Drawings Of My Stupid Brother App

Drawings Of My Stupid Brother

We all did it when we were kids. We all drew pictures of our stupid brothers… Isn’t it time that we finally expose them to the light of public domain?

Now with the advent of sophisticated touch-devices like the iPhone and iPad, you can share these hidden masterworks with the world!

You start by providing detailed information about yourself, your family, drug history, allergies and known or suspected affiliations with left-wing groups. Concerned about having to re-enter things later? Don’t be. The app keeps all this information securely on its internal network of servers, and conveniently remembers your most personal information the instant you login again.

Next ask your Mom to scan and email one of the many drawings you did of your stupid brother. If she’s not that technically savvy, ask your folks to hold the drawing up to their FaceTime camera while you snap a screenshot. Then submit it, sit back, and watch the memes begin.

How does it work?

Designed by the U.S. State Department, Drawings Of My Stupid Brother App uses facial recognition to guess which stupid brother you drew. It does this by searching its vast database of recordings made at entryways to stadiums, airports and casinos to track where your stupid brother has been and where he’s likely to go next. It’s like turning on Lo-Jack for your stupid brother.

As soon as your drawing is live, alienated brothers just like you can use the following criteria to rate it:

  1. if you remembered to draw the nose
  2. which of you was the cowboy and which was the indian
  3. hints of youthful aspirations toward nationalism

It’s fun for the whole family!

Unexplainable X-Rays App

Unexplainable X-Rays App

Got a crazy x-ray of yourself and want to get it out there into the public domain? Now there’s an app for that!

Remember the missing gerbil incident? You said it would never happen again. Then it did! LOL! Certainly we can joke about it now… but the memories are so distant. And who wants to search through health files or dial the emergency room again just to find your scratched-up old x-ray?

After today’s hi-res update for iPad and iPhone 4, that memory is just a “touch” away.

An iPhone X-Ray App like no other? This unique personal photo-sharing collection requires no description for any image. Just upload and tag each one using a convenient and ever-expanding dropdown list (“nail,” “scissors,” “lost beads” or “stuck fist”) and the app’s internal sorting methods will organize the rest. Nothing is news to this wild and wacky community.

Inappropriately Doctored Photos App

Inappropriately Doctored Photos

The final solution for user submitted image upload apps. Share inappropriately doctored photos of historical monuments and moments. In this community, a vote of “shopped” is a vote of confidence. Banned because of a seemingly inconsequential copyright infringement issue. Down with DRM! Down with the NET Act! And the WWII Historical Society!

Star Wars Pets App

Star Wars Pets

Photo sharing and online slideshow app for dogs who look like Wookiees, cats who resemble Princess Leia and pet turtles who could pass as stunt doubles for the emerging head of a giant exogorth. — “This is no cave!”

Apple censors may have been uncomfortable with an occasional and fleeting reference to a certain movie franchise.

George Lucas, we love you but do you really have to go after the pets of your biggest fans?!?

Bacon Bra App

Bacon Bra iPhone App

Photo upload app featuring women clad only in bacon.

Rumor has it that the developers planned to release a high-end version called Prosciutto Panties App (priced roughly five times what Bacon Bra initially cost) as well as a Dagwood version called Piled-High Mortadella, Salami, Provolone, Meatball, Horseradish and Mayonnaise Lingerie for iPhone.

Unfortunately the startup responsible for these apps abandoned development efforts when rejected by the quick-to-judge App Store censors.

User-submitted photos of faces when resolving constipation. That not enough? Need something more to part with your ninety-nine cents?
