Best New Desktop Image?

The McDonalds on 3rd street has a playground, and the playground has this Ronald McDonald mural. And it is creepy. Especially from a distance, when you're walking up the street. Also, especially from up close, when you're taking a picture of it. It's like an unsung NYC landmark.

I believed until I saw this:

Interesting, no? It's weird that people spend their time pointlessly altering pictures. My favourite one was the creature from "Aliens" that'd been photoshopped to look like Venom.

pointlessly? you took the time to pick out a favorite... I think that is "point" enough.

As I understand it, the "Aliens" one was done for a fan-film. The other was not.

I'm sure we could debate the nature of "pointlessness" but I was being hyperbolic so it'd be a waste of our time.

Also, I hate that painting of Ronald McDonald. He always looks like he's going to loom over the children, eyes glowing red, and whisk them away to some alternate dimension.

I really wanted that picture to be real.

Of Spidey, not Ronald.
