ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
['shopped by Xeni Jardin / click for grande ]
That’s….um, lovely, Xeni.
You can help me put it on the fridge. Not on the front, on the side
Xeni you have defined our zeitgeist, or weltkÃ¤tzchen. And may I say, gesundheit.
Aw Xeni, I like it with the little cupcake in the background above the astronaut! It’s super cute and balances the piece out wonderfully.
Oh, I forgot about that layer. It felt too distracting to me at full saturation, I’ll pull it down a little and blur and darken, to simulate distance, then re-upload here.
i know it’s shopped because there are no crosshairs in the sky, what are you trying to hide? Also there are more stars in your moon’s horizon than NASA’s moon.

As it’s been a full 24hrs since the post, it’s far too old for anyone to see this. .
Gene really should have written Tracy on that rock.
I am 12 years old and what is this?
what is this? i don’t even
Xeni – This is pure genius. I’ll bet you could get a federal arts grant. Clearly, the black and white portion represents the rape of history by future Info-Miners and that the kitten is symbolizing your reaction to the loss of man’s technological innocence. And those cupcakes are obviously a strong feminist statement. You could get $12,000 for this. Another $5K if you manage to work in 9/11.
I saw it FRIST!!
Jesus, man — HOW DID YOU KNOW?
This is an appropriate chaser to Sock Monkey Centipede. Thank you, Xeni. I may actually sleep tonight thanks to your meme-y artistry.
One small step for meme. One giant leap for memekind.
One small step for a meme…
“Houston, we have a…awwwww”
This looks like a shop. I can tell by the pixels, and from seeing quite a few shops in my time.
Actually, the only shopped part is the moon landing.
Some conspiracy theories are history, written by the conquered.
But some aren’t…
If tiny Neil there tried to do battle with Sad Kitten-Lunar Defender, he would lose. Just look at the size of those cupcake missiles. And all Armstrong has is a golf club back in the trunk next to the spare.
If that were /really/ a vacuum, then the frosting on the cupcakes would sizzle & freeze-dry!
(Like I was cringing, during, the movie Wall-E when they exposed that fragile little plant to hard vacuum..!)
@cjp That’s not Neil Armstrong. It’s Scientist-Astronaut Harrison H. “Jack” Schmitt, on the Apollo 17 mission, taken during the 3rd EVA at Taurus-Littrow.
One way you can tell it’s not Apollo 11 or any mission prior to Apollo 15 is that the earlier landings all targetted completely flat, open sites, out of safety concerns. It wasn’t until Apollo 15 that that crews and mission planners had gained enough confidence to target rugged, mountainous areas.
Somewhere, Tom Selleck is crying into a damp Reuben.
full of the awesome.

My mind totally turned Reuben into Paul Reubens…
Think it’s time to change my meds.
This needs to be on velvet…
It is missing a rainbow… Better make that a double.
nope, still no intelligent life.
My art teacher told us not to put red on the border of a composition. Does pink count?
not when it’s not art.
Only the true artist denies her art.
> Well what sort of a chance does THAT give me??! Okay, it IS art
IT IS IT IS HUZZAH!!
Both of my parents were working artists, and I actually did go to art school, and a very good one. But I dropped out to learn internets. True story.
you can tell the kitty was in a studio, the shadows from the cupcakes are all wrong.
I am here to inform you that this is a pretty smashing iPad lock screen.
Yep, just found my new wallpaper. Why go with just plain old Aurora or Hubble images, when you can get a sad kitten, cupcakes, and a moonscape with an astronaut in the mix!
The trouble with Tribbles…
Xeni, you have jumped the shark.
Is this a Xeni original?
Credit / Source / Link to layered source file?
yes, i shooped it myself. that’s why it sucks so bad!
Requesting layered (PSD?) file for remix.
Here is the PSD for your remixing funtime. Attribution/noncommercial if you please!
Yo Dawg, I heard you like memes. So we put a meme in your meme…
It needs something…
There, fixed it!
Where is kitteh’s dry erase board?
I eated it.
