Given the amount of DeviantArt tips I receive in the Awful Link inbox, a submission really has to do something special (read: especially stupid) to stand out. Karinto draws grotesquely muscled anime bodybuilder ladies (*hand toggles in "so/so" gesture, denoting a fairly common level of creepiness/craziness*), but his gallery also contains this gem:
Yes, someone has actually devoted time to making fetishistic Rachel McLish fan art based on her appearance in Aces: Iron Eagle III, her lone feature film. "Iron Eagle III was noteworthy as one of the first films to cast a woman as a physically strong character," Karinto writes, daring to recognize this underappreciated movie's vital contributions to the feminist pantheon. The lone IMDB quote from Iron Eagle III -- "nice hat!" -- doesn't really work as praise for this image, unless you're using "hat" as slang for some kind of muscle, which -- you can't just coin phrases willy-nilly for your Iron Eagle III-referencing convenience! Anyway, it could pass as praise for the crown donned by Karinto's hideous version of the White Witch from the Narnia books (the little clip-art-kitten-looking lion in the corner is Aslan).
I returned to the inbox to look around for other Iron Eagle-related material, but I couldn't find any more exact matches. Still, enjoy these search-term near-misses: Extreme IRONing and a bunch of crying EAGLEs. Glory, glory, hallelujah.
Finding the right hat can feel like walking through a minefield for guys. Did a murderer wear your hat? Was it ruined by bros? Are you just an idiot? Find out with our authoritative ranking of bad hats.
The Amazonians value combat prowess and purity of spirit. By wrestling half naked, they pay homage to both virtues by displaying their battle-forged bodies while preserving as much modesty as their society deems necessary. The gelatin in which they wrestle is symbolic of the fluid nature of battle, a concept the Amazonians call ‘akgor-gra.’
