I was expecting much more cruelty than we received, so thanks for that! Running themes included The Simpsons couch, They Live, head swapping and Battle Royale. And while making everyone in the picture wear my face was cute, and the one image that kept making everyone click on it diabolical, ultimately I went with Kcity's awesome '90s-style game magazine spread of the staff as game characters.

That's not to say the rest of your entries weren't amazing! I would never say that. It's rude.
