Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Take heart-- you're better off than you think.

PhotoShop Disasters is one of the funniest sites I've seen in a while. It also makes you feel a little better about the world around you.

People don't look like those in magazine advertisements, friends. If you're attempting to achieve beauty by those standards, you will always fail.

But that's okay... so do the production artists:

You should look skinnier.

You should have more graceful arms.

Your waistline should be bulge-free.

Men should look less craggy. (or, apparently, less masculine?)

Even your lawn should look better!

Funny, funny stuff. And a lesson for those who have unconsciously been comparing themselves to what they see in popular publications, and found themselves wanting.

It's not all just fun and games, though. There are some interesting strategic implications to debunking photoshopped pics, too.

My arms should be more graceful?

What's wrong with you folks! Good googly moogly, arms by John Moses Browning, NOTHING is more graceful than those arms!

Haha, I love it.

I caught a guy that photoshopped an EMT certification on a facebook group...

what's up with that. It's not like being an EMT is cool or glamerous...

now if it'd had been a FF cert...

I amuse myself by photoshopping asses on to the heads of politicians.

Nothing like a bit of truth in advertising.

LOL- That's why I always find the truth works better! Don't have to remember which lies got told to whom... :-)
