I know at least one or two of these gag shots taken during the filming of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back have been floating around the internet for awhile, but some of them are new to me. These photos feature Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), and C-3PO (Anthony Daniels) hamming it up in poses both playful and, um, provocative.
Man, I want to find the person who drew this and shake his or her hand. Because Andy Griffith as Matlock as Peter Criss from the front of his 1978 Kiss solo album is inspired. For reference, here's the original. Genius. They even nailed the classic Kiss font. Update: Chet Loggins, the creator of this fine work of art, has stepped forward! See the comment section below.

I love me some Carl of Duty: Black Cops, but this is my favorite holiday meme. Hmmm. Needs more sleigh bell.
This is so stupid and funny, I'm pissed I didn't think of it. To whomever put this together -- kudos good sir (or madam)!
I can tell what Tupperware was going for in this ad -- which ran in a 1969 issue of Field & Stream by the way -- but here we have a demonstration of how a very subtle thing can turn a photo from cheeky to creepy. The wife is supposed to convey a mixture of surprise and mild annoyance. To my eyes she looks like she's stifling a scream while her husband polishes his rifle and mutters something about making them all pay. If you ask me, that woman about two seconds from dropping that soda and plate of cheese and running out of that rumpus room as fast as her legs can take her. (For more Almost Ads, click here.)
Did you know that Zooey Deschanel's middle name is Claire? I didn't, because I hate her. Luckily this awesome commercial spoof -- "It's called 'cotton,' you've probably never heard of it." -- from Regretsy helps ease my white-hot rage against all things adorkable just a little bit. Go ahead, watch it again. I already have.
