guide to a good hmmm
hmmms are images that make you think about the context, do a double take, invoke a deeper meaning, or just leave you thinking about how or why they exist:
As long as they give you a good solid hmmm... why would that bear be in a cubicle...
If you're not sure if it's hmmm, have a browse of the top content. Photoshops and art are welcome.
- Try and use hq images
- You can reverse image search to find better quality versions
- Crop out parts of the image that don't contribute anything
- Avoid distracting text and context, i.e. website screenshots (product logos are the exception)
- Avoid pics that are trying too hard
- Posts may be removed if they're not hmmm enough or too low quality
good sources for hmmms
- Most boards on 4chan
