Silly Ass Banners

Banners are pictures that are seriously photoshopped until they are just too silly for words. People create them to make their characters seem important, show their icky love for a canon, show what relationships they want canons to have, or a lot of other generally icky things that you probably don't even want to think about. Banners usually appear in the signature line of an author's posts and they often are like neon signs that point out who the attention whores are. Often forums like proboards, ezboards and so on allow this sort of pretententious jackassery.

Here are a few that I found that are so silly that I laughed really hard at first. Then that laugh turned into long, awkward, pitiful sob for all humanity:

Ooh! Spike sucked on Angel's no-no place. Slashy! I hope Angel has more "Spike wos 'ere" related clothing besides the cute, little wifebeater in this banner. It would be a damn shame if the back of Angel's pants didn't read, "Spike wos 'ere too."

.


Wouldn't it be awesome if Spike was a samarai warrior with Tom Cruise's body and Buffy was a sexy geisha and teens wrote angsty poetry about it all?

.

"I'm just misunderstood, is all. And I could use some Visine too."
.



When I saw this I thought maybe someone was quoting Britney Spears' song "Toxic" and this is for a fanfic about Snape shagging Britney raw. Then I thought, "And that is why Snape rocks!"
.


Speaking of Britneys, here's a Britnay who spelled her banner wrong. Do you get that she's a bad ass Slytherin and her avatar is everyone's favorite little slut, Michelle Trachtenberg? I do care that Michelle's 'sexy face' looks like she's about to puke all over your shoes.

I hope to provide more banners so we can all weep for the future of our children together. If you find one, send me a link so I can post it and we can all share each other's misery.

Obnoxious signature banners like that are why most of your higher quality boards don't allow them.

Thank goodness for cheap ass boards or else I'd have to look harder for the attention whores. I have so little time to find them these days.
