Tumblr is home to many image editing blogs, such as The Kitten Covers, which replaces human subjects in classic album art with images of cats. As photoshopping gets more creative and unique, desktop artists seek stranger and more innovative ways to leave their mark.
Tumblr blog Gluten-Free Museum takes part in this trend by removing traces of gluten in iconic works of art, pop culture, and visual entertainment scenes.
Beginning in February 2015, the online resource helps those who want in on the diet fad to remove the gluten from their vision as well as their bodies. And those who do have celiac disease will find the edited images both amusing as well as an interesting commentary on the anti-gluten bandwagoners.
Say bye-bye to visual representations of wheat, barley and rye through a peruse of the Gluten-Free Museum.
We all know the breathtakingly romantic epic of Lady and the Tramp, who connect by eating a passionate spaghetti meal and incidentally sharing a long, stringy, tender noodle. Unfortunately, the Gluten-Free Museum keeps the puppy-love apart by removing this vital connection.
Tarantino classic Pulp Fiction removes Samuel L. Jackson’s Royale with Cheese, leaving only a sad, empty fast food paper bag to prove it once existed. English, motherfucker, do you speak it?
Take away the gluten from Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo and all you have are pretty unsubstantial fruits and vegetables. The subject’s body becomes invisible, and a decapitated gluten-friendly head remains.
Clancy Wiggum is in need of a diet and the Gluten-Free Museum has offered to help him by taking his hourly creamy-glazed donuts away from him. Four legs good, two legs bad.
The Gluten-Free Museum doesn’t just erase food. It also removes food-related objects, such as the pitchfork found in Grant Wood’s American Gothic, which symbolizes hard labour and the lifting of hay. Try farming now, you filthy animals.
He’s Andy Warhol, and he never finished (or started) eating a burger. The folks behind the Gluten-Free Museum seem not to have wanted to tempt him, as even the ketchup was removed, despite the condiment being free of gluten.
