Why the hell would I click on that just before I am going to try to sleep. NOW I WILL NOT SLEEP!

I hate you sometimes, internet.

Outstanding? Truly. I'll be outstanding on the balcony, drinking straight shots of Jack until these images are erased from my mind. Don't wait up...I'll be a while...

Dear god, why did I ignore your cryptic warnings? Why did I choose to See That Which Must Not Be Seen?

Ia! Ia!

So they're making a Korean sequel to Killers from Space.

Crazy shoddy and yet attentive to detail... I like the way the Mr. Burns guy tucked his pinkies behind his ring fingers to try to have four fingers total just like in the frame.

Actually, all of them except Smithers are tucking fingers.

> Wow, almost as disturbing as this comic.

No, I'm a doctor* and declare that that comic is from a far more disturbing universe than those silly cosplayers. Sweet Jeebus.


*Not a doctor, in case it wasn't blindingly obvious.

That phrase is cosplaying Reverend Spooner.

So Takashi Miike directed an episode of the Simpsons.

How about that.

I really haven't been paying as much attention to the show as I used to.

Just imagine these folks shooting a live-action re-enactment of the show intro.

My god, that Sideshow Bob. That's 100% more disturbing than any bunny-headed people David Lynch could dream up.

At least they haven't escalated to amputations, yet.

That's not cosplay, just Korean kids goofing around at school.

Sideshow Bob has his hands tied in a straight jacket. If he is tucking fingers, this cannot be demonstrated in the pictures provided.

Homer is flipping the bird with each hand. His fingers are not tucked (unless tucking fingers is synonymous with clenched fist, in which case no one else is tucking fingers, including Mr. Burns)

Lisa is tucking fingers. Therefore: All of them except for Smithers, Homer, a couple photos of Sideshow Bob, are tucking fingers. In fact, only one other photo has tucking fingers, and in that instance, she's tucking too many fingers.

I started feeling ashamed about being pedantic over the Simpsons. Then I realized I actually should be ashamed about being pedantic over cos-players.
