Toronto-based animator and artist Aiden Glynn of Pizza and Pixels (previously featured here) has been livening up the Liberty Village neighbourhood by creating goofy, googly-eyed characters out of the urban landscape with the clever addition of handmade facial features like eyes, teeth, and lolling tongues. Aiden calls this particular form of street art “toon bombing” and we think it’s wonderful.
For more Toon Bombing, follow Aiden here on Tumblr at Pizza and Pixels.

The days have grown cold and short, Lovecraftian Solstice Carols can be heard on the wind, and in the Portland, OR home of Maika, co-editor of the Geyser of Awesome, the spot on the living room floor where betentacled trees have stood in years past has suddenly begun to darken and roil. Cthulhumas approaches and it’s time to pay tribute.
Dread Cthulhu still waits dreaming, but this year the Cthulhumas tree awoke. Its eyes are a pair of Giant Christmas Tree Googly Eyes that were altered with spray paint, paint pens, and markers. The wings were made using wire hangers, floral wire and tape, green cellophane, and the helpful guidance of a wing-making Instructable created by mercifulmaenad. Small sacrifices of blood, skin, and cherished cloth were made in the process and eldritch incantations were murmured.
Now the tree watches, unblinking. Sometime, just of the corner of an eye, the blue lights flicker and its tentacles appear to writhe. In the middle of the night the soft rustling of cellophane wings has been heard. The tree never sleeps.
Merry Cthulhumas friends. May the deep dark sleep of the Great Old Ones continue undisturbed.

We see all sorts of impressively ugly Christmas sweaters this time of year, but ugly Hanukkah sweaters are much less common. This dazzling specimen is a cornucopia of holiday awesomeness. Featuring googly-eyed reindeer, fuzzy letters, and frilly gold trim, it’s also proudly worn by a gentleman sporting a fantastic mustache. We think that magnificent cookie duster is like icing on a cake.
This photo is from the collection of Brian Clark Howard, co-author of a book called Rock Your Ugly Christmas Sweater.

The internet has found another awesomely entertaining use for googly eyes and it’s here on Tumblr as a new blog called Googly Eye Books. Any and all book covers become something wonderfully silly as soon as you add a googly eye or two. Viewers are also welcome to submit their own googly-eyed books to the site.
The images you see here are a very small sample of the entertainment in store. Follow Googly Eye Books to see them all.
And remember, whenever you need more googly eyes, our Googly Eye shop has got you covered.
Redditors SirTenderBeard and yokramer each used pairs of our Giant Googly Eyes to transformer their respective cars into awesomely entertaining anthropomorphic vehicles. The best part is that each car has its own unique facial expression.
We made a short video to show off the awesomeness of our Googly Eyes Luggage Tag.
Reddit user mrpauloldham posted this picture of an unnamed and awesome friend of his exercising with Richard Simmons while he eats her ponytail. Of course, we couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw Richard’s outfit was made of Emergency Googly Eyes.
We know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but we’re sure you’ll see eye to eye with us on this one. That’s no eyesore, it’s one eye-catchingly awesome outfit. Richard Simmons is truly the king of exerceyes. (We apologize for this paragraph. We couldn’t resist.)
