The Morning GIF: After-skull special

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.

Welcome to your Halloween hangover.

How’s your pancreas this morning? No matter how bad a booze hangover is, it’s dwarfed by a sugar hangover.

Oh, we know how it went. “I’m not sure that chocolate toffee is safe, Aldous, better let Daddy taste all of those.”

Aldous is not fooled.

Nor is anyone else, when they see your bilious bod roll into work somewhat late and very green.

Back in the early 1900s, there was a comic strip called the Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend, dedicated to the hallucinogenic nightmares of those who inadvisedly consumed cheese-laden Welsh Rarebit too close to bedtime. For today’s addicts of high fructose corn syrup and an assorted alphabet of synthetic sweeteners, who knows what nightmares might be spawned by an overdose.

They could, however, resemble this psychedelic skull from Alec Mackenzie. Trippy, techno, about as organic as a Deadmau5 set, this is the human condition in a technological wonderland.
