There's something fascinating about a car shoe that catches the eye and brings on the smiles. When it comes to cars shaped like shoes, many of these vehicles are made for a promotional reason, such as the McDonald clown boot mobile, Oscar Mayer's Wienermobile or the several hand made Reebok cars shaped exactly like their running shoe models. There are a few made just for laughs though, from Brown Oxford's to a Disco Roller Boot on wheels and even a High Heel Car.
For this contest, take any shoe and turn it into a car/vehicle that looks realistic. Here's a great example by Mandrak. Many thanks to williambanzai7 for the themepost.
President Trump fired John Bolton as national security adviser, saying there were several issues, that he strongly disagreed with many of John's suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and asked for his resignation, which he gave.
While Bolton swiftly challenged the president's version of events -- saying he offered to resign -- the two have had well-known disagreements on a range of hot-button national security issues, perhaps most significantly on plans for a troop drawdown in Afghanistan.
Now that John Bolton lost his job as national security adviser, show what other jobs and contracts he might (or might not) be offered next, or how he'll spend his free time. Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player. Many thanks to mrassad for the themepost.
"The Neanderthals are not totally extinct, in some of us they live on - a little bit", says a landmark scientific study. It was previously thought that the Neanderthals were a separate line, and that all modern humans descended from a small population of Africans. However the current study proved that at least some of the modern humans still share parts of their DNA (genome) with the Neanderthals, which effectively means that that part of the ancient humans mated with the Neanderthals.
Show what celebrities or politicians may have Neanderthal genome by photoshopping them as Neanderthals. Don't forget to include celebrity names in your entry titles and please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player. Many thanks to LunaC, for the Themepost .
This Sunday is National Grandparents Day, and is rooted in the work of two committed pioneers: Jacob Reingold and Marian McQuade. They wanted a special day of recognition for the role of millions of older Americans who are grandparents, and who have wisdom, perspectives and key civic values to share with young people. Through their efforts, in 1978 the United States Congress passed legislation proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day, signed by President Jimmy Carter.
In celebration of National Grandparents day at Freaking News, turn any celebrities into grandpas and grandmas by aging them. Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player. Many thanks to lucianomorelli for the Themepost .
This will be a sequel to our Flipped Celebrity Profiles contest. Taking Side-profile photos, and vertically flipping just the face on it. Only the mouth and the eye changes place, and will naturally resemble one another upon such transformation.

Like these examples: Tom Hardy by Craftlord, James Barrett by Hitspinner, and Pmurt by Denlig. Don't forget to include celebrity names in your entry titles. Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player.

Labor Day weekend is just around the corner. Doug Larson once said: "If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day Weekend."
To celebrate the upcoming Labor Day at Freaking News, design any motivational or demotivational poster asking Americans to work harder. Here's a good example by Hitspinner.
Try to make them mimic the classic (de)motivational posters format like this example by GarRobMil and this example by rwpike. Black background, image in the middle, and the title word(s) and a (de)motivational text message, like in the examples above. Please Note: Limit 3 Entries Per Player. Many thanks to skitterchick for the themepost.
NOTE: as an exception to our rules, in this contest you are allowed to recycle any of your previous entries of FN and use it for the central image in your demotivational poster.
Rock legend Bruce Springsteen - also known as The Boss to his legion of loyal fans - is celebrating an important milestone Monday. He's turning 70. As a child Bruce dreamed of becoming a baseball star. He nearly gave up on his other dream of becoming a guitar player - believing his hands were too small to play the instrument. Springsteen has won a total of 20 Grammy Awards, sold more than 64 million albums in America alone, and 135 million worldwide. Happy birthday, Bruce! Many thanks to Hitspinner for the Themepost.
