This Photoshop genius takes requests on Twitter and the results are hilarious.

We live in a world of Photoshop, Autotune, and computer-generated graphics where beauty, talent, and reality can be easily manipulated at the click of a mouse.

But you can’t fake funny.

Photoshop wizard James Fridman has been bending reality in a hilarious way on social media by manipulating photos sent to him by his followers. Like a DJ taking requests, he reworks the photos, but they never come out like you’d think.

While at first glance it looks like trolling, Fridman is simply poking fun at the all the vapid self-promotion you see on social media.


“I don’t consider myself a graphic designer, it is more of a hobby,” he told The Telegraph. “When I first started using image manipulation software, it was something new and not as widespread as it is now, so everyone was learning and experimenting."

"I did some funny edits for friends and family, and they ended up on the internet," he continued. "Apparently, people found it quite entertaining and asked for more – that’s how I ended up creating my Twitter account.”

Here are some of Fridman’s greatest hits.

There is a strange right-wing logic that suggests when minorities fight for equal rights it's somehow a threat to the rights already held by those in the majority or who hold power.

Like when the Black Lives Matter movement started, many on the right claimed that fighting for black people to be treated equally somehow meant that other people's lives were not as valuable, leading to the short-lived All Lives Matter movement.

This same "oppressed majority" logic is behind the new Straight Pride movement which made headlines in August after its march through the streets of Boston.

For most of us, the hypothetical question of whether we would stick with a boyfriend or girlfriend through the trials of cancer and the treatments is just that – a hypothetical question. We would like to think we would do the right thing, but when Max Allegretti got the chance to put his money where mouth is, he didn't hesitate for a second.

Where did we go wrong as a society to make women feel uncomfortable about breastfeeding in public?

No one should feel they have the right to tell a woman when, where, and how she can breastfeed. The stigma should be placed on those who have the nerve to tell a woman feeding her child to "Cover up" or to ask "Where's your modesty?"

Breasts were made to feed babies. Yes, they also have a sexual function but anyone who has the maturity of a sixth grader knows the difference between a sexual act and feeding a child.

The Me Too movement has shed light on just how many actresses have been placed in positions that make them feel uncomfortable. Abuse of power has been all too commonplace. Some actresses have been coerced into doing something that made them uncomfortable because they felt they couldn't say no to the director. And it's not always as flagrant as Louis C.K. masturbating in front of an up-and-coming comedian, or Harvey Weinstein forcing himself on actresses in hotel rooms.

But it's important to remember that you can always firmly put your foot down and say no. While speaking at The Hollywood Reporter's annual Actress Roundtable, Jennifer Lopez opened up about her experiences with a director who behaved inappropriately. Laura Dern, Awkwafina, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o, and Renee Zellweger were also at the roundtable.
