Things We Saw Today: Disney Face Swapping

The internet is now swapping the faces of Disney characters. The result? Weird eye feelings. (via Disney Face Swap)

  • Speaking of Tumblr, Neil Gaiman has one! You should check it out here!
  • Jill Filipovic of Feministe got a surprise in her luggage after it was, evidently, inspected by TSA agents. They were, evidently, amused to find a vibrator in said luggage.

    Filipovic wrote:

    “Total violation of privacy, wildly inappropriate and clearly not ok, but I also just died laughing in my hotel room.”

    • Our Jill Pantozzi was interviewed in this CNN piece that covers women in comics, why there are so few, and why illustrations of them have to be so, um, exaggerated.
    • Paranormal Activity 3 made $54 million this past weekend, making it the best opening for a horror movie ever. (Vulture via Flavorwire)

    Hey, check it out: It’s Stephanie Bendixsen, a presenter on Australia’s Good Game, on her Throne of Games. Get it? (via Global Geek News)

    Whoever the woman is who married and had a baby with this man, she is the luckiest girl in the world. Because this is Baby’s First Halloween. (via So Geek Chic)

    James Hance, creator of “relentlessly cheerful” artwork, has come up with this adorable mashup: Baloobacca and the Hancub. (pic via Popped Culture)

      Man, i really don’t know how to react to the TSA vibrator thing! On the one hand, its totally gross and creepy that they had the gall to write a fucking note. But on the other hand, its a hilarious witty comment!

      Was it ticking?

      Airport Security Officer:
      Actually throwers don’t worry about ticking ’cause modern bombs don’t tick.

      Sorry, throwers?

      Airport Security Officer:
      Baggage handlers. But, when a suitcase vibrates, then the throwers gotta call the police.

      My suitcase was vibrating?

      Airport Security Officer:
      Nine times out of ten it’s an electric razor, but every once in a while…


      Airport Security Officer:
      it’s a dildo. Of course it’s company policy never to, imply ownership in
      the event of a dildo… always use the indefinite article a dildo,
      never your dildo.

      I don’t own…

      I wonder what gender the person who wrote that comment was.

    • Terence Ng

      Disney Swap gave me my first genuine WTF moment of the day. Love it.

    • Abel Undercity

      Ehh, I’m more on the “creeped” than “tickled” side of the TSA story. 

    • Francesca M

      The Face swap thing creeps me the hell out.

      The TSA thing cracks me up. It was innappropriate for them to comment on it but it was funny, and honestly bags are randomly searched, I’ve found that ticket in my bag a number of times. The best is when they don’t screw the cap back properly on the midol and it ends up all over the suitcase. Also just a note, when it comes to devices that vibrate (my sonic toothbrush for  crying out loud) I take it apart so it won’t vibrate. Because I don’t want them to get any clever ideas of it being an incendiary device or a vibrator. Take the batteries out. Yeesh.

    • Stephen Dudley McPherson

      Throne of games, I love it!

    • JoAnna Luffman

      I find the TSA thing amusing. Seems more approving than insulting. 

      If you’re that ashamed of your sex toys, don’t take them with you. Someone might see! While you’re at it, go ahead and get a nice floor length dress, because someone might see your ankles, and get aroused. I’m not worried someone might see I like toys. Hell, I have kids, so I must have had some sex, and with more than one, I probably liked doing it.

      TSA comment = completely unprofessional, but I definitely wouldn’t care. That would make my day… heck, my WEEK… to get that note.

      Yes, very funny, I would’ve laughed like hell, too. Then I would’ve burned the damned vibe because EW. D:

      That Ghostbuster/Stay Puft costume set is indeed awesome–but why do I have the feeling that the ‘luckiest girl in the world’ is actually the one who made both of them?

    • Hannah Woodard

      So apparently the TSA note-writer got in trouble… Can’t say I’m surprised, but I feel a little sorry for him/her.
