'Unhappily Ever After' Is A Dark Twist On Disney Classics

Storyboard artist Jeff Hong considers himself privileged to have worked on animated classics such as Hercules, Mulan, and The Emperor's New Groove. Though a rabid Disney fan, Hong has gained some notoriety for his dark series Unhappily Ever After, which superimposes Disney characters into some depressing and sobering situations. It's a good reminder that reality doesn't involve a happy fairy tale ending. And that we can still do things to make the future just a little bit brighter.

Twitter Thread Reveals The Bizarre Genius Of Painted African Movie Posters

We've seen some funky movie posters from the Soviet Union and Poland, but Twitter user @Retr0Joe managed to completely overshadow both with his thread of hand painted African movie posters. Apparently, due to licensing issues, some African movie theaters would hire artists to paint the promotional posters for their theaters. Most of these artists were completely ignorant of the film plots, so they'd have to fake it. And apparently that means a lot more guns, a lot more violence, and unexpected cameos from Michael Jackson. And if these aren't enough for you, there are tons more to be found in the thread.

The New York Times' Hot Take On Mona Lisa Inspires Debate & Sass

Another day, another hot take from The New York Times.Just a little over a week after their controversial review of beloved steakhouse Peter Luger, the newspaper is back with a spicy take on Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa and her place at Paris' Louvre museum. Times art critic Jason Farago scathingly refers to the Mona Lisa as "the Kim Kardashian of 16th-century Italian portraiture." 

Behind the spicy title and harsh wording, Farago actually makes a very reasonable point. He's not suggesting ridding the museum of the Louvre, but posing suggestions for how to make the viewing experience less torturous. According to a poll of British tourists, visiting the painting was ranked as the world's most disappointing attraction. So it's safe to say a lot of people are with Farago. Folks on Twitter, for the most part, relished the controversial opinion piece, making jokes. Some seemed less giddy and, yet, repeated Farago's sentiment in their tweets. Whatever your opinion on the placement of the da Vinci masterpiece, hopefully we can agree that humanity would benefit from reading full articles before shouting their opinions into the internet's ether.
