Southeast Asia is impossible to conquer? Commentary on the Vietnam war? Recognition of the accomplishments of the Mongolians in the 12th Century? Or are rice and noodle based dishes too simple to accomplish with shiny appliances?

Cabbage Latch

I found the door to Narnia. It’s behind this head of lettuce.

If you overlook the arm that’s elbow deep in shadows and cabbages, this isn’t a terrible cut and paste. By the way, “elbow deep in shadows and cabbages” is the name of my Cabbage Patch Kids fan-fiction. It’s about a midwife who ends up on the wrong side of the law, and – you know what, I don’t want to spoil anything.

By the way, I know I refer to these green things as both lettuce and cabbage. Long story short, I do not lead a particularly healthy lifestyle.

Thanks Oscar. You can see the original Orbyt.

Kenyan Senator: Oh, Man…dela

Mandela must be part Bigfoot (thanks Reddit!).

What’s worse, that a politician lied, or that a politician removed Muhammad Ali and replaced him with a picture of himself?

I may not know much about politics, but I feel that if that’s the route you’re going to take, you could get a lot more votes photoshopping yourself into other Ali moments.

Thanks Stephen. You can see the original on The Independent.

Adori: Put Your Paws up in the Air

Did you know that a cat’s eyes have trouble grasping perspective? Probably!

Photoshop Disasters

Ignoring the perspective break from the cat trying to raise the roof, let’s appreciate the semi-transparent background image that accompanies this disaster. I’m not sure why this cat-tower is plunked in the center of a living room (or why they feel the need to state OP = OP), but I feel like I’m starting to ask the right questions.

Thanks Reinier. You can see the original on Agroluxe.

Women’s volleyball: Cut up coach

If there’s one thing that never needed to add to women’s volleyball, it’s a bunch of cut-and-pasted men.

Photoshop Disasters

Let the record show that when we were presented with a disaster featuring a bunch of women, balls, and fake-looking men, I took the high-road and avoided the obvious testicle joke. Maturity!

Unrelated to the disaster, though? Check out the woman on the right and her oh-so natural stool pose.

Stool as in the chair, not as in – oh damn, I was doing so well too.
