The top 15 out of a 36-quip week.

A / No. 17 / Armin / Taking the tilt-shift technique — where the subjects of a photograph look as if they were miniatures — taken to the next logical step: Tilt-shift stop motion animation.

C / No. 20 / Myles / Sign of the times. McDonald’s changes value menu because of financial crisis.

A / No. 19 / Armin / A collection of 1960s Mexican postage stamps turned into a bookmark. But beyond anything else, the stamp at the bottom, with all that Cooper Black? Drool.

A / No. 27 / Armin / 30% of the profits from this cardboard box inspired duvet go to charities that help the homeless. [Via Sub Studio]

Pesky ’s comment is:

The one about the metal plate messages inside back packs going through airport security is one of those ideas that seem hilarious until you try it.
Shoot, I got pulled over for having the wrong size water bottle in my carry-on....I asked if I drank half if it would qualify...they kept me there almost past boarding time for that joke, the goons.
