Default You just can't make it up.

A thread dedicated to amusing real-life images.

The images must be of real things or situations and they must not be maliciously altered. Just the facts, Ma'am.

MY favourite video store "Megaflicks", but they chose a font that gives a somewhat different impression about what they are selling.

I'm guessing the casino in question hired the "stud porker" to attract the little old ladies from the cruise ships ... don't even want to speculate on what the "crap action" is all about, though.

Some time ago there was a Photoshop competition at fark.com where contestants were asked to "improve" the mascot of the 2006 Winter Olympics, Neve and Gliz. One rather risque entry added an impressive piece of anatomy to Gliz. Well, these pics from fark.com Photoshop contests have a way of spreading around the web and showing up on all kinds of places...
So far this doesn't qualify for this thread... but now enter a clueless journalist trying to write a piece on how lame the mascots for the Olympics are. Lacking a pic of Neve and Gliz, he fires up a Google image search, picks some image he likes, and off to the presses it goes.
Unfortunately the error was noticed quickly, and the official mascot image was used for all but the earliest printing that day.
