# Indeed.
I'm trying to see through the eye of the beholders who find it funny. Analysing humour is always fatal, but I feel that there's something I'm missing here and I really want to know what it is.

# Ach, it never usually does.
I've done plenty of faceswaps myself, I'm not trying to come across all holier-than-thou here. It's just that I think of them as a means to an end: for me a faceswap is a way of telling a joke, and not an actual joke in and of itself.

Which makes it difficult for me to expect anyone else to explain why they find faceswaps funny.

One assumes it is related to Veet. I think it would take more than Veet to clear Kirsten's beard.

# a faceswap tends to walk a very fine line
between funny and simply a technical achievement

If it makes you laugh you're quids in, if it makes you go "well done, good use of photoshop/after effects/whatever tool you followed a tutorial for" then it probably shouldn't be posted here, but on a photoshop/after effects/whatever forum instead.

Same applies to furry/photo/straight artwork posts (in my utterly pointless opinion)

# Well, yeah.
I guess the other point is: faceswaps are staggeringly easy to do. Cut out one person's face, paste it onto another person's head, blend the edges. You've got a convincing faceswap in about 30 seconds.

# That is such a terrible idea
We'd get about 5,000 entries as everyone rushes to repost their reams of shops of someone's face on someone else's face, and then I wouldn't win. Much like every week except for the face on face business. Even though I came up with gems like this:

Life is hard.

# I'd vote for this.
But then, I like birds. That's probably why I like these a lot more than human-to-human faceswaps.

# A friend of mine once suggested I sell them as postcards
Alas, since I've stolen every photo without credit, I suspect this wouldn't be entirely legal. Still, I enjoy them.

# They all look so old, they're probably well out of copyright.

# Nah
The soliders are well out of copyright - I think the newest is from 1905 or so (except the shot from "The Wind that Shook the Barley") - but the birds are all recent shots taken down from Flickr, and I've never even tracked what licenses they're under. I doubt they're under the "Photoshop and sell!" license, though...

On the other hand, if I see any other cunt selling these I am going to get the law on them SO HARD. Maybe I should start watermarking stuff.
