ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Enjoy these unsettling pictures of Mitt Romney with a very tiny face.
They look like Jay Leno.
Dude just got facesmalled.
It’s called “gnopping”
I’m sure the boys at b3ta could do a better job of gnopsing Mitt than this — the only thing is, he’s not really anyone yet, so why bother?
It’s not like I really needed to ever sleep again.
I was more tickled by the Paul Ryan photoshopping thread on Reddit last night.
Reuben Glaser, the cre3axor of this, seems to have a very promising future as a prankster: http://www.wisn.com/Teens-Campaign-For-County-Office-May-Be-Prank/-/9374034/8045074/-/item/0/-/318pen/-/index.html
Romney reviewed his face over the last 10 years and it’s always at least 13% of his head. Most recently it was 13.6%, or something like that.
I dislike Willard Mittens Romney’s politics and blatant hypocrisy, but this is too ad hominem for me. Imagine if this was done to President Obama. How would you feel?
If it worked as well with anyone else’s face, I’d be equally amused. I believe, and I may be wrong, please correct me if I am, but this is a bit of visual humor that works because of this particular individual’s giant heed. Anyone in the public eye could have been the subject of these photo manipulations if the auteur had so chosen.
I have been trying to decide if Mitt’s head is huge or Paul Ryan’s is really, really small.
Not quite the same thing (I think Woll-ing is more disturbing) but there’s like 4 Obama examples if you’re interested.
YOU DON’T DO THIS STUPID SMALL FACE CRAP WITH OBAMA!!!!
Obama’s pics must have huge ears! DUH! http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-EvhSMlal50k/TgkgfApso6I/AAAAAAAALyg/g1Cbfj95s7A/s1600/ears%252C%2Bobama%2Bcartoons.jpg
Or make him pale skinned. http://fellowshipofminds.files.wordpress.com/2011/06/white-obama.jpg
WHY SO SERIOUS?
And yet still less disturbing than Trump’s hair.
That hair definitely looks like the sloppier photoshop job in this picture.
The scene from the movie “The Magic Christian” with Ringo Starr and Peter Sellers: Ringo is doing face exercises.
He opens his mouth as wide as it will go… “Silent Scream, try to tear your face apart”.
He smushes his face as small as he can… “Tiny Face, try to make your face disappear”.
I remember that scene.
Great, now I’m having the flashbacks again…
OH SWEET BONGO-BANGING JEEZUZ KILL IT WITH FIRE
Oh, man. As if he wasn’t creepy enough…
Preparation H abuse… that puffiness has to go somewhere.
I knew that I was old the day that I was having head shots done and my stylist pulled out a tube of Preparation H.
I approve of this meme; here’s my contribution.
NFI how to put something up on tumblr.
I like your work. It’s subtle, yet refreshing. The Freshmaker.
Ha nice one. My favorite actually.
Huh? That’s just Romney’s normal face …
at first glance i thought it was newt gingrich
You know what they say, small face, tiny _____.
Fat ass Newt!
Is there a big face thing?
Oh yee of little face!
This reminds me of a perceptual oddity that used to happen to me as a child. When on the edge of sleep, my sense of proportion and distance would fluctuate wildly, causing me to perceive the world a bit like that.
This one… http://littlefacemitt.tumblr.com/post/29997326719
look closely at Ryan in the background… took me a while to figure out what was wrong…
Cool. I’m not really all that perturbed that I can’t unsee that. Seems…appropriate.
Thank you for the morning laughs, Rob :) Great post.
Wasn’t there a guy in Dick Tracy who looked like this?
Yeah. Can’t remember his name, but one of the most disturbing people in Warren Beatty’s Dick Tracy movie, which was full of unrecognizable character actors in grotesque makeup.
