Run Free, Montauk Monster Meme!

Garfield - Garfield + Monster

I’m delighted to have been present for the birth of a new internet meme, the whimsical Montauk Monster. This little guy is so easy to Photoshop, and soon he’ll infect the current news cycle with his pointlessness. it was mere hours before Christopher Price sent up this Garfield minus Garfield Plus Monster . What’s next?

    Hidey ho good neighbor.

    And yes, that is the dumbest thing you’ll see all day. Possibly ever.

    This is all going to go sour, once everyone realizes it’s actually a dead, messed up dog (or so I hear).

    A mirror image!

    *Warning! Extended finger visible in photograph, and it is not the index or the pinky.*

    *Another warning: very amatuerish!*

    Sorry, how was his web page changed? I don’t see a difference.

    i don’t have photoshop at work, but he looks like he’s just *asking* to be shopped into the “star child” scene at the end of 2001…

    Now we just have to prove that this guy ate Garfield and I will be happy.

    Could someone do the Ctrl+Alt+Del miscarriage meme? I love that one.
