    Default Ridiculous ebay post of the day

    By the name of Monroe, what manner of photoshop knavery is this?

    https://ebay.us/TR1qk1

    Or is the happy hipster just a really small happy hipster playing a normal electric 90 dollar mandolin and totally grooving on it?

    I just had to share.

    Or maybe a 3-year-old with a beard? The photo's been discussed here before, but that's my guess and I'm stickin' to it!

    Oh, sorry, didn't realize this was beating a dead horse (sized mando.)

    My bad but still funny the first time you see it.

    Photoshop magic. The Happy Hipster's left hand is straight off a guitar. Remove guitar, insert mando, everyone's happy.

    He’s playing finger-style mandolin using power-chords. Maybe it’s actually an octave mandolin, which would account for the oversized body......
