My brain is hurt. Manbabies.

OK. Photomanipulation has gone quite far enough. You can all stop now.

I mean, LOLCats was funny enough, but this thing has gone TOO FAR.
I don't care that it started innocently.

And it doesn't help that I found it by reading the tv-tropes site on the topic of The Uncanny Valley ... which refers to human-anthropomorphic crossings that just are just plain disturbing.

Also the Little Girl Giant is just plain disturbing (especially starting at 1:20).

Which, the ManBabies, or the Little Girl Giant?

I find her highly unnerving because she looks like pictures I've seen of Penny as a girl, and somewhat like my nieces when they were little - and their dad says they look a lot like she did then (sorta - they look a bit more like their mom.)

My face is pretty much spot on with the icon.

LOLCats doesn't wallow around in the Uncanny Valley.

On the other hand they have taken grammatical tweakiness beyond the point of cuteness and firmly into the too-twee-for-words (even in LOL) camp.

Although some of them still "get" how to tweak things without seeming simply forced-stupid.

I like Uncanny Valley. Uncomfortable trumps ultracute for me any day. :)
