With the 2017 presidential inauguration ceremonies happening Friday, the news this week has been wall-to-wall politics. To give you a break from cabinet appointments, hearings and the inauguration, I decided to post something totally off-topic. Not just off-topic, but too funny to pass up.
I was browsing Reddit's Photoshop Battles today when I saw that someone posted a picture of a guy holding a beer high in the air while dancing at a wedding. At first I thought it would be a pretty boring battle, but it only took a few of the submissions before I was hooked.
Check out the original photo, which is sort of funny (definitely the facial expression), but seems like a pretty standard occurrence at a wedding:
Then the regulars at /r/photoshopbattles took over and it wasn't just the initial ideas that were clever, it was also the follow-up posts. First, check out the dancing man as a Tusken Raider (they were also called sand people) from "Star Wars":

Finally, whenever there's someone dancing, it's never a bad idea to include them in the iconic dancing scene from "Pulp Fiction":
