The title led me to believe this would be either a really interesting porn or tabloid story.
I was expecting Perry aka Agent P but to know avail
but then again a platypus doesnt do much
Custom painting = the worst looking photoshop filter I could find.
I was thinking a similar thing until I looked at the “wall” behind them. Apparently it was either done by hand or there is a photoshop filter that removes perspective too.
Or just put paper up to the monitor and traced the original….which I do sometimes when I wish I could draw.
If they’d traced it they would have a done a better job!
Doobee doobee doo wa Agent P!
I love you… let’s have semi-aquatic, egg-laying mammals of mystery together.
It looks like he’s marrying himself in a wig. The photo itself is freaking me out way more than the crude drawing.
I can’t stop seeing it. Are they twins separated at birth? Cloning gone awry? Alternate timeline wedding? Doctor Who episode? Jerry Springer Episode?
Oh…oh fuck you. Now I see it too. Fffffuck.
I vote alternate timeline wedding.
…Oh wait, it wasn’t a poll?
Also, there’s something going on, she has another listing for custom drawing and the couple there share the same peculiar chin.
She made a cute couple look like Barbra Streisand got engaged to Nick Lachey.
Don’t talk bad about Babs like that. She can turn into a mecha.
Etsy needs to start posting a “how delusional is this person?” poll or something.
I don’t think they have the bandwidth.
NASA doesn’t even have that kind of bandwidth.
It’s a shame they both caught leprosy like that.
Two families are becoming one today, so please do not pick a side, pick a skin disease.
No don’t, the doctor says not to pick at it.
Oh geez! He is such a scab!
I’d say that one family is becoming even smaller. Those poor children, with that hereditary duck-face and poor camera angle syndrome…
Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see.
I would have said they were a pair of Spoonbills.
Actually they are dodos for having this done to their picture.
Dodos knew better to go extinct before Etsy’s very existence.
Maybe a more appropriate title would have been
We both married platypi
This, yeah, I LOVE it, I wonder if they’d do a whole family portrait… I just need to see my entire family immortalized as platypi. SPECTACULAR.
OH! I GET IT! This is one of those magnetic pictures where you draw their noses with little metal filings! What a totes adorable idea for a save the date card!!
I would love a card like that. I would keep it forever and ever.
I’m so sorry… I don’t want to be this guy… The plural of platypus is Platypodes. It’s Greek not Latin.
According to dictionary.com, it’s either platypuses or platypi. Autocorrect seems to like platypuses. Says it went from Greek to Neo-Latin. I think there’s a similar thing with octopus not being octopi, but octopi has just become accepted. Ah, just looked it up, and it’s the EXACT same thing. Greek to Neo-Latin. Endings can be -puses or -pi. I think -puses may be more correct.
I’m afraid I call them octopodes too, lol.
So… instead of cacti, cactodes?
This sounds like a load of anodes.
Please. This is anodi in greek. (Shit you not.)
I’m not talkin’ electronics here…
No, he’s right – the plural is platypodes, or would be, if “platypus” was an actual Greek word and not just an English construct borrowed from Greek. In English the plural is platypuses – platypi is for the self-consciously ironic (a.k.a. hipsters).
Still not as annoying as people who pluralize anonymous as anonymi.
Given your name,, I think that we can give you a pass for platequitte
I vote for not being that guy in favor of being the guy who knows what someone meant anyway, and would rather just have a good time drinking with everyone else at the BYOB online Regretsy party.
*hic* (not the Latin kind).
Oh man, their kids are so screwed in the nose department. Also, I highly suspect their relationship is incestual.
Wait ’til her eggs hatch. Poor babies.
As a large-nosed person myself, I half blame them for agreeing to be photographed from that angle. I can’t explain where the perspective went but the noses may have been left blank out of politeness, or fear. If you suck at drawing portraits then schnozes like that are a minefield.
Alas, like the erasered penises in a pornographic manga, the absence just emphasizes what we all know is there.
Wait, what is this ‘pornographic manga” of which you speak?
Perhaps I am better not knowing…
Anything made in Japan for salarymen to read unabashedly on the train. There are prudish laws about drawing penises and penetration so sometimes you’ll see this graphic picture of two or more people doing the most acrobatic things, and right in the middle there is a fuzzy-edged blank spot, sometimes with a girl’s hand wrapped lovingly around it.
They say tentacle porn was developed to circumvent this rule, but that’s a lie – they were drawing sea monsters poking women long before manga was a thing, much less bizarrely specific manga censorship.
Wait, you can read porn unabashedly on the train in Japan? WTH am I still doing in N. America??
Sometimes you can’t avoid it – there’s even naughty schoolgirl mini-story inserts in some ordinary mangas. If you didn’t know that, you’d just be reading along, turn the page, and bam! Eight pages of porn for no reason.
Even funnier, there’s no rule, in any store, against just standing there and reading the books and magazines without buying. So every bookstore and magazine rack is cluttered with cheap bastards browsing before and after work or school. A female foreigner drifting from aisle to aisle in a bookstore can accidentally empty out the porn section before she’s even looked at enough books to realize she’s in the porn section.
That’s hilarious – the poor salarymen probably never have a good day in tourist season!
Tako to ama… 200 year old tentacle porn FTW!
Their photographer should be fired. What an awful angle. It flatters NO ONE.
The portrait looks like the artist go to the noses and said, “I’ll come back and do this later.” And never did.
I suspect this “portrait” shot was taken with a cell phone held in the female’s left paw.
I bet having only one nostril really cuts down on Kleenex expenditures.
Made to order? You mean, you don’t already have in stock pictures of my husband and I that you can butcher? You need to rethink this “custom” process, bubs.
Should have been Perry and Doctor Doofensmirch.
Leaving out body parts is her thing, like the artist that drew kids with big eyes.
In this one, she leaves out the chins, or most of them anyway.
Noses are partially absent as well.
To be fair though, I rather like her announcements. They’re a little crowded but I kind of like them.
It’s like they fell in love just as an atomic bomb went off.
That’s actually the Photoshopped version of the photo she used to make the painting.
THIS is the actual painting:
Is it just me, or do they both have the same goatees? (sp?)
It’s…not just you.
On the bright side, these two do have noses!
Their noses are awful, but what’s really freaking me out is her lack of eyebrows
Ok, I spoke too soon. The whole thing is freaking me out.
Never mind her, his forehead expand immensely. It’s like he can hammer vintage nails into barnwood with that forehead of his
Hey,now…. There’s nothing wrong with platypi.
This is the wall-art equivalent of letting a relative’s crappy band play at the reception but without the excuse of saying “Ya gotta support family, it only sucked for one evening and we were all drunk anyway.”
This is why wedding portrait photographers don’t take you to Kinko’s and have you put your faces on a copy machine. Thus we get the second example of Goth Girl With Giant Frizzies (Hearts) Guy With Lawn Chair Bib.
This is the perfect wedding gift to be given by anyone who hates either one of them! Particularly ex’s!
Did no one else notice the painting is signed “AH”?
This suggests that anyone who sees this terrifying thing should scream.
Brain has frozen at ‘love nose/knows something something something’…. HELLLPPP…
I thought platypuses were supposed to be cute.
