And that’s it! All the entries are in and after looking through all of them, I think one thing is clear: the events of WWII have been terribly misunderstood.

Congrats to this week’s winner: Ravel. What can I say, I love me some War Horse. He single-hoofedly won the first great war, so why not bring him out of retirement for round two? Games only continue to struggle with plumbing the emotional depths of love and war because they’ve never married the two with a beloved, four-legged animal.

The rest of these powerful photoshops are below. You’ll never look upon the tragedy that claimed millions the same way again. In fact, I don’t think we even need to play Activision’s new World War II game after witnessing the horrors embedded in last week’s call for entries.

Thanks again to everyone for making this latest contest resounding success and come back tomorrow to checkout next week’s theme. And congratulations to Ravel who was a first time entrant!

I’m a little upset that no one posted a Conkers Bad Fur Day shop. My pc is out of commission at the moment or else I would have...

But yeah, kidding aside, I’m happy there was a shop for this. Good job folks!
