Sleeveface

Always yearned to body double for Barbara Streisand or Paul Holmes?  No, me neither.  But, if I did want to, then Sleeveface is where I would post the evidence. 

Put a record sleeve or CD case in front of your face, align your body with the person on the cover, get a mate to take a pic and then send it to Sleeveface.  Awes.

Check out some of the more inventive photo submissions below.  The best are planned for a Sleevefaces book.

Resign sweetly from your job by cake

This is one unusual way to hand in your notice at work.

Neil Berrett sugared the pill of his departure from Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, San Francisco, by announcing his intentions in icing.

He posted a picture of the huge baked message on Flickr , the photo sharing website.

In the letter, Mr Berrett wrote: “Dear Mr. Bowers – During the past three years, my tenure at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard has been nothing short of pure excitement, joy and whim.

“However, I have decided to spend more time with my family and attend to health issues that have recently arisen. I am proud to have been part of such an outstanding team and I wish this organization only the finest in future endeavors.

“Please accept this cake as notification that I am leaving my position with NWT on March 27. Sincerely, W. Neil Berrett”.

But get this, it doesn’t end there.  One of Berrett’s followers on Flickr used his intiative and offered Berrett’s employers a baked version of his CV!

He wrote: “Dear Mr. Bowers – I understand a position has recently become available and I would like you to consider me for the job.

“I am not entirely sure what it entails, but I am very smart, a quick learner and flexible. I am also able to recognize an opportunity as it presents itself and take advantage of it, even if it arrives disguised as a photo of a sheet cake.”

If you work hard at it with some freaky hot mouse-finger action, you will be rewarded with slight dizziness.  I know, totally rad and 100% free.

Bullet sharp

Wow! Check these amazing images of a bullet slicing it’s way through paper and stuff.

True stories behind those WTF pictures

You know those pictures you see that make you go WTF!?!  Cracked explains the story behind some legendary images.

Most people have already seen the following images in the ‘WTF’ sections of social bookmarking sites, in threads dedicated to badass pictures or just circulated through their inboxes by the “funny” boss. There is never an explanation for these pictures, because they seem to intrinsically defy explanation; they are just still moments in time of unbelievable scope, and epic badassery.

That’s Mark Madson, and the truck behind him is actually a tree-house he built for his son, Luke, in the town of Beloit, Wisconsin. So, on the downside, the truck-in-tree was not the fantastic drunken feat of a modern day redneck Paul Bunyan, but actually just a pretty slick – if dangerously negligent – act of charity from a father to his son.

Jill Greenburg: Monkeys, dogs and bears

These portraits of monkeys, dogs and bears seem to show more emotion and feeling than some human portraits do.
