    This is a series of Photoshopped images from Rabbbittooth (not to be confused with Rabittoot, which are usually accompanied by a couple pellets) that superimposes a Star Trek character's face over an old timey body. That's pretty much it. There are some Star Wars ones after t... / Continue →

    You're not fooling anybody! Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to make it your desktop background. In other 'animals that look like things' news, this is a crab casting a shadow that looks uncannily like the caped crusader (Batman, not the kid that runs around your ne... / Continue →
