Nice, but only two pages.

Very cool - thanks!

Put that in its context when you drag it out, Ryvar.

I am pleasantly horrified, and I want more.

What's extra sad is that some of the fake/jokey "pimpings" are just as bad as the originals.

Redesign Superman is much more interesting.

It's only really making fun of bad artists, or rather, showing how much more skill the people on one forum have than on another. (And, as Robot Johnny pointed out, they don't always have more skill.)

The people on the eatpoo forums appear to be at least as nerdy as the people on Elfwood. They're just more highly skilled.

Why does Metafilter always have make fun of people? I hate that it's cool to make fun of furries.

Wolfdog: I never saw it in context in the first place.

It's a law of socialization: for any group of people, there will be at least one other group they feel superior to and run down when talking amongst themselves.

I can't believe I clicked a link that not only is clearly marked as involving furries, but leads to a site that has "eat poo" in its web address.

Yikes.

Wolfdog, WTF is that site? Where is ASPCA?

Lore's Geekchart (Hi, Lore, if you're reading this)

I like the chart.

Eh, the artwork's not my cup of tea, Frank, but I did happen to know the intended sentiment of the picture Ryvar linked and it cheeses me a little bit to see it misinterpreted.
posted by Wolfdog at 8:10 PM on July 27, 2006


Wolfdog: I figured that was the case. At any rate, it's floating around a lot in various corners of the Internet (I've seen it in 3-4 places with no mention of context), so I can assure you that many, many people had no idea that there was good intent behind what is an (unintentionally) fucking hilarious picture.
posted by Ryvar at 8:32 PM on July 27, 2006


Wow, the whole illustration challenge thing looks right up my alley, but I'm having trouble getting past the whole eatpoo thing. Can anyone suggest similar sites?

Why god? Why did I click on those links?

They're so mean, so evil, cruel... totally uncalled for.

Yes, I loved it too.

I thought the "superman redesign" thing was pretty cool. Some of these guys are pretty good. This, though was, well, no snarky rejoinder could really do it justice.
posted by delmoi at 9:19 PM on July 27, 2006


The transition from this to this was pretty amazing. Some of the "pimping" though isn't even an improvement.

Fun. Loved the Redesign Superman.

I agree it's probably inevitable, but then so is murder. Doesn't make it right.

Seriously. I'm not easily squicked, and, well, I'm thoroughly squicked.


But Superman redesign = awesome.

if you had the opportunity to do so, knowing what the outcome would be if you did not, would you murder HITLER in his emo years?

some furries need a little tough love.

Looks like Wolfdog might be a Furry! (or maybe a furry sympathizer).

Yeah, it's much funnier in context.

Dear God, Grimes! Dear God! NSFW tag! NSFW tag!

On mocking furries: The day I can't mock a man for dressing up like a mascot narwhale and fucking someone dressed in a Bugs Bunny costume is a day I don't want to be alive.

MY EYES! Goddamn, why did I click on that Grimesy link? God damn, that is NSFW. Or home. Fuckin' furries.
posted by mckenney at 7:08 AM on July 28, 2006


NSWF. Party foul, man.

Though the "eat poo" url, and the references to furries (read: perverts) are good hints. Even before my morning coffee I don't think I'd click on that thing.

For furry bashing you can't beat Something Awful. They are pros. And furry bashing is cool, even though deep down you suspect it's kind of mean. It just feels so right.

Actually, I thought the original on this one was better than the redux.

And then in this one, sure, the redux is prettier, but that's because the original is a simple line drawing. Nothing wrong with the original, though.

StrasbourgSecaucus, are you being serious or silly? I can't tell.

Your point?

Meh, leave the furries alone. They're not hurting anybody.

Oh come on don't you know that furries, suburban swingers, vampires, BBW-lovers and BDSM folk deserve to die. Unless of course, they are hawt, then they get brought back every season as a reoccurring character.

Redesign Superman reminds me of the excellent Fat Wonder Woman Blog and the Batgirl redesign meme.

Eventually someone is going to hit the great multi-faceted multi-fetish pinball-tilt Angry-God-trigger in the sky: Multibreasted, lactating, penis-nippled bovine-equine on fox-dolphin fat-feeding voraphiliac hermamphroditic-transexual sadomasochistic gothic lolita balloon-animal-humping dragon-vampires.

And on that day we'll finally piss God off enough to seal the fiery fate of the cosmos itself.

"...on that day we'll finally piss God off enough to seal the fiery fate of the cosmos..."

I like to think that God sets a bit of time aside every week to see highlights of "furries, suburban swingers, vampires, BBW-lovers, BDSM folk" and the like, and he gets a kick out of it. Sincerely laughs out loud a lot. It's like His equivalent of really bad TV. Like how you might secretly enjoy America's Funniest Videos or Fear Factor, but you don't wanna tell anybody cuz they'll laugh.

My God isn't vengeful. He just has a sick sense of humor. YMMV.

Your sarcasm detector is miscalibrated. There is no God. Furries are proof of this.
posted by loquacious at 8:31 AM on July 29, 2006


That's the beauty of it, Loquacious. Furries ARE proof that there is a God. And He is a sick fucker.

That's not God, that's your skeezy uncle. And I noticed you arbitrarily capitalized my username as if I were a Deity.

Wait, does that make me your skeezy uncle?
