For as long as I can remember, garbage pail kids have claimed their stake in pop culture.  Though the cards are iconic of the 80’s, throw-backs have been rampant throughout the web ever since.  Vivid line drawings paired with parodical humor can be found on Street Carnage, while printed on home goods, at Alakazam.  Using ski masks to conceal his characters’ identities, Bryan Schnelle, a west coast artist, illustrates his alternative reality, admitting, “nothing is what is seems, people aren’t who you think they are, don’t trust [anything], and question everything.” Though this concept of ulterior identities may seem extreme, it has laid the foundation for many plots. For the twisted comedians among us, it validates the satire behind the punch line.
