Yesterday, a photo of Justin Trudeau briefly hesitating before shaking Donald Trump’s hand went viral. So we here at Gizmodo decided to have a little photoshop contest, something we do from time to time. Not everyone was happy about it, of course.
“You are a piece of shit for making these entertaining articles about our president,” one person emailed me. “You are a piece of shit for approving comments on photoshops of president Trump holding shit, a small bronzed penis and many more. I am very specific about the article, you suck and go eat shit.”
I’m not entirely sure what “I am very specific about the article” means, but it’s good to have a healthy debate about the merits of poking fun at our leaders. For the most part, people had a good time riffing on the now infamous photo. There were plenty of references to President Trump’s enormous hands, more than a few nods to Star Wars, and, of course, a healthy dose of bronze genitals.
So without further ado, some of the best entries in our little yuck-em-up contest, beginning with my personal favorite, from the “yuge hands” genre:
