London-based, Brazilian-born illustrator Lucas Levitan has a humorous ongoing project. He’s been grabbing stranger’s images off Instagram and adding his own characters with funny and awkward results. His additions often transform rather benign photographs into something altogether ridiculous and unexpected – like beachgoers being vacuumed up by a gigantic woman, or a man playing harp with the cables on a bridge.

This Cat is the Most Beautiful We’ve Seen… But It’s Just Been Named “Most Awful Sleeping Face” in Japan
With gigantic blue eyes and a snow-white coat, this Japanese cat named Setsu-Chan might be the most beautiful feline we’ve ever seen… that is, until she takes a cat nap.
After gaining a substantial following on Twitter, she has recently been dubbed “Most Awful Sleeping Face” by a number of Japanese publications, and it’s not hard to see why. This looks like the most relaxed cat in history. As soon as she nods off, her tongue pops out, her eyes roll back (but don’t quite close). If we didn’t see the before and after shots, we’d think she wasn’t gonna make it. [Read more…]
In designing the new Euro banknotes released in 2002, Austrian designer Robert Kalina purposely created fictitious bridges to represent architectural styles through European history. It was deemed a good idea to keep things generic and not show favoritism for any member country in the EU’s newly formed Eurozone. Now, Dutch designer Robin Stam has turned that idea on its head.
“The European Bank didn’t want to use real bridges so I thought it would be funny to claim the bridges and make them real [Read more…]
They sure don’t make ‘em like they used to… especially when it comes to Christmas advertisements. They were sexist, weird and even downright unhealthy. So grab your matching family pajamas, light up a few smokes, and take a trip down memory lane with these gloriously bad mid-century ads. [Read more…]
If you’ve ever hopped off a flight to London and taken the Underground into the city, you were treated to something remarkably British. Over the loudspeaker a soothing voice announces without a bit of a giggle, that you are on the train bound for… Cockfosters. It’s a name that would raise most english speaker’s eyebrows, but not the English themselves. Welcome to Great Britain, home of very silly names. [Read more…]
The Warrior pose has never been more fitting than for Dan Abramson’s series of toy soldiers: Yoga Joes.

It would be just like Mr. Bean to accidentally get his portrait painted by a classic master… and that’s a bit what it looks like here. In his half hilarious/half disturbing series, caricaturist Rodney Pike has been inserting the face of Rowan Atkinson into the works of classic masters. The actor suddenly sports the wig of George Washington (and a knowing look) and then becomes Rembrandt looking rather nonplussed. It’s utterly bizarre and fantastic. [Read more…]
Baby photography is one of those things that has quickly turned into a gigantic cliché. Do a little snuggle, snap some picture of tiny feet, wrap them in a blanket – don’t forget the soft lighting. That’s why this series by photographer Jamie Clauss is so awesome. She and her next door neighbors Jan and Chase Renegar were having a boring day, so to liven things up they created a newborn photo shoot using their Jack Russell terrier. Her name? Snuggles.
