Neat article about deep fakes. You know, where they take an image and make a pretty convincing animated version of it. They’ve got it so they can work off a single still image. Watch them Facebook profile pics, everyone!

Unfortunately, you’ll have to go to Twitter to see the animated version of Mona Lisa.

Which brings us to Mona Weasel here. It’s a thing I did for a website I used to do, years before this blog. A thousand years ago in internet terms. I stopped updating it and then one day the URL got poached by Japanese schoolgirl porn, or something.

I got me an internet footprint goes back to the Eighties. I’ve been saying stupid stuff in public for three decades.

My P’shop skills have improved somewhat, anyhow.

Japanese school girl weasels?

I really like the ‘hands’ in the photo.

“ I knew Mona Weasel. Mona Weasel was a friend of mine. That, madam, IS Mona Weasel!”

“enigmatic smile“? “Disapproving grimace” seems more like it.

That “enigmatic smile” title prompted me to do an image search for a smiling weasel. I immediately had to turn on “safe search” (who knew!???) but even then I didn’t see much in the way smiles.

But the search did turn up this. Don’t ask me what this is all about; I have no idea and I’m not at all sure I want to know. But it sure did grab my attention.

Deep fakes have a certain dadaistic appeal. I can’t wait to see the video of Jean-Claude Juncker tongue kissing Marine Le Pen. Or maybe the Kim Jung Un vs. Michael Moore arm wrestling match.

@uncle Al – And we often wonder when we come across some piece of thing left behind in a grave or spot and we conclude – it must have been some item of religious worship or other useful thing.

When in reality it was just an ancient version of that weasel carcass mounted on stilts.

I will forever remember the phrase “The Year of the Suck”.

Yes Weas, been a long while. Seems the Auntie Weasel stuff was archived somewhere? Don’t see it off hand.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
