I appreciate artists who have the vision, the skill and a steady hand that can create works of art. This guy takes dolls of actors and actresses (in various roles) and repaints their faces to more accurately reflect their likeness.

I totally appreciate talent, skill and artistic vision in any form, but that was totally uncanny valley for me.  I have to admire his detail work and skill, though.  Still.  Very uncanny valley.

Meanwhile in New Zealand....

A Redditor asks what life in New Zealand is like, Reddit responds with hilarity.

Examples:
"Something people who come to New Zealand might not be aware of is that the government provides four sheep for every person. Be sure to ask at the airport! Even if you're just visiting, you can have four sheep to follow you around while you're here. Some people feel quite bad that they missed out on their sheep."

"You will find that the drivers here are exceptional, helpful and forgiving of foreigners who come from countries where they drive on the right. Especially in Canterbury. If you leave your hazards on and drive slowly, it's customary for the locals to treat you with care."

As someone I know suggested, it's possibly an older comic that has simply has its caption updated, perhaps regularly to match whatever is popular at the time.

Even then, that is damn impressive.

I couldn't find the thread on "crazy lookin' places to set a scene," so I'll leave the link here:
