It started out with a simple Facebook post, sharing an article posted at Mashable on how the Internet had a field day Photoshopping Kim Kardashian's butt from her "Paper Magazine" cover. Then, there was a dare by my Facebook friend, Linda Rogers, to Photoshop Kim's butt with my "almost famous" Bun Anus meme. I rejected this [...]

Goods are made for companies such as Burberry, Range Rover, and [...]
