Pets In Uniform, submitted by me. Just when I thought I was out they pulled me back in. Last week I featured a horrible collection of cats that had been digitally altered so they appeared to be wearing wedding dresses and hippie clothes, and considered it a done deal. Then this morning during an innocuous Google image search I came across a site that not only edited pictures of pets so they appeared to be wearing clothes, but also made them somehow more frightening than last week's site and DEMANDED PAYMENT for this utterly useless task.
The person who runs the site is a published author who actually wrote a book explaining how to use Photoshop. Did you catch that? An actual book. Chapter 1: Copy, Chapter 2: Paste, Chapter 3: Thanks for buying my book suckers. For anyone struggling to get a book deal this is a kick in the balls which gains momentum and goes on to puncture your entire lower torso.
Imagine: your dog, cat, or other pet in full military regalia. I make this fantasy a reality. Using the latest digital techniques, I combine a photo of your pet with the uniform and background of your choice.

Yes, it's the perfect form for surviving a car crash. But it's also the perfect form for so much more, like surviving the trauma of reading any news headline in 2016.
