Oh wow. These mock ads created by Anna Hill, a 24-year-old student at East Carolina University student, are pretty fanfuckingtastic.

Hill created the images skewering overly Photoshopped ads for a final project in a digital photography class, which she shared on Reddit. So while she's someone who utilizes and appreciates the medium, she's also someone who recognizes when mainstream medium outlets overuse and abuse the tool.

Hill described her surprising reaction to the final product to the Huffington Post:

"One thing I noticed when I was doing these that when I suddenly went back to the unedited [image], it looked so wrong and kinda gross," Hill said. "It made me extra aware of how skewed my perception was after looking at the edited ones for a while."

Hey, I've met my new best friend—she's funny, talented and totally brilliant! We should totally ask if she'll sit with us at lunch tomorrow.

hello everyone, i am stuck in the greys on gawker main, and need to put this somewhere in the black (sorry burt)

soo this. george zimmerman, the worthless murderous poop is selling some pretty fucking stupid awful art on ebay, and it right now is going for : US $99,966.00

here is my idea:

since this fucking dingleberry is going for hella $$ no many how many profanity laced comments i leave, i am going to bid on this, for like 11dybillion dollars, and then, wait for it.... NOT PAY. forcing him to wait in limbo for at least 8 days, while i twiddle my thumbs (ebay policy to let you wait that long). then, i'm going to be really annoying, and ask if i can pay in installments, of like $1 per year, etc. etc ad infinitum til ebay shuts me down and he resells it. i am an established ebayer, so this seems plausible, no?
