You would think an idea as obscure as drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles onto the noses of people in photographs would be a surprise new Tumblr, but I’m actually more surprised it’s taken until Fall 2011 to get here. The idea is simple and weird and geeky and combines celebrity with something from our collective childhoods: it’s pretty much everything you could ever ask for in a single-serving site.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Noses (“God is the artist. I just find the ninja turtle in his work.”) cranked up two weeks ago and judging from recent web recognition and this new Vanna White entry the site is just getting started. I anticipate some increasing meta-ness as it peaks in popularity over the next few weeks. Maybe April O’Neil dressed as April O’Neil with drawn on April O’Neil nose and Donatello cleavage? Is that even possible? I don’t know. Pay no attention to me. I’m just riffing here.
Anyhoo, the celebrity TMNT noses are of course the most entertaining. Here are the ten finest in no specific order.
