Poor Image: Die Chair Die get usage counts

Satan and his staff
"Whoever is in that hover-car is having a very bad day."

The image is pretty incomprehensible. I'm assuming the silver yellow... frog... thing in the middle is the protagonist, or something? And the blue thing in the corner is the hover car? And the yellow frog is throwing the hover car or something... then again, it's a hover car, so isn't it completely normal for it to be in the air like that? In fact, it looks more like the yellow frog is being hit on the head with the car...

All in all, the image is confusing and doesn't seem to illustrate the trope ("You can interact with your environment, but only by smashing it." - is there any real smashing going on in the picture?)

Maybe a picture of Maxwell from Scribblenauts literally attacking a chair?

[up] Technically that's a meme image, and we don't allow those as page pics.

[up][up] How's that? This is neither a Lolcat nor a Demotivator. We don't disallow every picture that has a meme on it.
Special trousers. Very heroic.

[up][up]Agree.

[up]Pictures with nothing other than the meme, e.g. trollface, are disallowed even when they're not lolcats or demotivators.

I notice the famous Car-destroying bonus challenge from the Street Fighter games is listed among the examples. Maybe I can find a pic.

Well, that was easier than I thought.

Also: BWAHAHAHA! This would be suitable in itself if it wasn't already the whole comic.

[up] The game pic is great provided it resizes cleanly.

I wanted to find a before and after pic showing the car's owner crying out in misery after seeing it get destroyed, but everything had another website's watermark on it.

[up] Isn't that from Final Fight and not SF 2?

[up] "Oh! My car" is, although I think they added it into Street Fighter IV as well.

My vote goes to 12 too.

I can't think of anything good for a signature.

Indeed, it originated in Final Fight, and was brought back along with the original gas station in Metro City where it was located for Street Fighter IV.

I think I remember reading that it was actually the gas station's owner's car, and he was voluntarily working with the Mad Gear gang.

Anyways... Caption suggestions:

"Why is Ken destroying an innocent car? JUST BECAUSE HE CAN."

"Illegally parked on a dock? That car is going to be removed one way or another."

12 with 19 as a caption is good with me.

"I'm an angry video game fighter. I just got my butt handed to me by the weakest character on the roster and I've got a lot of steam to blow off. Luckily this car is parked in a convenient, picturesque locale with no one around...perfect for some serious property damage. If you settled for some cut-rate insurance policy, it might not cover this vehicular homicide. Get Allstate, and be better protected from mayhem...like me."
