It's the Wednesday WTF? wherein we randomly select a photo/video/thing that makes us say those three special words.

"Fur on fur" may not be new to you. And no, we don't mean that as dirty as it sounds.

If you're on DeviantArt or are a fanatic of BoingBoing and the like, you could've seen Tyler Edlin's masterful interpretation of a crossbow-wielding Chewbacca and his faithful squirrel-ride taking down Nazi forces and muttered "What the fuck?!" back last year.

But, see, the timing here is not entirely the point. As an arts and culture blog, and what with A-Kon and Comic Con having just left the buildings, the Star Wars hook of this commissioned work of actual art -- serious, serious art -- is what caught our attention.

Also, that it was a wedding gift. That actually might be the best part.

Now, normally, the Wednesday WTF? would only feature one thing. But we've taken an effed-up shine to Edlin. After the jump find out what Tony the Tiger's been doing on the weekends when the Civil War reenactments are all booked up.

OK, fine. So it's not Tony the Tiger, but some crazy cat named Landers in Commodore Cornelius' crew. Whatever. It's awesome.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
