Mad Mitt
r/PhotoshopBattles has its way with the Republican nominee.

Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Mitt “Mad Mittens” Romney and his sidekick, Paul “Roughshod” Ryan are ready to kick ass and take names, not crap. Coming out of the Republican National Convention with a zero bounce in the polls, they’re in no mood to put up with any guff from those damn pinkos over at the DNC.

Reddit, naturally, is there.

User titleunknown uploaded a photo of Romney and Ryan pointing and laughing, with the challenge “Let’s see what you can do,” and soon enough, s/he saw some wondrous things indeed. DaminDrexel quickly ’shopped it into “Don’t Mess with Mittens,” a Dirty Harry-like image of the very armed and the very dangerous Republican. Never trust a man in a good suit who laughs while shooting a handgun.

Then ListenChump got his mitts on it, and that’s where things become interesting from a GIF column perspective. Adding facial tics that would frighten Norman Bates, a baller background of fanned Benjamins, and some Michael Bay-like explosions, ListenChump transformed Romney into a pyrotechnic golem of death right out of Casino. The whole world loves a good villain, and the stats on Imgur confirm it: 83,000 views and 1,010 points are as good as sworn testimony, Madd Mittens reigns supreme over Reddit’s Photoshop Battles subreddit, but we all know it’s a numbers game, and Barack “Whack” Obama has yet to throw his JPG into the ring.
