Suggestion: GIS Syndrome get usage counts

I remember that there was an image for this trope a while ago, but it seems to be gone now. Anyway this trope is about when photos are used for backgrounds (which is prominent in webcomics, but also used in other media). Does anyone know any material we can use for an image.
I can't think of anything good for a signature.

I'm not seeing any image on here as far back as 2010, if it matters.

I know i'm beating a dead horse but I feel like we could use an image from [1]'s Bubble Memories, as these are ALL GIS B Gs.
A witty signature here.
Here is one from QUILTBAG.

You're overthinking this. Just type 'google image search syndrome' into google and use the first relevant picture that comes back. :P

[up] Okay.

ED: Oh, first relevant picture, not just first picture period. Whoops!

Anyway, instead of me failing to be funny, maybe something from this page on Limbo of the Lost, notoriously god-awful video game that was pulled from the market due to flagrant plagiarism in art assets? (Mostly ripping backgrounds from popular video games and making a very minimal effort to modify them via Photoshop, but apparently GIS images were used too.)

I think obvs photo clashing with cartoonly art is more self-evident.

Bumping this and lock-hollering before it gets forgotten.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
