For many years, I've been visiting the Worth 1000 web site. They have daily contests where people use PhotoShop or similar programs to make pictures that fit a theme. For example, incorporating Star Wars characters into famous paintings. And today I found that they just completed a "Chop a Ukulele" contest that got 19 entries. "Chop" is a term they use for PhotoShopping a particular thing.

Wow I haven't visited Worth1000 since the old battles with SomethingAwful. Definitely a cut above your average photoshop tennis. Thanks for sharing!

I loved the one with the thorns on the fretboard - makes even the worst case of "sharp fret ends" pretty tame by comparison!

I totally want the Pac-Man uke, If only it existed in real life.

I think that guy just spliced together pictures of the Etsy Pac-Man uke with the soundhole and neck of another uke. The bridge in the Worth1000 picture is exactly the same as on the Etsy uke.
