True American Dog
December 8, 2010 2:56 PM   Subscribe

True American Dog is where I go for my silliness these days. It's a single panel photoshop comic about animals. And what animals! There's Kooly the Bear, Eagle, Dog and many more. It's about as silly as it gets, in a good way.

Bad photoshopping is good times.

This is tremendous, Kattullus. Thanks!

Bad photoshopping? This is great photoshopping as in "It's great that I can now visualize what the fever dreams of a 19th century opium addict looked like." Mermaid horses, shark mountains and blood filled pumpkins are truly the stuff of drug induced hallucinations or perhaps a glimpse into the many angled chaos that lies beyond the thin veil of what we imagine reality to be.

These are incredible. It's like someone tried to teach a computer program about what jokes are, and the program got really excited about the idea and set up a blog.

This is hands down my favorite so far.

I, for one, was very impressed by Eagle's Justin Bieber Halloween costume ...

I was kind of unimpressed until I hit this one.

Well, now that I've seen this, I think I can safely say I've finally finished the internet.

I just noticed that the filenames sometimes function as alternate punchlines/captions or give clues as to where the joke started. Also, often there are other jokes hidden away inside the images (e.g. the computer screen here... also, the dog has a gold medal that says science).

The problem with looking at all of these in rapid succession is that then I saw the title of this post and expected a wacky photoshop photo.

I was, however, not disappointed with the actual photo in the article.

Truly excellent work.

The look on the face of the dog who lost his Halloween store just made my day. I'm crying on a train full of people.

Much thanks for this one

I've been watching this for weeks waiting for it to blow up. Somehow the internet has missed it's tremendous glory

I like ambiguity of Teacher Uses Lion to Teach Kids About Drugs. Because the way that's looking, it might not be an anti-drug message that's about to commence.

This is magnificent!!!

I didn't notice before that the poor lion is bleeding from his nose and ears.

Is that a Super Dave Osborne helmet, Kooley?

Genius. And by that I mean they went full retard and came out the other side.

That's why he needs the drugs!

Perfect description.

I generally like silly and absurdist humor, but these just aren't making me laugh.

I, on the other hand, haven't stopped laughing for about 2 hours. Every time I stop laughing, I think about this or this and start laughing again. Well, coughing, at this point. Thanks, asthma.

Dog Puts Gun in Jail is a headline that can benefit any newspaper.
posted by Chinese Jet Pilot at 6:48 PM on December 8, 2010


Holy Shit.

The first few struck me a kind of funny, but as I scrolled down the page I started laughing harder and harder. This is like the momentum of funny, like picking up speed as I run down hill, except instead of spraining my ankle I just end up enjoying myself.

Thank you! The News Alerts are priceless.

King of Shark Mountain! Best band/sockpuppet name evar.

These would be lame were it not for the headline-like titles. Instead, I did the same thing Azza did, albeit in the comfort of my own home.
