As part of a recent American Iconomics exhibition held at The Shooting Gallery in San Francisco, artist James Charles showed off his series of pop culture American dollar bills. What started as simple doodles for his amusement quickly grew into a bigger thing and Charles found himself not only altering presidents’ faces but also modifying the fonts and adding humourous scripts to actual American currency. His pop culture dollar bills include iconic faces from movies to TV to politics. Have a look at some of his creations below.
Today is a good day for food fail, and it seems we’ve found a special at McDonald’s in Cape Town. Some people are cackling about it while others are feeling sick to their stomachs.
Popular South African blogger, Christopher Graham Mills of imod.co.za isn’t normally a patron of McDonald’s but yesterday evening, events forced him to purchase a burger at the branch in Kenilworth. To his surprise, he found what looks like a garden-variety snail tucked away in his burger box. We can imagine he exclaimed “Nee Fok!” before taking a photo of it and uploading it to Twitpic.
The order was McEscargot, with garlic sauce, and a chicken burger on the side.
Meanwhile, in another part of town, in Long Street, someone making their opinion about McDonald’s known by making some minor alterations to a rather large advertising billboard. It’s succinct and does get the point across.
Have you had any interesting experiences at McDonald’s? Do let us know.

Oser also started a website to encourage people to make submit their own FUCK-ups.

Student Rory McInnes secretly made a secret addition to his parent’s 1-million pound house. Inspired after watching a documentary on Google Earth, Rory grabbed a tin of white paint, hopped onto the roof of the family home and spent half an hour drawing a 60-foot willy!
The massive phallus went unnoticed for a year until a helicopter pilot spotted it, and hovered so his passenger could take photos. His parents were only made aware when a UK newspaper contacted them for a comment.
Company director Andy, 54, thought it was a wind-up when The Sun contacted him about the painting.
Andy then spoke to all four of his kids demanding answers.
When he phoned Rory — in Brazil as part of his gap year travels — the lad burst out laughing, saying: “Oh, you’ve found it then!”
Rory’s mum Clare, 49, said: “We don’t want any more children, so the idea of sleeping under a giant fertility symbol is rather worrying.”
