So outside my serious work, I like to have fun and stage a Christmas card photo each year. They've evolved from my rowdy college days into a bit more tableau-like with the dark comedy I love. Last night I threw the last 4 years into an imgur gallery and submitted them to Reddit.
19 hours later I peaked at #3 on r/funny with over 27,000 votes and was #9 overall on Reddit. Bigger than that, each image has over 600,000 views on imgur (and I've used almost half a terabyte of their bandwidth--yikes!)
So in the spirit of the holidays, enjoy a weird project from my younger days:
here's the imgur gallery
here's the reddit thread
PS: 3 (serious) new projects coming soon!
A small follow up: all the cards got over 800,000 hits on imgur and popped up a few other places:
-An article on the frontpage of MSN: "24 Christmas cards that will make you laugh (or cringe)"
-#6 in HappyPlace.com's "34 of the most jovially insane family holiday cards ever sent”'
-a gallery on UberHumor.com
-and another gallery on Funny-City.com
Turned out to be a lot of fun!
