C / No. 18 / David McCanless / While some have difficulty with the cuteness versus deliciousness ratio — that adorable little face, those itty-bitty claws — many feel that eating squirrel is a way to do something good for the environment…

A / No. 2 / Armin / Painting and sketching on the iPhone.

A / No. 11 / Armin / Thank God you’re a Man,” is a print campaign for Goldstar Beer that flowcharts the ease of being a man (as opposed to, you know, a woman) and drinking beer. I have to say, this walks a very fine line between good and bad taste.

I agree that the "Thank God You're a Man" posters walk the line between good and bad taste. Reminds me of the new Chevrolet ads that have Howie Long making fun of someone using the "man step" safety feature on one competitor's truck and making fun of another man for having had a manicure, suggesting these men are not manly. Maybe Howie can give someone a wedgie and throw him into a locker in the next one?
