God puts all the pictures on the internet, even the bad ones, as he loves all of us, even the bad people

Something Awful Forums has an active thread where adults draw kids conceptions, mostly about animals. Some of them are cute, others are gloriously bizarre. Also in the same vein: Axe Cop [Previously].

Cute. I routinely remind my cat that he is the Worst. Cat. Ever.

Between thinking one of the the drawings said "Can dolphins do meth? YES!" and thinking

was going to lead to something...different...

I need a cup of coffee. Real bad.

The surprised jaguar with the missing fish in the second picture down ("They like to eat owls... and fish - but just one.") immediately made this post for me. This idea is so charming and the results are great.

My two oldest talk like this ALL THE TIME and I only wish I had the talent to attempt this sort of project.

Wow, some of these are really well drawn.

Love the rabbit one. Love.

These drawings are great.

Axe Cop, however, has seemed to devolve into "here's a cool thing that Ethan saw on Ben 10". Also, the artist had no trouble with drawing a wild-eyed caricature of the Prophet Mohammed for EDMD because as he said he "hates political correctness", and keeps laughing off some of the problematic parts with "oh ho ho he is just a kid and i am just his brother and i am just the illustrator" means the comic lost a lot of its shine for me.

If the headline didn't give it away, I like the internet one.

And now I really want someone to make a cheesy as hell Gnome fork where little people walk around and push windows for the GUI. When you close the window, they fold it up like a flag, and then drag it offscreen.

This will be better when they compile them into a Photoshop Phriday, for ease of browsing.

because as he said he "hates political correctness"

The thread was kind of annoying to read. There were a few cute entries, lots of lame ones, and lots of boring (yet oddly self-congratulatory)

I love that someone actually drew The Beast Of Craggy Island from Father Ted.

Axe Cop has nothing to do with Something Awful, though. (Also their cooking forum is really good, I swear)

Not Photoshop Phriday, but there is a Comedy Goldmine entry.

I had a five-year-old (physicist's son) explain Bose-Einstein condensates ("Daddy's atom clouds") to me at dinner the other night. That was... surreal.
