And finally, December. Thank God, because my fingers are tired of pounding on these keys. If you think reviewing a whole years worth of OFTOT photoshops and writing about them, recapping month-by-month, is easy, you're effing WRONG! You'd be surprised at how long it took. Mostly the writing part. Picking my favs wasn't terribly difficult.
Anyways, I hope you've enjoyed the last 12 months of OFTOT as much as I have. I know I've mentioned it from time-to-time this season, but I very much appreciate all your support and I feel truly blessed to have y'all as my Steelers-loving crew. Being separated from your Steeler fan friends by geography can be tough, but through OFTOT I've found a way to make it work. Hopefully it's had a similarly positive impact on y'all. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm just gonna go lift some weights, watch a porn, and start a fight. Hey, gotta relocate my balls somehow, right?
Here is the culmination, as they say, of the Top OFTOT Photoshops of 2008 - the month of December.
FUBU - For U, Ben...U?
It's tough to really call this "one of the best." I mean, I just did it like yesterday. But I think it was a long time coming. The only problem I have with this is that Ben's head is on a kids body. And kids are, well, small, while Ben is, well, big. So it kind of looks jacked up. But quite honestly, that probably just makes it more funny. We should definitely buy more FUBU sweats for Ben. It's like I always say, you can never have enough fresh FUBU gear.
You know, 'cause when we played the Cowboys, Mr. December, Tony Romo threw a whole bunch of picks. Including one to Deshea that cost him the game, during the waning minutes, much like Neil O'Donnell did in Super Bowl XXX against Big D. By the way, you may have missed it, because it happened days after this was posted, but apparently I'm "the reason no one likes Steeler fans."
Now, there's some sound logic. Ok...
A. Last time I checked, not everyone disliked Steeler fans, and
B. I seriously doubt I, as a lowly Steelers blogger, could ever have such a profound impact on Steeler Nation as to be called "the reason why no one likes Steeler fans"
Nice try, though. Next time, read the post before you comment. And learn how to spell, "miscue." There's an "e" on the end, there.
2008 AFC North Division Champs!
Ok, so this photoshop originally appeared well earlier than the day we beat the Ravens for the division. But it lent itself much better to this cause than whatever the hell I used it for the first time around.
And just for good measure...
Two weeks ago, Ben threw two picks and fumbled four times. That, to me, sounded like time for him to do some serious thinking. Look at how deep in thought he is, there. You think he's trying to decide what color FUBU sweats to buy as a guilt purchase? Or maybe whether or not he should've shared a joint with Sansmokio before the game? Yeah, he's probably just picturing Tomlin naked. I know I would be...wait, what?
Are You There, God? It's Me, Benjamin.
I can see Ben in my head now. Sitting next to his bed with his hands folded, placed gingerly on top of the bed spread. Unfortunately, while I can see that, I can't even begin to see how this was at all relevant to yesterday's post. Doesn't really matter, how can you not laugh at that? Finding pictures of athletes when they were young is pretty funny by itself. Pasting their young heads onto the cover of a Judy Blume classic, to me, borders on hilarity. Of course, I feel the same way about "that's what she said" jokes. So I can't really be relied upon to judge what is/is not borderline hilarious. Which reminds me, how did I get through a whole year in review without saying "that's what she said," once?
Not important, this will fix that...
Now, if you feel so inclined, let me know if any of these particularly struck your fancy as well...
Here's the rundown of the 11 other months of OFTOT Top Photoshops...
Feel free to do the same with all. This shit took me a long time to do. So your input is a highly valued commodity.
