reddit noir

"The rain keeps up it's patter late into the night. Reminds me of my ex-wife. And that i'm thirsty... all i've got left is water."
This was what was going through the mind of artist (and redditor) M. Koperwas when he created this dark take on our affable alien. If you think about it, being a mascot who spends every minute of its life in the top-left corner of a website isn't the most fulfilling life. Especially when you have to smile all the damn time.

It seems plausible that in another life, the reddit alien broods on a rainy street corner with a scowl and a cigarette. I love it. Thanks for the submission, M.
