Everyone's been in the following situation. You're sitting there at a nice bar, chatting up a smoking hot member of the opposite sex when all of a sudden they drop this bomb: "Can you engrave on wood in Photoshop?" The next thing you know, the night spirals into blackness and you wake up in a puddle of your own tears with some half-eaten beef jerky hanging out of your mouth.
Howdy, hobos! Last week's WTFoto challenge meandered on much like its namesake, the vagrant. We had a couple good submissions that warmed my heart with laughter. I thought my examples were pretty on point, but my confidence is pretty low right now because I failed a recent IQ test. For your amusement, here are those awesome remixes of the Hobo Image Macro! Did they measure up?
Cakes. They're delicious and we eat them at birthdays, weddings, and wakes (that aren't ours). In the splendorous world of culinary creations, there is no comestible that allows for such decorative flexibility as the cake. It can be simple, it can be complex. It can be amazing, it can be disastrous.
If only airline safety cards were more like this in real life, we would be much more tempted to read them. Then again, in the unlikely event of an emergency, we'd have to endure cries of "Won't someone please think of the children!?"
Ad from circa 1880, found on http://copyranter.blogspot.com/2010/05/its-easy-to-die-with-diamond-dyes.html. Nothing Disturbing here
Hands down, the most disgusting food in the world. It is banned from many airlines and postal services because of it's stench, which has been described as a mixture of rotten baby diapers mixed with road kill and burning rubber. Yum!
The beta version of Photoshop CS6! It's free indefinitely from Adobe until the beta period ends!
There's a time in everyone's life when they need to become immortalized and reprographed in a full-blown comic spread, complete with halftone dots and speech bubbles—or squares, if you're a square. With our favorite program Photoshop, you can quickly turn any hyperbolic celebrity into a comical farce. Even normal people can become vintage villains with a little pixelation.
Need help getting started on this week's WTFoto Challenge? Look no further! In this tutorial, I will teach you how to create simple chalk symbols and writing in Photoshop. So read through this post and try it out yourself—or I'll tell your cousin what you said when you were drunk that one time. Keep in mind that the steps are similar for other programs, such as GIMP.
Welcome to the second official WTFoto Challenge! Last week's WTF Stock Photo Challenge went great (see winner here), so I figured it's time for another image search, this time—Fan Art!
For any of you not in the loop, last week marked our first ever WTFoto Challenge. The goal was to find the craziest, most absurd stock photo on the web we've never seen before. There were a lot of WTF images submitted to our community corkboard, and now it's time to announce the results of the stock image showdown. Who will win the the honor of Watermark of Weirdness? Drumroll please, imaginary band leader named Tim Drickles...
So far, there have been some excellent entries to our WTFoto Stock Photo Challenge, but the battle is not over yet. You still have a couple days left to submit your best find to the WTFoto community corkboard for a chance to take the crown. Remember, we're looking for an absurd stock photo image that nobody's ever seen before. Entries are due Monday, February 27th, 11:59:59pm PST. One second later and, well... I'll probably just let it slide. But 2 seconds later and you're out!
The deadline is counting down to enter the WTFoto Fan Art Challenge, so make sure you post your images to the community corkboard soon! And remember, we want the most twisted one you can find (sans nudity). You can start hunting for nutty fan art drawings over at deviantART and Fanart Central, to name a few. Entries are due Monday, March 5th at 11:59:59pm PST.
Who doesn't love Star Wars? No one, that's who. And if you love Stars Wars, logic would follow that you like lightsabers, so central are they to the tale's mythology. It's part sword, part laser, and makes a sound like a humming motor have multigasms. If I saw one in real life, I would struggle not to lick it, even though that would mean death.
Hey bros, broettes, and normal people. This post is all about INSPIRATION, a word that we hear a lot during years when the Olympics are on, but screw that, they don't own the copyright and I'm using it.
Hello, nubile young Photoshop explorers! As we all know, besides design, Photoshop is best used for revenge, as will be demonstrated below. This is my ex-girlfriend, Cassandra. She dumped me because I had "poor bone structure." I'll bone her structure! Well, not anymore, I guess.
Each year on Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, Ashbourne becomes a war zone! The majority of the ablebodied men, women and children take to the streets to play what is probally the largets football game in the world! - The two teams number in the hundreds, and the palying field is 3 miles long, 2 miles wide and has the town of Ashbourne in the middle!
We're back again with another WTFoto Challenge! Last week's Hobo Advice Challenge somewhat inspired this week's humdinger, where we want you to help us develop the BRO CODE. You could be a part of internet history. Follow the simple directions below and post your submissions on the community corkboard. If you feel like you need some help getting started, check out our first of many WTFotoShop tutorials!
For those of you behind on their international politics, Vladimir Putin has once again been elected as President of Russia. And right now, there are over 20,000 protesters in Moscow yelling about election fraud. Now, whether or not you think they're right, or whether or not you think Putin is a badass (he is, for the record), you have to admit he is an amazingly interesting cultural figure. And what do we do with amazing cultural figures? Why, we make fun of them with Impact-laden photos, of ...
Hello, life forms and inanimate objects the world over. This week's competition is the Hobo Image Macro challenge, and we want to see more entries! Don't be intimidated by the hobo's dull, yet threatening stare—it's easy to do! Just to prove it, here are ten pieces of Hobo advice I prepared earlier in the kitchen (I live in a studio; it's all the same).
We've all had photos taken of us that we hate. Celebrities, on the other hand, have the fortune of having their photo retouched to perfection. But what happens when the person doing that retouching suffers a stroke?
In many ways, we center a large portion of our lives around festivals. They provide us days off from work, allow us time to be content with our families and loved ones, and a give us a chance to eat as much as we want without Aunt Carol saying something about our necks (it's thyroidal, Carol). However, some festivals are determined to push the needle to crazy. Here, for your consideration, are those offenders.
Besides Wikipedia and teachers (in that order), textbooks are the go-to source of information during our school years. Today, we take a look at what happens when the people writing these voluminous tomes get attacked by a sudden bout of ennui.
Medicine, like the internet, is serious business. So when the text that appears on the labels of our medicine bottles makes about as much sense as an epileptic in a rave club, we can't help but take pause. Follow us on a journey of prescriptions and misdescriptions!
Ah, the image macro -- capitalizing on ppl iz stoopid and borderline copyright infringement since 1763. Sweet!
Ivy League schools aren't just places for people to row and sip their drinks out of glasses normal people would never use (i.e. snifters). They also the place for trolling on a grand scale. Just take a look at these Trolls de la Resistance!
Hey guys, gals, and everyone in-between! This week's WTFoto Challenge is a real humdinger. For the first time ever, we're asking you to ply your image macro skills and make us belly laugh like a drunken hillbilly at a corn festival. We've created our very own image macro for you to memify—Hobo Advice! Check out the full instructions below to get started.

Can't say I'm big into fan art, so when this challenge got me to search the web for some recent fan art drawings, I was surprised to just how NSFW they were. I came across some weird Glee animal hybrids making love and some true Linsanity on the basketball court. But as this is a SFW competition, I'll just go with this...
If, unlike me, you have stopped using crayons for your daily art endeavors (and light, yet nutritionally-bereft snacks), here's a reason to buy a new pack of rainbow glory.
The angry New Yorker stereotype sure doesn't miss anyone. A woman from New York is suing her former Catholic college for not doing 'enough' for her while her dorm roommate was having too much sex. We're not entirely sure if the college even handed out ties to hang on doorknobs, let alone provide each room with a humidifier that has 3-4 different soothing sound loops for stress relief and relaxation.
Wax foods are looking pretty scary-real these days. Here's a demonstration of how lettuce is made for food displays in WTF land itself—Japan.
I was walking down the street one day and saw this sign. It was definitely news to me. What next? Fetus facials?
Ever wanted to look perpetually surprised/insane? This beautiful new mouth exercising product from the land of WTF itself—Japan—can make you look like a startled blowjob fish 24/7. Yay!
Don't be deceived... she's a computer. There are crazy case mods and then there's this. "Bradley, why do you spend all your time alone in the basement?"
This mouse once bounded through fields or pet shop cages with aplomb. Now, it is a peripheral. Ah, how life changes. You can make your own mouse mouse at home, too—all you need is a mouse, a mouse, and a solid constitution.
Want to get back at your teacher for setting a ridiculously difficult test? Why waste time? Do it during the exam. There's really no particular order below, just so you know.
