Websites with googly eyes

If there is one thing in this world that is guaranteed to make things a lot less srs bsns, it's googly eyes.

If there is one thing in this world that is guaranteed to make things a lot less srs bsns, it's googly eyes.

Googly eyes can turn the most serious moment, the most solemn face — and convert it into the most sublime absurdist comedy. Here are three of our favourite websites for a googly-eyed pick-me-up.

X-Men with Googly Eyes

There's something about seeing Marvel's so-serious and dramatic X-Men of the 80s and 90s googlified that makes us laugh and laugh. Hats off to blog creator Dwain for sticking all those eyes on by hand, too — the man's got an eye for placement. So to speak.

Magic Cards with Googly Eyes

How do you make a tense round of Magic: The Gathering even more brilliant? Googly eyes. Admittedly, a deck stuck with googly eyes might be a little harder to shuffle, but at least you'd be guaranteed a laugh when playing the Wood Elemental. Alas, blog creator Amanda doesn't update very often, but it's worth keeping in your Tumblr follow list for a surprise laugh once in a while.

Edith with Googly Eyes

In the first season of Downton Abbey, middle sister Lady Edith Crawley was a character that the audience loved to hate a little — deliberately making drama and trouble for older sister Mary. She got a bit nicer in the second season, but there's still something utterly hilarious about an upper-crust noblewoman with giant derpy eyes.
