Ben Roethlisberger as a Garbage Pail Kid? Ben Roethlisberger as a Garbage Pail Kid (photo)


Behold, Ben Raunchy Burger, of course the “Garbage Pail Kid” version of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. There is so much gross and wrong going on in this illustration it’s hard to know where to start. Although the steaming turd-burger makes a compelling case for being the nastiest, though. Yeah, that’s the one.

I never got into “Garbage Pail Kids” as a wee lad, but if the geniuses behind the 1980s mega-craze — or anyone else, for that matter — ever managed to secure the rights to release a set of NFL-themed cards? If this creation by artist Chad Lakkis is any indication, I’d even buy a bunch of three-ring card storage binders and some plastic sleeves to keep them safe for years to come.

Just thinking about the multitude of possibilities where a person with more creativity and know-how than I posses could go with this concept is mind-boggling.
