Uncool

I've been meme-ifying over on Facebook lately. Just little nothings I tinkered up in Photoshop, and most of them no great shakes in the graphic design department — or even in basic message.Apparently you have to click on an image, and then click on it again, in order to see any one of these full-size.The top three are the coolest.
