John Winston Howard, DJ

Photograph of newspaper images of John Howard, modified to add hand-drawn headphones to make him look like a DJ

This image is a work of genius, I think. Sure, the Daily Telegraph started it with a set of three fine photos of John Howard. But the modifications by our unknown pen-wielding humourist are simply superb.

This was passed to me via too many links to track down the source. So if anyone knows the creator of this piece, please tell me so I can give proper credit.

Yes, the photo has the C-word in it. Grow up, we’ve all heard it before…

    @eddy: I would have thanked you personally for your inspired artwork, but you did not leave your real email address. Silly person.

    sorry eddy, but i believe this is the person who actually created it [URL deleted].

    @cc and @eddy: Unless either of you is prepared to use a real email address and come up with something even remotely like evidence, I call bullshit on your stories.

    It strikes me that anyone who created such an image would remember where it happened. And they would have shown at least one real human friend who could vouch for their story.

    I just deleted the link you provided, cc, because it didn’t link to a person but to the Facebook page for some Melbourne-based fashion label. So I figured you’re just doing some lame low-rent SEO. Not interested.

    Of course, either of you can reverse my opinion immediately with evidence. Over to you.
