Today we have some of the funniest, and most unfortunate examples of this client abuse that the freelancers of the world deal with on a daily basis. Whether you are a freelancer or not, you can definitely laugh (or cry) along with us as we go through these hilarious posters, tweets, and videos from all over the web. Rageguy Goes to Hot Topic Hot Topic Ventures into Memes Last week, American retail chain Hot Topic introduced a new t-shirt design featuring Rageguy, a stick figure character from the popular internet cartoons that had its beginning on 4chan in late 2008. Titled “FU Meme Guy T-shirt” and categorized under “Pop Culture” section, Hot Topic’s open venture into internet memes infuriated many on 4chan and Reddit who felt their communal joke had been hijacked by corporate marketers. Some called for a boycott, while others began planning for a strike back. Internet Strikes Back Then came Operation: Black Rage, an Anonymous-led smear campaign seeking to taint Hot Topic’s brand image by instructing internet users to create and proliferate racist versions of the original Rageguy comics.
My "top ten" books every student of International Relations should read Last week Tom Ricks offered us his "Top Ten list" of books any student of military history should read. The FP staff asked me to follow suit with some of my favorites from the world of international politics and foreign policy. What follows aren't necessarily the books I'd put on a graduate syllabus; instead, here are ten books that either had a big influence on my thinking, were a pleasure to read, or are of enduring value for someone trying to make sense of contemporary world politics. But I've just scratched the surface here, so I invite readers to contribute their own suggestions. Strangers That Look Like Twins I’m not a lookalike! is a project by photographer Francois Brunelle. The series features photos of strangers who look like twins. The resemblance between these unrelated people is seriously uncanny. Kinda makes me want to meet my doppelgänger! I’ve always wanted a twin.
awful client feedback In the spirit of Clients from Hell, several Irish creative companies joined forces on a series called “Sharp Suits”… Ad creatives, designers, animators, directors, illustrators and more took time out to dress up their favourite worst feedback from clients, transforming quotes that would normally give you a twitch, into a diverse collection of posters. As a non-designer, I think the popularity of mocking the people that keep designers employed is kind of petty and patronizing…but that doesn’t mean it isn’t funny. So…here are lots of the best examples. Hipster Kitty About Hipster Kitty (a.k.a Hipster Cat) is an advice animal image macro series featuring a fashion-conscious kitten wearing a lavender hoodie and a pair of thick-framed glasses.

Ultra-realistic Fantasy Dolls. It's Scary How Real They Look. Santani, a 23-year-old girl from Moscow, Russia, creates these ultra-realistic fantasy animal dolls. The creatures are a mix of creepy, cute and amazing. The good news is that you can buy one of these if you contact the artist directly. The creatures are made using different types of materials like fimo, cernit, sculpey, sonet and fabric fur. The artist has completely mastered the power of cute. If I had a monkey Disguised Monkey If I had a monkey, I would borrow my mums sewing machine and make my monkey a little monkey suit. Then if anyone said "Thats not a real monkey, it's just a monkey suit, I can see the zipper", I could say "I bet you fifty dollars it is a real monkey" and when they said "that seems like a reasonable bet, you are on", my monkey would take off the monkey suit and they would have to pay me fifty dollars. I would buy drugs with the fifty dollars.
Joseph Ducreux / Archaic Rap About Joseph Ducreux (June 26, 1735 – July 24, 1802) is an eighteenth century French artist known for his unorthodox style of portrait paintings. On the interweb, his eccentric self-portrait has inspired a series of exploitable macros, featuring “archaic reinterpretation” of popular rap lyrics superimposed over the artwork. Reminiscent of Bayeux Tapestry image macros, this highly verbose joke provides a satisfying challenge of “decoding” the corrupted lyrics back into to the original verses. Origin Portrait de l’artiste sous les traits d’un moqueur (English: Self-portrait of the artist in the guise of a mockingbird), which depicts Ducreux grinning smugly while pointing his finger towards the viewer, was completed circa 1793.
