This article is part of the The Strangest Fan Art series.
Today, January 24, was supposed to be the day U.S. senators and representatives voted on SOPA/PIPA, the Internet-restricting bills that would have rendered me and my Something Awful co-workers completely lifeless, like powered-down robots. But thanks to well-informed activists and inconvenienced Wikipedia users alike, this grim fate has been postponed. Still, it's important to remain vigilant, because otherwise the SA Forum Goons won't be able to post bizarre fan art for your viewing pleasure! Can you image a world without unrestricted access to Napoleon Dynamite/Lion King crossovers and My Little Pony Steve Jobs tributes? Probably! And fondly! But the price of freedom is the eternal proliferation of anime versions of your favorite celebrities and fictional characters. Note: if you're interested in tracking down the artists, deviants, and deviantARTists responsible for these truly bizarre creations, and you don't see a signature or watermark, try clicking and dragging them into Google Images!
The Saddest Rhino
After years of being misunderstood, I had hoped we finally had "our" story. I was wrong.
He had a yellow inflatable tube around his waist, the kind with a comical duck head. There was a tiny fish in one of his hands, and a trident in the other. In the background a squirrel wearing shades was water skiing.
For fans of meaningless awards, these awards are extra meaningless.
The Comedy Goldmine examines the funniest and most creative threads from the Something Awful Forums. Although the Comedy Goldmine has changed authors many times over the years, its focus on the Something Awful Forums is still the same. Includes hilarious Photoshops, amusing work stories, parodies, and other types of oddball humor.
The SA Forum Goons just found these things online. They didn't actually create them, or if they did, they certainly didn't take credit for doing so! Regardless, they braved some iffy corners of the Internet to gather these images; leave the scary searching to them and reap the benefits!
