Beware of Door

Flickr-er Carl Wycoff spotted this ultra-realistic artwork on an overhead door in Des Moines, Iowa. I know what you’re thinking: That’s a really big tennis ball.

    What did NTMTOM say upon learning of the hovertext error…..

    Oh F#@CH…

  7. It’s Clifford!!!

  8. I think we can close down the internets now. Nothing left to say after that. 🙂

    However… I will say that I think that door is fantastic!!! Great idea and incredible likeness.

  9. WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀 😀 😀

  11. If I was walking by that door I just know that i couldn’t help bopping him on the nose! 😆

  12. You rock….and you were “firsties” too. 🙂

  13. On a completely unrelated note, my office in Waltham MA is closed today. Waltham is one of the towns the authorities have indicated should be in lock-down because of the Boston Marathon bombing. I’ve always thought the word “surreal” was overused in describing unusual situations but this really does feel surreal. I only pray there is no further loss of life before they capture (or kill) the second guy.

    Sorry for the hijack – I just felt the need to post this. 😦

  14. Hmm, I wonder if that opens the door?

  15. My thoughts and prayers are with you and everyone there, Rachael. I came here after reading updates on the situation. I need the qte… 😦

    I do hope the situation is resolved. Yes, surreal is a good word for something like this, isn’t it? I’ll be sending my thoughts out to the universe while enjoying the qte, too. Cute Overload really a panacea for almost anything, isn’t it?

  17. Wouldn’t that be great!!

  18. Hang in there Rachel.

  19. I looked at the picture, did a double-take, then a triple-take. and my brain nearly crashed with a “blue screen of death” while trying to correlate the size of the doggeh and the surroundings.

  20. So if the dog is that big, how big is the owner?!

    I dunno… I think it may not be real. In fact, the whole thing may’ve been done by… A lab-ra-door deceiver! 🙂

  24. Loffs eet! Well punned.

  25. I really wish labrodoggles came in this size. I can see only two downsides:
    1. We’d all be drowning in doggie drool.
    2. You’d need a mining digger to pick up the poop.
    On the plus side the snorgling with such a creature would be heavenly!

  26. Yes .. He’s my ‘little’ lap dog he is …

  27. Well, since no one else went “there”…… I am NOT cleaning up after THAT pup !

  28. I think we need a new category, for “cute or creepy”!

  29. Omg I was sitting here dreaming of how cool it would be to ride my giant pup instead of a car…. And the poop never entered my fantasy! Holy smokes that would be a problem!
