Remember the trailer for the movie Red Eye? It started out like one thing (a romantic comedy), but then it turned into something completely different (a lame PG-13-rated thriller)! That's kind of what happened when Montcrief Lanier posted a thread asking the SA Forum Goons to Photoshop the red eye out of a picture of one of his friends. The Goons complied, but their generous spirit prevented them from stopping at such a simple correction! They fixed everything else, too, then they made new mistakes, and, well, maybe they didn't find time to fix those, but their hearts were in the right place! The Photoshops might not be up to this section's usual caliber, but you'd be an ingrate to criticize the work of people who are volunteering their time and effort, expecting nothing in return!
Montcrief Lanier's starter image:
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
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.
