Vodka is the king of the alcohols in Russia with an estimated 1.417 billion litres sold in 2012. Alcohol abuse in Russia is reaching alarming levels, and it is estimated that one in every five male deaths is linked to alcohol. The consumption of beer in on such a rise that Russian government has taken steps to reclassify beer as alcohol, and not food.
Everyday I’m Drinking is a song by Russian band Little Big and tells of the nation’s obsession with alcohol and dire outlook on life. It’s bizarre, disturbing, and depressing given the statistics but it does have rather a catchy tune.
In her series of 54 “pop reinterpretations”, illustrator Hillary White applies acrylic to canvas and re-imagines classic artworks to include characters from popular films, TV shows, cartoons, and comics.
White paints her reinterpretations in the same style as the old masters would have done and amusingly replaces James Whistler’s mother with a teenage mutant ninja turtle, inserts the hulking Voltron into a Monet, and has Big Bird explaining the musculature of Kermit’s arm to the Muppets in oil painting by Rembrandt.

deviantART user HumanDescent from the U.K. has a vivid imagination. The digital artist thinks up what different species of animal would look like if they were interbred, and with the power of Photoshop, makes that union happen. Nosferatu is mashed up with a frog to create Nosferafrog. A Rabbick is a rabbit combined with a baby chicken, and one of his cutest creations is a Pog.
Have a look at some of his hilariously bizarre animal morphs after the jump.
