This weekend we were rocked from our slumber by an email containing the link to Chicks With Steve Buscemi Eyes, a haunting and perverse creation from the mind of someone who is surely not well, mentally or spiritually.
The premise is simple: Use Photoshop to paste the eyes of renowned character actor Steve Buscemi onto the faces of some of the most attractive and roundly lusted-after female singers and starlets for the disgust of everyone.
Just a pair of Buscemi's eyes can turn even the most beautiful faces, like that of Angelina Jolie or Beyonce Knowles, into hideous hags rivaling the decomposing visages of zombies or even Katherine Heigl.
I actually looked at each one and took a deep breath and asked myself if I would still take accept each actress, even with her red, forlorn, possum-like Buscemi eyes, but with her body intact, and my brain screamed "Kill it with fire!"
And poor, poor Katy Perry. I have retracted my bid to be your third husband. I just can't do this anymore. See you around?
