First we have dolphins, then monkeys. And now, we have alien beings helping coalition forces to stop the threath of Hussein's regime.

This is CNN.

Ha! I hope you get a laugh at this. My favorite prop is back again. I took the picture of the alien, then went to Photoshop and changed the colors to get the green night vision color. Turned on the TV and tried to copy CNN's graphic design in Photoshop. It took me exactly one hour to take the picture, edit it, and submit it to DPChallenge. 30 minutes before the deadline.

The picture isn't all that great. It's the extra editing you've done that really sets this apart and makes it funny. Good!

Spooky, and similar to another photograph on this site. I like it, and the idea. I'm glad you were able to use the text.
