The Fat Axl Rose meme has found a new iteration, and the world is a better place for it. New blog Hungry Time Traveler posits the theory that Axl Rose has the power to travel through time, and he also gets hungry during his voyage, so he brings a snack. No wonder he’s always late. Like Steven Seagal, Axl Rose lives outside of space and time.
The site was created by Matsby, a non-profit sector employee with several other blogs. After the break are some of our favorite photoshops from Matsby plus a couple we made, like the picture above of Axl noshing on gnocchi while Gandhi is on a hunger strike (so insensitive, that Axl). The rest of the photos are at Hungry Time Traveler, and Matsby’s commentary on each photo is also worth a read.

“Ever since the first time I heard Axl sing the Guns n Roses classic “Civil War”, I knew those weren’t the words of someone who learned about the war from books, but rather those were the words of a man who had witnessed the horrors for himself through the miracle of time travel. And I also thought they sounded like the words of a guy who would have enjoyed a tube of Gogurt while witnessing those horrors. Years later when this photograph first surfaced, it turns out I was right on both accounts.” — Matsby
