You've laughed at them in the supermarket checkout line, now dirt Magazine lets you create your own tabloid headlines and spread vile gossip about your friends and enemies with a few keystrokes and a simple click of the mouse!

Here's one that I made. In order to save it, I had to print it to a file, convert to PDF, then cut and paste into Photoshop. There's probably an easier way to do it, but I couldn't figure it out.

Oh this is not only hilarious but very useful!

Cheers, MrBaliHai - await further developments. :)

You could just do a screen capture.

I have a tank top exactly like jonmc's - weird.

Yeah, iconomy, I of course realized that right after I posted it.

What - that I had a tank top exactly like jonmc's? Unfortunately I don't look half as good in it as he does ;)

A good place to note that you can do this with any web page using this bookmarklet. Make your excruciatingly clever edits, and either screencap it or save it as *.mht (IE) for email-forwarding hilarity!

(Only edits html text, obviously -- but with remarkable formatting flexibility!)

You know, the weird thing is, not only do I love lemon in my (unpalatable, Korean) beer, I have a goatee not dissimilar to the one on the chin of my doppelganger in that pic, and I can be found wearing white cotton shirts, most of my waking life, even when I'm passed out on the bar.

Thanks for the oblique shoutout, MrBH!

Er, I'm going to reserve comment on the 'weird sex life' bit though. Heh.

It was an easy call, stav. Your online persona here fairly screams 'lemon', 'goatee', and 'passed out'...;^)

I'm going to reserve comment on the 'weird sex life'

Probably for the best, but I figure that it involves earwax and those little Korean souvenir totem poles.

Thanks for the oblique shoutout

My pleasure. I'm still disappointed that I couldn't get that legless panhandler in the Milan subway to hold up a Prada bag with "Hi Miguel!" scribbled on the side.
