Sonic Bunny and Bugs The Hedgehog

This is what would happen if you melted Sonic the Hedgehog in a microwave for three minutes on full power.


And this is what Bugs Bunny might look like if you were on drugs and, as a result, mistaking a real rabbit for Bugs Bunny. That probably explains the Easter eggs floating above his head as well.


Thanks to Bambino Tostare for these!

Don't Try This At Home... Or In Public

Some of you may have seen this ride (no pun intended) on Fail Blog a few months ago, but I've been sent a photo of it and it's so bizarre that it's definitely worth posting here.

Whatever questions this photo raises for you, I can only offer "paint fumes" as the answer.



Thanks to Lisa Watkins for sending this in!

This Is Not The Simpsons

There's an alternate universe where Matt Groening is a luckless alcoholic who paints random images on abandoned walls. That's where this photo is from. Could there be another explanation for Mr. Burns' huge teeth and long hair, or for Homer Simpson's right hand flipper?



Thanks to Will Mack for this!

Hairy Potter

Oh dear oh dear... what have we here? Harry Potter aged 80? I think JK Rowling would find it hard to claim copyright infringement here as there's very little likeness to any of the characters in her books.



You can click the image above for the full-sized horror, but I've zoomed in on the worst bit below to save you the bother...




Thanks to Becky E for this photo!

Not A Proper Post

Hello everyone!

Sorry for the lack of posts this week -  I'm in the middle of moving house, which I'm sure you know is a pain in the ass.

Normal service will be resumed... well, now, actually!

Intellectual Property Lawyer Hell

These photos come courtesy of Russell Davies who quite rightly points out that intellectual property lawyers must have a dreadful time at fairgrounds. "It must be especially tough if you work for Disney," he says.



I love the way Fred Flintstone is floating in this one...



...and how Winnie the Pooh is enormous in this picture - he could eat Mickey for breakfast!




Thanks Russell!

Something For The Kids To Aspire To

Though the executioner in this photo has a ludicrously massive chest, he also has a petite lady's ankles, which must mean this guy experiences terrible pain whenever he walks.



Also note the woman's extremely long thighs. She could run away from this guy easily, if only it wasn't for that damn rope!

Also from the same fair (in Missouri) is this photo. To me, there's something slightly strange about inflatable guns with the stars and stripes flag on them.



Though maybe I've got it all wrong - perhaps they're freedom rifles, which shoot liberty bullets. Take that, you reds!

It's What's On The Inside That Counts

Kids, let this be a warning to you  -  this is what happens when you cut open your belly to reveal your intestines while starring in a 1980s music video!



Now don't do it again!


Thanks to librarianishish.com for the photo!

Bird Stuck on a Wire for 19 Years



I'll acknowledge that Arnold Schwartzenegger as the Terminator is an enduring image, but I'm not sure how many children  -  or adults, for that matter  -  get excited about going on the Bird on a Wire ride almost 20 years after the film came out.  I doubt this would have drawn people to the ride back in 1990!  This painting's not so bad really, though Mel and Goldie seem to be unwashed in this painting.  (Compare with the original.)

Thanks to Glen Pearson for sending this one in!

Just Wrong

I'm at a loss to know what to say about this picture, it's so bizarre, so I'll just shut up and show you the picture.



Is your brow furrowed now, too?

Another Real Thing You've Gotten Me Into

I'm posting late today, so to make up for it here's two...

First up, here's Stan Laurel and he really doesn't feel too well:



In fact, I think he's about to be sick! (Click for the full-size photo.)

Perhaps he's been on this ride:



I hate to disappoint anyone thinking of going on this ride, but that ain't flying into space. In fact, isn't the whole point of these rides that they're not the real thing?
