This article is part of the The Strangest Fan Art series.
During last week's time of crisis, people took to the Internet to make charitable donations, maintain social connections under lockdown conditions, keep up with breaking news, and, to a much lesser extent, draw tearful ponies and animes "paying their respects" to the bombing victims. I'm not including any of these "tributes" - except the Boston Ninja Turtle - but after posting a lot of those things, the SA Forum Goons returned to their regular routine of tracking down normal, everyday, fairly fucking crazy (but familiar and comforting, in its way) online fan art.
Note: If morbid curiosity compels you to track down the artists, deviants, and deviantARTists responsible for these drawings/paintings, try clicking and dragging them into Google Images!

TOTAL WRECK - crazy-eyed hound is covered in cobwebs, has a vespiary on back, graffiti on side and savage thirst for boat fuel. Frankly, I'm in over my head. He's in room 115 at Motel 6, yours free. 555-2851

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!
