A bad tattoo, ironic Subway promotion and cat-based optical illusion.
Welcome to another edition of the Best Picture I Saw This Week. Small talk over. Here are the picks…
Second runner up: Subway gets it
There’s plenty to criticize here (although going after one individual Subway franchise for being tone deaf feels a pit aggressive). I will say: Subway does make a surprisingly good peanut butter cookie. Maybe not foot-losingly good, but still good.
First runner up: The Pokemon tattoo
I’m not a Pokemon guy, but I am a bad tattoo guy. (In that I appreciate them as an art form. I am far too much of a coward to have a tattoo, either good or bad.) The photo above was huge on Reddit this week; a guy apparently tried to give himself a tattoo of a Pokemon character while he was drunk. This is the character he was going for…
So as you can see, he really nailed it.
Ever since that blue+black/white+gold dress, the Internet has been on the hunt for its successor. This… isn’t it. But I did appreciate the M.C. Escher-esque properties of this cat photo and I stared at it long enough that it, at least, deserves this seat at the table. It’s also one of the first cat photos I’ve ever shared in my life. (I have settled on “up.”)
