While the Internet's a lovely place, some things should just stay there, like horrific YouTube pop song covers, and that time you killed a guy on Second Life. Or was that first life? Oh crap, where's the bleach. Affirming that viral blogs should stay on the web, Look At This F***ing Idea For a Blog-to-Book Deal
An ode to the frighteningly lucrative potential of the viral web in photoblog form, Look's a satirical compilation of fictional blog ideas they're sure're worth a coffee table book, a trend that's led to everything from awkward boner'd dudes to suicidal pets getting deals, and has given hope to every two-bit blogger who dreams to share shelf space with African Medallion Shower Curtains at Urban Outfitters. Some notable highlights
In the vein of a recent viral big hit "Look At This F***ing Hipster": Look At This F***ing Hip, coupled with a photo of some doofy-looking dude pointing to some chick's hip. (Note: almost definitely created by hipsters)
A riff on the always entertaining "Gay Bar or Steakhouse": "Famous Architect or Early 20th Century Pedophile Dandy?", illustrated with a black & white portrait of a dude who's almost definitely the latter. Or is he??
"Just Add Selleck", which seems to be a place where everything's given a Photoshopped moustache, i.e., a delicious looking pear -- perhaps a reflection on the fruit-shaped direction of his career
Inspired by the less-than-big hit "When I Had Braces": "When I Had Rickets", featuring old photos of toddlers with misshapen legs, 'cause nothing's funnier than that. Except everything.
