And then I Photoshipped them.
This sort of ill-advised creativity usually comes with a sleep-deprivation disclaimer but I’ve been sleeping very solidly over the long Easter weekend, so I may just have to face up to the possibility that this is just what the inside of my head looks like all the time, as a certain unlicensed starship medical officer once said.
