A dark force has been gathering in secret for years, sitting dormant on the Internet, quietly biding its time and waiting for its moment. That dark force is "nutscaping," the practice of taking a photo of lovely scenery with your testicles dipping into the top of the shot like some wrinkly, hair-speckled hell cloud. According to the Nutscapes Tumblr, these "-Selfies for real Men-" actually started all the way back in 2007, but are just now gaining Internet notoriety. That means that, going forward, no nature photo is safe from dudes who think it's a great idea to whip their nuts out. (Warning: The photos below have NSFW amounts of ball in them if that was somehow unclear.)
Majestic. Wait, not "majestic." "Kind of gross." That's the phrase.
"Your balls look like they're having a wonderful time."
And the trend has arrived just in time for men everywhere to try to sneak testicles into the top of their holiday photo cards.
So, it's going to be, what...a month until someone trying to take a nutscape gets arrested for indecent exposure?
You can see more balls encroaching on pretty photos on the Nutscapes Tumblr.
