Keisuke Yamada Creates Banana Art That Will Haunt Your Nightmares (And Breakfasts)

Banana00

We all know that bananas and banana peels are excellent sources of potassium and physical comedy, respectively, but did you know that they could also be used as a medium for art that will alternately amuse you and haunt you to your grave? Neither did I until I saw the work of Japanese "banana engraver" Keisuke Yamada, who has carved presumably edible versions of all manner of pop culture figures and/or mind-bending horrors.

Check out a few of our favorites -- including characters from Attack on Titan, The Simpsons, Alien, Transformers, Castle in the Sky and Star Wars -- below, and don't worry: If one of these pops up in your breakfast tomorrow, you can always defend yourself with Yamada's flintlock pistol. The flintlock pistol is also carved from a banana.

George Lucas’ First-Draft ‘The Star Wars’ Script Comics Adaptation Gets A Trailer And New Art [Video]

TheStarWars

Darth Vader would have had no mechanical suit, and Anakin (or Annikin) Skywalker would have been an entirely different guy. Luke would have been a bearded, older guy.

Folks who are curious about how that version of the story would have played out will get their chance to see just that when Dark Horse starts up an eight-issue adaptation of that original script Sept. 4. USA Today snagged a video trailer for the series, along with a preview, which you can catch after the cut.

oswalt-lede

Following Patton Oswalt's fully improvised filibuster/rant on Parks and Recreation -- in which he spent nearly eight minutes sharing his pitch for a Star Wars/Marvel film crossover in the next installment in the Star Wars film franchise -- the folks at Entertainment Weekly have created a mash-up poster of all of his suggestions. All of this, of course, means we are now one step closer to this film being made. I mean, Disney once made a movie based on a theme park ride, so really anything can happen.

Tomorrow's episode is no different, as this time they're taking a shot at much debated filibuster reform, and they've enlisted the help of Patton Oswalt to do so. Oswalt, playing the role of one of Pawnee
