This Picture is Unrelated + Oddly-Specific Signs

Somewhat in-line with a previous venture: http://www.tfproject.org/tfp/found-n...photobomb.html

I've happened upon another site that takes the idea above and makes it even more weird, and obtuse: Picture Is Unrelated
(basically the same premise as a photobomb, but add more strange oddities, animals, a sprinkle of retro-futurism, and nudity,
and it evloves into a totally-unrelated-to-anything-preceding-it-sort-of-picture.)

Another kind of content-sharing thread, for any sort of photo that makes you ponder, "what was the aim here?" .. Help proliferate, please.

what does that mean? Should I have put a dislaimer in the OP about explicit nudity, vulgarity, morbid sorts of shots, or you intimating another thought altogether?

Actually, it is part of the Cheezburger Network. The guy who runs these sites freely admits that he takes the best of 4chan and spreads it to the masses. A good article: King of Cheez: The Internet’s Meme Maestro Turns Junk Into Gold | Wired Magazine

Much thanks for the article, RedLemon. The title of it is great (well, only considering your setup).

I wonder if this site is also part of the network? (it has the same kind of look and premise)

I don't think it is. There's nothing in the right column that says "cheezburger".

4chan does not have anything good about it ... so in the real world, when we deal with positives and negatives, 4chan deals with scales of negatives. So the correct verbosity would be "the worst of 4chan" ...

P.S. Awesome link BTW

I'm sorry. I suppose that instead of "the best of 4chan" I should have said "the parts of 4chan that do not cause the average non-4chan member to vomit instantaneously". I regret my error.

Even though I originally posted the link, this is only the second time I've visited the site, and this time for five whole minutes, and I've finally realized it: this site is actually quite humorous (maybe in smaller doses, but I always take my doses as such).

Anyway, and neeedless to say, here is content (which, ironically, I still have yet to find on the actual website from which it says it came from).

Would anybody mind at all if I also used this now-revived topic to place in another cheezburger site of influence: Oddly Specific Street Signs & Consumer Labels
I'd rather not start another thread, and these two memes (I might never get the hang of this word) seem to go along nicely... any objections?
(silence is good enough for me)

So I now entwine the two (and might ask to change the thread title later)...

I forgot exactly what this was in relation to... I still think it was actually used a film.


Just looked it up: "Wish You Were Here", by Pink Floyd.
"shaking hands with the devil" (fire) cover just touched the surface of this great piece of vinyl.
Inside was the beautiful images of the faceless record salesman (earth), the red veil in the
trees (wind) and the diver in the lake (water)...

I know I'm probably talking to myself here, but does attributing documentation, sources, and more importantly, actual context, to these images detract from their "random", three-lettered appeal? It is like I'm giving them a reason as to why this event or happenstance came about, when really, it's the mystery and intrigue which makes them all the more appealing. I'd be real interested in what you (anyone) think.
