Traditional art forms should have more juvenile vandalism.

Wait, you're telling me that the 30' llama outside my window isn't really there?

The Supersized Wildlife reminds me of some paintings of dinosaurs in modern settings, including some sauropod on a freeway, which I cannot find this morning. While the Cabazon dinosaurs are amusing, they're not the same thing I was thinking of.

In other news, BestBookMarks.Net seems like a pretty useful image browsing tool.

I like all of these, (but why does bestbookmarks.net think I might also like "Girls with Big Melons?" I mean, the surreal part I understand. Don't drive any more traffic to bestbookmarks.net when the links to the artists' pages you've provided already do well enough. Otherwise,) great post!

Duly noted - avoid bestbookmarks in future. The only reason for using them is the layout, number of images and image sizes seemed to be the best on there. Also, that professional white background.

That said, I do see the advantage of the easy interface that bestbookmarks provides... if there's anything that annoys me on the web, it's artsy interfaces that are difficult to use and keep me from enjoying the actual content. I'm just wary of web aggregators is all, and I'm sure artists love to see their websites getting direct hits.

And now a Surrealist Light Bulb Joke:

Q: How many giraffes does it change to take a lightbulb?

A: Dada.
