Jowling — Head-turning Photo Fun

Jowlers by Ironic SansExaggerated faces that look like they’re made of playdough, expressions that scream cosmetic surgery gone horribly, horribly wrong…

They call it jowling, and here’s how it’s done:

Grab a friend. Ask him to loosen his facial muscles, then shake his head side-to-side, fast. Now fire away. (Use flash for best effect.)

It’s so ridiculously fun and easy, there’s a whole website devoted to it. Check out the hall of fame, the how-to video, and the top jowls.

Remember when you made fugly faces at your sister, and your mom said your face would get stuck that way? This is what it’d look like today if she’d been right.

p.s. We also really dig David’s studio-lit jowlers at Ironic Sans. (Those are his pics above.)
